Picanol produces its 100,000th airjet machine

Picanol is proud to announce the production of its 100,000th airjet machine. This OMNIplus Summum forms part of a larger order recently made by Naveena Export LTD Karachi, Pakistan. In fact, the Naveena Group currently has more than 300 Picanol machines in operation and continues to rapidly expand. The group’s activities extend across denim, spinning, property development, steel, and power.

Airjet weaving at Picanol started in 1980 following the release of the revolutionary PAT (Picanol Airtronic) weaving machine. The PAT was first presented at the ATME exhibition in Greenville (US) in the same year. This was then followed by the PAT-A, the Delta, the Delta-X, the Omni, the OMNIplus, the OMNIplus 800, and finally the OMNIplus Summum. Many customers around the world have been growing with us through all of these different generations of airjet machines.

However, perhaps the time has come to develop something new. Watch this space!
