The most flexible weaving machine in the world – made even better
More flexible, faster and more efficient – the P2 is the culmination of almost seven decades of expertise in developing and building rapier weaving machines. With this latest innovation from DORNIER, its predecessor P1 has been decisively improved in every component of importance to the weaver. With a modular machine design rendering the central module 75% more rigid, increased insertion performance, maintenance-free drives and optimized shed geometry with positive center transfer, the P2 henceforth replaces the P1 as the most flexible rapier weaving machine in the world.
With up to 16 filling thread colors it is the ideal tool for creative, flexible, reliable and efficient production of top quality clothing and domestic textiles or technical textiles in cotton, silk, glass, carbon or aramid. And it can be used with cam motion, dobby (up to 24 shafts) or Jacquard machines with up to 30,000 cards and in conjunction with the EasyLeno® leno system developed by DORNIER.
