The R9500-2denim, a racehorse in Itema’s rapier technology portfolio, is a weaving machine equipped with the one-of-a-kind iSAVER, a device developed by Itemalab, which eliminates the waste selvedge on the left-hand side of the fabric, allowing never-before-seen raw materials and economic savings. iSAVER established a new benchmark in the weaving industry and today represents the only device effectively running in real weaving conditions, capable of contributing to a sustainable weaving process, according to a press release by Itema.
Moreover, an Itema rapier R9500-2 in jacquard version and weaving furnishing fabrics will also be exhibited at the event.
“We are excited to be finally back at India ITME 2022. India is a key market for Itema and we really value our Indian customers. Our target is much more than selling our weaving machines. We aim at creating long-lasting partnerships built on mutual success,” said Ugo Ghilardi, Itema Group CEO.
“The year 2022 represents a landmark year for Itema in India. We are proud to see how our weaving technology is nowadays recognised as the most versatile and the most reliable in terms of textile mastery and performances. In 2022, we established a new record: Itema is by far the best-selling supplier of high-end rapier weaving machines in India,” said general manager sales Sameer Kulkarni, Itema Weaving India.
This success is largely due to the Itema leadership of the Surat region, where weavers selected the Itema rapier weaving machines R9500-2 and R9000-2 as their preferred option for weaving sophisticated fashion apparel and saree fabrics. Both with dobby and jacquard shedding, the Itema rapier technology demonstrated superior performances in terms of fabric quality and insertion of fancy yarns.
Itema is present in India with a fully operational branch since 2003, counting more than 50 employees, with sales and after-sales teams, technical support, and advanced repair centres to ensure the highest possible standard of weaving solutions, with a complete offering and range of services for its customers in the Indian market, added the release.
Itema is a trusted partner of many Indian weaving mills, from large textile conglomerates to smaller textile manufacturers, providing advanced and user-friendly weaving technology and real-time assistance, from the initial negotiation stage and throughout the whole machine life cycle. The Itema staff will be present at India ITME 2022 to welcome customers and partners to illustrate the company’s latest innovations and full range of weaving solutions, including OEM spare parts of Itema and previous brands, Schoch reeds, and other ranges of accessories.
