Terrot exhibits machine model I3P 196 open width frame as well as its latest innovations at ITMA 2023
For Terrot, the current fiscal year 2023 has not been an easy one so far. In addition to the generally poor economic situation, the company reports natural disasters, political uncertainties, as well as its own shortcomings, such as excessive payment delays, various major project postponements, crashes of the main production machine at its plant, to name a few, all of which have posed a serious threat to the company's existence.
Therefore, the company is even more pleased to be able to come to ITMA and show latest developments with the great support of their customers, suppliers, employees and brave agents....
Despite all the obstacles, they have continued to push forward with their latest developments that were to premiere at ITMA and the many projects that are designed to make the company more efficient, modernize and prepare for the needs of the future. New developments in the single and double jersey sector, consisting of highly efficient premium machines with outstanding performance, maintenance and operating cost KPIs, as well as general improvements to existing equipment have been realized in recent months.
Together with its partner SMARTEX Terrot welcome visitors in hall 4 booth E104.
At ITMA they will display one of their blockbuster machines: A highly flexible and productive I3P 196 “8-lock“, interlock and fine rib machine with open width frame that has been much demanded above all in Turkey in the past years. After having become the standard for interlock with many of the reputable clients it is about to become also a success story in many other markets around the world.
The I3P 196 creates “8-lock“, interlock and modified structures like punto di roma, milano rib, piqué rodier and also racer mesh with maximum efficiency. Equipped with up to 4 needle tracks in cylinder cam and 2 needle tracks in dial cam the I3P 196 promises maximum flexibility and a wide range of pattern options.
This year Terrot will be teaming up in its booth with its partner Smartex Europe, who provide among others a state-of-the-art AI driven error detection system that premieres in the double jersey space. The Smartex CORE system build-in on the exhibition machine gives the customer the power of latest hardware and software technology?to control their fabric production, inspecting every inch of fabric using artificial intelli- gence algorithms, which are constantly being upgraded. Smartex’s patented hardware set is comprised of an AI-powered graphic processing server, high resolution cameras with machine learning capabilities, and enhanced lighting for optimal greige fabric inspection controlled by an intuitive industrial-grade touchscreen interface. Smartex’s software provides the customer with 24/7 access to real-time production information including automated roll maps, business intelligence data, and performance analysis from anywhere, using their preferred device (computer, tablet, smartphone).
