At its headquarters in Leper, Belgium, from September 8-11, 2015, Picanol gave a live demonstration of the OptiMax-i, its new rapier machine.

“This Open House also saw Picanol providing a sneak preview of its new TerryMax-i rapier weaving machine for terry cloth,” a press release from the weaving technologies producer stated.

According to Picanol, almost 300 visitors from more than 25 different countries attended the Open House.

The new rapier machines will be making their international debuts at ITMA 2015 fair in November 2015, where Picanol will be presenting its new technologies in hall 1, booth D-101.

"It has been a pleasure to be able to demonstrate over the past few days our new rapier technologies to our many European customers,” Johan Verstraete, VP sales, marketing & services at Picanol said.

“Following the strong interest of our customers in our new rapier offerings, we decided to organise a pre-launch event ahead of ITMA Milano,” he added.

“With the new OptiMax-i we have set a new benchmark in the rapier industry, because this is the fastest industrial rapier weaving machine in the world,” he noted.

Due to its innovative design, the OptiMax-i is also the most versatile and user-friendly rapier machine with the lowest energy consumption on the market.

It can be adapted to a wide range of fabrics, which means that it provides weavers with a great deal of flexibility in reacting to changes in market requirements,” Verstraete explained.

Another highlight of the Open House at Picanol was the sneak preview of the TerryMax-i, a new machine for weaving terry fabrics, which for the first time is available in a rapier format.

Picanol added that currently it has more than 175,000 weaving machines running in some 2,600 weaving mills world-wide. (AR)
