SmartShed is a direct driven motion of the harness frames that Picanol offers on the OmniPlus-i airjet weaving machine. SmartShed has been designed for weavers who want to combine maximum digitization and flexibility with maximum performance in the weaving process.
The Picanol SmartShed shedding motion offers some unique features such as a load indicator, a smart tool to maximize the machine performance, as well as an integrated stroke measurement.
SmartShed was introduced on the OmniPlus-i airjet weaving machine in 2019. We’re pleased to announce that with effect from July 2020 onwards, SmartShed will also be available for larger widths up to 360 cm for sheeting applications.
