Itema established a solid reputation in the American market as a trustworthy partner thanks to its local team of skilled weaving technicians and textile experts.

Since 2000, Itema America’s team is on call to ensure a quick and personalized after-sales support to the wide base of Itema Customers in the region, offering electronic and mechanical services and repairs, timely spare parts deliveries and upgrade kits, as well as extensive training courses at its premises or at Customer mills.

As a historic partner and weaving machinery supplier of American technical textile manufacturers, Itema knows well that a highly specialized sector like that of technical textiles deserves specific focus and resources. Always attentive to its Customers’ needs, Itema set up Itematech with the aim to provide to technical fabrics producers a partner capable of satisfying their specific requirements by offering to its Customers cutting-edge technological innovations and customized solutions for technical fabrics and special applications.

Thanks to this forward-looking choice, Itematech offers nowadays the most comprehensive weaving machines portfolio to weave technical fabrics, ranging from Negative and Positive rapier, to Monorapier for carbon fiber and fancy styles, Airjet and the legendary Projectile.

Itematech representatives will be on site to present in detail two of the stars of the Itematech weaving machines portfolio:

  • Unirap, the Itematech Monorapier Weaving Machines, combines the advantages of a positive rapier weft insertion with the gentle yarns’ treatment ensured by the free flight transfer, enabling complex and creative fabrics weaving with practically no limitations and maximum textile efficiency. UniRap is declined in two main machine versions, both reciprocally and easily upgradeable: UniRap P—designed to weave complex technical fabrics such as flat yarns up to 30mm—and UniRap G—mostly employed to weave specific technical textiles such as metallic or non-metallic (from carbon fiber to aramid and fiberglass) single threads up to 2mm in diameter. Ranging from refined lamè to high tenacity monofilament yarns, passing through bouclé yarns up to carbon, polyester and polypropylene tape, UniRap provides the possibility to weave sophisticated technical fabrics as well as innovative fashion styles.
  • Hercules Negative and Positive Rapier Weaving Machine has been designed to excel in the weaving of technical textiles. One of a kind on the market, Hercules provides unbeatable textile flexibility thanks to its unique weft transfer system that enables the valuable possibility to easily and quickly switch from positive to negative rapiers, thus leading to unparalleled textile efficiency when handling the widest range of weft yarns counts, from 10 up to 48,000 dtex, in single or multiple weft insertions configurations.

Trustable, skilled and uniquely positioned in the market, Itematech is the ideal partner to identify the best weaving solution to weave the broadest range of technical textiles for applications such as Carpet Backing, Carbon Fibre, Heavy and Standard Coating Fabrics, Conveyor Belts and Filter Fabrics, Medical, Fiberglass, Agrotextile, Geotextile, Mesh Fabrics and many others.
