Itema rapier machines
Itema will display the R9500 rapier weaving machine, the 2013 best-seller, which, at just one year from launch, represents one-third of Itemas revenue from weaving machines. The R9500 will be available weaving a Technical style. The newest R9000 rapier, also on display at ITMA Asia and weaving a Shirting style, is designed for easy use and provides the best balance between cost and perk. Other rapier weaving machines carrying the Itema brand and on show in Shanghai are the R880DT with Jacquard weaving Terry cloth. Itema will show several rapier machines in partners booths, of which two R9500, one with Bonas Jacquard for the Furnishing and Tapestry segment and another with StSubli Jacquard for the Fancy Automotive segment. Two other rapier machines on display in partner booths are R9000, one with Grosse Jacquard weaving an Upholstery style, and another with Song & Song Jacquard weaving Furnishing style.
Itema airjet machines
As with the Rapier preview above, we are equally excited to demonstrate the innovation and performance of our airjet machine - the A9500. In the words of our CEO Carlo Rogora: "We Cant Wait! Itema has prepared the machines with challenging applications to illustrate unprecedented performance in speed, diversification and energy consumption. Saving the details for the show, Itema will present a brand new concept that leaves the competition behind. ITMA Asia provides the perfect venue to validate the dedicated efforts of Itemas R&D engineers."
