Forster Rohner Textile Innovations, the leading technical textiles manufacturer, who is supplying the market with electronic textiles since 2013 offering products for diverse market fields will present the state of the art in electronic textiles together with partners from various market fields at the upcoming Techtextil international trade fair..

The textile quality of the products and the retention of core textile properties like robustness, drape and washability lie in focus of the work on textile electronics, the company reports.

The portfolio includes textile conductors, textile heaters, textile sensors and illuminated textiles. Diverse applications include medical, sport and lifestyle, industrial, interior design, architecture and more.

At the company’s state of the art production infrastructure in Switzerland, Romania and China, Forster Rohner Textile Innovations offers cost efficient production of electronic textiles in small, as well as large series.

Forster Rohner Textile Innovations draws on a portfolio of more than 140 different conductive yarn materials, including custom developments and combinations for small to as large as 14 metre scale heating and sensor structures.

This material expertise is to develop unique products, such as the latest generation of safety mats for industrial applications or high performance soft sensor structures for ECG or EEG measurements.

The active sportswear company Wearable Life Sciences also relies on the expertise of Forster Rohner Textile Innovations in its new Antelope Suit. Awarded with the ISPO Brand New Award 2015, compressive textiles combined with textile electrodes for electronic muscle stimulations (EMS) are said to enhance workout effects.

The company’s e-broidery technology is said to enable the integration of active lighting in textiles without compromising the textile character of the product, opening up the field for a variety of new aesthetics and functional fabrics.

A foldable and lightweight lighting product for professionals from the film, photography architecture or design industry, Carpetlight will also premiere at Techtextil.
