At the end of June, one of the most modern mills in the world belonging to medical gauze fabrics manufacturer Ada Fios in Porto, Portugal, was hit by a devastating fire which completely destroyed its spinning and weaving machines.

Less than a week later, Luis Andrade, CEO of the Ada Group, negotiated the speedy delivery of 112 new airjet machines from Picanol, in order not to too badly jeopardize the operation.

“Not only is Picanol making a huge effort to guarantee a record delivery time for these machines, with deliveries scheduled to start in September, but the Picanol service team – which has a local presence in Portugal – is already making the necessary preparations to have the new OmniPlus-i machines in full operation in the shortest possible time,” says Picanol sales manager Lieven Engelbeen.

The OmniPlus-i airjet machine, which was first introduced to the market at the ITMA textile fair in Barcelona in June 2019, is characterised by the highest performance levels, lowest energy consumption, maximum user-friendliness, and a wide data application palette that is ready for the Industry 4.0 environment. Ada Fios will soon have an even more modern weaving mill than its previous one.
