Picanol Introduces Cordless Air-jet Weaving Feature

Picanol NV, Belgium, has launched a feature for air-jet weaving machines that enables weaving without the filling catch cord. The fully automatic Cordless feature has a mechanical clamp at the right-hand side of the machine that moves along with the reed. Picanol reports tests conducted on a range of fabrics have indicated the Cordless design improves filling tension evenness, reduces air consumption, improves selvage quality, enables increased speeds on delicate yarn and significantly reduces filling waste when weaving with elastic yarns.

The Cordless feature is linked to a central microprocessor that processes data from sensors and detectors on the weaving machine, enabling real-time calculations and adaptations to the system's valve timings. Picanol also reports the Cordless feature is compatible with all types of reeds.
