Italian company ITEMA, a leading provider of advanced weaving solutions, including best-in-class weaving machines, spare parts and services, is holding a two-day Open House in Japan, on the premises of DAIKI Co., Ltd, one of Itema’s customers and a leading weaver of automotive fabrics.
 
At the Open House, to go on till September 12, 2014, Itema is displaying its latest advancements in weaving technology, with a specific focus on the R9500, the best-selling rapier model which enables customers to produce a wide range of high quality fabrics, whilst achieving greater levels of creativity and success.
 
Itema is exhibiting four looms in total, in a joint display of technological advancements in collaboration with Stäubli Japan, leading manufacturer of advanced shedding machines and other textile machinery.
 
“Japan and the entire Asia Pacific basin is an increasingly important and thriving market for Itema registering solid results in 2013 and an encouraging growth in the first semester 2014. We look forward to a continuing positive outlook also thanks to our close collaboration with progressive, innovating companies like DAIKI, as well as partners like Stäubli,” said Mr. Fulvio Carlo Toma, group sales & marketing director of Itema in a statement.
 
“I would like to wholeheartedly thank our gracious host, Mr. Yamamoto, for offering DAIKI’s impressive premises for the event… I am constantly in awe of the fabrics that our Customers produce and DAIKI is an excellent example of such creativity, sophistication and premium quality possible to weave on Itema branded looms,” Mr. Toma added.
 
Itema is the only manufacturer in the world to provide the top three shuttleless weft insertion technologies: rapier, airjet and projectile. In the first half of 2014, the company’s sales grew at 12 percent year-on-year. The rapier R9500 model, launched less than two years ago, accounted for 50 percent of all weaving machines sales at Itema in the first half. (RKS)
