Picanol Reports Orders For OptiMax, Omniplus Summum

Picanol Group, Belgium, reports it has received a number of contracts to supply its OptiMax flexible rapier weaving machine with positive grippers and its Omniplus Summum air-jet weaving machine.

The company signed several contracts during ITMA 2011 in Barcelona, Spain, for 540-centimeter-wide OptiMax machines to be used to produce coating fabrics, conveyor belts and carpet backing, and reported further subsequent success for the machine in both wide and narrower widths. Picanol reports that the positive gripper OptiMax can accommodate stiff and bulky technical yarns at maximum speeds without problems.

The Omniplus Summum features state-of-the-art electronics and a new insertion system that offers complete electronic pressure regulation and a triple air tank to supply air to the relay nozzles.
