Beaming

BEAMING
The process of putting warp yam on a beam. One of the most important operations in weaving, and yet one of the simplest. After spinning the yam, the spinner puts it on a beam when required for warps, and this is his last operation. Beams must be well made and tight. Very faulty cloth results if the yam does not come off the beam regularly.
