Frankfurt Techtextil symposium and exhibiton
Each second year the International Techtextile symposium and exhibition takes place in Frankfurt on Main. This is one of the biggest International Trade Fair for technical textiles in Europe. The so-called Smart Textiles as Intelligent Clothing with integrated High-Tech Functions are, in the meantime, presented at the Avantex Innovation Forum.
Their focus is on the development of new textile machines and new textile processes. They do not do research in textile design or finishing or clothing technology.
Since several years the “Institut für Textiltechnik der RWTH Aachen” (ITA) develops production processes, products and testing methods in the field of medical textiles and biomaterials in close interdisciplinary cooperation with engineers, chemists, biologists and medical partners. Currently the research group “Medical Textiles/Biomaterials” at the ITA focuses on the optimisation of a drug release system using degradable nonwoven structures and micro spheres and the development of new textiles and implants with shape memory effect.
Procesing of high conductive yarns for signal tramsmission in smart textiles.
Application of shape memory material in medical textiles. The services provided by the company Textile Testing & Innovation, LLC. cover product testing, product development and consulting in reference to further development and application of the PCM-technology. http://www.textile-testing.com
