Abstract: Typical weaving system has been introduced a number of difficulties of fabric manufacturing. Some faults such as hard sizing, light sizing, excessive warp strain, warp crossing etc. is occurred by typical sizing which could not be identified before weaving. If the sizing process is carried out on loom, sizing parameters would be adjustable according to demand. A miniature sizing unit was integrated with an ordinary power loom. The miniature sizing box was made of wood which consist of electric heater. A hot air dryer was used to dry the warp yarn after sizing. A conventional loom was used to weave the fabric of specification with PPM (Picks Per Minute) near to 160. Satisfactory weaving efficiency (about 90%) was achieved for weaving with proposed integrated sizing-weaving loom. Here warp yarn entered in weaving zone just after sizing, thus ends breakage rate would be reduced. This study also proposed a new weaving process which abolish sizing machine from typical weaving flow chart.
