Itema exhibited at TEMTECH in India
Itema S.p.A, the largest privately owned multinational company and global leading provider of best-in-class weaving machines, spare parts and services, has been exhibiting at TEMTECH – North India’s Largest Textile Machinery & Spare Parts Exhibition – from February 6-8 in Bhilwara, Rajasthan, India
Taking place in the famous textile hub of Bhilwara, Temtech is a must for Italian Itema, offering a perfect occasion to meet face-to-face valuable Customers in the region and discuss first-hand the very latest innovations that will benefit the broad base of weavers in the region
Itema comes from the more-than-positive experience of ITMA Milan, where the Company showcased not only its innovative weaving machines, but also the newly improved spare parts portal and the ultimate real-time loom management system, reaping a huge success from the audience. A consistent number of orders have already been collected, from loyal and historical Customers, but also from brand-new contacts, thus representing a major point of satisfaction and confidence for the future.
With a comprehensive sales and after-sales service organization in India operating from own offices in Mumbai, as well as Coimbatore, New Delhi and Kohlapur, the Italian-headquartered Company is present at Temtech to introduce to the sophisticated Indian weavers the technical advantages and superiority of Itema-branded weaving machines and the latest entries in the championship portfolio of the technology major.
Introduced for the first time in September 2015, the new R9500terry is the racehorse when it comes to terry weaving. Itema, the first and foremost rapier terry loom manufacturer, carries on the excellence in this application of historic Sulzer and Vamatex brands. Besides this strong inheritance, what makes R9500terry an extraordinary weaving machine for terry weavers are the sturdy structure and reliable mechanical components coming from the Itema absolute best-seller, the rapier R9500, and the exceptional textiles results obtained due to an extensive and thorough R&D work. Unparalleled textile quality is guaranteed by a winning trio of innovative devices: the new positive pile back-rest roller, the new pile formation unit and the new ground back-rest roller. Fulvio Carlo Toma, Itema Group Sales & Marketing Director, commented: “The new R9500terry, after a few months from market launch, already enjoys a spectacular market success. Orders are coming in continuously from Portugal, Turkey, China, Ethiopia, El Salvador, South Korea, Japan, just to name a few Countries. The whirlwind market acceptance of our R9500terry is just a further testimony that innovation coupled with the strongest know-how in the market pays back with enormous satisfaction.”
Always focused on the weavers’ needs, Itema concentrated its R&D extensive research to offer to the market even more efficient weaving machines, where efficiency stands for increased performances, reduced consumption and enhanced user-friendliness.
An example of this strategic concept is the A9500p, already well-known and appreciated by many weavers in India, launched in 2014 as the excellence flagship of Itema’s airjet portfolio.
During ITMA Milan, Itema introduced its best-in-class airjet machine, the A9500p, equipped with a new and innovative feature: the double tandem nozzles, which ensure enhanced machine efficiency and superior fabric quality. In fact, the double tandem nozzles guarantee a perfect distribution of the pushing force on the weft using a lower air pressure, thus leading to a double benefit: reduced stress on the yarn allowing top fabric quality and, at the same time, the possibility to weave with a lower pressure ensuring energy saving.
ITMA Milan has been the proper stage to officially launch the new Itema rapier weaving machine R9500p. Born from the pedigree of the premier rapier R9500 loom, and destined to run even better, smarter and faster, the new R9500p offers the perfect blend of ultimate versatility and productivity through an ensemble of exclusive technological features and brand-new innovations. Together these meet and exceed even the most demanding requirements of customers competing in rapidly changing markets. In the words of the Managing Director of Itema India, Mr Updeep Singh: “R9500p is, no doubt, the perfect machine in segments such as denim and shirting, core markets in India, due to its best-in-class technical advancements which guarantee unbeatable performances, speed and versatility”.
Singh refers, among others highlights, also to the new weft transfer SK Rapier 2.0, which ensures improved weavability at high speed, thanks to the new right-hand side rapier head designed for enhanced flexibility and to the innovative Loom Cooler, which allows the reduction of the oil temperature by decreasing the thermal load to be drained by the conditioning system.
