Picanol Introduces Enhanced Terry Weaving

Belgium-based Picanol has recently introduced the TERRYplus weaving machine, which brings air-jet
flexibility to terry production. The machines motor-driven system provides increased operational
flexibility special fabric constructions with different pile heights are now possible.The TERRYplus
not only permits greater pile height and heavier fabric weights, but it also offers increased
flexibility of operation with the ability to change the fabric width and pile height. On the
TERRYplus, the drawing-in width can be changed using the same reed by shifting the weft stop motion
and the weft cutter. Moreover, the pile height is freely programmable with the same fabric. The
machine also offers enhanced electronic let-off and electronic take-up.
