Itema, the largest privately-owned manufacturer of best-in-class weaving machines, spare parts and services, plans to showcase its innovations at ITMACH India from December 7 to 10 at The Exhibition Centre, Gandhinagar. Itema offers textile manufacturers top three weft insertion technologies such as 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. The Itema patented and highly innovative solutions allow denim mills to benefit from a significant reduction in energy consumption, thus ensuring twin benefits of the highest production speed and the lowest power consumption in the market.
The popular trend to weave stretch and super stretch denim fabrics with dedicated weft yarns inspired Itema to create and patent the innovative Brush Lycra Clamp (BLC) – nozzle to weave elastic weft yarns. Due to the BLC nozzle, the weft is held without movable parts to ensure superior fabric quality and reliability.
The Itema iREED® significantly reduces the air consumption and guarantees a higher efficient weft insertion. The new reed tunnel shape and new position of the relay nozzle optimise air flow in the reed channel for a higher efficiency weft insertion.
The saving is also due to a reduced air pressure and to the single hole relay nozzle, which, at the same time, greatly reduces the need for maintenance of the Itema airjet weaving machine.
The Itema A9500p with its double tandem nozzles enables cost savings and superior fabric quality. The double tandem nozzles guarantee a perfect distribution of the pushing force on the weft using lower air pressure, thus leading to multiple benefits like reduced stress on the yarn ensuring top fabric quality and the possibility to weave with lower pressure, ensuring energy saving.
The Itema A9500p enables weaver to weave faster, producing better fabrics and with a smarter use of resources. There will be a live demo of the machine in operation throughout the exhibition.
