Job description

Picanol’s highly dynamic weaving machines process textile yarns into woven fabric. The yarns, the weaving process itself and the fabric have a stochastic nature. An in-depth understanding of the weaving process is necessary in order to determine the requirements for the machine and to find optimal settings to produce the highest quality fabric. Work in this research field aims at measuring and observing the weaving process and its parameters with two main purposes: to obtain a better understanding and to evaluate the textile performance of the loom.

Your task
You will assist or perform weaving tests. You will then interpret data from such tests and monitor a proper set-up for the experiments.
