Description

This automatic loom was the first in the world to incorporate the ability to change the shuttle while the machine was still working and was made by Toyoda Automatic Loom Works Ltd of Japan. This was an extremely successful and cost-effective innovation and, by 1929, Platt Brothers of Oldham were marketing the loom in the UK. The income from the licensing fees that followed its worldwide adoption enabled Toyoda to launch the Toyoda Motor Company.
