The second workshop entitled Additive manufacturing for the textile industry will be held at Karl Mayer’s headquarters, in Obertshausen, on 13 May.

The combination of new technologies, such as 3D printing, and the traditional textile sector opens up many opportunities for product development. To explore these possibilities is the aim of the workshop. The event took place for the first time in January 2018, it was extremely successful, the company reports.

The next workshop will take place the day before the start of the Techtextil trade show in Frankfurt. The organiser, the Textile Research Institute Thüringen-Vogtland (TITV), expects around 100 guests.

Nine speakers from research and practice will highlight the topic of additive manufacturing (AM) in particular. 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. Pedex will also deliver a speech on materials for filaments for FFF-3D printing.

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. The visitors will also 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.
