Additive manufacturing in the textile industry

13.05.2019 TITV-Workshop at KARL MAYER

The textile industry is one of the pioneers in use of new technologies and innovative products. Additive manufacturing has also recognized this and discovered the textile industry. The first individual designs and functionalisations of textiles by 3D printing are already successfully presented at trade fairs and events.

Following the great success last year, the second workshop will take place in Obertshausen on 13.05.2019 with the topic: ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING IN THE TEXTILE INDUSTRY.

This is what you can expect:

In the workshop ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING IN THE TEXTILE INDUSTRY, TITV Greiz and KARL MAYER will provide you answers and suggestions on the following questions:

  • Which techniques are available?
  • What results will be achieved?
  • Who are important providers and experience providers?

In addition to selected lectures u. a. from 3D printer manufacturers as well as from companies already using additive manufacturing processes, the workshop specifically promotes the exchange between the worlds of additive manufacturing and the textile industry.

The date on 13.05.2018 is one day before the Techtextil in Frankfurt starts and in this case it is an ideal addition to a visit of the Techtextil from 14.-17. May 2019 in Frankfurt.
