VDMA textile forums in US & Mexico end successfully
The VDMA Textile Machinery Association has successfully hosted events for the textile industries in the US and Mexico. The textile machinery conference in Charlotte, US was held on November 6, 2017. A two day event was consequently held on November 8 and 9, 2017, in Mexico City. The Mechanical Engineering Industry Association is headquartered in Germany.

More than 80 decision-makers of the US textile, nonwoven and carpet industry as well as 25 leading textile machinery and accessories manufacturers participated in the US conference. The event in Mexico City attracted nearly 450 customers and 30 textile machinery and accessories manufacturers, making it one of the most successful events of the VDMA Textile Machinery Association ever.

The conference in Mexico City was addressed by José Cohen Sitton, president of the National Chamber of the Textile Industry Canaintex. Where these two events focused on customers, the training session at the Instituto Politécnico Nacional (Escuela Superior de Ingeniería Textil) in Mexico City on November 10, 2017 aimed at future engineers. About 500 textile engineering students followed the technical presentations from 18 textile machinery and components manufacturers.

The company delegates also visited the machinery department of the faculty. The VDMA’s contribution to improve the education of future customers was very much appreciated.

In the US and Mexico, the VDMA member companies presented their latest production technologies from spinning to dyeing and finishing. Major topics addressed were digitalisation of the textile and textile machinery industry (Industrie 4.0 / industrial internet), higher efficiency and profitability, energy, water and material savings, new applications with growth potential, such as composites and nonwovens, higher quality with measurement, control and testing devices, technical training centres.
