About

Thx for your interest in reading this introduction of my project. My project, this weaving loom is based upon years of passion for textiles, mechanics and PLC control. In this context I developed in recent years this automated wooden loom. This prototype was realized over a period of 4 years in my attic and in my garden shed. Where it is located now… Although it initially was not the intention to extract this personnel project any further, I was continually motivated by friends and acquaintances and also outsiders to lift this project to a higher level. By previous exhibition there even was interest from the industry to take over the prototype. However, I have spent a lot of time and hours and passion into the project, so I choose to take the next step to turn the prototype into a production worthy model myself. For this purpose all the elements and drawings must be realized and developed. I have chosen to use aluminum as raw material. There are little more then 250 wooden parts to be converted in aluminum parts. This weaving machine will be able to weave continuously ( so automated ) fabric up to 100 cm widht. Target group for this loom will be private people (hobbyists).

Risks and challenges

Major advantage of this project is that the foundation is already very well prepared. There is a working prototype that is fully functional. I got a clear view on what is required to successfully deliver the entire project. Difficulty may be the time frame, but with the necessary funds I’m able to restructure my time so there is sufficient space to show my funders step by step my progression when I go along. I have partners who will support me with pleasure, though certainly not for free as there is highly specialized machinery involved to produce the parts.
