Itema will exhibit its R9500denim rapier loom at the 14th Dhaka International Textile & Garment Machinery Exhibition (DTG 2017) from February 23rd to 26th.
The R9500denim will be showcased for the first time in Bangladesh, and is a brand-new product concept launched in October 2016 at ITMA ASIA+CITME. The loom is dedicated exclusively and especially to denim mills in search of customized solutions to respond faster, more effectively and efficiently to changing denim trends with versatile, high-performance, ad-hoc machinery.
Christian Straubhaar, Itema Group’s Sales & Marketing Director, says, “We, at Itema, are ready to actively support denim mills with our rapier R9500denim designed especially for markets like Bangladesh, to provide weavers with the perfect machine engineered for the highest performance, superior fabric quality, lower running costs and maximum versatility of patterns needed to excel in denim production.”
The R9500denim comes fully accessorized and equipped with dedicated devices, including the new main motor with oil cooling to ensure unparalleled machine performances. Unrivalled textile versatility is guaranteed by the unique Itema shed geometry, widely recognized in the industry as best-in-class, and the SK weft transfer system featuring reinforced rapier heads and tapes optimized to weave denim weft yarns.
The R9500denim on exhibit at DTG will be weaving a 14-oz. denim, highlighting Itema machines’ unique-in-the-market ability to produce even the most demanding and heavy denim styles, due to the sturdy machine structure and to the renowned Itema shed geometry. Even though the width of the machine (2,200 mm) may not seem usual for Bangladeshi denim weavers, the aim of Itema is to introduce the latest trend in the global denim market related to looms width necessary to weave stretch and super-stretch denims.
