Recently, chairman of Walter Reiners-Stiftung of VDMA Textile Machinery Association, Peter D Dornier, presented awards to 6 young engineers in Dresden, as part of Aachen-Dresden-Denkendorf International Textile conference. The works of awardees reflected strengths of German textile machinery construction in terms of high-quality applications & products.

Janina Elser, TU Chemnitz, Abdelrahman Elbayoumi, ITA Aachen and Hendrik Pötzsch, ITM Dresden, were honoured with creativity awards for the cleverest bachelor or project work. The prizes are endowed with €3,000 each.

Elser's bachelor thesis dealt with the prototypical development of circular knitted knee bandages. The subject of Elbayoumi's bachelor thesis is a feedback control system for an over-braiding process. Pötzsch's project work deals with the production of carbon fibres using solvent wet spinning technology.

Tim Kaluza, ITM Dresden and Julia Eckert, ITA Aachen, were awarded two promotion prizes in the category diploma/master thesis with prize money of €3,500 each. Kaluza's diploma thesis deals with the automated production of mesh-free multiaxial fabrics.

In her master thesis, Eckert developed an environmental assessment system for the production of jeans. 

This year, the promotion prize of the German Textile Machinery Industry in the dissertation category was awarded to Dr. Stefan Heinrich, TU Chemnitz. The prize is endowed with €5,000. The result is a fundamental work on gear requirements in textile machines, which will make a greater contribution in engineering practice.

Through its Walter Reiners-Stiftung (foundation), the VDMA Textile Machinery Association is actively involved in promoting young engineers. Every year, the foundation awards prizes for the best dissertation, diploma or master's thesis and creativity prizes for clever bachelor's and semester theses. Through financial support for university excursions to VDMA member companies and to the leading trade fair ITMA, it provides students with regular insights into practice.
