When designing the new Ultimax rapier machine, we focused on the following three aspects:
This means that Ultimax is - more than ever - a machine developed by design with our four design principles in mind: Sustainability Inside, Driven by Data, Smart Performance, and Intuitive Control. Thanks to the high level of digitization and enabled by our digital platform PicConnect, the monitoring of both individual machines, as well as the entire weaving mill, will become much easier than before and will give you unprecedented control.
To realize this groundbreaking weaving machine, both our experienced engineers and a new generation of young engineers came together to mix fresh ideas with years of experience. And armed with the latest design techniques, they critically examined and questioned each and every element of the machine.
The result is a focused and razor-sharp machine, that is ready to go with audacious speed, precisely reacting to your slightest touch or setting, and faultlessly bringing you top-quality output - both now and in the future.
Even our classic exterior design has been radically disrupted to make it clear from the outside how cutting edge the Ultimax is on the inside.
We can truly state that Ultimax is a revolutionary rapier platform, based on which we and our customers will be able to cope with the many challenges ahead when it comes to sustainability, digitization, and obviously also realizing maximum performance with minimum use of resources.
