Digital insertion

You keep control of every step of the insertion


The insertion parameters are digitally controlled and managed on the BlueTouch display.

Wherever possible, the insertion parameters are digitally controlled.
The Tension Display (TED) records the position of the drum brake to visualize it on a local display, enabling transferable and reproducible settings.
The SmartEye filling detector is adjustable for each channel. This detector allows an individual sensitivity setting for each eyelet. It can check whether the correct channel has been inserted, and it also offers the possibility of increasing the sensitivity of the eyelets for very fine filling. With the optional AutoSens, the filling detector automatically optimizes its settings.
The QuickStep filling presenter operates with independent modules, each consisting of an electronically controlled stepper motor with a presenter needle.
The On-loom Picascope is mounted on the QuickStep. During running of the machine, it works as a strobolum to check the gripper taking the weft during insertion. When the machine is stopped, it works as a light, adding extra light in the insertion area.
Thanks to the independent drive of the SmartCut filling cutter, the cutting moment can be controlled individually, ensuring faultless insertion with minimum waste.
The EcoFill eliminates the catch-cord system on the left-hand side.
The Electronic Right Gripper Opener (ERGO) offers an electronic setting of the gripper opening instead of the traditional mechanical setting and allows individual setting of the gripper opening timing for each weft channel.
