GTMax-i 3.0S Connect rapier weaving machine

The GTMax-i 3.0S Connect is a continuation of the success of the GTMax-i 3.0 machine platform. It uses the proven rapier weaving technology, with full electronic monitoring and control, the redesigned SUMO main motor, and microprocessor-controlled filling insertion. This weaving machine has been designed to meet the objective of maximizing return on investment, with its optimized gripper movement and the future-oriented BlueBox electronic platform with CAN communication.

Our market is nowadays driven by an increasing concern for environmental topics, higher costs, and the lower availability of resources and skills, as well as the digital revolution. That is why the GTMax-i 3.0S Connect has been built around our four leading design principles.

Smart Performance
Picanol machines have always been built for maximum performance, and they always will be. Smart performance not only focuses on speed but also on top quality and versatility. With the GTMax-i 3.0S Connect, smart performance is guaranteed by the robust machine structure combined with the proven shed geometry and the most suitable rapier system for any application.

Sustainability Inside
Minimizing the energy consumption cannot be an optional extra - it has to be embedded in the machine design. To this end, the Sumo drive concept has become even more energy-efficient. In other words, sustainability is inside.

Driven by Data
Picanol has pioneered the digitization of weaving machines for many decades now. The BlueBox is our reliable electronic platform, ready for Industry 4.0. Data gathering and data access afford new opportunities to make your production even more efficient. The data is ready to be used for further optimization of the machine performance or to be exchanged with data available in the cloud. Therefore, weaving with Picanol becomes truly driven by data. 

Intuitive Control
Picanol machines are always designed to be as user-friendly as possible. Thanks to its intuitive user interface and the Smart signal lights, intuitive control has been incorporated to its maximum extent in the machine design of the GTMax-i 3.0S Connect.
