China has been and is an increasingly important market for the Swedish machinery producers, says TMAS, the Textile Machine Association of Sweden, which has nine members, each at the forefront of their own specific segment. The dramatic technology drive shaping the Chinese textiles industry is setting the agenda with automation and sustainability being the key drivers.

Swedish producers invest heavily in R&D. At the show attendees will see inbuilt intelligence and utilisation of data for customised production developed to meet real customer needs. “We know and understand the Chinese market, and we realise the trends for the future that will shape the Chinese textile and garment industry. We work in close collaboration with our customers and understand the market drivers. This enables us to constantly drive innovative breakthroughs in order for our customers to stay competitive,” said Mikael Äremann President, TMAS.

“Swedish machines always deliver groundbreaking technology that will allow the customers in China to be flexible and innovative in their solutions to their customers. Local production and assembly of machinery are other Swedish ways to improve the customer experience and increasing demand for customized solutions,” said Therese Premler-Andersson, Secretary General, TMAS. 

IRO will be displaying its wide range of yarn feeding equipment that is optimised to meet the demands of advanced modern weaving machinery. The feeders incorporate innovative energy efficient permanent magnet motor design and incorporate developments such as easy “plug and play” for connecting intelligent accessories and an improved threading-up system.

Eltex will have its new Eltex EyETM Yarn Tension Monitoring System on display. The system monitors the yarn tension on all positions in real-time and you are able to immediately detect any fault position. Eltex EyETM is designed to help increase the quality of warp beams. The result is fewer problems, not only when warping, but also in the next step when weaving or tufting. The system is suitable for applications such as warping, winding, etc.

Eton Systems will show its concept for material handling, developed to create efficiency, increase production and full traceability. The machines incorporate a real-time information system and the necessary tools to improve the manufacturing processes through powerful software programs.

Finally, ES Automatex delivers high-performance automated systems with high reliability, designed to meet specific customer requests.

“The Swedish companies are very excited to be participating in the ITMA Asia + CITME show.  The show is an excellent platform to view the latest technological developments. Furthermore, the show offers an excellent marketplace for making valuable business contacts with new partners and customers as well as strengthening existing ones. TMAS has been a part of the show in the past and we have been very happy with the results. We are certainly looking forward to this year’s show in Shanghai,” concluded TMAS.
