ITEMA Weaving with its brands Sulzer Textil, Somet and Vamatex, will present its latest technical innovations on weaving machinery at ITMA ASIA + CITME in Shanghai, 22 - 26 June. Among the widest range of weaving machines, accessories and services, ITEMA Weaving will exhibit the Vamatex R880 rapier weaving machine for the very first time ever to public.
ITEMA Weaving is the only company to produce weaving machines with the three leading weft insertion systems, providing the right weaving technology for every application. Together, Pro-matech Italy, ITEMA Switzerland and ITEMA Weaving Machinery China are the world's number one weaving machinery manufacturer, with roughly 300,000 units installed worldwide.
ITEMA Weaving: ECO solutions Over the last years, R&D focussed on developing solutions for energy saving, waste reduction, noise/vibrations reduction and long lasting reliable products. Today, the ITEMA Weaving's ECO -Environmental Care Obligation program is realized in solutions and machines that are not just ECOlogic but also ECOnomic.
All ITEMA weaving machines are energy friendly due to efficient drive motors and high-tech solu-tions. For instance, the Sulzer Textil L5500 air-jet weaving machine is the bench mark in regard of air consumption. Furthermore, considerable efforts have been made to reduce the yarn waste generated by the weft insertion. This means a direct reduction of yarn consumption but also a sav-ing in the waste reprocessing.
A superior quality of woven fabrics and the prevention of stop marks are other key points of ITEMA weaving machines. The consequence of the unrivalled fabric quality is the reduced management of waste and therefore the higher competitiveness in the fabric market. The return on investment is also considerably improved by the use of simple and reliable software which will automatically im-prove the machine efficiency.
ITEMA Weaving's product range can satisfy every production requirement, from commodity to high-fashion and industrial fabrics. Six weaving machines representing the various brands will be on show.
