Picanol has nearly 40 years of experience in airjet weaving. The brand new OmniPlus-i represents a new benchmark in airjet weaving. The OmniPlus-i features a redesigned reed motion, optimized relay nozzle set up and can be combined with SmartShed, the full electronic controlled shedding motion.
Picanol conceives its machines around the principle of Smart Performance: an intelligent machine design combined with self-learning software, allowing the best possible practical speed and real performance under any given circumstances. When it comes to waste prevention and energy consumption reduction, Picanol has been taking up its responsibility for years. Its machines are conceived with a built-in capacity for sustainability. Since the first introduction of electronics on weaving machines in the ’70s, Picanol has been at the forefront of digitization. With every new machine, it continues to be a trendsetter in this field and to further deploy Industry 4.0 in the weaving industry. The self-setting machine is just around the corner. A user-centric design is integrated in the concept of its machines, making all operations and interventions intuitive, easy and self-explanatory.
At Itma, Picanol will present five new airjet weaving machines and five rapier weaving machines with many new developments. A rapier machine in jacquard execution will also be on display.
