This year marks a new milestone for the fifth ITMA ASIA + CITME 2016 exhibition when it opens with the largest show in the series since its inception. A total of 1,673 exhibitors from 28 countries and economies are showcasing a wide array of machinery and solutions to an expected visitorship of around 100,000 during the five-day exhibition. The combined exhibition grosses over 170,000 square meters of exhibition space – 12 per cent larger than the last edition. It is the biggest showing since the first edition. The exhibition held on 21-25 October 2016. Textile Focus Technical Team closely monitored the exhibition. Here we are presenting some latest new technology for the world renowned companies for our readers.
Mayer & Cie’s Spinit 3.0 E technology that combines three operations viz. spinning, cleaning and knitting would be officially launched in the Chinese market at ITMA Asia + CITME. This is the first machine type to be equipped with Mayer & Cie’s spinit systems technology.
This three-in-one concept, presented at the 2015 ITMA in Milan in the shape of the market-ready Spinit 3.0 E, is a completely new approach by Mayer & Cie. Using false twist spinning process, roving is converted directly into high-quality knitwear. According to Mayer & Cie, the benefits of the Spinit jersey can be felt as well as seen. The resultant fabric is very soft, fluffy and even, with a slight sheen and the stitches do not twist after washing.
There are also numerous pattern options which are made possible with the fancy module, a system which enables the Spinit to vary the fineness of yarn during the production process and create entirely new patterns that cannot be knitted in any other way.
