Denim Like No Other
The denim dedicated rapier R95002denim that, since market launch at ITM 2018 in Istanbul has become a real market success, will be at ITMA equipped with iSAVER™ – the Itemalab™ latest mechatronic marvel which completely eliminates the weft and warp waste on the left-hand side of the fabric. iSAVER™ represents the unique real and tangible innovation introduced in weaving since longtime. Establishing a new benchmark in sustainable weaving and guaranteeing a significant money saving, iSAVER™ is gathering an exceptional interest from worldwide denim weavers.
New innovative and cutting-edge solutions have been developed to further boost the R95002denim as the racehorse in its category and will be showcased during ITMA.
The Itema denim dedicated rapier machine, figures in hand, in real weaving conditions is the fastest on the market. At ITMA, the R95002denim comes with a further optimized weft transfer system that reflects what weavers always dreamed of: maximum speed and maximum reliability, together. The iBOOSTER package literally boosts machine’s performances, without compromising reliability. When running extremely fast, key rapier insertion system components are subject to considerable stress. Thanks to a deep materials study made by Itemalab, in close cooperation with Lamiflex, Itema succeeded in developing new reinforced tapes, sprocket wheels and micro smart coolers to ensure extended lifetime. Moreover, a revolutionary detection system through sensors and digital intelligence allows a real-time control of the components health status.
