Picanol sets up state-of-art training center at Leper

Advanced weaving machines producer and Belgium-based Picanol inaugurated its new training center, new test and shipping area for weaving machines, which also includes installing new production machines in Leper - Belgium.

This centre set up at cost of Euro 17.5 million was approved in 2013, following its decision to improve competitiveness through further productivity and quality improvements.

“Quality of fabric and performance of machines are determined not only by raw materials and the machine itself, but also to a large extent by the way the materials and the machine are handled, Picanol explained.

“Picanol naturally attaches the highest importance to good training, and so last year it was decided to invest in a state-of-the-art training center”, it added.

With three fully equipped training rooms, each with two weaving machines, cut models, mini-workshop, etc, the new training center allows Picanol to train technicians of its customers on its weaving machines under optimal conditions.

The new training center measures about 600 m² and also houses a guest center and several meeting rooms.

The new test area replaces the old one and is equipped with 24 test stations. All weaving machines leaving the assembly lines are mechanically and electronically tested in the new test area before they go to the customers, enabling Picanol to offer an even higher quality and reliability.

Following testing and final check, the machines are put on a moving carpet, where accessories are added and packaging of the machines is done. After the packaging line, the machines are placed in the buffer zone awaiting shipment.

Since the summer of 2014, the shipping area has been housed in a new space with two loading docks and one loading space.

The weaving machines producer said, “The inauguration of the new training center and test zone marks a new milestone for Picanol in Leper.”

Founded in 1936, Picanol develops, manufactures and sells high-tech weaving machines based on airjet and rapier technology. (AR)
