SMIT TEXTILE ONE, weaving the future

Smit Textile, leader in design and manufacturing of dynamically controlled flexible ribbons rapier looms, presents the new loom ONE, new technical evolution based on the GS series, already appreciated worldwide for its ease of use and high performances.

The weft insertion performed by a single rapier and the numerous improvements in mechanic and electronic groups increase the already high quality standards and ensure Flexibility, Versatility, Energy Saving, Dedicated Technical Solutions.

Highest versatility and efficiency in terms of weft insertion, ergonomics in style changing, flexibility with the widest range of fabrics, low rates of consumption are the answers to market demands by the new Smit Textile ONE.

Fabrics for fashion, for furnishing, for technical applications, classic fabrics with exclusive yarns and patterns, are today woven with excellent quality and high efficiency on ONE.

Thanks to Smit Textile “dinamically controlled” flexible tape rapiers system, combined with the development of advanced “mechatronic” solutions enhancing the weft insertion, the results obtained with ONE offer decisive competitive advantages, not only in the most sophisticated clothing and furnishing sectors, but also in fields such as those of technical fabrics for safety applications, glass fabrics for electronics, fabrics for filters and for sportswear, in which mono and multifilament yarns are used requiring extreme regularity in the fibres stretching. ONE, the best weaving ever.

The adoption of an insertion system based on one rapier only, therefore without weft transfer in the center of the shed, allows the use of the widest range of yarns, an unparalleled simplicity in the article change and minimum maintenance costs.

The absence of ribbon guide hooks on the carbon fibre punched tape, Free Flight Ribbon System, solution with which Smit Textile has been the precursor for more than 20 years, provides the fastest weaving width change, high textile efficiency and top fabric quality even in presence of the most delicate warp fibers.

Smit Textile, always aware of market needs, has developed energetic and environmental low impact solutions, protecting the safety and health of the working environment, for a perspective of sustainable development.

The original gripper tape mechanism transforms the rotary movement of loom shaft into a reciprocating movement by a very rigid and short kinematic chain, without necessity of other mechanisms or bevel gears that would generate energy dissipation and mechanical inaccuracies

The ONE Smart Platform architecture provides the most advantageous weaving machine configurations to produce high quality fabrics for any sector, widening the weaver’s creativity and the market access.
