Texprocess to present 'Digital Textile Micro Factory'

Visitors to the upcoming Texprocess trade fair will see a ‘Digital Textile Micro Factory’, which will present a live demonstration of an integrated manufacturing chain for garments. The Micro Factory will demonstrate the entire networked production of items of clothing, from the design stage to digital printing, automatic cutting and fabrication.

Visitors will be able to get information from experts at each stage in the Micro Factory; while in addition, there will also be guided tours on offer.

The first stage in the Micro Factory is the CAD/Design area. With the help of computer-aided design (CAD) and the Vidya 3D-simulation software, creative designs are put into effect in a virtual reality and/or adapted.

Printing, the next stage demonstrates large-format inkjet printing, involving sublimation printing on polyester and pigment printing on cotton and mixed fibres. Manufacturing tasks can be flexibly combined here with various printing parameters so as to produce a print with reproducible colours.

Printing is followed by the cutting area in which, the individual orders first need to be identified without anyone touching them, made possible by automatically loading the appropriate data files for the cutting-out process.

A feeder system at the cutter ensures that the material is transported as smoothly as possible and without distortion. Camera systems recognise the cutting points, as a result of which the path the cutter is to take is optimised and a top-quality cut can be achieved.

In the next section of the production process, assembling, the cut-out elements of the various orders are also identified in a context-specific manner and added to the garment. This area shows the process of identifying the individual orders and the sewing process, carried out on the latest sewing machines, which can also be linked to the internet.

Labelling is the last step, in which garments will be provided with logos and graphic details that will be washable, can be ironed and are suitable for dryers. (AR)
