Von der Idee zum Transfer

Chemical Analytics/




The aim of our basic and application-oriented research activities is the realisation of special functionalities of technical textiles. We mainly achieve this through the alteration or modification of surfaces or through combination of different textiles by coating, finishing, printing or lamination.

To support the textile industry with solutions to future challenges we focus on finding suitable materials and technical processes in order to realise products with certain (surface) properties: We therefore consider the influence of material structure itself as well as the multiple possibilities gained by combining different materials or functionalities. We try to establish energy- and resource-efficient procedures and to find ways to minimize the amounts of harmful substances in products and manufacturing processes.

Through close cooperation with industry, our joint ideas lead to customized product innovations that can be quickly established on the market.

Das Ziel dieses F&E-Vorhabens ist es, eine digital ansteuerbare flexible Ausrüstungstechnologie auf Basis von digitalen Verfahren aus der Druck- und Beschichtungsindustrie für die effiziente vollflächige und geometriegesteuerte Ausrüstung von textilen Flächen zu entwickeln. Mit Hilfe dieser Technologie wird es möglich sein mit Ressourcen rücksichtsvoller umzugehen, Umrüstaufwände an Ausrüstungsmaschinen zu reduzieren und kontaktlos Ausrüstungschemikalien präzise auf das Textil aufzubringen. Ein erster Maschinenprototyp wurde auf der ITMA 2019 in Barcelona vom Projektpartner Suchy Textilmaschinenbau GmbH vorgestellt.
