That is why the OptiMax-i 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 OptiMax-i 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. Sustainability inside is not only about energy but also about resources. EcoFill and ERGO are just a few features on the OptiMax-i Connect that will help you optimize the use of your most valuable materials.

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. With the BlueTouch display, all data is gathered and visualized in overview dashboards. The data is ready to be used for further optimization of the machine performance or to be exchanged – be it with data from other machines or 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 the BlueTouch display with its complete newly designed user interface, the smart signal lights and the implementation of Access control, the highest level of intuitive control has been incorporated in the machine design of the OptiMax-i Connect.
