Picanol Rapier weaving machines have taken off in recent years. This is partly due to the development of the various guiding systems and the stability of the current machines.
Picanol rapier looms have the Guided Gripper System (GC), the Free Flight System (FF) and the Guided Positive Gripper System (GPG). With this last unique system, developed by Picanol itself, the applicability of the Picanol rapier looms has been further extended and embraced by the weavers.
