Flat knitting solutions provider SHIMA SEIKI MFG., LTD., Japan, together with its Korean subsidiary SHIMA SEIKI KOREA INC., will participate in the Preview in SEOUL exhibition in Seoul, Korea this month.

Taking advantage of new regulations at the show which allow for the display of textile equipment at the venue this year, SHIMA SEIKI will be showing its latest combination of WHOLEGARMENT® knitting technology that allows a garment to be produced in its entirety without the need for linking or sewing afterward, and SDS®-ONE APEX series design software yields revolutionary game-changing flexibility and efficiency, not to mention sustainability.

Shown for the first time in Korea, whose flat knitting market has a strong following for WHOLEGARMENT® knitwear, is the SWG-XR next-generation WHOLEGARMENT® knitting machine. The SWG- name pays homage to the original SWG-X model of 1997, sharing with it the same 4-needlebed configuration featuring the company's own SlideNeedle™. Add to this a renewed spring-type moveable sinker system, a compact and lightweight carriage featuring 4 systems as well as auto yarn carriers. All contribute up to 25% higher efficiency, higher quality and increased product variety for supporting knits for all seasons. SWG-XR sets new standards for the next generation of waste-free, sustainable WHOLEGARMENT® knitting.

APEXFiz™ is subscription-based design software that maintains the proven functions that have made SHIMA SEIKI’s SDS®-ONE APEX series design systems so popular with fashion designers. Installed on personal computers, those strengths are now enhanced with the added versatility to adapt to different work styles and business environments including teleworking and telecommuting. APEXFiz™ software supports the creative side of fashion from planning and design to colorway evaluation, realistic fabric simulation and 3D virtual sampling. Virtual samples are a digitized version of sample making that are accurate enough to be used effectively as prototypes, replacing physical sampling and consequently reducing time, cost and material that otherwise go to waste. APEXFiz™ thereby helps to realize sustainability and digitally transform the fashion supply chain.

Far Furore – Furore machen: Leitthema der MUNICH FABRIC START

Aufsehen erregen. Einen außergewöhnlichen Zustand der Begeisterung erzeugen. Rasend vor Wut und gleichzeitig voller Verzückung. All diese Widersprüche beinhaltet das Wort „Furore“ – und damit das aktuelle Leitthema der 50. MUNICH FABRIC START. Die Farb- und Materialtrends für Herbst/Winter 23/24 spiegeln dies in einer Kontroverse wider – von ruhig, dezent und natürlich bis hoch-innovativ, impulsiv und provokativ; von nahezu unsichtbar bis maximal plakativ.

Mit knapp 900 Aussteller:innen und 1.500 Kollektionen auf einer Gesamtausstellungsfläche von rund 45.000 Quadratmetern umfasst die MUNICH FABRIC START inzwischen acht Bereiche: Fabrics und Additionals mit internationalen Materialinnovationen für alle Bekleidungssegmente, ReSOURCE und Sustainable Innovations für nachhaltige Innovationen, Design Studios mit Stoffdesigns und neuen Entwicklungen für Prints auf vergrößerter Fläche, den Innovationshub KEYHOUSE, das Denim Powerhouse BLUEZONE und das neue Sourcing-Areal THE SOURCE für internationale, vertikale Integration.

Participants
ACM - TRIMS AND ACCESSORIES PRODUCER
ACM was founded in 1982.
Since 1982, ACM has been providing the fashion world with unique, sought-after and customized details, guaranteeing prestigious and innovative workmanship. Each and every product is the result of the care we take at every stage of our production process: from the prototype, designed by putting the consumer's health first, to production with state-of-the-art machinery, which allows for fine workmanship and cutting-edge customization, while minimizing the impact on the environment (we are GRS certified) and complying with the strictest eco-toxicological regulations.

