The French machinery manufacturers group, which considers itself as part of the technical textiles industry, will welcome technical textiles and nonwovens producers at TECHTEXTIL (Frankfurt, May 24-26)

“We understand the unique needs of the technical textiles producers and the importance of providing them tailored solutions to address their specific requirements. Our main objectives are to help them design new marketable products and produce them in a safe and cost efficient way. That's why we encourage our members to attend TECHTEXTIl next May in Frankfurt” states Evelyne Cholet, Secretary General of the French Association of Textile Machinery Manufacturers (UCMTF).

French textile machinery manufacturers are often world leaders on their specialties. Their strategy is to offer tailor made solutions to solve customers' needs and be their long term
partners. This strategy is particularly fitted to the nonwovens and technical textiles sectors in which the machinery manufacturers are really integrated. This is how new markets for the technical textiles can be opened.

Thanks to this strategy, France is the 6th machinery exporter, particularly strong in weaving preparation, nonwovens, spinning, and finishing machinery. The total turnover is slightly over 1 billion Euros (1.3 billion US$), nearly all of it being exported all over the world.

These markets are complex and limited in size. They do not attract the new and large machinery manufacturers from such countries as China.

Not to work on technology innovations behind the closed doors of the machinery manufacturers' laboratories but very closely with the customers to understand their needs and offer them solutions is particularly important for the technical textile applications which require real partnerships to design the specific technologies to produce new marketable end products.

Since last TECHTEXTIL in 2009, UCMTF has been very active promoting energy savings and fighting to protect property rights.

The new machines can achieve energy savings through different solutions: fine tuning the machine to fit exactly the energy profile of the production process, finding new low energy processes for individual machines and optimizing the energy consumption of a whole production line. These approaches are not exclusive one from the other, they can be combined. In many real world examples, the energy savings are in the 30-40 % range, same or even more for the water consumption in dyeing and finishing.

“Protecting our intellectual property rights is also one of our top priorities” states Evelyne Cholet. UCMTF works closely with a global network of professionals.

Partners for the future Evelyne Cholet concludes “As a trade organization we can help complementary manufacturers to offer our customers a “single point of purchase”. More and more, the clients want to get a complete solution, shop for complete lines or even complete plants. We have understood this trend for several years and adapted our offer.
