C. Beat up:- The process in which yarns are sent to the fell of the cloth is called beat up.
Secondary motion is in two types:
- Take up motion
- Let off motion
Tertiary motion is not necessary for fabric production. The tertiary motions are:
- Warp stop motion.
- Weft stop motion.
- Reed stop motion.
