Picanol showcases airjet & rapier looms at ITMA-ASIA

Jun '14
Picanol is showcasing four Airjets and three Rapiers at ITMA-ASIA + CITME 2014 being held from June 16-20, 2014. 
 
As one of the world’s leading weaving machine manufacturers, Picanol has always had a very close relationship with the Chinese textile industry. This relationship is not a matter of chance or coincidental developments: on the contrary, it is the result of long-term, strategic planning by the Picanol management.
 
In this firm belief, Picanol sent its first pioneers to explore the possibilities in the Far East, in the early 1950s. Picanol took part in one of the first international exhibitions held in Beijing. This was the period when Picanol sales managers, criss-crossed the Orient to promote its weaving machines at exhibitions and technical seminars.
 
The growing installed base of Picanol machines in China, as well as the increasing demand for a higher level of service & support resulted in the establishment of the Picanol Service Centre, which was set up in Shanghai in 1987. A network of local service engineers was also established to serve the other South-Asian countries. 
 
The next step in the history of Picanol in China was the set-up of PST, Picanol Suzhou Textile Machinery Works, thus starting its career as a Chinese textile machinery manufacturer. This set-up took place in 1994 and we celebrate this year the 20 years existence of Picanol Suzhou Textile Machinery Works.
 
 PST was Picanol’s first major production line outside Belgium and the technology and organization were based entirely on the assembly concept employed at the company’s headquarters in Ieper. Today PST houses a complete production unit with 3 assembly lines for 4 product types (GT-Max, GTMax-i and GTXplus with rapier technology and the OMNIplus-X with airjet insertion technology), a mechatronics division, a sales, service and spare parts organization. The majority of the Chinese management, engineers and technicians have been trained in Belgium. 
 
Machines produced in PST aim at the top layer of the mid segment and are besides in China, also quite successful in the new emerging textile regions outside China. 
 
With more than 150 engineers and strong R&D teams headquartered in Belgium, Picanol invests heavily in R&D activities every year. Picanol's R&D aims not just at development and production of the most advanced weaving machines, but also achieving the most profitable weaving process in the world.
 
Picanol offers nine types of weaving machines: the OptiMax, GT-Max, GTMax-i and GTXplus with rapier technology, the OMNIplus Summum, OMNIplus 800, TERRYplus 800, OMNIplus 800 TC and the OMNIplus-X with airjet insertion technology.
