Picanol to exhibit at Itma Asia + CITME

Following the highly successful ITMA Europe in 2019, ITMA ASIA + CITME will be the textile machinery industry’s first major exhibition in two years. Understandably, everyone at Picanol is really looking forward to this event, especially given that the close cooperation between CTMA and Cematex has transformed ITMA ASIA + CITME into the most important biennial meeting point not only for the Asian but also for the global textile industry. 

Two brand new Picanol rapier machines will be premiered!

“Everyone at Picanol is eager to help our customers by providing the best technologies available on the market for airjet and rapier machines, as well as an outstanding local service and support team. The four development principles of Picanol - Smart Performance, Sustainability Inside, Driven by Data, and Intuitive Control - guide us in all our ventures. Inspired by these four principles, our R&D team has been developing some really exciting innovations that will be displayed at ITMA ASIA + CITME. These include two airjet weaving machines, four rapier weaving machines for flat fabrics, as well as one rapier machine for weaving terry towel. Furthermore, there will be an additional rapier machine in jacquard execution at the Bonas booth,” comments Johan Verstraete, Vice President Weaving Machines.

In addition to displaying the many innovations made to its range of both airjet and rapier machines, Picanol will also be premiering two new rapier machines: the brand new GTMax-i 3.0S will be shown in a 4 color dobby execution, weaving a denim style, whereas the new GTMax-S on display will be an 8 color dobby machine in 380 cm reed width weaving a silk fabric.

Picanol will also be demonstrating an OptiMax-i gripper machine in free flight execution of 540 cm width at the exhibition. This represents a significant innovation breakthrough for specific technical segments.
