Texcare International will not take place in 2021

  • Leading suppliers of textile-care technology cancel their participation

Leading suppliers of laundry and dry-cleaning technology have used the free cancellation deadline offered by Messe Frankfurt against the background of the pandemic and cancelled their participation in Texcare International 2021 shortly before expiry. In view of this the Advisory Council of the world’s leading textile-care fair have voted to cancel Texcare International for this year because its success can no longer be guaranteed.

  • Leading suppliers of textile-care technology cancel their participation

Leading suppliers of laundry and dry-cleaning technology have used the free cancellation deadline offered by Messe Frankfurt against the background of the pandemic and cancelled their participation in Texcare International 2021 shortly before expiry. In view of this the Advisory Council of the world’s leading textile-care fair have voted to cancel Texcare International for this year because its success can no longer be guaranteed.

In view of the corona crisis earlier this year, Messe Frankfurt offered exhibitors of Texcare International the right to cancel their participation free of charge until 3 September 2021. As the months passed, the overall outlook became increasingly positive and, by the beginning of August, around 200 companies – including the important and big manufacturers from all parts of the textile-care sector – had registered to exhibit at Texcare International in Frankfurt am Main from 27 November to 1 December 2021. Factors contributing to this included the growing pace of vaccination around the world, the categorisation of trade fairs as business events and the officially approved protection and hygiene concept of Messe Frankfurt. Nevertheless, the mood changed shortly before the cancellation deadline as leading companies decided to withdraw from the event because of uncertainties regarding the future development of the pandemic.

Kerstin Horaczek, Vice President Technology Shows at Messe Frankfurt, took stock after the deadline: “Together with our partners, we worked untiringly to stage the Texcare International for the textile-care sector in the autumn. However, a leading international trade fair with a significantly reduced spectrum on show would not do justice to participants’ expectations of the fair as the most important meeting place and innovation hub for the sector. Therefore, we have decided to accept the vote of the Advisory Council and cancel Texcare International 2021. We are extremely sorry about this. At the same time, we are grateful for the on-going, high level of commitment demonstrated by the sector for their most important trade fair.”

Baldwin to unveil FlexoCleanerBrush™ at SuperCorrExpo

Baldwin Technology Company Inc. will showcase a new generation of innovative technologies for optimized corrugated high-graphics package printing at SuperCorrExpo, taking place in Orlando, Florida, from Aug. 8 to 12.

The FlexoCleanerBrush™ enhances the print quality and improves worker safety in corrugated printing. The system automatically removes dust and contamination from the plate in seconds during production, without stopping the press. It also performs full end-of-job plate cleaning and drying in fewer than four minutes, enabling increased uptime and sustainability. A carbon fiber core keeps even the ultra-wide FlexoCleanerBrush to a minimal weight, and ensures cleaning is stable, uniform and consistent throughout the plate’s width. Because the system is fully automatic and spans the entire width of the plate cylinder, the FlexoCleanerBrush improves safety by eliminating routine operator contact with the machine, while also reducing the risk of cylinder nip injuries and contact with wash agents.

Also on view in Baldwin’s SuperCorrExpo booth, the FlexoDry™ is a fully integrated IR drying system, specifically developed for corrugated flexo printing presses. It reduces energy consumption by up to 30 percent over standard IR dryers through patented Diamond IR™ lamps. The system delivers improved drying results because of a unique optical design that produces higher intensity for enhanced color definition, and reduces or eliminates marking altogether, allowing for high-speed and full-confidence printing.

Additionally, Baldwin will showcase LED-UV technology, designed by its AMS Spectral UV division for wide-format flexo corrugated box printing.

Frankfurt Fashion Week im Januar 2022 als phygitale Messe

Besucher*innen an fünf Tagen aus 60 Ländern – die digitale Ausgabe der neuen Frankfurt Fashion Week war ein voller Erfolg. Vom 5. bis 9. Juli 2021 bot das FFW STUDIO kontemporären wie zukunftsweisenden Fashion-Content in seiner konzentriertesten Essenz: Drei Konferenzen, über 60 Panels, mehr als 72 Stunden Diskussionen, Talks und Präsentationen mit mehr als 150 Speakern und digitale Beiträge von rund 20 game changing Brands haben gezeigt, dass die Mode- und Kreativwelt bereit ist, die notwendigen Schritte zu unternehmen, um die aktuell stattfindende Transformation der Branche erfolgreich zu meistern. Die Besonderheit: Die Inhalte des FFW STUDIO bleiben weiterhin on demand verfügbar.

Die Besonderheit: Die Inhalte des FFW STUDIO bleiben weiterhin on demand verfügbar.

