Itema will exhibit at ITMACH India (Hall 6, Booths A33-34 & B1-2) from December 7th to 10th at The Exhibition Centre in Gandhinagar, Gujarat.
The Italian-based company is participating for the second time in a row at ITMACH, considering this event as the best opportunity to showcase its technological prowess and worldwide organization to the renowned Gujarat textile industry.
Itema will exhibit its best-in-class A9500p air-jet loom in an execution tailored to weave the most popular fabric in the basin, denim.
Launched in the market in 2014, the A9500p still inspires the curiosity and sparks the interest from real technology buffs, and has already amassed important references in many segments, ranging from denim to medical fabrics.
What makes the A9500p the most innovative air-jet loom in the market is a winning duo of crucial advantages: the highest production speed and the lowest power consumption in the market.
The popular recent trend to weave stretch and super stretch denim fabrics with dedicated weft yarns inspired Itema to create and patent the innovative BLC (Brush Lycra Clamp) nozzle to weave elastic weft yarns. Thanks to the BLC nozzle, the weft is held without movable parts to ensure superior fabric quality and reliability. The device is simple and yet ingenious: the BLC is fixed into the main nozzle performing the valuable task of keeping the elastic weft yarn avoiding defects due to the continuous air flow.
The Itema iREED, already a benchmark for the industry, significantly reduces air consumption, and guarantees higher efficient weft insertion. The new reed tunnel shape and new position of the relay nozzle optimize the air flow in the reed channel for higher weft insertion efficiency. Savings are also achieved by reduced air pressure and single hole relay nozzle, which, at the same time, greatly reduces the need for maintenance of the air-jet loom.
Cost saving and superior fabric quality are keywords of another important innovation available on the A9500p: the double tandem nozzles, which guarantee perfect distribution of the pushing force on the weft by lower air pressure, thus leading to multiple benefits including reduced stress on the yarn for top fabric quality and the possibility to weave with lower pressure for energy saving.
Featuring these advanced and denim-dedicated devices, the A9500p ensures the weaver the possibility to weave faster, producing better fabrics and with a smarter usage of resources, and will be running live during the
