ArahWeave allows saving of jacquard single files for Stäubli, Bonas and Grosse, on more than 10 floppies
Numerous jacquard manufacturers support multi-floppy jacquard formats (Stäubli JC3, JC4, JC5, Bonas, Grosse) and ArahWeave supported splitting and saving of a single card file on multiple floppies. However, a single card file could only be split to 10 floppies.
A customer of ours in India creates very large saree designs, writes them to a USB key formated for floppy emulator in Grosse.wea format, and needs 23 floppies because the design has 48820 wefts. Grosse, a German Jacquard producer that the Chinese acquired about 2010, closed its doors in 2017. Grosse jacquards are hence fairly rare on the market. In order to facilitate the saving of a single design on more than 10 floppies, we made improvements to the ArahWeave program.
We put in extra effort to make this unusual application practicable, and as a result, the customer won’t have to spend 100.000 EUR on a new jacquard loom to weave their large and complex sarees in the future.
