Karl Mayer will host a workshop ‘Additive manufacturing for the textile industry’ on May 13, 2019, in Obertshausen, Germany. It will explore the opportunities for product development in the textile sector with the combination of new technologies such as 3D printing. Karl Mayer offers solutions for warp knitting, technical textiles, and warp preparation.

In its role as host, the cooperation partner Karl Mayer will make its premises available to the event. The organiser, the Textile Research Institute Thüringen-Vogtland e. V. (TITV), expects roughly 100 guests. Nine speakers from research and practice will highlight the topic of additive manufacturing in particular. In this respect, the company ViscoTec Pumpen- und Dosiertechnik will give a lecture on viscous media of the future, Heraeus Noblelight will present IR emitters, and DFKI will provide a contribution on the subject of additive manufacturing of modules and housings for electronic components on textile. Besides, Pedex will deliver a speech on materials for filaments for FFF-3D printing, Karl Mayer said in a media statement.

During the programme accompanying the event, Karl Mayer will present the new premises of its academy. The company’s own qualification site will only move to the new rooms in April 2019. Moreover, the visitors will have the chance to gain first insights into the manufacturer’s Textile Makerspace. An exhibition with offers from industry and research on additive manufacturing will round off this workshop. (GK)
