STFI: With product innovations at Techtextil 2019

During the Techtextil fair 2019, from 14th to 17th May in Frankfurt, the Saxon Textile Research Institute (STFI) presents a variety of current research results and innovations in the field of technical textiles.
The highlight of this year's fair appearance will be a fully networked embroidery machine that demonstrates the benefits of digital transformation in the textile industry. Due to the networking of this machine and the use of assistance systems and smart sensor technology, customer-specific products can be manufactured quickly and adjustable. Visitors to our stand will have the opportunity to get a personalized finished textile made on site at our booth. In addition, exhibits on the latest research results from the fields of textile lightweight engineering, filtration as well as protective textiles will be shown.

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.
