Technical Textiles

In the run-up to Techtextil, taking place from June 21-24 in Frankfurt, nine exhibiting VDMA textile machinery division member companies presented their highlights for the technical textiles market, with an emphasis on sustainable production, in a special webinar held earlier this week (May 2nd).

“This year’s Techtextil is the first important exhibition and get-together for the textile industry in Europe since 2019,” said Dr Janpeter Horn, chairman of the VDMA textile machinery association and managing director of braiding machinery specialist Herzog. “The industry is currently faced with tremendous challenges in terms of the supply chain and logistics and there will be some reshoring as a result. Techtextil is a great place for us to discuss these issues, since we are very much part of the close textile chain that also includes researchers and the textile manufacturers themselves.”

More than 40 VDMA member companies will exhibit in Frankfurt, and the organisation will also have a group stand in Hall 12, underlining the importance of the fair. The companies taking part in the webinar represented the broad spectrum of process steps in technical textile manufacturing, beginning with filament and fibre spinning.
