Rapier loom
Rapier looms have unique advantages in variety adaptability, but the weft insertion rate is lower than that of air-jet looms, only 1400m/min, which is about 50% of that of air-jet looms; the silk return rate is higher than other shuttleless looms. At present, rapier looms are mainly used for the production of small batches and a variety of weft fabrics such as decorative objects.

Projectile Loom
The projectile loom has advantages in weaving extra-wide fabrics and high-end decorative fabrics, but the weft entry is lower than that of the air-jet loom, at 1200m/min; the energy consumption for projectile acceleration is only 15%, and the energy consumption is unreasonable; The material performance of the shuttle torsion shaft and the precision of the weaving mechanism are relatively high; the price is expensive, and the one-time investment cost is large.

Water jet loom
Water jet looms have limitations in the quality of weaving, and are only suitable for the weaving of hydrophobic yarns such as synthetic fibers and glass fibers. The relevant components on the loom should be made of stainless steel.

Multiphase loom
Multiphase looms can weave with extremely high weft insertion rates. But it can only produce simple ordinary fabrics, and the power consumption per square meter of fabric is higher than other shuttleless looms.
