ACIMIT, the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers, and the Italian Institute for Foreign Trade, have completed in the last days the english version of the textbook of the technologies for the production of nonwovens, a sector where Italy can boast companies and know-how of great importance.

It is a textbook of about 250 pages, furnished by more than 200 images and technical designs, intended both to spread the knowledge of the Italian technologies regarding the nonwovens towards Italian and foreign schools and universities, and to become a useful work- and knowledge tool for the companies belonging to the sector.

The textbook of nonwovens is following other five ACIMIT publications on the main technologies in spinning, man-made fibres, weaving, knitting and finishing, thus completing the series.

300 Italian companies that in 2008 produced machinery for a value of about Euro 2,000 million, pay the highest attention to the requests of the textile industry to propose new solutions of innovation, productivity, safety with the utmost satisfaction of their clients.

The quality of the Italian textile technology is testified by the high number of Countries where the Italian machinery are sold: about 130. In 2008 exports represented 79% of total sales. Asia (with a share of 43%) is the main destination for Italian sector exports, followed by Europe (34%), Latin America (11%), North America (5%) and Africa (7%).

The sector of technical and innovative textiles is 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.

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.

This Textbook is part of ACIMIT and Italian Institute for Foreign Trade promotional programme for technical textiles and nonwovens sector, which in 2009 includes also a Meeting Point “Italia” at Techtextil Frankfurt, a workshop in India for automotive textiles, a training course for Chinese operators involved in nonwovens and technical textiles sectors, a workshop in the Unites States and other activities focalized on Brazilian market.
