A. Monfort’s new Montex 6000 tenterItaly-based Savio Macchine Tessili S.p.A. (Hall 4, 408/A),
a member company of the ITEMA Group, will showcase its FlexiRotorS 3000 and the ORION E automatic
winder at ITM 2004.According to the company, FlexiRotorS 3000/Duo Spinner’s unique openend process
and fully independent machine fronts provide yarn and package quality as well as flexible
production planning capability. The machine offers total electronic control of spinning parameters,
which are programmable using the main machine’s keyboards. The patented electronic package building
feature uses an automated thread-guide movement, which customizes the final package according to
down-stream processes and requests. The high-density packages can reach 12 pounds (6 kilograms) on
coarse counts with a diameter of 320 millimeters. In addition, the machine’s spinning box can reach
a rotor speed of 150,000 revolutions per minute with a 250 meters-per-minute delivery speed.For
almost three generations, Savio has been represented by A. Modiano Ve Oglu in Turkey, where, the
company’s annual turnover has reached 70 million euros in the past three years.

Savio FlexirotorS 3000Italy-based SMIT Textile will be represented by Barok Tekstil (Hall 5,
502) at ITM 2004. On display at the company’s booth will be one G6300 F and two GS900 weaving
machines.Designed to produce a wide variety of terry fabrics, the G6300 F has seven different
weaving widths ranging from 220 to 360 centimeters (cm) and it is ideal for multi-panel weaving of
terry towels. The programmable formation and height of the pile by dynamic sley control ensures
quality in terry patterning. The ground and pile warps have electronically controlled warp let-off
systems that ensure uniform pile weight and height from the full to the empty warp beam. The
electronically controlled cloth take-up guarantees exact weft densities and faultless transition
between pile and border.The modular GS900 is the next generation of the G6300. Its 11 weaving
widths, which range from 170 cm to 360 cm, allow for a wide range of configurations. According to
SMIT, the machine is designed to minimize the stress on the weft and warp yarns by its optimized
textile parameters.In addition, Bonas will also be displaying a SMIT G6300 F at its booth (Hall 5,
