ITMA Asia / CITME 2016

Review of a successful exhibition

Stäubli booth in the weaving hall

The most important trade fair for textile machinery in the Asian region took place from October 21 to 24 in Shanghai. Stäubli had two booths at this event, showing its broad range of state-of-the-art equipment and solutions for weaving and knitting mills that aim to stay at the forefront of the industry. This year’s show confirmed once again that this is a perfect opportunity for interesting discussions with customers and interested visitors.
The Stäubli booths gave an impressive overview of the company’s vast product range and made an unmistakable statement about Stäubli’s market presence, especially in terms of Jacquard machinery.  The large booth, with its modern design, provided a panoramic overview of the weaving hall, including numerous partner booths exhibiting weaving machines featuring Stäubli’s new SX, LX and LXL Jacquard machines.

Stäubli perfectly embraces the globally evolving theme “industry 4.0” by presenting innovative solutions that meet not only meet the demand for automation for upgraded qualities but real market needs as well. Here are just three examples of Stäubli solutions that are shaping the future of the industry:
• Weaving preparation solutions with automatic drawing-in machines for optimised workflows
• The revolutionary D4S sock-linking device, which mounts directly on the circular knitting machine, for faster production and perfect quality
• High-performance ALPHA carpet-weaving systems with centralised control station.

Stäubli would like to thank its many loyal customers and the great number of visitors received during ITMA Asia / CITME 2016. The popularity of our machines encourages us to continue our innovative research and development to serve the weaving and knitting industry as a leading worldwide partner.
