Taiwanese firms to show smart textiles at Computex 2017
May '17
Six member companies of the Taiwan Smart Textiles Alliance will showcase a variety of smart textile products at a special pavilion at the Computex Taipei 2017, scheduled from May 30-June 3. Co-organised by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and Taipei Computer Association (TCA), Computex Taipei is the leading global ICT and IoT show.

The six companies displaying their products at the fair are Everest Textile, Nine Million Tech, AiQ/Tex-Ray Industrial, Maxtek Go-Go, Ruentex and Sunstar Taiwan. These companies will exhibit interactive textile fabrics and other smart textiles embedded with electronics components at the show. They will also showcase power-saving wireless physical sensing transmission modules at the five-day exhibition.

The Taiwan Smart Textiles Alliance was formed in June 2016 with the help of Taiwan Textile Research Institute (TTRI). It brings together manufacturers as well as government and academic research units to develop innovative products, set up industrial standards and explore markets, according to TTRI. 

The Alliance now comprises around 40 companies from various industrial segments, including raw material suppliers, textile manufacturers, designers, electronics and systems suppliers, marketing channels and accreditation organisations.

In order to further develop smart textiles in Taiwan, the Alliance is working with other industrial bodies like the Taiwan Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers Association. It is also collaborating with accreditation institutes to frame relevant accreditation regulations and criteria. (RKS)
