The SRX82 produces woven area rugs with pile heights of up to 2 inches and widths of up to 4.2 meters, using up to eight color frames, at speeds of up to 130 picks per minute.The SLX83, equipped with three rapiers, produces a patented sisal-look weave structure by providing a filling selector on the middle rapier to allow different colors.

The companies also plan further cooperation and development of computer-aided design and manufacturing software.
