The Loom
for Creators
The TC2 is built on the belief that the loom should be an extension to the creativity of the artist or the designer. We have significantly simplified the design process, so that you can go from an idea to a fabric in minutes!
Handcrafted in Norway The modular solution with interchangeable parts is developed to make the TC2 user-friendly and easy to maintain. Developed by Tronrud Engineering The development of the Thread Controller was started in 1990 by Tronrud Engineering, which specializes in the development, design and construction of specialized machinery. Digital Weaving Norway is a business unit of TE and was established in 1995.

we are

global market leaders in the segment of digital jacquard looms

We launched the Thread Controller in 1995 and since then, we’ve had a long list of satisfied customers, many of them using the loom for R&D/product development, sampling and rapid prototyping, on-demand production, mass customisation or simply just to weave anything and everything that fancies their imagination. More recently, we have seen increased interest in the TC2 by textile manufacturers, researchers as well as companies working with newly engineered materials like technical and smart textiles.

TC2 - Dynamic Design Tool

The Thread Controller is modular, and therefore easy to configure and reconfigure. New and optimized production methods as well as detailed control and testing have made the Thread Controller a flexible and dynamic design tool, ideal for rapid prototyping.

How it Began

The serial production of the Thread Controller began in 1995 when Tronrud Engineering, the company that had built the first prototype of the Digital Jacquard Loom in 1990/91 and Vibeke Vestby, the weaver/educator who had conceptualised the loom joined hands.
