Van de Wiele, manufacturer of carpet and velvet weaving machines, electronic jacquards, feeders, controllers, finishing machinery, extrusion and tufting machines, and equipment manufacturers, is set to show new textilemachines at ITM 2018 textile machinery expo, which will be held from April 14 to 17, 2018, in Istanbul, Turkey, in hall 2, stand 212-A.
The company will present the three metre execution of the Velvet Smart Innovator VSi for plain and jacquard velvets. The main specs of the machine include parallel reed motion, reinforced cross members, single beams over the full width and up to 24 servo driven smart frames.
The new showpiece in carpet weaving, the “HCiX2”, will also be displayed at the expo. This high density carpet weaving machine, available in three and four meters width, is able to weave carpets with up to 5 million points per square metre, creating niche high-end products.
The company will show the Colortec Cobble tufting machine. An important development for the Cobble tufting machines is the Individual Pile Delivery (IPD) on Colortec, giving a better pile surface of the tufted carpet, resulting in less yarn consumption. The Colortec, in combination with the in-house developed software TuftLink, can produce carpet with multiple density and colour gradients.
BONAS, trendsetter in jacquard weaving, will be present at ITM. The Si range, known as trailblazer in jacquard weaving due to the most compact design, lightweight, low energy consumption and high efficiency is now available up to 31.104 hooks in a single jacquard machine. The Ji range, already nested in many countries worldwide, is the ideal jacquard technology for the Turkish market.
Superba, world leader in heat-setting and space-dyeing for carpet yarn, will be a part of the expo. With more than 150 TVP3 lines to heat-set carpet yarn and over 60 LV3 lines for Acrylic running in Turkey, Superba have established themselves as the benchmark in terms of quality for carpet yarn processing for all types of yarns (PET, PP, PA, PAN, wool, and blends).
