Italian textile machinery exhibits at the Techtextil fair for technical and innovative textiles
MILAN — April 22, 2022 — The next edition of Techtextil, an exhibition for the technical and innovative textile sector, will take place in Frankfurt from June 21 to 24, 2022. The return of Italian textile machinery manufacturers to such an important exhibition after the last edition in 2019 will see them again in the spotlight. The Covid-19 pandemic has increased the demand for specialty textiles, especially in the medical equipment and personal protective equipment sectors. Thus, in 2021, Italian manufacturers of textile machinery recorded growth in sales for the sector. Exports of machinery for the production of nonwovens increased by 76% in 2019 and 85% in 2020.
As in previous editions, Italian Trade Agency and ACIMIT, the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers, organize an exhibition area reserved for textile machinery manufacturers. 29 companies are exhibiting in the Italian pavilion. Among these, the following are associated with ACIMIT: 4M Plants, A. Piovan, Aeris, Beschi, Bombi, Bonino, Color Service, Corino, Cubotex, Fadis, Ferraro, Gualchieri e Gualchieri, Kairos Engineering, Lawer, Loptex, MCS , Mesdan, Monti-Mac, Noseda, Salvadè, Sariel, Srs, Stalam, Testa, Toscana Spazzole, Zappa. Other ACIMIT member companies exhibit with their own stands outside the Italian pavilion.
“Techtextil has always been a show that Italian manufacturers watch with particular interest,” commented Alessandro Zucchi, president of ACIMIT. The versatility of the Italian technological offer allows, in fact, to use the Made in Italy machines in different fields of application of technical textiles, responding to the different demands of the many visitors present at the event”.
In the 2022 edition, Techtextil will focus on sustainability, which is another strong point of Italian textile machinery. “Italian manufacturers have been committed for years to designing machines that are sustainable, both from an environmental and economic point of view,” says Zucchi. Savings in raw materials, energy and chemicals are the basis of the ACIMIT Sustainable Technologies project, and the green label, boasted by a growing number of Italian textile machinery manufacturers, certifies the commitment of the Italian sector to contribute to the sustainability of the textile supply chain”.
