Itema exhibits best-in-class weaving innovations and corporate updates at ITMACH INDIA December 5 – 8, 2019 Booth C1
PRESS RELEASE – 18/11/2019
Colzate (Italy) and Ahmedabad (India) – Itema, the global leading provider of best-in-class weaving solutions, including weaving machines, OEM spare parts and integrated services, is exhibiting at ITMACH India (Booth C1) from December 5th – 8th at The Exhibition Centre in Ahmedabad.
Itema in India
India represents one of the most interesting textile industries in the world, featuring numerous textile districts throughout the country and producing a wide range of woven fabrics. Over the years, the evolution of Indian weaving mills has been remarkable, due to the increasing introduction of the most modern and advanced weaving machinery and the ability to produce ever-more sophisticated fabrics, including technical textiles.
Itema is a trusted partner of many Indian weaving mills, from large textile conglomerates to smaller textile manufacturers, providing the most advanced and user-friendly weaving technology and real-time assistance, from the initial negotiation stage and throughout the whole machine life cycle.
Itema is present in India with a fully-operational branch 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 range of services to its valuable Customers in the Indian market.
The Italian based Company is participating at ITMACH in Ahmedabad since the event constitutes a valuable opportunity to showcase the Itema weaving innovations and the company latest updates to the renowned Gujarat textile industry.
Gujarat is, in fact, one of the largest textile Regions in India with several textile manufacturing companies and with the biggest cotton production in the country.
Itema Weaving Innovations
From the weaving technology point of view, the Itema team will deeply illustrate to ITMACH visitors the latest novelties and advancements implemented by the company.
In particular, on the airjet weft insertion side – which is the most diffused weaving technology in the Region – Itema launched on the market during ITMA 2019 in Barcelona the Second Generation of its airjet model, the A9500-2.
The A9500-2, the Second Generation of the Itema airjet A9500 and A9500p, sums up all the best features of its predecessors and further enhances machine performances, cost savings and textile efficiency. Main machine innovations are:
- New and optimized pneumatic platform: the weft insertion cycle is significantly improved leading to a quicker system response when handling air load and pressure, thus guaranteeing minimized vibrations and higher structural reliability
- Revised machine structure to increase the air tank capacity ensuring superior textile performances even at the highest speeds
- The brand-new Bi-Power stretch nozzle which ensures perfect weft catching pick by pick, air consumption reduction and increased fabric quality by keeping the weft perfectly straight in the fabric
- The brand-new heald frames SKYFRAME – Itema exclusive proprietary technology – made of aluminium and carbon and designed by Itemalab™ in cooperation with Lamiflex, thanks to the superior lightness and sturdiness, allow to run at the highest speeds without compromising reliability and resistance
Gujarat Region is famous for the high concentration of denim weaving mills, and Itema provides specific and unique-in-the-industry features to weave denim on its airjet machine.
The popular recent trend to weave stretch and super stretch denim fabrics with dedicated weft yarns inspired Itema to create and patent the innovative BLC – Brush Lycra Clamp – nozzle to weave elastic weft yarns. Thanks to the BLC nozzle, the weft is held without movable parts to ensure superior fabric quality and reliability. The device is simple and yet ingenious: the BLC is fixed into the main nozzle performing the valuable task of keeping the elastic weft yarn avoiding defects due to the continuous air flow.
The Itema iREED® – developed by Itema in cooperation with Schoch (an Itema Group company starting from October 2019) – is considered as the benchmark by the industry and significantly reduces the air consumption whilst guaranteeing a higher efficient weft insertion. The new reed tunnel shape and new position of the relay nozzle optimize the air flow in the reed channel for a higher efficiency weft insertion. The saving is also due to a reduced air pressure and to the single hole relay nozzle, which, at the same time, greatly reduces the need for maintenance of your Itema airjet weaving machine.
The Itema A9500-2, featuring these advanced innovations, ensures the weaver the possibility to weave faster, producing better fabrics and with a smarter usage of resources.
On the rapier side, Itema is nowadays leading the denim market production on rapier weaving technology thanks to the prowess of its R9500-2denim. Unique in the industry, the R9500-2denim is equipped with:
- iSAVER™ – the Itemalab™ 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 thanks to a reduction of raw material wastage and guaranteeing a significant money saving, iSAVER™ is gathering an exceptional interest from worldwide denim weavers and is already successfully running in some of the most famous denim mills
- The denim-dedicated SK UltraLight Weft Transfer System that, thanks to reduced dimensions and lightweight rapiers and to the TLC-Triple Layer Carbon tape, ensures maximum textile efficiency and extended components lifetime
- iBOOSTER package, designed to literally boost 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 dete
ction system through sensors and digital intelligence allows a real-time control of the components health status
Many more weaving solutions – both on airjet and rapier technology and covering the whole range of fabrics – will be deeply discussed by our team during the exhibition days.
Itema acquisition of Schoch
Moreover, ITMACH will be the first formal platform to introduce to the Indian textile industry stakeholders the new partnership between Itema and Schoch, the leading producer of reeds and accessories for textile looms headquartered in Italy and in India, of which Itema recently acquired majority stakes.
Following to the acquisition of majority stakes in Lamiflex completed in 2017 and the recent agreement reached with PTMT (ex Panter) finalized to the establishment of Itematech – the Itema Technical Textiles Division, the agreement signed with Schoch group represents a further significant step for the synergic development of key weaving machine’s accessories as well as a remarkable reinforcement of Schoch commercial network.

