Industry 4.0: Digital Textile Micro Factory at Texprocess, fully networked on-demand production presented live

Digital technologies, once embraced, bear the potential to act as game changers and offer completely new opportunities to companies.

In this context the GERMAN INSTITUTES OF TEXTILE AND FIBER RESEARCH DENKENDORF (DITF) presented on behalf of Frankfurt Fair the “Digital Textile Micro Factory” in collaboration with renowned partners at Texprocess trade fair.

Visitors could discover a fully networked and integrated factory from the design stage to digital printing, automated single ply cutting, assembling and finishing. Furthermore detailed information was provided from experts at each stage. The seamless digital networking of the production steps within the Micro Factory ensured optimal material consumption, quicker processing time for orders and the highest level of flexibility.

These responsive processes, following the paradigms of Industry 4.0, enabled on-demand production live at the trade show.

More sustainability in agriculture with Lenzing fibers

At Techtextil in Frankfurt from 9-12 May 2017, Lenzing presented for the very first time the botanic solution for agriculture featuring Lenzing fibers. 

The topic of plastic has top priority on the EU’s agenda, particularly in connection with the European measures regarding the circular economy. This generates a central starting point to optimize the life cycle of plastics and recycling.

With its innovations of TENCEL® branded lyocell fibers, Lenzing is offering a solution to avoid plastics. These fibers, made from the natural raw material of wood, are particularly well suited due to their fiber profile. If used, they reduce the use of plastics in agriculture.

ITA and mezzo-forte strike the right note 

The ITA and the company mezzo-forte Streichinstrumente, Werther, Germany, jointly developed together a decomposable double bass made out of carbon reinforced plastics whose neck and corpus can be dismantled through a junction made out of carbon reinforced plastics, too.

This leads to a big advantage in terms of transport: The decomposable double bass measures 1.10 metres in the length instead of 2 metres length in disassembled condition. Thereby the decomposable double bass can be carried by car and in standard luggage boxes.

The actual innovation is that both the junction and the double bass are made out of carbon reinforced plastics. Carbon reinforced plastics represent an ideal construction material for building a double bass because of its high rigidity and good mechanical characteristics.

Refibra - Lenzing's initiative to drive circular economy in the textile world 

Lenzing achieved another milestone in its innovation heritage in the textile industry by developing a new fiber based on cotton scraps and wood. Refibra™ is the first cellulose fiber featuring recycled material on a commercial scale. The fiber is produced in the TENCEL® production process. TENCEL®, already a market success as an eco-friendly fiber, is now achieving another key milestone by creating from natural resources what is likely the most sustainable fiber. Refibra™ from cotton scraps and wood will further build Lenzing's reputation as a leader in the field of environmental fiber technology and will push new solutions in the textile industry towards circular economy by recycling production waste.
