More efficient, more digital, more creative: at its upcoming edition – from 7-10 January 2020 – Heimtextil will present an extended range of printing and processing machines for the textile industry and expand the product segment textile technologies.
As the digital revolution is currently leading to fundamental changes in the manufacture and processing of home textiles, so Heimtextil will highlight the opportunities afforded by the current technological upheavals in the industry and present the latest product developments, organizers report.
“With the expanded area, we are improving order options and the information offered for representatives from the industry. In addition to materials and designs, you will also find the latest technology and corresponding accessories from leading international suppliers here – all in one place,” said Olaf Schmidt, Vice President Textiles & Textile Technologies at Messe Frankfurt.
Valuable information about the latest technology and product development is provided by the lecture area Textile Technology Talks. In cooperation with established institutes and associations, Heimtextil invites participants to attend lectures and expert talks on all four days of the trade fair.
For example, the Mechanical Engineering Industry Association (VDMA) will provide information on Manufacturing on demand – the future of individual and responsible production.
The expert centre textil vernetzt invites participants to a networking breakfast on 9 January 2020.
The Textile Processing area will be expanded with new additions at the upcoming Heimtextil. New exhibitors include Demsan Tekstil Makine and Tunca Teknik from Turkey, Joos sewing machines from the USA, Monti Antonio from Italy and Neenah Coldenhove and Wybenga from the Netherlands. Wybenga will present the complete program of machines for the manufacture of curtains and blinds in Frankfurt. J. Zimmer Maschinenbau from Austria and ZSK Strickmaschinen from Germany will also present their new products.
According to ZSK, its presence at Heimtextil will focus on the trends towards individualization and personalization. In line with this, the latest embroidery machines with more needles will be presented. The higher number of needles should make the workflow more effective. Sales channels will be optimized and online ordering systems and shops better stocked.
Italian Textile Machinery (ACIMIT) will also be represented with a joint stand and will present the technical innovations of its members in the processing sector. In the Digital Print Technology area, printer manufacturer HP from Germany, Mtex Solutions from Portugal as well as Aleph, Fotoba International, MS Printing Solutions and Sublitex from Italy will also be represented.