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.

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.

Itema Group Lança Estratégia de Diversificação; Adquire participação maioritária na Lamiflex e participação minoritária na NoeCha
PRESS RELEASE – 08/05/2017
Maio 2017 (Colzate, Bergamo, Itália): Itema, maior fornecedora privada de soluções avançadas de tecelagem do mundo, incluindo os melhores teares da classe, peças acessórias e serviços integrados, concluiu os acordos para adquirir 61% das ações da Lamiflex, fornecedor líder de produtos compostos técnicos e uma participação minoritária na NoeCha, fornecedora de soluções de impressão de alta tecnologia e de grande formato. As aquisições fazem parte de uma estratégia mais ampla da Itema e dos seus acionistas, nomeadamente a família Radici com 60% das ações e as famílias Arizzi e Torri, com os restantes 40%, para acelerar a expansão contínua e garantir a rentabilidade a longo prazo do Itema através da diversificação em mercados complementares de elevado crescimento e através de participações em empresas orientadas para a inovação que oferecem economias de escala significativas para promover o desenvolvimento conjunto dos negócios principais de cada um.
„Após um notável período de cinco anos em que o Grupo Itema duplicou as vendas de seus teares com crescimento consecutivo de dois dígitos por ano, a Companhia está agora pronta para fortalecer sua liderança, acelerar o ritmo de sua expansão para acelerar seu alcance global através das aquisições direcionadas”, disse Carlo Rogora, CEO do Grupo Itema. “Escolhemos a Lamiflex e a NoeCha devido às suas missões avançadas e abordagens inovadoras, que combinam perfeitamente com a nossa dedicação para fornecer máquinas de alto desempenho e avançadas. Combinando nossos pontos fortes, sem dúvida alcançaremos novos patamares de sucesso no desenvolvimento e fabricação de produtos inovadores e altamente tecnológicos. A Itema garantirá aos clientes da Lamiflex e da NoeCha uma organização estruturada, baseada em conceitos de produção Lean nos seus locais de produção de classe mundial e numa rede global de agentes e distribuidores”, continuou Rogora. “Estamos confiantes de que esta primeira rodada de aquisições atuará como um lançamento importante para a nossa estratégia de diversificação e trará resultados positivos no futuro próximo, criando sinergias significativas e agregando valor para nossos clientes e acionistas.
Com sede em Ponte Nossa, província de Bérgamo, a Lamiflex é especializada em materiais compósitos, como carbono, vidro e Kevlar, oferecendo um portfólio de soluções inovadoras e novos produtos patenteados com excecional versatilidade e adaptabilidade para aplicações industriais, atendendo a indústrias tão variadas como a tecelagem, medicina e aeroespacial, entre outros.
A NoeCha, também com sede em Bergamo, é uma empresa jovem de rápida expansão que oferece soluções de impressão de alta tecnologia, como a revolucionária prensa digital plana UV-LED industrial, a NoeCha ONE, para aplicações foto realistas de alto impacto gráfico. NoeCha garante excelente capacidade de impressão em diferentes tipos e tamanhos de material até 3.2x2meters em velocidades de produção com uma resolução de imagem nativa de resolução 600dpi x 600dpi.
O movimento do Grupo Itema tem por objetivo criar e estimular sinergias significativas ao longo das respetivas cadeias de abastecimento em que a Itema, a Lamiflex e a NoeCha, bem como as empresas RadiciGroup operam e crescem não só no sector das máquinas têxteis, mas também na expansão em novos setores, como os compósitos, e assim, em conjunto, ser muito mais competitivos do que de outra forma individual. Estas aquisições permitirão otimizar os processos e melhorar o desempenho dos produtos, bem como proporcionar vantagens derivadas de uma cadeia de abastecimento mais curta e sustentável, diminuindo o impacto ambiental das operações conjuntas, de acordo com os princípios de uma economia circular e mais ecológica.
