Vandewiele, a leading supplier of carpet and velvet looms, tufting systems and textile accessories, will show its latest developments of textile products and related machinery at Techtextil 2019 next month in Frankfurt, Germany. (Hall 3.0, Booth B21)
Innovations include further developments woven on the JEC award-winning 3D-Lighttrans loom for multi-layer woven panels with integrated stringers, omega-profiles and hollow reinforcements. Composite reinforcements with a thermoplastic matrix, or ‘organosheets’, offer reversible deformation and recycling potential in comparison with thermoset composite materials.
Other developments relate to new design possibilities in the field of one piece shoe-weaving, for creating 3D effects and increased local permeability, in filter applications and textile reinforced concretes.