Alleine die multidisziplinären und internationalen Konferenzformate „The New European Bauhaus – Werkstatt der Zukunft“, organisiert vom Fashion Council Germany in Kooperation mit der Frankfurt Fashion Week, der „Frankfurt Fashion SDG Summit presented by Conscious Fashion Campaign“ in Kooperation mit dem United Nations Office for Partnerships und die von der Messe Frankfurt umgesetzte Neonyt-Konferenz „Fashionsustain“ lieferten in über 40 Stunden Live-Stream Deep-Dives, Debattenbeiträge und Einblicke in die beiden Leitthemen der neuen Frankfurt Fashion Week: Sustainability und Digitisation in Verbindung mit neusten Trends, Designs und Styles.

Phygital, on point, zeitgemäß
Die Frankfurt Fashion Week versteht sich als Meeting Point progressiven Innovationsdenkens und gegenwärtiger Ästhetik: Nach ihrer Coronabedingt erzwungenen Digitalpremiere wird sie vom 17. bis 21. Januar 2022 die gesamte Branche erstmals phygital – also gleichzeitig onsite und online – in Frankfurt zusammenbringen. Das digitale FFW STUDIO wird dafür dauerhaft integriert in das in Frankfurt geplante, ganzheitliche Fashion Week-Ecosystem bestehend aus kontemporären Messekonzepten, multidisziplinären Konferenzen, innovativen Runwayformaten, der Aktivierung des öffentlichen Raums und einem verbindenden Plattformgedanken.

Dafür will die Frankfurt Fashion Week alle Stakeholder der Mode- und Textilbranche zusammenbringen: von Topmanager*innen und Entscheidungsträger*innen über Einkäufer*innen bis hin zu Produktmanager*innen und Designer*innen. Deshalb soll die gesamte Wertschöpfungskette in Frankfurt vereint werden – neben der für eine Fashion Week maßgeblichen Präsentation von Mode in Runwayshows und Kollektionen, sollen daher zukünftig auch innovative Vorstufenunternehmen und Ingredient Brands von den Rohstoffen über die Fertigung bis hin zu Services in das FFW Ecosystem integriert werden.

Die beiden zentralen Zukunftsthemen der Branche: Sustainability & Digitisation und vielversprechender Ausblick auf Januar 2022
Soziale Lieferketten, Traceability, faire Produktionsbedingungen, Virtual Fashion, Blockchain, glokale Kollaborationen, phygitaler Retail und State-of-the-Art-Materialinnovationen – das vielfältige Programm hat die Diversität und Spannbreite der die Fashionwelt aktuell beschäftigenden Themen und Herausforderungen sichtbar gemacht.

Was bei der digitalen Ausgabe nur bedingt möglich war, wird in Zukunft zu einem festen Bestandteil der Frankfurt Fashion Week: Ab Januar 2022 wird die FFW zusätzlich in die City verlängert: Frankfurter Gastronomie, Hotellerie, Clubszene, Museen, Festivals und der Einzelhandel.

Die Initiierenden der Frankfurt Fashion Week, die Messe Frankfurt und die Premium Group, setzen ab Januar nicht nur ihre bestehenden Messen, Premium, Seek und Neonyt sowie die bestehenden Konferenzen in Frankfurt um, sondern lancieren zusätzliche Messeformate für die Fashion Community.

Overall prize of the “IQ Innovationspreis Mitteldeutschland“ for FibreCoat GmbH and DBF Deutsche Basalt Faser GmbH

FibreCoat GmbH from Aachen, Germany, together with DBF Deutsche Basalt GmbH, developed a completely new type of fibre material to shield electromagnetic radiation from digital end devices, medical technology or e-car batteries cheaply and effectively. The joint project was awarded the overall prize of the“ IQ Innovationspreises Mitteldeutschland“ on 24 June in an online event broadcast live from Leipzig.

The prize is endowed with €15,000 and was sponsored by the Halle-Dessau, Leipzig and East Thuringia Chambers of Industry and Commerce.

FibreCoat GmbH from Aachen, Germany, together with DBF Deutsche Basalt GmbH, developed a completely new type of fibre material to shield electromagnetic radiation from digital end devices, medical technology or e-car batteries cheaply and effectively. The joint project was awarded the overall prize of the“ IQ Innovationspreises Mitteldeutschland“ on 24 June in an online event broadcast live from Leipzig.

The prize is endowed with €15,000 and was sponsored by the Halle-Dessau, Leipzig and East Thuringia Chambers of Industry and Commerce.

