At ITMA 2015, Picanol will offer live demonstrations on a wide variety of 10 airjet and rapier weaving machines in hall 1 booth D 101.

“At the stall, these machines will be weaving a wide array of fabrics including shirting, denim, terry and automotive right through to technical fabrics,” a Picanol press release informed.

Picanol will be presenting its machines in a brand new booth design, which will have a special zone which will be occupied by an Omniplus Summum airjet weaving machine with new features.

“In addition, a Picanol OptiMax-i with jacquard will be on display at the Bonas booth and an Omniplus Summum will be demonstrated at the Stäubli booth,” the company stated.

According to Picanol, with industrial speeds of up to 750 rpm, the new OptiMax-i is now unquestionably the fastest rapier weaving machine in the world.

Features of the new rapier include; increased performance, rigid construction, new applications, intelligent energy efficiency, improved ergonomics and user-friendliness and is available in reed widths from 190 to 540 cms.

“Thanks to its optimised rapier drives, it remains the fastest rapier machine with the Guided Gripper system (GC) and the most versatile one with the Free Flight system (FF),” Picanol added.

Due to the revolutionary Free Flight Positive Gripper system (FPG), weavers are now able to combine and freely mix the most challenging filling yarns.

Other features developed to respond to an ever increasing demand for versatility include the Electronic Filling Tensioner (EFT), the SmartEye filling detector and the SmartCut filling cutter.

Picanol is also presenting machines for weaving terry cloth; its new TerryMax-i rapier and the new Terryplus Summum airjet weaving machines, both of which have been developed for terry fabrics.

“The direct electronic drive of the fabric fell mechanism guarantees a perfect pile formation and enables weavers to program the pile height loop by loop,” it observed.

“Picanol offers the best mix of machines and services that enable weavers to create every type of fabric imaginable,” Johan Verstraete, VP sales, marketing & services at Picanol said.

“In line with our marketing campaign 'Let's grow together', everyone at Picanol endeavours to ensure that our machines are more energy-efficient, more versatile, user-friendly and easy to set,” he too added.

“This means that we can continue to demonstrate that we are the technology leader in both airjet and rapier weaving machines,” Verstraete explained.

Picanol also said that it is proud to confirm that it currently has more than 175,000 weaving machines running in some 2,600 weaving mills throughout the world. (AR)
