Airjet and rapier weaving machines producer – Picanol is celebrating more than 60 years in Korea, by organizing an Open House in Daegu - Korea from 6-8 October, 2014.

Picanol will demonstrate its latest rapier technology and offerings for technical textiles, with a specific focus on its OptiMax showpiece.

The Open House will be organized at the new premises of Picanol customer Dong-A T.O.L. Co. Ltd, which produces high-quality outerwear and furnishing fabrics.

Picanol will take this opportunity to demonstrate to Korean weavers the versatility and modularity of its OptiMax machines for the widest range of high-quality fabrics.

This covers everything from mainstream to niche applications. Picanol will be presenting two versions of its OptiMax rapier weaving machine with the OptiMax 540 cm being showcased for the first time in Korea.

Picanol said the rapier machine is equipped with positive guided grippers and will be weaving a mix of monofil, multifilament and PP-tape to demonstrate its extreme versatility in weft and speed capacity.

The other machine - the OptiMax (190 cm) - comes equipped with negative free-flight grippers and the Open House will see weaving of a shirting fabric.

“Picanol weaving machines are designed to ensure the lowest possible energy consumption, even when running at high speeds,” Picanol added.

The rapier machines on display are also a clear proof that with this technology, customers are ready to face the challenges of high-power prices in the Korean context.

“With our Open House in Korea, we would like to once again emphasize our commitment and involvement to the Korean textile sector,” said Johan Verstraete, Vice-President Marketing, Sales & Services.

“More than ever before, Picanol is determined to provide outstanding customer service, the exceptional levels of quality that we are renowned for, high value and rapid delivery, to ensure that we meet the needs of our valued Korean customers.”

Picanol weaving machines are a synthesis of technological know-how and experience that has been built up over nearly 80 years and has seen production of more than 300,000 machines.

“As of today, Picanol is proud to confirm that is has more than 130,000 weaving machines running in some 2,600 weaving mills worldwide”, the weaving machinery manufacturer informed.

Picanol was the first to introduce many revolutionary concepts in the weaving industry and it currently holds more than 800 patents worldwide. (AR)
