Young ITM Junior Scientist wins Bertha Benz Award 2017 

On June 1st, 2017, Dr.-Ing. Cornelia Sennewald of the Institute of Textile Machinery and High Performance Material Technology (ITM) of the TU Dresden received the Bertha Benz Award 2017 for the development of an innovative method for the production of metal 3D structures on weaving machines.
In her dissertation research regarding the “Generative structure, technology and weaving machine development for unique cellular 3D structures in lightweight construction designs” at Technische Universität Dresden, Dr. Sennewald developed an innovative method to produce these complex 3D structures on widely available weaving machines.

In these significantly lighter and more stable metal structures, wires are interwoven to creating high-strength connection at minimum material consumption.
The award is granted annually by the Daimler and Benz Foundation to one outstanding doctorate of a young, female German engineer. The award includes a prize money of 10,000 euros.

Knitting 4.0: Baden-Württemberg's Knitting Cluster, an example of future textile production 

Baden-Württemberg plays an important role in the international knitting sector. Innovative and successful equipment provider, textile producers and end-users cover the whole value-added-chain from engineering of sophisticated textile machinery to the manufacturing of high fashion and functional products.

DITF conducted and presented a study (financed by the industry association Südwesttextil and the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Housing of the State of Baden-Württemberg) detailing the specific challenges and potentials of Industry 4.0 for this knitting industry cluster. The study comprises the strategic framework conditions for digital transformation, innovative development paths and ten key action areas for the cluster on its way to Industry 4.0. Particular attention is put to cross-sectorial aspects and to fast-changing (information) technologies.
