Picanol to present new machinery at Techtextil India
Picanol is set to show latest textile machinery at Techtextil India in weaving hall B25. The leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens will be held from November 20-22, 2019, at Mumbai, India. Picanol specialises in the development, production, and sales of weaving machines and technology for the textile industry.
Driven by extensive investments in R&D, Picanol has grown into an industry leader for high-tech weaving machines in the sector of technical textiles. Many recent developments clearly highlight this point. One is the growing success of the super-wide rapier machines, which can be equipped with positive guided grippers in widths up to 540 cm. Indeed, they are being considered as a valid alternative to projectile machines in such applications as agrotextiles, packaging, and carpet backings, according to a media statement by the company.
Another innovation is the introduction of wasteless LHS in four colours (Ecofill 4) for selected fabrics, such as para-aramides, where huge cost savings in regard to waste can be obtained. Furthermore, there is the new SmartShed technology which was introduced on the most recent OmniPlus-i airjet machine, weaving car seat fabric with 14 harness frames at very high speeds. These introductions complete Picanol’s offerings for coated fabrics, conveyor belting, glass fibre, tyre cords and airbags, among other things.
Picanol supplies weaving machines to weaving mills worldwide, and also offers its customers such products and services as weaving accessories, training, upgrade kits, and spare parts. For more than 80 years, Picanol has played a pioneering role in the textile machinery industry, and is one of the current world leaders in weaving machine production.
