The renowned operator of Italian wool mills Lanificio Cerruti, has selected Itema as weaving supplier for 30 new weaving machines. The machines are set to increase the production capacity and the overall manufacturing efficiency, but first and foremost they will contribute to further enhancing fabric quality and processes sustainability.
The Itema rapier R9500² weaving machine ensures to Lanificio F.lli Cerruti, Biella/Italy, very high sustainability levels in 3 different areas: environmental, as it is designed to reduce energy consumption and waste of raw materials; social, thanks to the ergonomic features that simplify and protect weavers; and economic, due to the gentle treatment of the yarns which leads to raw materials saving and quality improvement. Furthermore, the remote monitoring allows interruptions and failures to be minimized.
With this agreement Lanificio Cerruti and Itema SpA, Colzate/Italy, start a cooperation based on the common orientation towards an increasingly sustainable innovation, meant to generate value while respecting the environment and people.
The new Itema weaving machines will be installed in the Biella plant of Lanificio Cerruti starting from March 2022.
