ITEMA Weaving, with the established brands of Sultex, Vamatex and Somet, is set to present its latest innovation in technology at ITMA 2011 in Barcelona, Spain (September 22nd – 29th).

Keeping with its tradition to provide the widest range of weaving solutions to the market, ITEMA Weaving plans to exhibit their new Sultex A9500 Air Jet and the Vamatex Silver 501 Rapier Weaving Machines for the first time at ITMA Barcelona.

Both the A9500 and Silver 501 boast a completely new electronic platform. ITEMA Weaving will introduce the “Loom Browser”, a software package that allows the customer quick & easy access to monitor efficiency, stop levels, change & download machine settings and/or create and download weft & dobby patterns. Further, this new platform offers real time Remote Diagnostic Support. Simply connect to the internet to access ITEMA's World Wide Service Network for professional technical support.

Highlight of the show: the new Sultex A9500 Air Jet Weaving Machine
With its high performance and simplified design, the Sultex A9500 air jet weaving machine sets new standards for productivity and operational simplicity. No compromises were made during the design. The A9500 produces excellent fabric quality; its minimal air consumption is unrivaled.

The long weft insertion time and the high efficient nozzles insure the optimum acceleration curve for any type of yarn. The new electronic platform, through its large, full color touch screen display offers new functionalities and opens the doors to an efficient dialogue with the ITEMA Service Network.
