At viscom 2019 all renowned suppliers of embroidery machines and materials will be exhibiting their equipment, technologies and consumables. Right next door the new PromoTex Expo show will present innovations in advertising textiles, job fashion and sportswear. This way textile finishers and signmakers have an overview of what is happening on the markets of relevance.
Yarn dyeing during embroidery
Visitors of viscom can witness how yarns are dyed during the embroidery process. The mastermind behind this globally unique process is Swedish development company Coloreel. Until now only a limited number of colours could be used in embroidery depending on the number of needles of the machine. In the future a single white yarn is said to suffice. This process will be demonstrated live by the German distribution partner Barudan Stickmaschinen GmbH using the machinery of Japanese manufacturer Barudan.
New series of machines
Specialist dealer Deratex from Neuss will be showcasing the new X-Stitch series of machines and Stickmaschinen Center Köln will bring the new machines of the EmbroStar and BlueLine brands. Embroidery machines “Made in Germany” will be exhibited by Heinz Walz GmbH, demonstrating the embroidery systems of ZSK Stickmaschinen. The equipment of Tajima will be exhibited by the German specialist dealer Mountek. Here textile finishers and signmakers will also be provided with insights into working with Pulse embroidery software.
The systems manufactured by Happy will be demonstrated by Hoko while CCS brings Ricoma equipment to the trade show. These embroidery-centred ranges are complemented by yarn producer Madeira, embroidery data generation services by DigitisingMart as well as Interstitch’s embroidery design library.
Melco has its own stand but is also present with a single-head embroidery machine at the live signmaking workshop viscom Werkstatt. In this special exhibition area visitors can see how experienced digital printers and signmakers design a fan shop for signmaking with real fan items that are finished/personalised on site. Visitors can also purchase some of them. The revenue generated goes to a charitable cause.
