STFI: From JEC World 2018 to Composite EUROPE 2018 - successful on trade fairs

In March, STFI presented itself successfully at the JEC World in Paris. Innovations in the areas of textile lightweight construction and fiber composites were the focus of attention. As a member of the Alliance Textile Lightweight Construction (ATL) at the Joint Booth of Saxony, STFI exhibited results of current research projects including e.g. 3D hybrid structures for multifunctional applications, the use of hemp binder for fiber composites as well as nonwovens and secondary rovings made from recycled carbon fibers.
Our booth was delighted with numerous visitors and informed experts about the core competencies and research priorities of the STFI. If you want to meet the STFI experts for textile lightweight construction - you can also mark the date of the trade fair COMPOSITE EUROPE (6-8 Nov) in your calendar where the STFI institute will be also present this year.

ITA RWTH Aachen: Image processing system allows high cost savings – ITA- and LfB-researcher win ICPRAM-Best Student Paper Award

January 16-18 2018, Madeira, Portugal. The researchers Marco Saggiomo, Institut für Textiltechnik (ITA), and Marcin Kopaczka, Institute of Imaging & Computer Vision of RWTH Aachen University (LfB), developed an image processing system for weaving machines that provides comprehensive benefits for woven fabric producers. It enables the weaving machine to detect faulty pickings autonomously and leads to cost savings of at least 2,210 euros p.a. for each weaving machine in comparison to manual faulty picking repairs.

The researchers won the “Best Student Paper Award” of the 7th International Conference on Pattern Recognition Applications/Methods (ICPRAM) for their joint paper on “Fully Automatic Faulty Weft Thread Detection using a Camera System and Feature-based Pattern Recognition”.
