The Implementation of the Air Jet Loom High-Precision Weft Insertion Control System Based on FPGA


Article Preview

With the respect of the problem of that the control precision of air jet loom weft insertion control system can not satisfy the requirement of the high-speed loom, this article presented a high-precision weft insertion control system taking FPGA as the control core, and it designed hardware circuit and software framework. This control system generates weft insertion control signal which is figured out through the parallel execution of the FPGA program. The practice shows that the system owns the features of high control precision, good consistency and so on, and it has a significant importance to the high-speed development of air jet loom.
