Itema, the Italian global provider of best-in-class weaving solutions, will showcase new innovations on the ITMA fair to be held from June 20-26 at Barcelona, Spain. The recently launched Itematech by Itema, a new division dedicated to technical textiles born as a result of agreement signed with PTMT, will display 3 stands and 11 weaving machines.

At the fair, seven machines will be displayed along with special products highlights in the Itema booth including two absolute new market launches, a never-before-seen weaving insertion concept and a series of weaving novelties, said Itema in a press release.

Developed to provide even the most demanding bed sheeting weavers with an airjet weaving machine capable to reach the highest performances and to guarantee unparalleled fabric quality and design versatility, the Itema airjet A9500-2bedsheeting will make its debut at ITMA 2019. Absolute new launch and core advancement featured on the A9500-2bedsheeting are the brand-new heald frames Skyframe – an Itema exclusive proprietary technology made of aluminium and carbon and designed by Itemalab in cooperation with Lamiflex.

The second airjet weaving machine on display will be the A9500-2, the second generation of the Itema airjet A9500 and A9500p. Summing up all the best features of its predecessors, the A9500-2 further enhances speed and machine performances.

The Itema denim dedicated rapier machine R9500-2denim will come to ITMA equipped with the one-of-a-kind Isaver that represents the unique real sustainable weaving tool in the weaving industry and with a further enhanced weft transfer system and innovative IOT solutions. The brand-new Ibooster package and Icare system implement the most modern principles to provide unparalleled performances and predictive maintenance.

ITMA wil be the official stage for the R9500-2, the second generation of the Itema rapier, now providing significant energy consumption reduction and new valuable features to make weavers life even easier.

Unmissable in the Itema booth will be the R9500terry - the champion of the worldwide high-end terry weaving market. The machine, fully loaded with its famous and unique technological highlights, will show its unparalleled textile versatility and superior fabric quality.

Last but not least, ITMA 2019 will be the absolute world-premiere of what Itema named as ‘The Loom of the Future’. The brand-new Itema Discovery, developed by Itemalab, will demonstrate Itema’s mission to tirelessly work to innovate the weaving industry. Introduced at ITMA as a concept, Discovery completely redefines weaving foundations by basing its operations on mechatronic principles and not anymore, as it happens on current weaving machines, on mechanical drives. The machine – that will run only a couple of times during the exhibition daily demo hours – is set to amaze worldwide weaving aficionados.

In the Itematech stand (hall 4 – a101), the focus will be on technical textiles with 4 weaving machines on display to demonstrate the most comprehensive product portfolio in the market to weave the widest range of technical fabrics.

At ITMA, Itematech will exhibit 4 machines: a) The famous Unirap capable to weave the widest range of carbon fibre and composite yarns on show weaving a linen tape fabric b) the Hercules rapier machine – 380 cm – capable of weaving a heavy filter fabric style c) the Hercules in extra-wide width - 550cm - running geotextile d) the R9500-2 – 280 cm - with FPA-Free Positive Appoach weft transfer weaving a complex filter fabric style.

Last but not least, Lamiflex – the leading supplier of technical composite products of which Itema acquired majority stakes in 2017 – will be present at ITMA (hall 4 – c106) with its ample catalogue of key rapier weft transfer components available for a wide range of rapier machines on the market, such as tapes and sprocket wheels, with an offering that allows the weavers to find in a unique partner the best European quality and sector knowhow with the advantage of a competitive offering.
