Air Jet Loom
ZAX9100 AIR JET LOOM
The spectacular debut will lead the new era of weaving.
ZAX9100 Air Jet Loom
With the newly designed air jet loom, anyone can easily weave high-quality fabric using the Weave Navigation System. In pursuit of the ultimate user-friendly loom, Tsudakoma developed the new ZAX9100 air jet loom.
Voile curtain weaving
The advantages of the ZAX9100 are shown below:
- Loom rpm: Increased 20%
- Air consumption: Reduced 10%
- Floor vibration: Reduced 35%
- Accessibility: Increased 20%
(Compared with the conventional model)
All parts of the ZAX9100 were re-thought: the frame structure, the beating, the weft insertion, the let-off, and the take-up motion. It is the premium air jet loom provided with the latest Weave Navigation System. It is expected to meet various challenges like cost competition, QR (quick response), value-added fabric weaving, and the development of a new product line that will increase in importance in the future.
Careful attention has been paid to design the ZAX9100.
- Soft weft insertion with low pressure.
- Offset rocking shaft with less moment of inertia
- Hollow reed holder
With all these new designs the ZAX9100 thoroughly pursues high-speed ability.

Also, air consumption was reduced (by about 10%) by employing the twin nozzle valve and by shortening the air route.
Shortening the consolidated adjusting points and reducing the required tools improved accessibility and operationality. Thus, Tsudakoma succeeded in reducing style change time 20%.