FASHION ART - LUXURY FASHION DESIGN
Fashionart is the brainchild of Andrea Rambaldi, who, after learning his trade from his parents, his mother a seamstress and his father the owner of a dye shop, decided to pursue a freelance career.
He began by collaborating with companies in the textile sector, where he deepened his knowledge in the field of chemistry and industrial processes, touching on the problems of processing cycles.
The real turning point came as a result of an important job for the Maison Chanel, which recognized the originality and effectiveness of his technical proposals. From that moment, this is 2008, FashionArt was born, a company focused on luxury fashion and design, expert in the design and production of garments.
From the idea to the final product, the company is able to support the client throughout the entire production process.
Since then, the company has grown and developed exponentially thanks to a team of managers, artists and experts whose experience makes them a benchmark in the high fashion industry. Fashionart operates exclusively in high fashion, a very difficult field in which to combine experience and technique with art and creativity, where our potential can be expressed to the fullest.

ELLETI - GARMENTS AND WASHING MAKER
Advocate of an approach that combines tradition, creativity, and innovation, for over 30 years Elleti Group has defined standards of absolute excellence for the denim industry. Born in the 80s in San Bonifacio, near Verona, the company developed in a one-of-a-kind context, a hotbed of ideas that led to the defining and establishing of new professions and skills in the field of denim treatment and garment personalization. Led by Luigi Lovato, right from the start the company established itself on the denim scene thanks to an ambitious and pioneering investment in new solutions. The following ten years mark an important growth which leads to the internationalization both of brand and production. After the implementing of a new department for garment dyeing, Elleti Group was ready to welcome the ever-increasing international demand, equipping itself with the first laundry in Tunisia, a country logistically central in the Mediterranean area, and as a result, ideal for the development of a complete textile supply chain. This successful story continues to unfold in the 2000s, a decade that marks the opening to the market of garment making thanks to two new structures in Romania, and peaks with the acquisition of Martelli Lavorazioni Tessili. Today Elleti Group stands firm in the market as a result of a complete offer that preserves the company’s artisanal vocation enriched through a constant process of responsible innovation.

In addition, companies BERTO INDUSTRIA TESSILE and OLIMPIAS GROUP will participate in the project by presenting their collections within their booths in the Catalyzer hall.

Freudenberg Friction Inserts at WindEnergy Hamburg 2022

Freudenberg Performance Materials is introducing Freudenberg Friction Inserts to trade visitors at WindEnergy, the leading trade fair for the international wind energy industry. Freudenberg Friction Inserts is a unique technology aimed at increasing the power density of wind turbines.

The Freudenberg Friction Inserts (FFI) technology is based on a special very thin nonwoven carrier material coated on one side with hard particles. The FFI are customized to fit each application, in terms of both the geometry and the construction parameters of the connection. As they do not create a gap they can be applied exactly where they are needed.

When placed in the joint, these hard particles penetrate into the surfaces of the two joining parts creating a micro interlock, thus reliably increasing the friction coefficient and achieving higher torque transmission in connections. This results in higher performance and a significant improvement in the efficiency of wind turbines. In addition, it enables the downsizing of components without compromising performance, reducing weight and material.

FFI help to improve the reliability of connections and thus of the entire wind turbine. Furthermore, they eliminate slipping and prevent fretting of connections.

Other examples of applications for FFI are highly loaded flange connections between the rotor shaft and gearbox, connections between the main bearing and the machine carrier housing, the gearbox to generator, or at the pitch gear or ring gear. They increase the friction co-efficient between two components.

In addition to extruders, filters and mixers that are suitable for both recycling processes and the processing of recyclate, BB Engineering offers a complete PET recycling plant called VacuFil.

With VacuFil, BB Engineering has developed an innovative PET LSP recycling process. The process combines gentle large-scale filtration and targeted IV regulation for consistently outstanding rPET melt quality. Thus, much more than simple "downcycling" is possible with VacuFil. VacuFil processes a wide range of input materials - post-production and post-consumer. The patented key component Visco+ vacuum filter removes volatile impurities quickly and reliably. VacuFil is a modular system that can be designed for different recycling applications. Simple granulation is possible, but also direct feeding into further processing, e.g. in the synthetic fiber spinning mill. BBE offers VacuFil in combination with its own VarioFil compact spinning plant to produce polyester yarn.

