AVL Jacquard loom is the ideal choice for designers, educational institutions and artists. Whether weaving samples, production fabric or works of art, AVL Jacquard Jacq3G yields unprecedented design freedom and the latitude to create an unlimited variety of motifs and fabrics. 

Jacq3G enables individual control over each thread, yielding the equivalent of an unlimited number of "harnesses". 

The base jacquard system has 360 hooks with individual thread controls and can be expanded with additional modules, upto 2160 hooks. The total number of hooks/ modules depends on the loom’s width. Looms are available from 30” to 72” width.

Each Jacq3G module consists of 120 independently acting hooks. Hook activation is accomplished using miniature solenoids. When selected, the solenoid manoeuvres a hook wire into position to be captured by a lifting knife. When unselected, the hook wire remains captured by a dropping knife. The lifting and dropping knives work in concert creating a countermarch-type action. And since each hook only moves half the shed height (either up or down), the shed is achieved in half the movement and half the time of rising shed or jack-style systems. Each module also contains the full compliment of heddles, springs, anchors.
