Weaving Beyond Imagination
UniRap Single Positive Rapier Weaving Machine

Extremely versatile, UniRap enables to weave the widest range of high tenacity yarns, from carbon tape and fibers to fiberglass, aramid fibers, steel and lead-coated yarns, and many others.

Ranging from refined lamé to high tenacity monofilament yarns, passing through bouclé yarns up to carbon, polyester and polypropylene tape, UniRap provides the possibility to weave sophisticated technical fabrics and innovative fashion styles. The absence of the weft exchange, thanks to the positive weft transfer featuring an open patented rapier system, allows the weaver to process the widest range of weft yarns with maximum textile efficiency. Based on reliable and user-friendly electronic and mechanical platforms, and providing excellent ease-of-use, UniRap clearly provides valuable benefits in terms of versatility, performances, and reliability. The insertion cycle is electronically driven, including the weft clamping settings, and the flexible electronic architecture offers real-time management of the on-board automated devices.
