Oct '09
The Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers (ACIMIT) and the Italian Trade Commission (ICE) organize, in partnership with the Nonwovens Institute of North Carolina State University, a technical workshop dedicated to Italian technology for the nonwovens and technical textile industries. The event will occurr in Raleigh (November 11th and 12th, 2009) at North Carolina State University.

At the technological meeting some Italian manufacturers of machinery for technical textiles and nonwovens industries will introduce their updated technologies, as well as exchanging views and ideas on technology with the main US companies involved in these sectors.

Technical textiles and nowovens are a reality which is gaining more and more importance in terms of size, thanks to the technological features of its products and to its continuous offer of new and promising market niches.

The sector of innovative textiles embraces several companies, which are leading in different application fields (apparel, geotextiles, etc.). The steady research and innovation activities in the production of technical textiles linked together textile producers and Italian technology suppliers into a success alliance.

ACIMIT estimates that about 100 of its member companies are involved in the production of machinery for technical textiles or nonwovens. This sector is observing a steadily growing turnover, accounting for 10% on the total turnover of Italian textile machinery industry.

The Italian participants at workshop in Raleigh are only part of the Italian supply for this sector. To find out ideal technological partner, textile operators might visit the ACIMIT website (www.acimit.it), where they can discover, in the section reserved to technical textiles, ACIMIT's associate members operating in the sector.

ACIMIT gathers Italian textile machinery companies producing more than 80% of the entire Italian textile machinery production, and some associated members (consortia, technical schools, technical magazines, research centres).
