Shuttle Loom Weaving

A traditional and somewhat slow weaving method but its in high demand for critical high performance narrow fabric applications.
 
Shuttle loom weaving is a traditional weaving method that utilizes a shuttle (usually made of wood or Tufnol) to pass the lateral horizontal yarn of the weft at right angles through the longitudinal yarn of the warp, thus creating a plain weave construction. Shuttle woven tapes have no 'alien' catch thread on one side (selvedge) like they do on needle woven tapes. The end result is a uniformly woven substrate with a consistent thickness throughout the entire structure, a major advantage for critical use applications in aerospace and high performance applications.
