WEAVERS IN POLE POSITION 2FAST accelerates performance with speed, quality and versatility
The Textile magazine|August 2021
Speed by name and speed in performance…the brand new 2FAST rapier weaving machine from SMIT is built for ultimate productivity. Its compact design combines maximum output rates with quality and versatility. Made in Italy, it echoes the country’s traditions of speed in motorsports, with competitive performance that is also environmentally kind.

The FAST name stands for Flexible Advanced Shuttleless Technology – and 2FAST is the pride of SMIT. The company’s expertise dates back to 1938, focused on developing the best structural concepts across the whole machine. Today, that takes in mechanical, electronic, and communication aspects, creating optimum weaving machine configurations for high-quality fabrics in the widest application range.

True to the racing spirit…

Imagine an F1 car at the start of a race or a motorcycle that zooms to 100 km/h in less than three seconds... That’s where 2FAST ranks in the weaving machine category. It shows the highest starting acceleration and 100% beat-up efficiency, right from the first weft insertion. Maxi- mum torque is also available for extremely heavy shedding requirements, guaranteeing optimal acceleration to top speeds, along with minimum vibration.

That explains why the SMIT ’racing machine’ delights weavers producing apparel, home textiles, technical applications, and fabrics with exclusive yarns and patterns. All applications benefit from minimum weft cutting, transfer, and release speeds. The spherical crankshaft and one gear stage for the rapier drive maintain the highest regularity in weft insertion.
