Carpets are woven by using punch cards that control the input of threads to the loom. Nowadays it's possible to do this by using a computer. Photo electric cells read a pattern, which is then passed on to a computer. This then takes care of the input of threads. After a carpet is ready, it is taken off the machine and is checked. This British-Dutch invention is used for the first time in Hilversum.
