Weft is a basic component used in weaving to turn yard or loom into fabric. The transverse weft is drawn through and inserted over and under the warp. A single thread crossing the warp is called a pick.
According to Wikipedia,
Because the weft does not have to be stretched on a loom the way the warp is it can generally be less strong. It is usually made of spun fibre, originally wool, flax and cotton, today often of synthetic fiber such as nylon or rayon.
The weft is threaded through the warp using a “shuttle“, air jets or “rapier grippers”. Hand looms were the original weaver’s tool, with the shuttle being threaded through alternately raised warps by hand.
Nickzom Calculator calculates a bunch of calculations in Polymer and Textile Engineering and shows the steps (workings), formulas and answers. Today, I would showing you with pictures how The Calculator Encyclopedia can calculate the Weft Weight in Kilograms (Kg).
First, you need to have access to the professional version of Nickzom Calculator (Nickzom Calculator+) via any of these channels:
Select Engineering and Click on Open Section
A list of Engineering Majors of which its calculations can be handled by the calculator encyclopedia is listed out in alphabetical order. Scroll down and click on Polymer & Textile.
The Polymer and Textile Engineering Page has over 200 calculative parameters. Scroll down to Weft Weight (Kg) and click on it.
To get the weft weight in Kg you need to know 4 parameters which are:
- RS in cm
- Cloth Length in m
- Picks per Inch
- Weft Count
Enter the appropriate values for each of the parameters
Finally, all you need to do now is to click on the Calculate button.
Your result including the formula, parameters, steps (workings) and answer is made available to you.
