Abstract:

An electromechanical warp control mechanism (WCM) with a positioning mechanism, whose drive system is used in the production of handmade carpets, was designed and implemented in this study. It performs the function of controlling and preparing a pair of warp yarns for a knotting mechanism. The knotting mechanism is a basic mechanism forming the knots used in handmade carpets. The positioning mechanism is also used to control the motion of the WCM forwards and backwards in the width direction of the loom. The movement of the weaver hand is taken as a realistic model for controlling the warp yarns since the knots are produced independently from each other. A model of the WCM was designed and manufactured. Its dimensions were determined using a graphical method. Finally, its construction and control details are given and discussed herein.
