Itema the Italian manufacturer of weaving machines and spare parts offers technical textile manufacturers the top three weft insertion technologies rapier, airjet and projectile. Itema is exhibiting at Techtextil, Mumbai from September 13 to 15.
The rapier R9500 loom is the perfect machine for the manufacture of the full range of technical textiles, including ones with the finest monofilament yarn, multifilament yarn with high tenacity, and multiple pick insertion fabrics.
The airjet A9500 has already amassed important references, especially in medical applications and automotive fabrics. It is pre-set for independent motorized jacquard with no cardan shaft, allowing to weave specific technical textiles (such as Airbag OPW) with no speed limitations. Key components are reinforced to ensure optimized machine control and reliability while Itema patented devices guarantee reduced consumption and superior textile efficiency.
Technical fabrics are the specialty of the legendary and unique projectile P7300HP due to the unparalleled versatility and reliability of its weft insertion system. The unmatchable uniqueness of the positive weft transfer consists in the single insertion driven by the projectile, which catches the weft and carries it directly with no exchanges, providing unmatched efficiency. It represents a benchmark for those looking to weave the very widest fabrics - up to 655 cm weaving width - and high-specialty materials, such as agro textiles, geo textiles and carpet backing fabrics.
