ATI Continuous reed

Reach high speeds, even with tucked selvedges

Picanol's air tucker is compatible with both cut and continuous reed executions. Air tuckers can be a value-adding replacement for mechanical tuckers in applications where higher machine speeds can be achieved. 

  • Multi-panel weaving with air-tucked selvedges without cutting the reed 
  • No moving mechanical parts, low maintenance 
  • No speed limitation compared to mechanical tucking-in 
  • No lubrication, no risk of staining the fabric 
  • Available for cut and continuous reed version 
  • Easy conversion from leno to tucker and vice versa 

Switching between tucking-in and leno selvedges is easy, making your looms more flexible and versatile. 

 

The air tucker uses a suction device to hold the filling end during beat-up, a cutter for constant tip length and an air nozzle to insert the tip of the filling end back into the fabric, guaranteeing a short and smooth selvedge for your airjet or rapier weaving machine.
