At the coming ITMA Asia + CITME in Shanghai, China, four TMAS (The Textile Machine Association of Sweden) members will showcase new innovations of Swedish machinery.

China has been and is an increasingly important market for the Swedish machinery producers. Not surprising, since the country is an important production hub in the world today. The dramatic technology drive shaping the Chinese textile industry is setting the agenda with automation and sustainability being the key drivers.

Swedish producers invest heavily in R&D especially because technological innovation is so inbuilt in the corporate culture of Swedish companies. At the show, visitors will see inbuilt intelligence and utilization of data for customized production developed to meet real customer needs.

TMAS members who are participating in the show:

IRO (H3 C01), a market leader that supply yarn feeders and accessories for the textile industry, will display its wide range of yarn feeding equipment, that are optimized 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 (H3 C10), a leading company in weft and yarn supervision, 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 enables immediate detection of any fault position. It also helps 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 (HS B14) will show its unique 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.

ES Automatex (H5 D04), a specialist in automated machines for the home textile industry, will introduce high performance automated systems with high reliability for home textile, bags or garments.

As Mikael Äremann, President, TMAS said: “We know and understand the Chinese market, and we realize 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.

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. 

TMAS initiates and coordinates joint activities, such as networking meetings and other events designed to provide export opportunities for the member companies. It consists of nine members, including: Eltex of Sweden AB, IRO AB, ACG Nyström AB, Texo AB, Svegea of Sweden AB, Kinna Automatic AB, ES Automatex, Solution AB, Eton Systems AB and Baldwin Jimek AB.
