Others call it “aftermarket,” we call it “peace of mind” for our Customers.
You invested in the latest and most innovative weaving machinery on the market by choosing Itema. You are producing some of the most imaginative and complex fabrics that your design teams are busy creating and, hopefully, your customers are busy ordering. If a part breaks unexpectedly, you want the fastest and most reliable support to get your looms back on track.
The first step to protect your weaving machinery equipment and investment is to choose strictly original spare parts. Our replacement parts, going back to the origins of our weaving machines and covering the full range of machinery from the early days of Somet, Vamatex, Sultex and now Itema, are designed for the perfect fit and optimum performance.
Thanks to our advanced, lean manufacturing capabilities, we can make-to-order quickly and efficiently using 100% latest-model, 5-axis CNC machinery deployed throughout our production sites. Stringent quality controls are carried out to check for any deviations or imperfections.
No matter how good an alternative may seem, it is, at best, reverse-engineered, but mostly approximated, fake, suboptimal, and most definitely not ideally matched with your weaving machine. Using original parts has proven to extend the lifetime and improve the performance of the equipment in your weaving plant.
Our sales and service representatives can discuss with you first-hand the advantages of choosing original parts, as well as the range of other options at hand to provide you the full support you may require.
Our OEM online shop, myItema, is an intuitive web-based ordering system that provides a simple, easy-to-use tool for our Customers to browse through our parts catalog, create a shopping list of parts required, and order parts directly. This system also provides the option to receive quotations and availability indications prior to placing an order, as well as the ability to track the order progress and status online.
Ordering your genuine spare parts online could not be easier. Once you log in, access the “Spare Parts Ordering” section, choose “Quotation” or “Order”, and the category “Itema Product” for SOMET – VAMATEX – ITEMA branded rapier and airjet machines or “Sulzer/Sultex Product” for SULZER – SULTEX branded machines and ITEMA projectile looms.
Search in myItema by part code, add from the machine catalog available online or import from an Excel file or a saved wishlist. Request your myItema account (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discover for yourself the full functionality of our Customer portal.
