Tremendous growth opportunities in Asia – ITEMA

Nov '09
The International Trade Fair for Technical and Industrial textiles-Techtextil held in Mumbai, India in October 2009 revealed great growth opportunities for the local textile industry. The International Technology & Machinery Group “ITEMA” with its globally renowned brand for technical textiles - Sulzer Textil presented latest weaving machine developments and innovative upgrading options for highly demanding fabric applications.

Tremendous growth opportunities
It is undisputed that technical & industrial textiles – and in particular woven fabric constructions are steadily gaining importance and widening their range of technical applications. Developing economies in Asia will profit from interesting production perspectives but also consumption oppor-tunities. This became again very evident during the recent Techtextil held in Mumbai, India. The technical textile industry in India is expected to grow by more than 10 % per year for the next several years. Some of the growth engines are believed to be in following sectors:

• Agrotech (e.g.anti-hail nets, crop covers, erosion protection materials)
• Packtech (e.g. FIBCs, leno & laundry bags)
• Mobiltech (e.g. airbags, car-aircraft-rail upholstery, automotive carpets, helmets)
• Hometech (e.g. carpet backings, mosquito nets)
• Spartech (e.g. tents, artificial turf, parachute fabrics, sleeping bags)
• Protech (e.g. ballistics, fire retardant apparel & fabrics, NBC suits)
• Geotech (e.g. geotextiles, geosynthetics, geogrids)
• Indutech (e.g. conveyor & drive belts, bolting cloth, fiber glass)

Market know-how, innovative solutions and the right weaving technology
Stringent demands made on the quality of woven technical fabrics and their cost-optimized produc-tion determine trends in weaving machine refinements and development. Fast and reliable settings of different warp and weft materials, absolute reproducibility of fabric styles as well as quick style changing facilities on weaving machines for a quick turnaround of styles are a necessity for the success of weavers in the field of technical and industrial textiles.

The technology brand “Sulzer Textil” has been successfully used in fields of technical and indus-trial weaving applications for decades, covering agro- and geotextiles, floor coverings, heavy-duty packaging materials, airbags, car-, aircraft & rail upholstery, canvas, tarpaulins, conveyors, ballistic materials, leno applications, filtration, sail cloth, coating fabrics, medical textiles, composite materi-als and many more. More than 30 % of installed machines occupy most demanding niche seg-ments, be it for widest, heaviest, densest or very lose fabric constructions made from any kind of yarn. The Sulzer Textil brand covers weft insertion systems from Rapier (G6500), Air-jet (L5500) to Projectile (P7300HP V8) as well as Customized Weaving Technology (CWT) for specific needs in areas of complex fabric forming.
