Texprocess: 75% space already sold

The outlook for the première of Texprocess trade fair from 24 to 27 May 2011 is good. 75% of the ex­hibition space has already been sold, and the range of products for processing textile and other flexible materials is complete.Texprocess is where companies launch their innovations and high-tech solutions for the textile-processing industry. The exhibitors will include international market leaders from manufacturing nations renowned for their textile-processing technology, such as Germany, Italy, Japan, China, Korea and Taiwan. Registrations have recently been received from Korean embroidery and sewing machine manu­facturers Sunstar/SWF, Italian cutting and spreading machine producer Morgan Tecnica and Chinese sewing-machine manu­facturers New Jack and Zoje.

The Texprocess exhibitors will present innovations on trend themes such as automation, improved productivity and longevity, sus­tainability, traceability, energy efficiency and body scanning. In addition to the optimisation of processes and product flows, the focus will also be on new methods for making the complex textile value chain more transparent for the consumer, e.g., through RFID technology. One of the main themes will also be innovations for processing technical textiles.

At this point, the spectrum covered by Texprocess is perfectly sup­ple­mented by Techtextil, which will be held concurrently from 24 to 26 May 2011 and can be attended free of charge using the Texprocess admission ticket. The range of products to be seen at Techtextil runs from fibres and yarns, via nonwovens and coated textiles, to composites and adhesives, as well as functional textiles in the Avantex segment.
