A9500² Airjet weaving machine
Combining the highest speeds with perfect weft insertion and maximum components reliability is no longer a dream. The Second Generation of the Itema airjet weaving machines, the A9500² comes fully loaded with Itema’s premium innovations that set a new benchmark in airjet weaving.
The new main machine structure and the new pneumatic platform ensure optimal insertion cycle both from textile and performances point of view. In fact, the constant control of air load and pressure put the machine in condition to weave perfectly whilst reducing energy consumption.
Saving is also guaranteed by iREED®, the Itema patented reed tunnel shape and position of the relay nozzle which optimize the air flow in the reed channel for a higher efficiency weft insertion.
Dedicated and Itema patented sofwares contributes to further reduce the air consumption and the best-in-class shed geometry—real flagship of Itema—is here supported by innovative nozzles to ensure unmatched fabric quality and textile versatility.
Further core advancement implemented on the A9500² are the brand-new SKYFRAME heald frames designed by the Itema advanced innovation hub ItemaLab™. Itema A9500²: all you need, exactly when you need it, as much as you need it.
The whole machine structure has been revised, the air tank capacity has been increased to ensure superior textile performances even at the highest speeds. Optimal Weft Insertion at the Highest Speeds.
Itema proprietary technology. Thanks to a special design and to an innovative use of aluminium and carbon fiber, the Itema SKYFRAME ensures superior lightness and sturdiness. Combining the highest speeds with reliability and resistance.
2 Year Warranty
Redesigned and optimized to further improve the weft insertion, the new pneumatic platform allows a quicker system responsiveness when handling air load and pressure. Moreover, air tanks find now their place in specific cavities located in the main machine frame leading to no vibrations and to increased reliability. Optimal Weft Insertion Cycle Control.
The brand-new Bi-Power stretch nozzle ensures perfect weft catching pick by pick. Compact, powerful and cordless, the Bi-Power stretch nozzle allows air consumption reduction and increased fabric quality by keeping the weft perfectly straight in the fabric. Unmatched Fabric Quality and Textile Versatility.
Providing the perfect combination of long dwell sley movement and optimized position of the heald frames, the Itema Shed Geometry delivers the unsurpassed control of the fabric appearance while providing economic air consumption. Superior Textile Efficiency.
AND EASE OF USE
The A9500² features a lowered front frame to facilitate machine accessibility for the weaver when carrying out daily textile operations. Moreover, the new layout of the fabric formation area reduces style change downtime and enables easier maintenance operations. Improved Machine Accessibility.
The new reed tunnel shape in combination with the new single hole relay nozzles optimize the air flow in the reed channel for a more efficient weft insertion. The air consumption is lower up to 23% and the air pressure level required is reduced. Reduced Air Consumption.
The Itema patented RTC (Real Time Control) software comes here in a new advanced version. Featuring further improved functionalities, the iRTC ensures the optimal monitoring of the weft insertion cycle by automatically minimizing relay nozzles blowing time by independently setting the timing of each valve for the latest opening and the earliest closing. Reduced Air Consumption and Overruling of Incorrect Settings.
