PICANOL to present its latest Weaving Innovations at the ITM 2022 Fair

The ITM 2022 fair is being held at the TÜYAP Fair Convention & Congress Center in Istanbul from June 14 – 18, 2022. Picanol will be showcasing its latest technology in Hall 2, Booth 219. ITM is the first major textile machinery fair where Picanol’s latest developments, which were released at the end of 2021, will be shown to a live audience. Not only will four machines from the Connect generation be on display at the Picanol booth but the new and fully digital platform PicConnect will also be demonstrated. With these innovations, Picanol has once again confirmed its leading role among weaving machine manufacturers.

 

 

“With our strong presence at this exhibition, we want to make a clear statement on the importance of this market for Picanol. Our team is really excited and looking forward to explaining how our innovations will ensure we continue to grow together with the Turkish textile industry and our customers in particular,” explains Mr. Kurt Lamkowski, Manager Worldwide Sales.

On the occasion of the ITM fair, Picanol will also highlight its recently launched PicConnect platform. PicConnect offers Picanol customers a wide range of features, from industrial IoT to service-related applications. This includes, for example, the new webshop for Picanol Original Quality Parts, which is called PartsLine. Therefore, PicConnect truly is a “must-have” for all our customers. “Going a step further and connecting Picanol weaving machines to PicConnect will allow our customers to leverage the full extent of the machine possibilities. The brand-new functionalities, such as the applications for energy and production monitoring, the file management system, and the style administration application can be discovered at http://www.picanol.be/machines-features/picconnect,” continues Mr. Lamkowski.
