RWTH: ITA won second prize of “International Théophile Legrand Textile Innovation Awards 2019

On 13 March, ITA researchers were awarded the second prize of the International Théophile Legrand Textile Innovation Awards 2019 in Paris. Richard Haas, Alexander Lüking and Dr Robert Brüll received the prize for the development of a novel coating technology for individual glass filaments in the spinning process for the production of a glass-thermoplastic fibre. This coating technology makes it possible for the first time to completely coat and impregnate individual glass filaments. The impregnation allows more fibres to fit into a component - this increases the fibre volume content and thus the strength of the finished component. Fully impregnated fibres are easier to process and thus promise shorter production cycle times.

DITF: Digital Textile Microfactory - Creating future production

After the success of the last Texprocess, the DITF Denkendorf with industry partners are again showing an online Digital Textile Microfactory. The new features of this fully networked production chain are three production lines: a clothing manufacturing line, a rapid prototyping line for 3D shape knitted shoe uppers and a technical textile processing line. Come by Hall 4.1 and experience how textiles are produced on demand. We are looking forward seeing you!

ITA: Smart Textiles Micro Factory brings Smart Textiles into series production for the first time at Texprocess 2019, Frankfurt/Main, Germany 

The study "Technologies, Markets and Players" by E-Textiles 2018-2028 predicts a 2 billion dollar growth of the mart textile market. This growth can only be achieved by replacing the existing approaches, mostly manual production, with series production. With the Smart Textiles Micro Factory, the Institut für Textiltechnik of RWTH Aachen University, short ITA, will be demonstrating for the first time on the Texprocess stand, stand number C02, in the transition from Halls 4.1 and 5.1 how a smart textile can be manufactured from design to finished product together with various partners by producing a smart cushion.
