UniRap Single Positive Rapier Weaving Machine
The absence of the weft exchange thanks to the positive rapier weft transfer featuring an open patented rapier system allows the weaver to process the widest range of weft yarns with maximum textile efficiency.
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.
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 guaranteeing to quickly penetrate new market opportunities. 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.
Designed as an open platform, UniRap comes to the market in a variety of configurations enabling the weaver to create the perfect loom for his specific requirements, from standard versions with weft feeders up to 12 colours with Jacquard or dobby shedding machines for fancy apparel or furnishing to the single-color zero twist weft feeding for tape yarns up to 25 mm.
