How is weft inserted?

On Metag machines, the weft yarn is inserted by means of an arcuate needle insertor.
On wider machine models TRX 600-E and TRX 60 the weft is inserted by a needle-rod or rigid-rapier made in carbon fiber (Patented cam driven rigid rapier weft insertion)

What does it mean "double-weft insertion”?

Double weft insertion” means that during the weaving cycle, the incoming weft is (a) inserted into the shed opening, then (b) locked by means bobbin or latch-needle device, then (c) the weft returns outside the shed before the front reed is beating. (complete cycle: a+b+c)
Such way, the reed is pressing (beating) two weft yarns sided.
This is the the meaning of “double-weft insertion” (one weft in+binding+one weft out+beating of reed)
Any latest generation weaving machines for narrow fabric is typically a “double-weft insertion”
Metag is the only one manufacturer in the world which propose two different selvedge bindings.
A single-weft-insertion is achieved uniquely with old-style “shuttle-loom”

What is the maximum allowed width of fabric?

On Metag machines, the maximum allowed width of fabric (i.e. front reed width) is 620 mm = 62 cm on the wider loom model TRX 600 or TRX 600-E.
On other models the width of fabrics is narrower.
As a general indication, Metag machines can NOT weave fabrics wider than 600 mms.

Very difficult to answer with a figure! Thickness is directly related to the textile construction of fabric (number of ply, pick-density, weft count, type of material, quality of yarns, preparation of weaving-machinery etc).
Generally we experienced the production of solid-woven fabrics up to 15-20 mms. thick
Always suggested you, to send us sample/s of your fabric for our internal evaluation.
