French Technology at ITMA ASIA + CITME
ITMA ASIA + CITME is an opportunity for the
Asian and particularly the Chinese textile industry to meet the
French textile machinery manufacturers. French machinery
manufacturers are world leaders in such fields as long fibre
spinning (wool, acrylic …), yarn twisting and control (including
technical yarns), space-dyeing, heat setting for carpet yarns,
carpet systems, dyeing and finishing, felts and belts for
finishing processes, nonwovens, air conditioning of textile
plants and recycling processes of textile materials.
Evelyne Cholet, their association
Secretary-General states: “When I travel across China I am
always astonished by the speed of the changes. For examples,
transportation is now so easy with the high-speed train system,
pollution is much less than it was, Chinese men and women are
looking for high quality and fashion whether in apparel or home
textile. These trends together with the rise of the salaries
make it a must for the textile industrialists to invest in the
best machines. These machines have to be productive, efficient,
reliable, energy and environment-friendly.
The machines our members will introduce in
Shanghai have all of these characteristics; moreover, the
services our members offer in China with their own subsidiaries,
service centres and with their local representatives are really
at the top.”
Here are some of the French exhibitors, an
easy way to know more about them is to go through the
association website www.ucmtf.com

NSC FIBRE TO YARN
(Hall 1 Stand D35)
NSC FIBRE TO YARN which includes N.
SCHLUMBERGER and SEYDEL trademarks will exhibit one drawing head
of the new model GC40 chain gill drawing machine for producing
of high-quality yarn in long staple fibres for combing,
recombing, spinning preparation and tow to top in polyester and
NSC FIBRE TO YARN will focus on
technological advances made to its product range: a new GC40
family drawing machines, the GN8 intersecting drawing machine,
the evolution of its ERA comber will be particularly unveiled to
the Chinese and international customers.
At ITMA ASIA 2018, NSC FIBRE TO YARN will
take the opportunity to introduce its service centre with its
genuine spare parts stock in Zhangjiagang, Jiangsu, China
LAROCHE (Hall 2
LAROCHE has been a major player in the
textile waste recycling and airlaid nonwoven field and is now
deeply involved in new technologies for turning post-consumer
goods into valuable products. Some recent examples include:
Special lines now can open used clothing
back into fibres whilst removing the metal and plastic
contaminants. The fibres can then be airlaid and thermobonded
into felts for the automotive, bedding and furniture industries.
Old mattresses can be deconstructed and the
foam can be shredded into chips, the textile portion can be
opened back into fibres and both can be airlaid and thermobonded
back into components for new mattresses.
With its large experience in Recycling and
Airlaid nonwoven processes, LAROCHE is up to the challenge of
preserving our world resources.
LAROCHE new AIRFELT with RESINFELT.
SUPERBA (Hall 3
SUPERBA, the member of the VANDEWIELE
family of companies, is active in machines for space dyeing and
heat setting for carpet yarns (PP, PES, PAN, WOOL & blends).
SUPERBA, present on the Chinese market
since 1992 has a subsidiary in Shanghai (SSRO) with sales &
technical Chinese people, as well as a stock of spare parts to
ensure a high level of service to local customers.
The Chinese market has shown a satisfying
level of activity since 2016 and the number of SUPERBA
heat-setting lines sold has increased accordingly, not only to
existing companies willing to extend their production capacity
but also to new prospects.
The Chinese carpet market is currently
focused on the use of polyester and polyamide fibres to
manufacture rugs; one of the current favourites is the tufted
printed carpet for the domestic market.
SUPERBA TVP3 heat-setting line offers the
highest pin-point definition with their saturated steam process.
The recent improvements in SUPERBA’s
space-dyeing technology, like bicolour printing, or dyeing
polyester yarn, are likely to arise great interest among the
Chinese manufacturers looking for innovative end-products.
FIL CONTROL (Hall
1 Stand D06)
FIL CONTROL has been developing and
producing electronic devices for both machinery manufacturers
(OEM) and textile industrialists. The company is active in four

belongs to Reyes Asia for the Asian market
At ITMA Asia 2018, FIL CONTROL recommends a
newly tension sensor MYT-T. MYT-T, a load cell sensor devoted to
assembling, winding and texturing operations: high count (400 to
10,000 DTex) and high tensioned yarn (up to 4,000g). The sensor
delivers an analogue signal proportional to yarn tension this
information will be used by machine controller to keep yarn
tension constant or stop the spindle if tension is out of normal
Engineering (Hall 1 Stand D14)
AESA offers air engineering solutions for
all textile production processes of natural fibres, man-made
fibres and filaments in their different stages: spinning,
knitting, weaving, hosiery, different types of nonwovens and
fibre productions, as well as dyeing and finishing.
Targeting a higher energy and environmental
efficiency customers are using AESA know-how and experience in
design and implementation of air conditioning plants for a
lighter environmental footprint with general production benefits
and cost savings.
The trend is continuing towards
implementation of fully inverter-controlled systems in spinning
and weaving factories, allowing optimized adjustment of energy
consumption to the actual needs.
Also, the well-known WEAVE DIRECT systems
offer substantial reductions in power consumption combined with
an accurate process condition on the weaving looms thanks to a
dedicated supply air ducting system with diffusers above each
AESA air conditioning.
The user-friendly and accurate DIGIVENT
control and monitoring system is communicating in interactive
screen functions and is allowing a wide usage of recorded data
for analysis, statistics and housekeeping.
These continuous steps provide a win-win
partnership based on AESA’s expertise in these special fields
for more than fifty years worldwide and lead the way for a
