Description de la fonction


Manipulating yarns is a core competence for Picanol; with yarn speeds reaching up to 100 m/s and accelerations over 4,000 m/s², this represents a continuous field of research. The yarn propulsion systems of the weaving loom can be either reciprocating mechanical clamps or a jet of air surrounding the yarn and pulling it forward. Work in this research field aims to increase the speed of the insertion while keeping control over the yarn behavior and minimizing the forces acting on the yarn in order to obtain good quality fabric.

Your task
You will help in terms of designing, conceiving and studying mechanical, electromechanical or pneumatical systems that contribute to an improved and better performing yarn insertion system.
