The warp beam of a textile machinery is a metal or plastic frame that guides the warp thread through the weft thread in order to create a weave. The warp beam is typically mounted on a movable arm, which can be rotated around an axis perpendicular to the direction of the fabric’s weave. Injuries sustained by workers while operating textile machinery can involve their hands, arms, or legs.
Warping machines have been in use for centuries and are still popular today. The machines can be used to produce textiles, but they can also be used in other industries. Warp machines can cause serious injuries if they are not properly maintained.
There are three main types of injuries that can occur while working with these machines: contact, tension, and shear. Contact injuries occur when the operator’s body comes into contact with the moving parts of the machine. Tension injuries happen when the force applied to the fabric is too much for it to withstand, and shear injuries happen when the fabric is cut by the machine.
If you have been injured by a warping machine, contact an attorney as soon as possible. Warping machines can cause serious injuries, and the legal process can be complicated. A lawyer can help you understand your legal rights and options.
