The company will be joining the Belgian Lounge, located in Hall 3. The company considers the exhibition a major stepstone for the ITMA trade fair in Barcelona this June, where several Picanol machines will be on show, producing challenging technical fabrics.

Technical textiles have since long been one of the pillars in the product strategy of Picanol. The company produces durable and high performing machine platforms with state-of-the-art technology, which have been tested by thousands of customers. “Our continued investment in R&D resulted in an a continuously increasing array of solutions for the most diverse applications in technical textiles,” the company explains.

“This unique combination of reliable product platforms in rapier and airjet weaving technology on one hand, and dedicated solutions for technical fabric on the other, offer our technical customers the best of all worlds: reliability, performance, flexibility and all this operating in the most sustainable way. Indeed, energy consumption and raw material effectiveness have been development axes since our inception over 80 years ago now.”

Earlier this month, the company also reported its financial results for 2018. Following an absolute record year in 2017, the Weaving Machines division again experienced an excellent year. Based on the well-filled order book, it achieved a strong first half-year, resulting in strong sales. The Industries division also had another strong year, which was driven by Weaving Machines and this was mainly thanks to the strong growth in new projects.