At the K show 2022, visitors can experience the VacuFil Visco+ recycling technology in operation with a connected VarioFil spinning plant and see live how recycling yarn is produced from PET waste.

50. INNATEX: Internationale Fachmesse für Green Fashion sieht erste Erholungszeichen

Die 50. INNATEX schloss am 31. Juli mit einem besseren Ergebnis, als viele Beteiligte erwartet hatten. Die Order und Publikumszahlen lagen zwar noch unter den Werten, die vor Corona als Standard galten, aber die Kurven steigen wieder und die Atmosphäre war so ausgelassen, wie man es bis 2019 von der internationalen Fachmesse für Naturtextilien kannte. Ein großer Teil der Labels und Institutionen berichtet von steigenden Reichweiten. All das unterstreicht die steigende Relevanz von Nachhaltigkeit in der Mode.

Rückkehr zur Naturfaser – am besten biozertifiziert
Zu den Trendthemen der Green-Fashion-Branche auf der INNATEX zählten Kreislaufwirtschaft, Naturfasern wie Leinen und Hanf, Pastellfarben und Transparenz entlang der Lieferketten. Die vom Deutschen Nachhaltigkeitspreis ausgezeichnete Online-Plattform Retraced bietet blockchain-basierte Lösungen für die Nachvollziehung bis zur Ressource. Axel Kolonko repräsentierte das Startup als einer von sieben Expert:innen in der erstmaligen Community Area und berichtete von hohem Interesse.

Die Pandemie und andere Problematiken sorgen für Planungsunsicherheiten
Aktuelle Themen und Herausforderungen, die bei den Lounge Talks in der Community Area und in der Messehalle besprochen wurden, gab es viele. Dazu zählen bevorstehende EU-Maßnahmen wie der Product Environmental Footprint, so Heike Hess vom Internationalen Verband der Naturtextilwirtschaft (IVN) und Schirmherr der INNATEX.

„Ein weiterer Aspekt ist die Engpass-Situation bei der Beschaffung,“ sagt Hess. „Das liegt an gestörten Lieferketten unter anderem durch Corona, Klimawandel und der internationalen politischen Krise, die der Krieg hervorruft. Die Knappheit für kleinere, konsequente Naturtextiler verschärft sich noch, weil große Konzerne auf den Nachhaltigkeitszug aufspringen und mit ihren Bestellmengen Vorrang haben. Für die daraus resultierende Planungsunsicherheit diskutieren wir derzeit Lösungen, darunter die strategische Netzwerkbildung, die Sicherung von Biofasern und Erschließung neuer Märkte durch globale Anbauprojekte.“

Alexander Hitzel, Projektleiter der INNATEX, resümiert: „Pandemie, Beschaffung, Inflation, steigende Energiepreise – es lässt sich einfach nicht voraussagen, was die nachhaltige Modeindustrie und andere Branchen in den nächsten Monaten erwartet, da muss man ehrlich sein. Aber diese 50. INNATEX gibt uns Zuversicht, dass Green Fashion wieder auf der Erfolgskurve ist.“

Die nächste INNATEX findet vom 21. bis 23. Januar 2023 statt.

Fraunhofer CCPE: Technische Produktinnovationen für eine zirkuläre Kunststoffwirtschaft

Ziel des Fraunhofer Cluster of Excellence Circular Plastics Economy CCPE ist es, die Wertschöpfungskette Kunststoff zirkulär zu gestalten. Sechs Fraunhofer-Institute erforschen am Beispiel Kunststoff, wie der Wandel von einer linearen zur einer zirkulären Kunststoffwirtschaft gelingen kann. Auf der ACHEMA in Frankfurt, der internationalen Messe für die Prozessindustrie, stellt das Fraunhofer CCPE vom 22. bis zum 26. August zwei technische Produktinnovationen und ein Bewertungstool für Unternehmen der Circular Economy vor.

