ITEMA Will Be Displaying Denim- Dedicated Rapier Weaver Machine At DTG 2023

Published: February 15, 2023

ITEMA will display their R9500-2denim denim-specific rapier weaving machine. The weaving apparatus is a gift from Universal Denims Limited, a company based in Bangladesh that chose ITEMA as its reliable technological partner for the creation of high-quality denim fabrics. The equipment on exhibit at the event is a part of the recent installation of 99 Itema rapier R9500-2denim machines by Universal Denim at its plant.

One of the first sophisticated multi-storey integrated textile businesses in Bangladesh, Universal Denim was built to a LEED Platinum standard and has state-of-the-art facilities on 160 Bigha of land in Bhaluka, Mymensingh. Leading fashion designers and retailers around the world get more than 36 million yards of top-quality denim from Universal Denims Limited.

The R9500-2denim on display is outfitted with iSAVER®, a unique mechatronic device that mayEliminating the waste selvedge entirely on the left-hand side of the fabric would result in significant cost savings, less waste, and a more sustainably woven denim product. For Bangladeshi weavers who work daily with Western brands that are increasingly interested in a green and sustainable production chain for the fabrics they buy, iSAVER®—which has already been deployed successfully in several top denim mills worldwide—represents a really fascinating added value.

ITEMA believes that DTG is the ideal platform for letting Bangladeshi weavers gain first-hand experience with the company’s weaving solutions, which are well-known around the world for their high textile mastery, eco-efficiency, and usability.
