Picanol, an international group specialised in the development of weaving machines, engineered casting solutions and custom-made controllers, is set to show two rapier and two airjet weaving machines at ITM 2018, the 35th international textile machinery exhibition, which will be held from April 14 to 17, 2018, in Istanbul, Turkey, in hall 2, booth 216.

The company will show the OptiMax-i rapier weaving machine at the expo. With industrial speeds of up to 750 rpm, the OptiMax-i is the world’s fastest rapier weaving machine in industrial production.

Highlights of the new rapier include increased performance, more rigid construction, new applications, smart energy efficiency, improved ergonomics, and user-friendliness. The OptiMax-i is available in reed widths ranging from 190 to 540 centimetres. Furthermore, with its Guided Gripper system (GC) and Free Flight system (FF), it is also the most versatile one. The Guided Positive Gripper (GPG) system has been developed for dedicated technical fabrics.

Picanol will also present its TerryMax-i rapier weaving machine, which has been developed for terry towel production. The direct electronic drive of the cloth fell mechanism guarantees a perfect pile formation and enables weavers not only to program the pile height loop by loop, but also to programme the pre-beat-up distance of every single filling yarn, which in turn permits endless design possibilities. Special features include OptiSpeed, pile height monitoring and needle roller control. Besides the TerryMax-i, Picanol also has an airjet for terry production; the TERRYplus Summum weaving machine.

The OMNIplus Summum, Picanol’s high performing airjet weaving machine, will also be displayed. By introducing state-of-the-art technology in hardware and software, the OMNIplus Summum offers the next level to meet new market demands in terms of quality, performance, and energy consumption. Built on the reliable BlueBox electronic platform, the OMNIplus Summum is packed with new features that enhance weaving performance and facilitate future improvements.

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. This improves the user-friendliness and flexibility of the machine and significantly reduces energy consumption. (GK)
