Itema Exhibiting Innovations in Air-Jet & Rapier Weaving at INDIA ITME 2016

Itema has prepared an impressive product line-up for INDIA ITME 2016, and will exhibit five looms in its booth and one rapier loom with jacquard application in the Stäubli booth.

Visitors will have the chance to see the R9500 rapier loom in demonstration weaving a high-end shirting fabric in 190 cm width. This loom will feature the latest technological advancements dedicated specifically to shirting applications, such as the brand-new Itema Pneumatic Tuckers, the most appreciated in this specific market segment allowing reduced maintenance costs and no speed limitations.

Officially presented for the first time in India, the Itema R9500terry will demonstrate its strong leading position in weaving the most refined and soft terry fabrics.

Three air-jet looms will be on display, covering all the main air-jet application fields growing continuously in the Indian and surroundings markets. An A9500 weaving a bed sheeting style in 340 cm, will run with the latest improvements designed to excel in this market, meeting weavers’ requirements for the widest versatility and substantial cost savings.

A stretch denim fabric will be woven on an A9500p, the racehorse model in the Itema air-jet portfolio. The recent popular trend to weave stretch and super stretch fabrics with specialty weft yarns, inspired Itema to create and patent the innovative BLC (Brush Lycra Clamp) nozzle to weave elastic weft yarns.

The third air-jet machine is an A9500p weaving a top-quality yarn-dyed shirting and featuring another Itema patented feature, the Electronic Leno Device (ELD) that with its innovative design, self-cleaning and no need to wind the leno spools, provides perfect leno binding even at the highest speeds, while operational costs are reduced significantly.
