Biancalani: The finishing specialists

Biancalani Srl, a historic company in the textile machinery sector, started with designing and building finishing machines for woollen and woollen-blended fabrics, but over the years it has also developed other machinery, not only for the woollen sector but for all the other types of textiles.

Biancalani has dedicated considerable resources for research and developments, to offer its customers exclusive novel and completely unknown finishing of textiles.

At ITMA 2019 in June in Barcelona, Spain, the Tuscan company presented four innovations.


Among the most successful technologies of Biancalani is AIRO, a softening, drying and washing machine, with a particular system of dragging the fabric in an air jet, which gives a modern soft and voluminous appearance with great draping and elasticity, precisely the "Airo hand."

Its continuous open width variation, AIRO 24, is already very well known and widespread in all textile finishing departments in countries such as Turkey, India, China and many others. The new version shown at Barcelona presented technical innovations that stimulated new reasoning and great interest both for those who already use a continuous tumbler and for those looking for new, reliable and cutting-edge solutions for this technology.


Biancalani presented a new version of BRIO 24, a discontinuous relaxing dryer, exploiting the combined result of an intense mechanical shake while drying, guarantees a perfect relaxation, permanent dimensional stability for each type of knitted fabric and a substantial reduction in spirality. The continuous relaxing dryer BRIO 24 can ensure very high production of knitwear fabric, in multiple compositions, both in open-width and in tabular form, guaranteeing an excellent hand, softness and volume.


AIRBOX as most versatile pre-dryer that allows the user to greatly expand the drying performance of their traditional finishing lines. With a machine that is simple and intuitive to operate, production capacities are greatly enhanced.

At ITMA it was positioned in line with the continuous AIRO 24 tumbler, but it can be used in the drying department in front of many other machines, improving their performances, or, thanks to its excellent capacity and efficiency, as a complete and compact drying system, independent or integrated into a line.


AQUARIA, an innovative continuous open-width washing machine based on the AIRO principle and AIRO 24 experience, and offers great performances for all types of wet treatment, from preparation to washing after printing, with special attention to treatments with enzymes, applicable to every type of fabric.
