BONAS will present its latest innovations at ITMA ASIA 2018. The Si range, known as trailblazer in jacquard weaving thanks to its most compact design, lightweight, low energy consumption and high efficiency is now available from 2.688 up to 31.104 hooks, the largest single jacquard machine available on the market.
On the VANDEWIELE booth you can discover the Si27 on an Itema R9500-340 cm with 27.200 installed hooks, weaving wall covering & bed covers. To date, numerous Bonas Si’s with over 25.000 hooks are installed in the market, weaving a wide range of applications.
The performance and stability of the Si is demonstrated while weaving OPW airbags at high speed, with 11520 hooks, on a Dornier airjet. The double-sided drive mechanism proves its usefulness. The Bonas Si range is used for all applications on all possible jacquard airjet, rapier and velvet looms.
Bonas’ other successful Jacquard range, the Ji, is of course displayed as well. This model is available from 1.920 up to 5.760 hooks. The Ji is manufactured in a state-of-the-art factory in Belgium as well as in a brand new plant in Nanjing. Nanjing is producing exclusively for the Chinese market. Hundreds of Ji’s are installed in several countries for numerous weaving applications.
At ITMA Asia, a Ji5 equipped with 5000 hooks will weave Furnishing Fabrics on a Picanol GT Max-340 cm. A Ji2 with 2688 hooks will produce Terry Towels on a Rifa Air Jet. Another 6 Ji’s will be on display at the exhibition weaving from Label over Terry to Furnishing fabrics.
Bonas’ Ji range, already producing in many countries worldwide, uses best jacquard technology. The synergy of the micro-selection technology and the state-of-the-art, maintenance-free drive mechanism with integrated dwell, makes the Ji the reference in jacquard double width weaving. Superior technology at the best price. Linux-based BONAS Ci controller and software offer solutions for every weaving application. Use of icons on a 10.4-inch touch screen is user friendly, self-learning and makes operation very easy and self-evident. The Ci controller is Industry 4.0 compliant and hence ready for the future.
