A new technology for dyeing yarns and a digitalised sewing machine that is set up via a touchscreen or app are among the four selected for Texprocess Innovation Awards at the Texprocess 2017 in Germany. The award is given in two categories - new technology and new process - on the basis of innovativeness, choice of materials and ecological quality.

The Texprocess Innovation Award 2017 is given in two categories. In the ‘new technology’ category, two companies convinced the judges with their developments: Coloreel from Sweden won with a technology that enables the white basic thread to be dyed during the embroidery process, which results in unique and colourful patterns. The Japanese company Juki was selected for launching DDL-9000C, the world’s first sewing machine for which, inter alia, thread tension and stitch length can be adjusted and stored via a touchscreen on the machine or via a special app. Also in this category, industrial-sewing machine specialist Xi’an Typical Europe was honoured for Vetron Trace, a new technology that permits pedal-less sewing. Sensors on the machine track hand movements and pass on the information to the machine in real-time.

In the ‘new process’ category, the Bielefeld-based Dürkopp Adler company won with an online monitoring system for industrial production. The parameters checked by the system include productivity and the status of up to 1,500 sewing machines in a network. The data is then supplied in real-time.

The jury of the 4th Texprocess Innovation Award comprised Alexander Artschwager, German Institute for Textile and Fibre Research, Denkendorf, Centre for Management Research (DITF-MR), Claudia van Bonn, Deutscher Fachverlag, Jürgen Brecht (chair), Marc Cain, Iris Schlomski, textile network, and Prof Kerstin Zöll, Lower Rhine University, Department of Textile and Garment Technology.

The Texprocess Innovation Award has been honouring outstanding achievements and new developments along the Texprocess product chain since 2011. (SV)
