[36 Pages / April, 2007 /

Weaving sector of the Indian textile industry is 
undergoing a rapid
transformation with the introduction of a large 
number of shuttleless looms
and state of the art preparatory machines. 
The vision document of the
industry for 2007 – 2012 envisages an investment of
Rs. 38,000 crores in
the weaving sector. With technology change, new 
bench marks need to be
provided to the industry in order to be competitive
in the current market
scenario.
Benchmarking is not a mere exercise in target 
setting but in assisting in
ways and means of achieving the set targets. It is
here that BTRA with its
vast experience of shop-floor studies, consultancy
assignments and
interaction with the industry, has built up a 
reservoir of expertise in weaving
technology as in all areas of textile manufacture.
The weaving norm s in this booklet are a revision of
our earlier norms.
This revised booklet includes details of cotton and
blend yarn
characteristics for shuttleless weaving. In addition 
to waste level, utility
requirement and such other details in preparatory 
sections. This reference
booklet as in its previous editions provides 
practical guidelines on
performance standards and it is hoped will be 
useful to our colleagues in the
industry.
The contents of this publication are given
