A Powerhouse That's Easy To Love
The AVL Industrial Dobby
Loom offers a wide range of weaving options for industrial sampling or small scale production. It represents a startling union of advanced electronics and pneumatics with AVL's tried and true loom technology.
Light, medium, and even heavy-weight fabrics of virtually all yarn types; natural, spun, and filament are all capable of being woven on the IDL. The wide range of applications extend from plain weaves to complex 24 harness dobbys.
Spun yarns of natural and man-made fibers as well as filament yarns in a very wide range of yarn counts are all possible. The loom performs well with medium density cotton, heavy novelty yarns (chenille), and super-fine silk among others.
The IDL is available in two reed widths: 24" (61 centimeters) and 60" (152 centimeters).
Sturdy ash members connect to the heavy-duty side frames with special locking hardware to help insure rigidity and low vibration. The control units are housed in fully enclosed boxes of the finest Finnish birch.
The sley rides on twin stainless steel rods. The beat is even and smooth, always striking the fell line at a perfect 90º angle. Self-aligning bearings ensure a lifetime of smooth performance.
