Picanol Showing Revolutionary Product Platforms At Techtextil

Technical textiles are one of the pillars in the long-term product strategy of Picanol, the world’s leading manufacturer of weaving machines.

Picanol will be exhibiting at Techtextil Frankfurt in Hall 12.0, Booth C01 and will show revolutionary product platforms in rapier and airjet weaving technology and the digital platform PicConnect.

The Belgian company will have dedicated solutions for technical fabrics, which offer customers the best of all worlds: reliability, performance, and flexibility in the most sustainable way.

During Techtextil Frankfurt, Picanol will present its solutions for various applications, including filter fabrics, agro-textiles, carpet-backing, coating fabrics, para-aramides, and tire cords.

Picanol’s all-new rapier weaving machine, the Ultimax, focuses on three main benefits.

These include ultimate performance and high-quality output, readiness for the sustainability requirements of tomorrow, and the greatest ease of use thanks to a maximum level of digitalisation.

In addition, the classic Picanol exterior design of the machine has been radically disrupted in order to make it clear from the outside just how revolutionary the Ultimax is on the inside.

The Ultimax excels in the fields of performance and quality, it has been designed with sustainability as the baseline, and the high degree of digitization results in a previously unseen ease of use.

Picanol also added that the predecessor of the Ultimax, the OptiMax-i Connect rapier weaving machine remains available for specific applications for weaving technical textiles, up to 540 cm.

Picanol recently launched a speed increase on its airjet platform, the OmniPlus-i Connect. With the brand-new leno system, the o-Leno, smart performance, user-friendliness, and intuitive control are combined optimally.

Picanol also offers a dedicated version of this airjet machine for tire cord applications, the OmniPlus-i TC Connect.

With PicConnect, Picanol is centralising its digital tools and services in one new fully digital platform.

Those visiting Techtextil Frankfurt will be able to discover all the benefits and latest features of PicConnect to leverage the full extent of the possibilities offered by Picanol weaving machines.
