Booth: H4 B204

The focuses of BMSvision at ITMA 2019 will be Industry 4.0, mobile MES solution and smart textile manufacturing.

Through intelligent wireless networking of all production equipment in the mill, the BMSvision MES solution transfers the huge amount of data originating from the various production machines and processes into meaningful information for the managers.

As introduced, the BMSvision MES suite for the textile industry includes software modules for real time monitoring, reporting, scheduling, preventive maintenance, fabric inspection and traceability. The complete suite is now available for both Oracle and SQL Server as database engine.

The Management dashboard allows the combined presentation of data from different software modules into one single web based reportshowing important KPI’s at a glance. As such, the manager can have all information related to efficiencies, quality and energy consumption displayed in real time in one single screen, either on PC, tablet or mobile phone.

Several new BMSvision products will also be introduced to visitors at the show. The Smart Bracelet is a low cost wearable device promptly informs operators when there is a need to intervene on a machine. As soon as the “Events & Alerts” software of the MES system detects a warning or alarm condition on a certain machine, the operator in charge of the machine is informed as his bracelet starts vibrating and the machine number and type of alarm is displayed on the bracelet’s screen.

Meanwhile, with its new product Argus, BMSvision pushes the boundaries of automatic on-loom inspection. For the first time ever, a system capable of inspecting unicolor Jacquard fabrics is now available for weavers of top quality products, such as OPW airbags, mattress ticking, etc.

The new LT controller is a control unit for warp tension control.The two independent companies Rüti Textil GmbH and CREALET AG seize the opportunity of a joint trade fair participation. Both are experts in the weaving process with the use of the latest technology in the field of industry 4.0.

Crealet AG is specialized in customized warp feed systems and Rüti Textil GmbH is expert in development tasks of the weft insertion. The former has recently introducedits new corporate design, with a refreshed logo.

CREALET develops drives and controls that allow a fast and precise positioning and synchronized movements that support highest system dynamics in an intelligent system network.

The new LT controller is a control unit for warp tension control. It is suitable for various areas of application where the measurement and control of the warp tension is required. Typical areas of application are the control of small warp beams in ribbon weaving or selvedge bobbins on wide weaving machines. It is also used for warp feeding by feed roller when weaving from creel.

The LT control unit was designed for continuous operation in the textile industry, with features for a quick setting. It consists of a display which shows measured warp tension, active functions/settings and display settings in the menu.

A rapidly advancing industrial digitization and trends like smart factory and the Internet-of-Things are challenges and prospects CREALET will handle together with qualified partners. A first step in this direction has already been realized with a customer project in the area of safety-relevant narrow fabrics.

In an ever-changing world, the needs of the weaving mills as well as the expectations of the operators are evolving rapidly. The increasing awareness regarding environmental topics, increasing costs and the availability of resources and skills, as well as the digital revolution, will push the company in new directions.

For this reason, Picanol products are designed with a focus on four principles: smart performance, sustainability inside, driven by data and intuitive control.

As a proof of the company’s commitment to these four principles, Picanol will present its latest developments in rapier and air jet technology.

The fair will see the world premiere of a brand new airjet machine, the OmniPlus-i, which represents a new benchmark in airjet weaving. This further builds on the solid base of nearly 40 years of experience in airjet weaving, during which over 100,000 airjet machines have so far been shipped.

OmniPlus-i is featuring a redesigned reed motion, optimized relay nozzle set up and can be combined with SmartShed, the full electronic controlled shedding motion.

In total, Picanol will have 12 machines on display. In addition to 5 new airjet weaving machines, Picanol will also present 5 rapier weaving machines with many new developments. Furthermore, a rapier machine in Jacquard execution will be on display at the Bonas booth and a terry airjet at the Stäubli booth.
