Itema, the global leading provider of advanced weaving solutions, including weaving machines, OEM spare parts and integrated services, is exhibiting at SITEX (Booth 226) from January 7th – 9th at the Surat International Exhibition and Convention Centre (SIECC).
Itema confirms its trust and esteem towards the Surat textile entrepreneurs and, for the second year in a row showcases its unique weaving portfolio at Sitex.
2022 has been for Itema a remarkable year in terms of growth and part of this success is specifically linked to the Surat Region. In fact, as Sameer Kulkarni – Itema Weaving India General Manager Sales explains “Itema registered in Surat an unprecedented growth over the last year. We installed an amazing number of Itema weaving machines in the textile mills of the Region. We are proud to cooperate with the creation of some of the most beautiful fabrics in India and to support the talent of the Surat weavers with our advanced weaving technology.”
Itema is by far the leading supplier of rapier weaving technology in the Region, thanks to the excellent versatility and the superior textile mastery of its rapier machines which guarantee to Surat weavers to produce at best their fancy, sophisticated and fashionable Saree and women’s dress fabrics. The impressive number of Itema rapier R9500 and R9000 family models installed in Surat mills testifies how the Itema weaving technology is preferred by weavers to produce fabrics made with different yarns and weaving patterns.
Itema will showcase at SITEX a rapier R9500-2 weaving machine, in weaving width 3800mm and equipped with a Stäubli LXM 5376 hooks Jacquard shedding machine. The machine on display in Stäubli booth (booth 243) will weave a fabric traditionally produced in the mills of the Region and is configured to meet the local weavers production needs.
