Roll out of the first Connect weaving machines

This month, Picanol realized another milestone with the first weaving machines of the Connect generation rolling off the production line at its plant in Ieper, Belgium. This marks a new step for Picanol and its customers with an even greater focus on data and connectivity.

The OmniPlus-i Connect weaving machine in the picture will be shipped to the Vietnamese branch of our Chinese customer Texhong Textile Group Ltd.

This new Connect generation of weaving machines provide the correct data and are loaded with new functionalities, such as Climate control, Shed angle measurement, and fully integrated Power monitoring. For the OptiMax-i Connect and TerryMax-i Connect machines, a digitalized Gripper stroke setting and Gripper tape monitoring have also been introduced. With this new Connect generation, our customers get all the possibilities to be at the top of their market and they will be prepared for every new opportunity,” comments Kurt Lamkowski, Manager Worldwide Sales.
