“Automatization”, “Machine Learning” and “Big Data” are ever-present terms in these times of digital transformation. Every-day and work life alike are shaped by new technologies. The possibilities of “Industry 4.0” are also changing the production and processing of home textiles. The next edition of international trade show Heimtextil, which will take place from 7th to 10th January 2020, will highlight the chances the present and fundamental technological change offers the industry and the product developments that come with it.
“Textile Technologies” – that is the new name of the machinery area in hall 3.0. In the “Digital Print Technology” and “Textile Processing” areas, the home textile and healthcare and hospitality trade show’s expanded technology offer will include digital printing machines and software as well as textile processing machines. The next edition of Heimtextil will in particular expand the textile processing area with new exhibitors such as Demsan Tekstil Makine from Turkey, Joos sewing machines from the USA and Monti Antonio from Italy. German embroidery machine specialist ZSK Stickmaschinen is responding to the individualisation and personalisation trend by showcasing machines at Heimtextile that have more needles, thus allowing for a more effective workflow.
What will individual and responsible production look like in the future? How can humans and robots work together effectively? And how does “Big Data” become “Big Business”? These and other questions will be raised in lectures and expert discussions. The new “Textile Technology Talks” area, which will be located in close vicinity to the exhibition space, will offer valuable information about the latest technologies and product developments during all four days of the trade show. The expert centre “Textil Vernetzt” will invite visitors to a networking breakfast on 9th January that will be accompanied by keynote speeches from Bastian Baesch and Frederik Cloppenburg from German research associations Deutsche Institute für Textil- und Faserforschung (DITF) and Deutches Institute für Textiltechnik (ITA).
