Section Beam

Also called warper beams. These beams, which are produced at warping, make up a section or portion of the yarns needed on a loom beam. Example: If a loom beam had 5,600 ends, then the following would be needed: 10 section beams with 560 ends, 11 section beams with 466 ends, and one with 474 ends, or some other combination of section beams that would produce the total number of required ends on the loom beam.
