The 2013 edition of the ITM exhibition in Istanbul has just ended.
Despite the proximity to the previous ITM exhibition in 2012, the visitors were numerous, reflecting the dynamism of the textile field in Turkey and the Middle East.
SUPERBA was present together with their representative SAMOTEKS on a large stand of 130m² where we were pleased to welcome our customers, visitors and friends. As for 2012 we had reserved part of our stand to our French colleagues from NSC Fiber-to-Yarn, whose representative is also SAMOTEKS.
Numerous joint projects between SUPERBA and NSC are in course for products carried out in acrylic (PAN) yarns, each company being the specialist in his field of activity : NSC for the fibre and SUPERBA for their high quality setting on new 60-end LV3 lines presenting an excellent output (up to 7 tons/day).
We have also welcomed many customers from Gaziantep to negotiate with them their future heat setting line extensions for carpet yarns with our latest TVP3 generation. The versatility of our TVP3 line is for them an asset since they can treat the whole group of different types of fibres, at any temperature as well as very thin yarns which are nowadays especially trendy in the carpet.
However we could also notice a growing interest for our artificial turf texturizing process brought by our new GTS « Greentex » line; indeed if the production capacities for heatsetting carpet yarns promise to continue to increase, even if most likely at a slower pace compared with the past two years, it also seems to be the beginning of the market saturation due to very numerous actors in the field. The industries of floor covering are therefore looking for diversification and differing products.
A great number of video demonstrations of our GTS line have been made to our customers and prospects eager to know the advantages of our patented technology. Shown for the first time during the ITMA in Barcelona in 2011, this line is today perfectly operational and certain customers have already developed new product qualities thanks to our GTS machine. In South America, our first customer has just received the FIFA certification to produce artificial turf for the football pitches.

The sales teams of both SUPERBA and SAMOTEKS warmly thank our customers and friends who visited our stand during this 2013 ITM Istanbul exhibition. The appointment is made for the next ITM in 2016 and in November 2013 in Istanbul for the DOMOTEX Middle-East exhibition.
