Itema R9500-2denim: to make its debut in China
The second generation of the Itema denim-dedicated rapier weaving machine, the R9500-2denim will be exhibited for the first time in China for the benefit of Asia-Pacific weavers.
Launched in April 2018, the Itema R9500-2denim already became the success case of the year, amassing interest and requests from all over the world. ITMA Asia visitors will see first-hand the extraordinary advantages provided to denim weavers by the R9500-2denim.
Unparalleled cost savings, superior fabric quality and outstanding user-experience are the key words of the R9500-2denim which features breakthrough devices and enhanced skills guaranteeing an unrivalled competitive advantage in the market to denim mills.
Saving is the crucial point of the R9500-2denim. Not only the optimization of the main mechanical components allows a considerable energy consumption reduction but the machine is equipped with the iSAVER (TM), a revolutionary device, never-before-seen in the industry, that eliminates the waste selvedge on the left-hand side of the fabric thus leading to unparalleled savings.
Designed and developed by ItemaLab – the Itema advanced innovation department, the iSAVER (TM) combines the most innovative mechatronic principles and provides the saving that the weaver never expected that would have been possible to get. Furthermore, for the first time in the weaving industry, a sustainable approach to fabric production is possible thanks to a significant reduction in resource use and wastage.
The R9500-2denim is produced with the same quality guarantee in both Itema world class manufacturing plants in Italy and in China, guaranteeing the fastest time to market and the same excellent machine to worldwide Customers.
Itema R9000-2: presented to the weaving world for the first time at ITMA Asia 2018
Produced and assembled in the Itema manufacturing plant in China, the R9000 comes at ITMA Asia in a fully revamped version by borrowing some of the latest Second Generation technological advancements implemented on the Itema R9500-2denim. The R9000 Second Generation will set the machine even further apart from its competition due to tangible and substantial benefits for the weaver. In fact, the R9000-2 has been implemented with optimized components and mechanical highlights leading to significant energy saving and performance improvements compared to the previous model.
Moreover, the new machine’s ergonomy guarantees an outstanding user-friendliness by facilitating machine accessibility for the weaver when carrying out daily textile operations and the Itema Electronic NCP – New Common Platform – comes here loaded on a high-performance, super sensitive touch-screen console. The R9000-2 on show at ITMA Asia – weaving a fashion apparel style – is equipped with the Itema FPA – Free Positive Approach weft transfer which – due to no guiding elements in the shed – ensures superior versatility. Furthermore, the R9000-2 will run with the Stäubli dobby 2678 providing enhanced speed and superior machine’s performances.
Itema booth: the complete line-up
In addition to R9000-2 and R9500-2denim, two more rapier machines and two airjet machines will be exhibited in the Itema booth.

Considering the prevalence of technical fabrics production in China and in Asian Countries, the R9500 540cm weaving a coating fabric style will definitely represent an attention point in the weaving hall.
On the airjet side, ITMA Asia will be the stage for two Itema airjet machines, the A9500 weaving an apparel fabric and the A9500p weaving a bottom weight fabric.
Developed to run faster and launched in the market during ITMA Asia in 2014, the A9500p is today a real market success due to its tireless production capacity demonstrated in the most demanding Indian mills where a huge number of A9500p daily weave non-stop and with superior fabric quality the widest range of apparel fabrics at the highest production speed.
The A9500p on display during the upcoming ITMA Asia will be equipped with all the outstanding technological advancements which make this machine the most innovative airjet in the playground, including the Itema Double Tandem Nozzles which provide superior fabric quality and significant cost savings.

Itema exhibits best-in-class weaving innovations for technical fabrics at TECHTEXTIL INDIA September 13th – 15th, 2017 Hall 6 – Stand C109
NEWS – 12/09/2017
Colzate (Italy) and Mumbai (India) – Itema, the largest privately-owned manufacturer of best-in-class weaving machines, spare parts and services, is exhibiting at Techtextil India (Hall 6 – C109) from September 13th to 15th at the Bombay Convention & Exhibition Centre in Mumbai.
Itema is registering an upward trend in inquiries for advanced weaving machines from weavers of technical fabrics and the Italian technology major – with over 180 years of combined expertise from the merger of three historic brands, such as Sulzer, Somet and Vamatex – expects that this trend will continue for the foreseeable future.
Focusing on the Indian market, several trade and textile experts identify technical textiles as the market segment of the future since the internal demand is constantly growing reflecting the worldwide trend.
Itema is present in India since 2002, counting more than 50 employees, with sales and after-sales teams, technical support and advanced repair centers in Mumbai, Coimbatore, New Dehli and Ichalkaranji to ensure the highest possible standard of weaving solutions, with a complete offering and service to its valuable Customers in the Indian market.
Itema is uniquely positioned to offer technical textile manufacturers the top three weft insertion technologies Rapier, Airjet and Projectile, in what is the most comprehensive portfolio on the market today for technical applications to weave the widest range of fabrics.
The rapier R9500 loom is by far the most successful rapier loom in recent history. The continuous roll-out of customized special versions tailored for technical applications, including OPW Airbag, Fiber Glass, Bolting Cloth, among others, the wide weaving width up to 540 cm, as well as new and advanced devices make the R9500 by Itema 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 – the most innovative airjet weaving machine in the market – inspires the curiosity and sparks the interest from real technology buffs and has already amassed important references, especially in medical applications and automotive fabrics.
Looking at specific technical applications, the Itema airjet A9500 provides undeniable benefits, matching unparalleled performances and the highest productivity with superior textile efficiency.
The Itema A9500 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.
When it comes to weaving very high density fabrics, the A9500 is customized with dedicated devices to ensure best-in-class results. Key components are reinforced to ensure optimized machine control and reliability whilst 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.
The P7300HP continues to harness great interest from projectile weaving aficionados and represents an unbeaten and unbeatable benchmark for those looking to weave the very widest fabrics – up to 655cm weaving width – and high-specialty materials, such as agrotextile, geotextile and carpet backing fabrics. When it comes to weaving tape yarns, the Itema projectile weaving machine provides the highest performance compared to all the other insertion technologies in the market.
To discover the Itema innovations for technical fabrics and the utmost Customers’ dedication, make sure to visit the Company booth at Techtextil India, H6-C109.
