Zimmer’s pioneering innovations and customer focus


Zimmer, a leading provider of customer-oriented solutions for textile and carpet printing systems, experienced a highly successful presence at ITMA Milan 2023. The event served as an excellent platform for the company to connect with both existing customers and forge valuable new contacts. While ITMA is meticulously planned, it is the spontaneous one-on-one discussions that truly shape the character of the trade fair and prove to be invaluable for Zimmer.

At Zimmer, the driving force behind the development of new machines and technologies is attentive listening. The team of specialists, well-versed in manufacturing businesses and industries, constantly rises to the challenges presented by the market and its regulations. Often, it is the philosophical discussions about the future of the industry that serve as the catalyst for new product ideas.

With a rich heritage spanning 150 years, Zimmer Austria proudly holds the position of world market leader in the construction of customer-oriented solutions for textile and carpet printing systems. The company’s wealth of experience, coupled with visionary thinking and a multidisciplinary team of developers, ensures that Zimmer’s technology remains not only up to date but also one step ahead of the market.

The overwhelming response and the bustling booths at ITMA Milan served as a testament to the significant interest in innovative solutions for carpet and textile production, along with a persistent focus on sustainability. Zimmer’s automated imaging, computer-controlled processes, and integration of artificial intelligence offer new horizons for the textile processing value chain. The introduction of the new COLARIS printer generation, featuring up to 16 color groups, stood out as a major highlight of the show. Equally noteworthy was the debut of the COLARIS-vision camera system, captivating visitors with its concept and vision. This advanced camera detection system serves as the foundation for piece goods production with web shop integration, enabling precise fitting of designs into a given structure despite challenges such as weft misalignment or fabric shrinkage. Such groundbreaking technology provides innovative solutions to long-standing challenges faced by textile producers, propelling the industry closer to full automation in textile printing.

Zimmer firmly believes that the supply and service of its equipment form a socio-technical system, where seamless collaboration between man and machine is necessary to meet the highest quality standards. Consequently, Zimmer places great emphasis on the expertise and support provided by its specialists in mechanical, electronic, hardware, and software departments.