Electromagnetic radiation from smartphones, hospital diagnostics and electric car batteries must be shielded so that they do not inter-fere with each other. To prevent mutual interference, they have so far been covered with metal fibre fabrics, a very time- and energy-consuming and thus expensive procedure. The new material from Basalt Faser GmbH and FibreCoat GmbH prevents this with a fibre core made of melted, thinly drawn basalt, which is coated with aluminium and bundled into the so-called AluCoat yarn. This yarn remains just as conductive and shielding, but is lighter, stronger, cheaper and more sustainable than previous alternatives. In addition, there are further advantages:

  • The number of process steps required is reduced from ten to one.
  • 1,500 metres of yarn are produced per minute instead of the previous five metres.
  • The energy required is only 10 per cent of the previous amount.

The result is a price that is twenty times lower.

The textile made of AluCoat fibres is versatile and flexible: as wallpaper it can shield 5G radiation in offices or medical rooms or encase batteries and thus ensure the smooth functioning of electric cars. AluCoat is already being used in some companies. A European fibre centre in Sangerhausen is being planned for mass production.

The two innovative companies DBF Deutsche Basalt GmbH and FibreCoat GmbH from East and West combine the two materials basalt and aluminium to protect against electromagnetic radiation. In doing so, they coat basalt with aluminium and, through this novel combination, create an inexpensive, sustainable and quickly produced alter-native for a market worth billions.

FibreCoat GmbH from Aachen is a spin-off of the Institut für Textiltechnik (ITA) of RWTH Aachen University; the managing directors Dr Robert Brüll and Alexander Lüking and Richard Haas have completed their doctorates at the ITA or are in the process of preparing their doctorates. Georgi Gogoladze, Managing Director of Deutsche Basaltfaser GmbH, also studied at RWTH Aachen University. The two managing directors Brüll and Gogoladze know each other from their student days.

Genau diese Themen nimmt die Fashionsustain, das internationale und multidisziplinäre Konferenzformat der Neonyt, vom 6. bis 8. Juli 2021 und erstmalig im Rahmen des digitalen FFW STUDIO der Frankfurt Fashion Week in den Fokus. Sie präsentiert in Form von Panels, Talks, Keynotes und interaktiven Formaten spannende und tiefgehende Einblicke in den laufenden Transformationsprozess der Branche. Unter anderem mit dabei sind der Grüne Knopf, Oeko-Tex und PwC.

Drei Tage, mehr als 20 Einzelformate, zahlreiche Insights: Unter den zentralen Topics State of the Industry, Innovating the Industry und State of Retail versammelt sich das gesamte, vielseitige und multidisziplinäre Programm der Fashionsustain. Der inhaltliche Fokus liegt dabei auf den Themen Fashion Design & Circularity, Values & Diversity, Digitisation, Textile Certifications und Cotton & Denim. In diversen Talks, Diskussionen und Präsentationen wird für die Community erlebbar, was die nachhaltige Modebranche bewegt, welche Potenziale und Visionen die handelnden Akteur*innen aktuell forcieren und wie diese für einen echten Wandel in der Industrie aufgegriffen und skaliert werden können.

State of the Industry – was bewegt die Modeindustrie?
Diese Frage stellt am 6. Juli 2021 ab 10 Uhr der erste Konferenztag. Zu den maßgeblichen Themen, die die Branche aktuell herausfordern – so die Effekte der Corona-Pandemie auf die internationale Modeindustrie; die Frage inwieweit sich Textilproduktion langfristig von global zu lokal shiftet; oder wie Nachhaltigkeit ganzheitlich in Prozesse integriert werden und Permanenz erlangen kann - diskutieren Speaker*innen diverser
Fashion Brands im Panel „Global supply. Local demand. Total change?“.
Auch das in Deutschland jüngst beschlossene Lieferkettengesetz spielt eine wichtige Rolle. Im Panel „Same Goals. Different Systems. How transparency triggers responsibility“, initiiert vom Grünen Knopf und von der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).

Der Zusammenhang von Finanzen, Nachhaltigkeit und Mode: Durch gezielte Entscheidung, Kreditnehmer*innen anhand ihrer Nachhaltigkeitsbemühungen zu berücksichtigen, kann der Finanzdienstleistungssektor zu einer nachhaltigeren Zukunft beitragen. Was das konkret bedeutet, welche Auswirkungen dies auf die Kreditvergabe haben kann und wie die Branche außerdem zur Transformation der Textil- und Modeindustrie beitragen kann, wird in einer Diskussion unter dem Titel „Finance. How it triggers sustainability in fashion“ debattiert.

Digitalisierung und Innovation: Transformation, Transparenz, Zertifizierungen
Die beiden zentralen Themen des zweiten Konferenztages sind hochaktuell und nehmen insbesondere im Kontext der Frankfurt Fashion Week eine zentrale Bedeutung ein.

