Enter the loom speed (picks/min) and the loom width (yds) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Insert Rate.

## Insert Rate Formula

INSR = LS * LW

Variables:

- INSR is the Insert Rate (yards/min)
- LS is the loom speed (picks/min)
- LW is the loom width (yds)

To calculate Insert Rate, multiply the loom speed by the loom width.

## How to Calculate Insert Rate?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Insert Rate.

- First, determine the loom speed (picks/min).
- Next, determine the loom width (yds).
- Next, gather the formula from above = INSR = LS * LW.
- Finally, calculate the Insert Rate.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

loom speed (picks/min) = 45

loom width (yds) = 30
