Picanol to display high-tech weaving machines at INDIA ITME

Picanol will display four high-tech weaving machines on its booth at INDIA ITME 2008, which takes place from 15 to 22 November 2008 in the Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC) in Bangalore, India.

In addition to these four looms, one Picanol Jacquard airjet weaving machine will be on display on the Stäubli booth, and another Picanol weaving machine will be on display at the Van De Wiele booth.

In the month of May, Picanol launched a campaign challenging weavers all over the world to see for themselves how much they could be saving on energy costs. At INDIA ITME 2008 each weaver who has taken part in the campaign can collect a report with personalized results and energy saving tips.

The India International Textile Machinery Exhibition 2008 (INDIA ITME 2008) is to be held in the brand new premises of the BIEC at Bangalore.

The main purpose of the organizers is to update India's textile and allied industries on the technological innovations and progress taking place in the manufacture of machines and accessories.

ITME 2008 is the largest exhibition of its kind in India and is expected to attract over 1,25,000 textile visitors. It is obvious that Picanol will take the opportunity to present all its latest high-tech weaving machines to the Indian market at ITME.

Energy efficiency is one of the highest priorities for weavers when buying new weaving machines. In the month of May Picanol launched a large-scale campaign to challenge weavers worldwide to see for themselves how much they could be saving on energy costs.

Recent independent market research has concluded that the majority of weavers rank energy consumption among the top five criteria when buying a new weaving machine. Around 74% of those surveyed found electricity costs related to machine operation and air compression to be the most important external cost factors when evaluating the efficiency of their installed machines. 76% regard energy costs as the single major challenge with respect to cost control over the next 5 years.

Picanol's customers understand all too well that energy efficiency really affects the bottom line of their business, and it is one of their main concerns when looking for new machines. Equally, it is of great concern to Picanol when designing them.

All Picanol weaving machines have various high-tech features that reduce energy consumption in a unique way:
- the highly energy-efficient Sumo main motor, which drives the weaving machine directly, without belt of clutch and brake
- less heat dissipation, which reduces the cost for air conditioning in the weaving mill
- removing heat with water cooling system (patented)

Specifically in Picanol airjet weaving machines:
- fixed and movable main nozzles for very high performance and minimal air consumption
