Cinte Techtextil China 2014
Largest ever Cinte Techtextil China to take place next month
Some of the industry’s biggest names to feature in the Germany Pavilion
Organised by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology, the Confederation of the German Textile and Fashion Industry and Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH, the Germany pavilion will house 30 well-known exhibitors this year representing textile technology, technical textiles, nonwovens and coated textiles. Founded in 1884, A. Monforts Textilmaschinen is a supplier of textile machinery for dyeing and finishing of classical textiles (woven & knitted), and for coating and finishing of technical textiles and nonwovens. They have a special range of products for finishing airbag fabrics, pre-preg fibres and technical felts.
A number of other machinery suppliers feature in the Germany Pavilion. This includes AUTEFA Solutions who produce individual machines, as well as turnkey airlay, carding and thermobonding lines for the nonwovens industry. Oerlikon Neumag supply plants for the production of BCF carpet yarns and synthetic staple fibres, as well as various nonwoven, spunmelt and airlaid technologies for a wide range of applications. And Lindauer DORNIER GmbH, who has been producing weaving machines since 1950, will feature their rapier and air-jet weaving machines in this pavilion.
Sandler develops and produces nonwovens for a range of fields including automotive, construction, engineering, filtration, hygiene and wipes. This will be their fourth time participating at the fair, and the company has had partnerships in China since 2004. “Technical textiles are used in many industrial areas in China and the demand is continuing to grow in the wake of the fast expansion of production in the building sector, the automotive industry as well as in the medical and consumer goods industry,” Dr Ulrich Hornfeck, Member of the Management Board explained. “Nonwovens for the automotive industry and filter media are of particular interest in this market, particularly high-quality nonwovens for complex products.”
Strong showing from Asian exhibitors adds to diversity of suppliers
The diverse range of exhibitors on offer at Cinte Techtextil China is one of the features most appreciated by buyers at the fair. The Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel (HKRITA), a long-term participant at Messe Frankfurt textile fairs in the region, serves the textile industry in Hong Kong and Mainland China. They focus on developing new materials and textiles, advanced production technology and design & evaluation technology, and will present their intelligent impact protectors based on 3D auxetic spacer fabrics at the fair. These unique fabrics become rigid with impact and flexible again after impact, and are designed to protect wearers from impacts and falls.
The Korea Textile Trade Association (KTTA) is one exhibitor with a wide range of products on display at the fair for the Mobiltech, Protech and Sportech sectors. Just some of the items they will showcase on behalf of their association members include heat protecting fabrics, non-slip carbon fabrics, carbon fibre and aramid composite fabrics, nonwoven textiles for automobile interiors and ultra lightweight fabrics for tents and tarps. Also from Korea is the Korea Textile Machinery Research Institute (KOTMI), a leading textile machinery research institute. Their research areas for textile machinery include structural & mechanism analysis, process development, vibration & acoustic analysis and automatic control systems.
As well as all the textiles and end products on display, the fair’s fringe programme offers up the latest information to the industry. The China International Non-Woven Congress takes place in the morning of 25 September, while a number of informative seminars and product presentations are also scheduled throughout the fair. In addition, the Innovative Showcase Display Area features the latest industry technology.
