The new OmniPlus-i features a redesigned reed motion, optimized relay nozzle set up, and it can be combined with SmartShed, the full electronic controlled shedding motion.
Verstraete continued her words saying; “We have been successfully serving the Indian market since 1956; and in light of the potential and expected growth of the Indian market, we decided to set up our own organization in India in early 2008. The aim behind this move was to ensure that we could more actively support our Indian customers. With the broadest product range on the market in both airjet and rapier weaving machines; improved local services and considerable presence; we remain highly committed to the Indian market and it is our ambition to further reinforce our position; as the leading provider of weaving machines for the entire Indian textiles sector”.
