Quick Style Change

The quickest way to get new styles up and running

With the Picanol Quick Style Change (QSC), preparation of a new style is done outside the weave room. Furthermore, various design aspects facilitate quick setting with maximum digitization, greatly contributing to the uptime of the installation.

• Significant savings in machine downtime during warp change
• Reduction in technical staff required in the weaving department
• Increased flexibility in weaving different styles
• Warp changes prepared outside of the weaving room
• Easy access for cleaning

With Picanol's QSC (Quick Style Change) system, a style change can be carried out in less than 40 minutes by just one person. The key to the operation is the split-frame design of the weaving machine itself.

The style change is achieved by swapping the whole back part of the split frame, with the warp beam, the backrest and the supports, the warp stop motion, the harnesses, the reed and the leno spools.
All article-related settings on the warp side can be performed outside the weaving shed, before the style change.

The machine settings can also be transferred digitally! With the PC Suite, package settings can be stored on a central computer and transferred using an USB stick. When LoomGate is installed settings can even be transferred to the machine over the weaving room network.
