One lattice is represent two picks. To weave a fabric to above design we have to prepare at least two Lattices such as this
6 5 4 3 2 1 1 2 3 4

Picks

Heald Frame Order which comes up is given below. We have to insert pins to the lattice according to this order When preparing a lattice we have to start from the front side (operators side ) of the lattice. 1 2 2 1 3 3 4 3 5 4 5 4 6 6 6 5

Compare tappet shedding & dobby shedding Tappet Only Up to 10 Heald frames High Speed Low design Capability Dobby up to 32 Heald frames can be used Less Speed High design capability

The different between negative & positive shedding Negative If the raising and lowering is done by two different mechanisms. Positive If both the raising and lowering is done by its self.

When crank wheel moves one circle is complete then one shedding, one picking and one beat up is done.
