Picanol has introduced its latest generation of Airjet and rapier weaving machines, which have been called the “Connect” generation.
These new generation weaving machines focus on connectivity and an increased level of data availability.
With this new generation, Picanol is launching several new functionalities such as a digitalized Gripper stroke setting, Gripper tape monitoring, Climate control, Shed angle measurement, and fully integrated Power monitoring.
Following the successful launch of our digital platform PicConnect earlier this month, we have now released a new generation of weaving machines, which are known as the Connect generation.
Our Connect generation weaving machines can provide the correct data and are loaded with new and never-before-seen functionalities.
This is clear proof that for Picanol “Driven by Data” is not just a slogan but a commitment.
Not only have these innovations allowed us to make big improvements when it comes to our four design principles – Smart Performance, Sustainability Inside, Intuitive Control, and of course, Driven by Data – but when combined with our new digital platform they will allow you to amplify your own intuition.” comments Johan Verstraete, Vice President Weaving Machines.
From now on, the range of Picanol weaving machines will have the “Connect” suffix.
For the airjet weaving machines, this means: OmniPlus-i Connect and TerryPlus-i Connect, while for the rapier weaving machines, this means: OptiMax-i Connect and TerryMax-i Connect.
These new machines are built around Picanol’s four main design principles.
