Richard was a inventor and a leading entreprenuer in the industrial revolution. He invented a large spinning machine called a water frame.

The water frame is the name given to a water-powered spinning frame developed by Richard Arkwright, who patented the technology in 1769. The design was partly based on a spinning machine built for Thomas Highs by clock maker John Kay, who was hired by Arkwright

richard arkwright patened the spinning frame or water frame so it could produce stronger threads for yarns. the first models were powered by waterwheels so the invention came to be known as the water frame

Arkwright's fortunes continued to rise and he constructed a horse-driven spinning mill at Preston - the first of many. He developed mills in which the whole process of yarn manufacture was carried on by one machine and this was further complemented by a system in which labour was divided, greatly improving efficiency and increasing profits.
