During the China International Textile Machinery Exhibition (CITME) 2002, Germany-based Schönherr
Textilmaschinenbau GmbH hosted a symposium for Chinese carpet weavers. The symposium, entitled
“Diverse Carpet Production Possibilities with the Alpha 300,” gave carpet weavers a chance to view
the Alpha 300 double carpet-weaving machine in operation at Zheng Zhou Carpets, Beijing.
Schönherr’s Alpha 300 double carpet-weaving machine
Schönherr claims the machine offers many possibilities because of its variable weft control,
electronic dobby and jacquard machine control.
