ITM 2022: Innovations in yarn technologies to watch out for

The world’s leading yarn machine manufacturers are preparing to exhibit their newest machinery and innovations they have developed in the last 3 years at the ITM 2022 Exhibition, which will be held between 14-18 June 2022.

International Textile Machinery Exhibition 2022 (ITM 2022), one of the most important events that brings together the world’s textile technology leaders, will be held at Istanbul Tuyap Fair and Congress Center on 14-18 June 2022. Yarn technology manufacturers, which took their place in ITM 2022 (the first international textile machinery exhibition to be held after a 3-year break), are also preparing to introduce their latest developed machines and renewed technologies, just like all the participants.

Norbert Klapper, CEO, Rieter, pointed out that Turkey is one of the largest exporters of textiles globally, building on centuries of know-how in textile manufacturing said; “Thanks to smart investments, the country’s textile industry showed remarkable resilience throughout the pandemic and today is more important than ever. What is even more inspiring is that in keeping with its global leadership, Turkey is also exploring ways to improve the industry’s environmental footprint. The ITM exhibition will bring together the industry’s best and brightest and we look forward to a stunning display of the latest in yarn manufacturing technology that is both good for business and good for the planet.”

Norbert Klapper said the following about the innovations developed by Rieter that they will highlight at the ITM 2022: “We have been delivering leading-edge technology to customers for decades so they can stay at the forefront of the industry and meet ever-more sophisticated demands from brands in Europe and around the globe. In the face of the climate crisis, customers are increasingly turning to Rieter’s recycling system to help them close the loop. Rieter systems are ideally positioned to support these efforts, as they are roughly 20% more energy efficient than lines made up of machines from different suppliers, thus lowering the carbon footprint. With the Autoconer X6 now completing our portfolio in ring and compact spinning, we can support our customers even more effectively in their journey to success.”

Ideal meeting platform

“Considering the importance of the Turkish textile market, ITM is an excellent platform to meet our customers and influences the whole region. There has been a tremendous growth over the past two years in our spinning segment in Turkey, despite the pandemic,” said Pia Terasa, Head of Marketing and Market Intelligence Saurer Spinning Solutions. She continued, “The Covid crisis has intensified discussion about on- and near-shoring. The close proximity to Europe offers Turkey an excellent chance to increase its share of the European textile and apparel market.”

Sharing Saurer’s plans for ITM 2022, Pia Terasa said, “For the Autocoro 10 rotor-spinning machine, we will be introducing innovations that will profit both flexible recycling mills and high productivity mills. Our developments in both rotor and ring spinning are focusing on optimising productivity, saving resources and increasing machine intelligence in textile mills. Here our Senses mill management system plays an essential role as well. The Saurer pre-spinning portfolio has also seen two very successful years in Turkey. Visitors to ITM will also be able to learn more about the Autocard and our successful reference installations. Our team will also highlight future-proof options for automation solutions in spinning mills and our components division will have product news to announce at ITM 2022.”
