Reaching for Utopia

The textile industry is sitting in the midst of the perfect storm: global trade wars and tariff threats; the growth of the experiential economy at the cost of fashion; rising consumer concerns over sustainability, wastage and pollution in the clothing industry; changing priorities and new perceptions of luxury amongst younger consumers; everything  anti-trade is gaining traction – streetwear, counterfeiting, irony, casualization, protest; renewed fears of recession.

User Centered Design and Sport-Gener-Actions   

Sports industry is strongly focused on user needs. User Centered Design let companies and product developers work more efficient, with better - more creative and accurate results. Contemporary society is constituted by complexes individuals that by acting and interacting, activate a cross-fertilization process that makes the borders of the generational groups always less rigid, as well the boundaries of the various sports disciplines. The lecture will present examples, as well as methods and tools to work on innovative products. The myriad developments of technology, drive the pace of progress constantly, rhythmically, creating an advanced  movement exploring a sporting and cultural new dynamism.

A view on social and economical developments of the next decade and its impact on the industry

We are going through the fastest commerce revolution ever. It is consumer driven and technology enabled. Innovation is reaching us at an even higher pace in the next decade and it is important to be aware how those developments will impact our life and business. The first base for all future technologic developments has been set over the last decades and now Generation Z will exploit it in a new and partially unexpected way. Also the sporting goods industry will need to think more intensively about which business models will drive the future.

An Eco-Friendly Solution For Global Textile Waste Problem

Consumers are buying more and throwing away more. Today textile waste is destined for landfill. There isn’t an existing efficient technology nor system that can deal with the textile waste at economical scale today – with increased import regulations, shipping away is no longer an option, and we are soon faced with the problem of “what do we do with it?”

FENC® will present a case study of how FENC® TopGreen® Recycling Solutions has facilitated to remove plastic waste from destroying our oceans, and how the world’s first FENC® TopGreen® rTEX textile to textile recycling is a path towards a more sustainable eco-friendly future.

Algorithm-Based 3D Shape Knitting of Shoes

Integrated digital engineering as the basis for the individualized and automated production is one of the main research areas at the DITF Denkendorf. In this context, a microfactory concept for textile production with print, cut & sew method has been developed and demonstrated. 

In cooperation with the flat knitting machine manufacturer Stoll, the DITF now present a microfactory workflow for automated knitting of shoe uppers. Based on a 3D mesh representing the shoe last geometry and predefined stitch parameters, a flattening algorithm produces a one-to-one 2D equivalent geometry. In a subsequent step, requirements regarding color arrangement, machine configuration and knitting technique are taken into account, resulting in a bitmap image which can be immediately processed in a design step with Stoll software tools. Finally, the software generates a knitting program and activates the machine.

Skiing Pants Made in a Microfactory - a Complex Product Produced in a Simplified Process Chain

The Digital Textile Microfactory shows that a fully integrated, fully automated and adaptable workflow process from design concept to finished garment is possible with digital technology.

Consumers and their buying decisions are highly dynamic and trend driven, yet the supply chains of the fashion industry are rigid, slow and inflexible. In this context, digital technologies offer a great opportunity to overcome these limitations and to realize the flexibility, agility and adaptability required in today's supply chains. Companies are therefore using more and more digital tools, technologies and production methods, but often only aiming at quick wins, such as virtual sampling or fast market introduction only. A continuous use of the digital database from virtual product assessment to production would significantly increase the flexibility of process chains as well as the economic benefit for the companies. With the Digital Textile Microfactory concept, Albstadt-Sigmaringen University of Applied Sciences and the DITF are jointly pursuing the goal of harnessing this potential for industry and bringing it closer to companies and students in research and teaching.

Everything AI, everything o.k.?

Digitization offers new opportunities and shapes new visions of the textile industry. Artificial intelligence (AI) is regarded as one of the key technologies and is steadily gaining in importance. Virtual prototyping, individualized mass production and smart textiles are just some of the buzzwords which are used to point out the potential of a fundamental transformation in the whole process chain. But besides the integration of AI technologies in the work flow there is the need to take a closer look on the gap between digital options and analogue reality. What about the human scale? How will AI change society and consumers´ needs?
Nora Kühner presents an insightful round-up of current developments, mapping new approaches to the future of textile and sports business.

MOOV&COOL® 

Devan has teamed up with the Bakala Academy (University of Leuven) to evaluate the impact of sportswear clothing and our Moov&Cool technology on body core temperature during sports performance. Next to testing in different climates (hot and cold), some tests also focused on indoor sport activities. Not only professional athletes participated, but also recreational athletes did some tests according to a fixed protocol in a high-tech climate chamber. The obtained trends were very promising and will be presented in the presentation.
