Our vision is to offer to our worldwide customer’s tangible innovations that, based on the most advanced engineering principles, can improve their productivity, competitiveness on the market, and user experience.”
The new Itema EVO Weaving Range includes:
• Advanced solutions for the weft transfer to enhance versatility and machine performance
• The new iSAVER® range which, following its undisputed market success in denim weaving, is now available in up to 6 colors and for many more fabrics, thus significantly increasing the applications of sustainable weaving
• Innovative digital software to enhance user experience and optimize textile production, such as iKNOW™ – the innovative tool that contains all the Itema textile experts’ know-how collected on the field over the years – and MyWeave™ the new, advanced mill monitoring system
• Optimization of key machine components to further improve machine performance, ensure the best possible machine accessibility, and reach unbeatable reliability while preserving the renowned compactness of the Itema weaving machines, which provides weavers with valuable additional space in the weaving floor to install more looms.
New digital solutions, such as the brand-new Itema Customer Portal HelloItema, further enriches the visitors’ experience. Moreover, besides the unmissable weaving innovations on stage, the Itema Group booth hosts all the Group companies and solutions.
In fact, the Itema Group companies Lamiflex® and Schoch® with their advanced accessories for weaving machinery have dedicated corners in the Itema Group booth, and Itema and previous brands’ OEM spare parts are exhibited, including upgrade kits to optimize machine performance and retrofit latest Itema innovations on existing looms. Itemalab®, the Itema advanced innovation hub, has a special environment inside the booth to boost the innovation mission of Itema.
In addition, the booth hosts the range of nylon and polyester yarns from RadiciGroup, a leading group in the production of textile solutions for numerous markets such as apparel, furnishings, and automotive.
