Fabricator Enables Warp-Weft Fabric Analysis

Fabricator EnablesWarp/Weft Fabric AnalysisScotland-based ScotWeave Ltd. has developed Fabricator software to analyze a dobby woven fabric sample and generate construction information for that sample. First, a flatbed scanner is used to scan the actual fabric. Next, as Fabricator examines the image, details such as warp and weft colors, thread density and weave structure are identified.[T]he particular characteristics of a piece of suiting or furniture fabric are determined not just by the mix of colors which make up a pattern, but by the manner in which the cloth has been woven on the loom, said Dave Kemp, managing director. Our Fabricator system is a groundbreaking step forward in reducing the time and cost of analyzing fabrics. September 2003
