Groz-Beckert, the world's leading provider of industrial machine needles, precision parts, and fine tools as well as systems and services for the production and joining of textile fabrics, hosted an international textile machinery conference for around 160 international participants from top textile industry companies, on September 22, 2016.

As part of the event, Groz-Beckert presented their new study of global textile production. The work combines analyses and market data from the areas of yarn production and textile manufacturing, offering a holistic and unique insight into the textile industry.

After the welcoming address by Eric Schöller, member of the executive board of Groz-Beckert KG, the day started with a talk by Andreas Engelhardt, who presented extracts from his publication “The Fiber Year”, whose data was the basis for “The Fabric Year”. He was followed by Dr. Karl-Michael Schumann, Contarix GmbH, who gave a presentation about innovative products in the nonwoven industry. Then Jan Kettemann, Schlegel und Partner GmbH, spoke about the varied applications for textiles in cars.

Later, the topic of textiles in the automotive industry was revisited by Omar Cividini, Brembo S.p.A. His presentation was devoted to the use of textile fibres in braking systems. Dr. Monica Segata from Italcementi S.p.A. highlighted another innovative application of textile: The construction industry. Then a presentation by formerly long-time Nike Manager Linda Keppinger, from MaterialsMove, gave unique insights into the innovation process of large brands.

A talk by Andreas Engelhardt and Martin Weiler, market research at Groz-Beckert KG, presented data and analyses from “The Fabric Year” concluded the event. The analyses in the specialist publication combine a variety of data sources, such as textile machine quantities available in the market and production data of the fibre industry. (GK)
