The Germany-based Mechanical Engineering Industry Associationâ€™s (VDMAâ€™s) Textile Machinery Association to help textile manufacturers interested in developing and manufacturing new products; or enhancing competitiveness by increasing efficiency and quality as well as tackle topics such as saving energy and material resources, digitization, and smart factories will be holding two events one in Charloote, U.S. and one in Mexico city this November to showcase German technology to industry decision makers.
Each event will feature approximately 25 VDMA member companies that will present practice-oriented technology topics along the entire textile chain from spinning to finishing and dyeing, in addition to cross topics including energy and material efficiency, life cycle costs, and Industry 4.0. Conference presentations, some held in parallel, will be supplemented by B2B meetings and a table-top exhibition area.
The free event is targeted to decision-makers in the textile manufacturing industry. Interested parties can register at each eventâ€™s website, as well as use tools on the site to schedule meetings with participating VDMA member companies, subsidiaries and agents.
According to the VDMA, traditionally the United States is one of the top five destinations for German textile machinery. Strong sectors in the United States include technical textiles and nonwovens, but also home textiles like carpets.
Thomas Waldmann, managing director, VDMA Textile Machinery said that in the first half of 2017, German exports of textile machinery and accessories to the United States reached more than $130 million. So, for the whole year 2017, they can expect business on a quite good level with exports worth well above $200 million.
The VDMA reports the market in Mexico was quiet for a couple of years, but picked up in 2015 and 2016. In the first six months of 2017, German deliveries of textile machinery to Mexico reached more than $20 million. Continuing like this, the result for the whole year will be a good one.
They expect decision-makers of textile manufacturers from the United States and Mexico who are interested in developing and manufacturing new textile products to attend the event.
For textile producers that wish to enhance competitiveness by increasing production efficiency and quality of their textile products, the VDMA events are a place to be. The practice-oriented technology topics will place high value on saving energy and material resources in the production process.
Textile producers looking for content behind the sometimes loosely used buzzwords â€˜digitizationâ€™ and â€˜smart factoryâ€™ will benefit from attending the conferences in Charlotte and Mexico City.
The first event will be held in Charlotte at the Sheraton Charlotte Hotel November 6, 2017. The second conference will be held November 8-9, 2017, at the Hilton Mexico City Santa Fe in Mexico City.
