BEATING MOTION ( A PRIMARY LOOM MOTION) :
The beating motion is a primary loom motion. It is also an essential loom motion. It comes after completion of picking motion. The main objective of beating motion is to push the inserted pick till it reaches to the fell of the cloth position. The beating motion in the loom is performed by a reed.
