"Air weaving is the most productive weaving procedure, but at the same time it is the most energy-intensive one. Developments of this technology are placed in the area of tension between lowest possible energy costs and simultaneous highest possible productivity and constant quality. The aim of the project is to prove that the potential of increasing productivity and energy-efficiency in practice-oriented scenarios is technically feasible. Furthermore, possible utilisation routes will be evaluated and prioritised. "
