Picanol, a Belgium based developer of weaving machines and technology, will be displaying its latest airjet weaving machine, OMNIplus Summum and two rapier weaving machines, OptiMax-I and TerryMax-I at the ITM 2016, Istanbul from June 1-4, 2016. The ITM fair will witness Picanol presenting its new technology in hall 2, booth 218.

“With industrial speeds of up to 750 rpm, the new OptiMax-i is now unquestionably the fastest industrial produced rapier weaving machine in the world. Highlights of the new rapier include the increased performance, redesigned and even more rigid construction, new applications, intelligent energy efficiency, improved ergonomics and user-friendliness. The OptiMax-i is available in reed widths ranging from 190 to 540 centimeters. Furthermore, thanks to its optimized rapier drives, it remains the fastest rapier machine on the market with the guided gripper system (GC) and through its free flight system (FF) it is also the most versatile one,” explained Johan Verstraete, VP sales, marketing and services at Picanol.

The guided positive gripper (GPG) system has been developed in the new OptiMax-I for dedicated technical fabrics. Other features includes, the electronic filling tensioner (EFT), the SmartEye filling detector and the SmartCut filling cutter, the company said in a press release.

The new TerryMax-i rapier, has been developed for terry cloth production. The direct electronic drive of the cloth fell mechanism enables weavers to program the pile height loop by loop, and program the pre beat-up distance of every single filling yarn, which in turn enables endless design possibilities. Special features include OptiSpeed, pile height monitoring and needle roller control.

The OMNIplus Summum is Picanol’s latest generation in airjet weaving machines. The OMNIplus Summum is equipped with fully electronic pressure regulators, a separate built-in air tank for each weaving channel and a unique triple air tank configuration for the relay nozzles. (NA)