Transparenz entlang der textilen Lieferketten wird immer relevanter und sie ist eng mit digitalen Innovationen verknüpft. Deshalb wird im Panel „Transparency. The tech solutions for new supply and value chains“ verschiedene technische Lösungen vor, die mehr Transparenz beim Kleidungskauf ermöglichen, vorgestellt.
Beim interaktiven Certification Buzzword-Bingo mit Max Gilgenmann powered by Grüner Knopf werden Zuschauer*innen mittels Gamification eingebunden, bevor im Panel „Carbon and Water Footprinting. How to drive it in the Fashion Industry“ by Oeko-Tex das Thema rund um Zertifikate weiter vertieft wird.

State of Retail – von der Innovation zu den Konsument*innen
Am Donnerstag, den 8. Juli dreht sich das Programm der Fashionsustain rund um den State of Retail. Wie findet man als kleines, nachhaltiges Label am besten eine passende Retail-Plattform für eine gelungene Zusammenarbeit? Was unter dem Topic Retail auf keinenb Fall fehlen darf, sind Einblicke in neue Businessmodelle. Secondhand, leihen, leasen, resellen – die zirkulären Möglichkeiten der Wertschöpfung sind für den Einzelhandel breit gefächert. Mehr Einblicke dazu gibt es im Panel „New business models. From pre-loved to repaired and recycled“. Weil Nachhaltigkeit, umweltbewusster Lebensstil und verantwortungsvoller Umgang mit der Natur mittlerweile in der Mitte der Gesellschaft angekommen sind, ist es umso wichtiger, dass Marken und Labels den Konsument*innen Orientierung und Transparenz zu bieten. In dem Design-Talk „Sustainable Branding“ des German Design Council geht es deshalb um nachhaltige Markenführung, den Aufbau eine entsprechenden Markenstrategie und die zentrale Bedeutung von guter Nachhaltigkeitskommunikation.

A stand-out attraction of the event was the recently released 100 Series, which is priced affordably to allow printers entry into different markets, as many look to expand their portfolio in these uncertain times. The new JFX600-2513 and JFX550-2513, which debuted a few weeks prior at virtual drupa, similarly are higher end but still affordable printers, when compared to other large format UV flatbed machines in its class. 3D full colour print technology also featured heavily in the event, as Mimaki explored the exciting propositions it opens up in different markets and how the brand continues to extend the reach and accessibility of cutting-edge 3D technologies with its upcoming 3DUJ-2207 printer.

Mr. Kazuaki Ikeda, President of Mimaki Engineering commented, “I’d like to extend my thanks to everyone who joined us during this exciting new virtual event. During the pandemic, carrying on innovating has been central to Mimaki’s objectives, with eight new products having been released since October, and even more scheduled to come out over the course of this year. I hope that we can soon all meet at in-person events, once it’s safe to do so, but until then I’m excited to see the results of the continued collaboration and innovation of print industry that we saw in our Innovation Days event.”

Sappi: New Sublimation Paper for Textile Industry

Sappi offers Transjet Tacky Industrial, a coated dye sublimation paper for digital transfer printing, specially developed for high-speed inkjet printing on highly elastic textiles. Also new is the uncoated dye sublimation paper Basejet, which has been developed for light designs for high-speed digital printing of fashion and home textiles.

  • Transjet Tacky Industrial: Immediate tack effect, high ink transfer, fast ink drying; no ghosting on elastic textiles thanks to reversible tack
  • Basejet: Consistent print quality for light designs, fast ink-drying, very fast transfer process

Transjet Tacky Industrial enables highly elastic fabrics to be printed on industrial high-speed machines that work with a higher glycol content, such as printheads from Kyocera. The paper is first printed with the desired image or pattern which is then transferred to the elastic polyester fabric by means of heat and pressure.

The paper is first printed with the desired image or pattern which is then transferred to the elastic polyester fabric by means of heat and pressure.

Sublimation paper for the textile industry
The new dye sublimation paper offers many benefits for the textile industry, which frequently has to adapt to changing trends. As it is suitable for use on high-speed digital printers, significantly more designs can be printed in the same time than was previously possible on plotters. Thanks to a special heat-reactive coating, the paper adheres to highly stretchable content, while the reversible tack prevents ghosting and textile shrinkage. Transjet Tacky
Industrial has a high ink load capacity so the print can be better accentuated due to strong colour saturation. The design remains clearly visible when the fabric is stretched to its maximum, which is often the case with sportswear in particular.

Basejet specially for light designs
Sappi has also added the Basejet uncoated dye sublimation paper to its portfolio, an additional solution for the digital printing of fashion and home textiles in consistent print quality. The uncoated dye sublimation paper is intended in particular for light designs and cost-driven production processes.
