Itema’s weaving innovations at ITMACH

Itema, a privately-owned manufacturer of best-in-class weaving machines, spare parts and services, exhibited at ITMACH India (Hall 6 / A33-34 & B1-2) from December 7-10 at The Exhibition Centre, Gandhinagar.

The Italian-based company participated for the second time in a row at ITMACH, considering this event as the best opportunity to showcase its technological prowess and worldwide organisation to the renowned Gujarat textile industry. Gujarat is in fact one of the largest textile regions in India and, more widely, in all Asia, with numerous textile manufacturing companies and with the biggest cotton production in the country.

Itema is present in India since 2002, counting more than 50 employees, with sales and after-sales teams, technical support and advanced repair centres in Mumbai, Coimbatore, New Delhi and Ichalkaranji to ensure the highest possible standard of weaving solutions, with a complete offering and service to its valuable customers in the Indian market.

Itema is uniquely positioned to offer textile manufacturers the top three weft insertion technologies: Rapier, Airjet and Projectile, in what is the most comprehensive portfolio on the market today to weave the widest range of fabrics. During the 2017 edition of ITMACH, Itema will exhibit its best-in-class airjet weaving machine A9500p, in an execution tailored to weave the most popular fabric in the basin, denim.

Airjet weft insertion technology is the most diffused to weave denim, due to the highest possible production speed achievable. Especially when it comes to weaving simple denim fabric constructions, airjet machines ensure the best ratio between productivity and fabric quality.

Itema developed and implemented advanced technical innovations on its airjet machines to easily overcome this limit and to meet the growing trend of weaving stretch denim. Moreover, Itema patented and highly innovative solutions allow denim mills to benefit from a significant reduction in energy consumption.
