Technical woven and knitted fabrics

Processes, Technologies, Products

The department of technical woven and knitted fabrics provides a huge number of textile machines to demonstrate a variety of industry related textile manufacturing chains. In close cooperation with research and industrial partners we enhance existing and develop new techniques in the -field of woven and knitted fabrics. With the development of new material combinations, new manufacturing processes and corresponding test methods we are a competent partner for research and development.

auXteX – Auxetik im Textil

 

07/2019-12/2021

The aim of the auXteX project is to develop new types of construction with auxetic textile structures that have improved mechanical property profiles. The efficiency of lightweight constructions is to be increased as a result.

Objectives:

  • Development of new textile structures using the auxetic construction principle (characteristic of auxetic system behaviour: enlargement of cross-sections under tensile load),
  • Development of new types of construction with auxetic textile structures that have improved mechanical property profiles
  • Combination of auxetic textile structures and shape memory alloys
  • Possible applications of auxetic textile-based meta materials in the fields of concrete construction, timber construction and protective clothing
