Extra flexibility in heddle movement made by Picanol
A weaving machine wouldn’t be a weaving machine without frames and heddles… That’s why the Picanol Group continues to invest in the quality and flexibility of its GTP harness frames
When evaluating feedback from our customers Picanol noticed that the previous generation of frames would sometimes cause issues when trying to reposition the heddles. The centre supports of the frames would block this movement and repositioning was a difficult operation.
Picanol has now developed a new fixed centre support for the GTP frames in which the heddles can be moved to the left or right side of the frame without any tools whatsoever. This greatly reduces the time for making changes to the drawing-in in case of fabric marks. The fixed centre support ensures that top and bottom of the harness frames are still perfectly aligned and that the position of the centre support remains the same for all frames used in the weaving room.
