Picanol Launches TerryPlus-i Airjet Weaving Machine

TerryPlus i SmartShed

Belgium-based Picanol NV has introduced the TerryPlus-i airjet weaving machine. Developed with smart performance, sustainability, intuitive control and data in mind, the technology is based on the new OmniPlus-i that debuted at ITMA 2019. Dobby or jacquard shedding motions are possible and the machine feature SmartShed technology for independent and individual shedding motion.

“The latest terry technology makes the new TerryPlus-i the most performant and versatile terry machine on the market,” explained Johan Verstraete, vice president, Weaving Machines. “It doesn’t matter if it is high pile, low pile, high density, low density, complex styles, or simple styles — this machine can handle any challenge. In order to realize this versatility we have developed a completely new pile formation system where the user can program any pile height between zero and 12 millimeters, regardless of whether it is plain terry, wave patterns, or any other pattern and this is done on a pick-by-pick basis.”
