ITEMA launches EK808 rapier weaving machine at ITMA ASIA/CITME
Apr '08
Not only the new location makes the upcoming ITMA ASIA/CITME especially important: it is also a chance for the textile and textile machinery industries to take stock of current trends and explore new opportunities.

ITEMA Weaving will participate with a strong presence, with its renowned brands Somet, Vamatex, Sulzer Textil, ITEMA Shanghai, Fimtextile, OMV and Actex, and its complete range of machines, accessories and services.

ITEMA Weaving is aware of its key role as a partner to the textile industry. This is an incentive to develop innovative technological and economic solutions that create new business opportunities and help ensure maximum profitability for weavers.

In Shanghai, visitors will be able to see the latest results of ITEMA Weaving's strong and ongoing R&D commitment, which takes advantage of the synergies generated by pooling experience within the group. Many major innovations and further developments on rapier, air-jet and projectile weaving ma-chines can be found and evaluated at the ITEMA Weaving booth (Hall 6, Booth A05).

Exhibition programme:
ITEMA Weaving's product range can satisfy every production requirement, from commodity to high-fashion and industrial fabrics. Nine weaving machines representing the various brands will be on show.

The highlight will be the EK808, the new ITEMA Shanghai rapier weaving machine: it is the result of experience gained and synergies created within the Euro-Chinese organizations of the com-pany. A further development of the famous K88, the EK808 features improved performance, greater versatility and proven reliability, thanks to advanced solutions adopted from the high-end machines.
