The heald frame for air-jet looms moves at high speed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We expect to achieve high productivity and environmental performance that are cost-equivalent, 20% faster, and 10% energy-saving compared to existing aluminum products.

The product : materials and processes

We utilized CF scrap from FCEV fuel cell tanks as the raw material for this product. We produce rCF yarn using a pultrusion molding process with epoxy resin which is optimized to our original 3D weaving process using rCF spun yarn. We are the world''s first manufacturer (based on our research) that successfully utilizes rCF in pultrusion molding with epoxy resin.
