The new Si27 jacquard is the highest hook capacity jacquard
in the Bonas family.
With its 27,648 hooks it enables the production of high
density fabrics at unrivalled speed. Compared to previous
models, the power consumption has been lowered still by a newly
designed selection and drive mechanism.
The new selection mechanism features the 100% electronic
Bonas micro-selector that allows full diagnostics. The drive
system has also been redesigned resulting in a lighter and
balanced drive mechanism with minimal vibrations.
Si jacquards are the most condensed jacquards in the market
today occupying 40% less space than comparable jacquards with
the same hook capacity.
In some cases, these very compact jacquards can even be
directly installed on the loom, using a superstructure.
Innovations include further developments woven on the JEC
award-winning 3D-Lighttrans weaving machine for multi-layer
woven panels with integrated stringers, omega-profiles and
Other developments relate to new design possibilities in the
field of one piece shoe-weaving, for creating 3D-effects and
