The Belgian Textile Machinery Association SYMATEX organizes a road show in India.

From February 28 to March 4 2011, a delegation of the Belgian textile machinery industry will meet key decision makers of the Indian Textile Industry. The roadshow will visit Ludhiana, New Delhi, Mumbai, Coimbatore and Bangalore. Some key Belgian companies participating in this roadshow are Bekaert, Bonas, Picanol and Van De Wiele. The Belgian delegation will interact with the Indian textile industry to select effective technologies that meet Indian industrial needs.

The Belgian textile technology industry will present its newest developments in the areas of flat and pile weaving technology, jacquard technology, weft feeders, finishing machinery, weaving accessories, textile inspection and control systems, textile industry automation, carding technology, extrusion and filtration technology. Belgian textile technology developers will also show the latest technologies for the production of clothing fabrics, interior textiles (upholstery, carpet …) and technical textiles.

Answers to Indian industrial needs
The participating Belgian companies will interact with the Indian textile industry to select effective technologies that meet Indian industrial needs. Belgian technology providers will support the Indian textile industry in the achievement of its strategic goals to reduce raw material waste, energy and water consumption and to increase competitiveness. Some key Belgian companies participating in this roadshow are Bekaert, Bonas, Picanol and Van De Wiele.

Belgian companies show strong track record
The Belgian machinery industry, including its textile machinery, is the fastest growing industrial sector measured by employment in Belgium. In the past 5 years an annual growth rate of 4.5% was achieved in this sector, while its world market share rose with 10%. An important driver for that performance was the doubling of investments in the mechatronics industry over the 1998-2007 period.

R&D and energy efficiency
To position its customers in the pole, the Belgian mechatronics industry is strongly R&D driven. It invests 7% of its added value on R&D and employs over 10% of the total Belgian research head count. The industry strongly accelerated its research efforts on energy efficiency in the past decade and has now achieved an average energy consumption reduction for its products of 15%. The long term strategy directs the Belgian mechatronics industry towards continuous strategic and open innovation in order to accelerate its product development rate and to provide its customers with leading edge technology. The Belgian mechatronics industry is the nation's 3th biggest exporter.
