At the VDMA textile machinery conference held on November 6 in Charlotte, N.C. more than 80 decision-makers of the U.S. textile, nonwoven and carpet industry as well as 25 leading textile machinery and accessories manufacturers participated in the event for the textile industries. While the two-day event held on November 8-9 in Mexico City attracted nearly 450 customers and 30 textile machinery and accessories manufacturers, making it one of the most successful events of the VDMA Textile Machinery Association.
The VDMA Textile Machinery Association accomplished successful events for the textile industries both in the US and Mexico. The VDMA member companies presented their latest production technologies from spinning to dyeing and finishing. Major topics addressed were digitalization of the textile and textile machinery industry (Industrie 4.0 / industrial internet), higher efficiency and profitability, energy, water and material savings, new applications with growth potential, such as composites and nonwovens, higher quality with measurement, control and testing devices, technical training centres.
Hermann Selker, Head of Marketing, TrÃ¼tzschler said that the VDMA events have been a big success for their company.
The conference in Mexico City was addressed by JosÃ© Cohen Sitton, president of the National Chamber of the Textile Industry CANAINTEX, where he stated that German textile machinery and engineering are one of the best in the world. He added that the Mexican textile industry has to invest in order to be on top of technology no matter what the outcome of the ongoing NAFTA negotiations will be.
These two events focused on customers, the training session at the Instituto PolitÃ©cnico Nacional (Escuela Superior de IngenierÃa Textil) in Mexico City on November 10 aimed at future engineers. About 500 textile engineering students followed the technical presentations from 18 textile machinery and components manufacturers. The company delegates also visited the machinery department of the faculty. The VDMAâ€™s contribution to improve the education of future customers was very much appreciated.
Arturo Arauzo, Director of the Escuela Superior de IngenierÃa Textil, commenting on the training session said that the visit and the technology presentations of the well-known German machinery companies were very well received by their students and by the staff. They see this visit as the beginning of a partnership between their institute and the German textile machinery industry.
In 2018, the VDMA Textile Machinery Association will be supporting sales and marketing of the member companies through trade fairs (German pavilions), own technical conferences & B2B as well as official trade missions in Indonesia, India, United States, Belarus, Brazil, Uzbekistan, Iran, China and Egypt.
