The conference on additive manufacturing for the textile industry by Karl Mayer, has concluded successfully. As many as 100 specialists from a range of sectors including textiles, automotive, sports, medical, science and research, discussed about innovation drivers of the textile industry by focusing on innovative and efficient manufacturing.

The event was held in association with Textile Research Institute Thüringen-Vogtland (TITV).

"We want to create the exchange between the two worlds, namely between the additive manufacture as a young discipline of production and the textile sector as an industrial branch with a long tradition," said Karl Mayer product manager, Michael Kieren.

"I am very surprised by the high response to our conference and by the wide range of different areas from which our guests come. Both aspects show the importance of this topic, and the significance of events of this kind," said Arno Gärtner, Karl Mayer CEO.

"I think it’s great that so many people have come , and that so many different discussions arise, especially in view of the high event density at the beginning of the year. The contributions with real topics but also the size and mix of the audience encourage a successful exchange," said Dr Uwe Möhring, managing director of TITV.

The conference also included lectures held by 3D-printer manufacturers as well as by companies that have already been working with additive manufacturing methods. Two experts presented first combinations of textile and 3D-print. Tatcraft from Frankfurt with Maker Space presented its capacities for 3D-print, wood working, water jet cutting and other technologies to experiment and explore different possibilities without major investments.
