Digital Weaving Norway
Digital Weaving Norway is a department within Tronrud Engineering since 1995: The special task is to market the Digital Jacquard Loom Thread Controller 2 (TC2) around the world. We are global market leaders, and intend to continue this! TC2 is a Digital Jacquard loom, designed for Sampling and Prototyping purposes.
It was in the early 90s that Vibeke Vestby, then a weaving professor from Oslo (Norway), began toying with the idea of developing a Jacquard weaving loom based on computer technology. The Norwegian economy was booming and the government was encouraging research projects, particularly concerning traditional crafts with new technology. Vibeke sent in a proposal to develop a digital weaving loom, and after getting a go ahead, she partnered with Tronrud Engineering and began to develop the loom.
It took four prototypes and five years of intensive research before the Thread Controller 1 (TC1) was born. Although the TC1 was in itself an ‘ahead of its times’ loom, DWN strived to build an upgrade. Based on its own research and valuable feedback from users, DWN finally rolled out the TC2 in 2012. The TC2 was more than an upgrade, it was a brand new machine that overcame all the challenges of TC1 and other contemporary looms.
