French machinery manufacturers have been actively preparing ITM 2012 which is taking place in Istanbul, April 21-24.
They are used to come to ITM and, more generally, to Turkey which they consider a strategic market. Their latest regional collective action took place last October 2010 in Gaziantep (Turkey) and Alepo (Syria) where they organized two conferences, in Gaziantep mainly focused on the carpet industry which is so important in this fast growing city of Eastern Turkey.
For Evelyne CHOLET, the French Textile Machinery Manufacturers Association’s Secretary General, “next ITM will be a major opportunity to meet once more our customers, communicate, at the highest level, about their needs to compete successfully on the ever changing global market, to introduce must-have new products, to have highly reliable, low cost and eco-friendly processes”.
The collective, highly visible, actions are in addition to each company permanent organization, through local agents and offices.
Christian GUINET, President of the Association’s promotion commission and manager of STAÜBLI, says he is much impressed by the dynamism of the mostly family - run companies working for their long term future and that he will be personally very happy to have at ITM 2012 a new opportunity to meet such entrepreneurs.
It is important to remind that France is the 6th textile machinery exporter worldwide. Together the 35 manufacturers’ annual exports exceed 1 billion Euros (1.3 billion USD).
France is a main regional supplier of textile machinery, for example the 4th supplier for Turkey.
The web site is a hub for the French machinery manufacturers.

AESA Air Engineering

For any fiber AESA is supplying complete systems in order to maintain the adequate condition of temperature and humidity through over the year as well as clean environment in conformity with all standard for health and dust content. The overall energy saving is becoming a competitiveness factor, AESA air conditioning plants are contributing in a big way to this goal. For spinning factories, the state of the art is to drive all fans and pumps motors through inverters. For weavings, the latest development called WEAVE DIRECT is capable to reach up to 50 % energy savings. This is possible
thanks to a dedicated supply air ducting system where unique and localized WDB type diffusers are placed above each loom.
The DIGIVENT control system, with latest AESA logic is capable to have even more stable room condition between running and not running high speed machines.

Dollfus & Muller, the felts and belts manufacturer for more than 200 years, will present at ITM its textile finishing spare parts such as:

Dollfus & Muller will introduce at ITM 2012 its new compacting felt for knit finishing with major evolutions versus its existing products in order to serve better the dyeing houses. The new compacting felt quality brings a special care to the fabrics thanks to its smoothest surface, an excellent guiding and the best compacting rate in relations with the new exclusive compacting felt design.
Furthermore, Dollfus & Muller will display its durable printing dryer belts. In Turkey, already many printers of fine fabrics, scarves, flags are using the Dollfus & Muller printing dryer belts for their non marking surfaces which can avoid as well the particles on the back side.
Dollfus & Muller has the widest range of printing dryer belts and the strongest dryer belts.
The Dollfus & Muller sanforizing palmer felts are ideal for denim producers.

NSC Fibre to Yarn
"NSC fibre to yarn" continues to develop and propose TOW TO TOP lines with a new model S200 of stretch breaker followed by the Defelter rebreaker model D5GC30 and GC30 chain gill. As finisher m/c, the FMV41/42 vertical rubbing frame takes place.
Recently,"NSC fibre to yarn" has installed SEMI-WORSTED LINES with CA6 carding m/c model 225PP or B125PP (2.5 m or 3.5 m wide), supplied by Andritz Asselin Thibeau followed by preparation lines consisting of chain gills model GC 30 and finishers m/c model FMV41 / 42.
Even more recently,"NSC fibre to yarn" proposes to modernize recycling lines for acrylic fibres or blended ones by introducing its well-known combing m/c ERA between card and gills. The contribution of the combing m/c ERA is economically essential according to 4 points of view:
- Production: 1 ton per day in 3 deniers (3 shifts).
- Cleanliness: 25% of neps less compared with PB family m/c.
- Energy consummation: equipment with economic motors.
- Reduced consummation of spare parts owing to a new design of kinematic.