Seit 2018 erforschen die sechs Fraunhofer-Institute — IAP, ICT, IML, LBF, IVV und UMSICHT – wie eine nachhaltige Transformation einer gesamten Wertschöpfungskette unter Prinzipien der Circular Economy erfolgen kann. Durch einen Multi-Stakeholder-Ansatz können FuE-Kompetenzen gebündelt werden, um Produkte zirkulär zu gestalten, passende Geschäftsmodelle zu entwickeln und End-of-Life Verluste bei Kunststoffabfällen zu reduzieren. Auf der ACHEMA werden die folgenden Projekte ausgestellt:

Durch einen Multi-Stakeholder-Ansatz können FuE-Kompetenzen gebündelt werden, um Produkte zirkulär zu gestalten, passende Geschäftsmodelle zu entwickeln und End-of-Life Verluste bei Kunststoffabfällen zu reduzieren. Auf der ACHEMA werden die folgenden Projekte ausgestellt:

  • Faserverstärktes Monomaterialkomposit aus PLA
    Biobasierte Kunststoffe werden zunehmend für technisch anspruchsvolle Einsatzbereiche z.B. in der Automobil- und Textilindustrie nachgefragt. Zwei zentrale Anforderungen sind dabei ihre Stabilität und ihre Recyclingfähigkeit. Forschende der Fraunhofer-Institute IAP und ICT entwickelten innovative PLA-basierte Monomaterial-Komposite (Organobleche), die technische Applikationen adressieren und insbesondere mit Hinblick auf die Rezyklisierbarkeit einen Beitrag zur Umsetzung der Sustainable Development Goals der UN leisten können.
  • Optisch und mechanisch verbesserte Folienrezyklate
    Bei der Herstellung von Folien zählt neben den mechanischen Eigenschaften besonders der visuelle Eindruck. Es dürfen keine Fehlstellen in Form von Stippen, Fischaugen oder Abrissen auftreten, die insbesondere bei Verwendung von Rezyklaten zu Problemen führen können. Die direkte Verwendung eines Folienregranulats führt jedoch häufig zu vielen Abrissen während der Folienherstellung, die zudem fatale Auswirkungen auf die mechanischen Materialeigenschaften haben. Durch die Zugabe einer geeigneten Additivformulierung konnte die Folienqualität nun signifikant verbessert werden.

Ist ein Produkt reif für die Circular Economy?
Weiterhin präsentieren die Forschenden nun auf der ACHEMA das webbasierte Tool CRL®, mit dem Unternehmen den Reifegrad von Produkten oder Produktsystemen im Hinblick auf die Circular Economy selbst bewerten können. Es prüft, inwieweit ein Produkt die Strategien der Kreislaufwirtschaft in den Bereichen Produktdesign, Produktdienstleistungssystem, End-of-Life-Management und Kreislaufwirtschaft bereits berücksichtigt und wo noch Verbesserungspotenzial besteht.

Hochrangige Entscheidungsträger aus dem Einzelhandel, darunter Markenartikler, Einzelhandelsberater, Anbieter von Dienstleistungen und Lösungen für den Handel, Ladendesigner, Architekten und Visual Merchandising Experten waren vertreten.

Die In-Store Asia 2022 fand zu einem Zeitpunkt statt, an dem sich der indische Einzelhandel nach einer langen und schwierigen Zeit mit pandemiebedingten Schließungen und Unsicherheiten wieder erholt.

Wenn es eine klare Erkenntnis aus den verschiedenen hochkarätig besetzten Beiträgen der In-Store Asia Convention 2022 gab, dann die, dass im Handel die Customer Experience und das persönliche Erlebnis im Store immer noch im Mittelpunkt der Entwicklungen stehen. Dies bedeutet jedoch, dass sich die Komponenten Gestaltung, Technologie und Mensch wie nie zuvor überschneiden.

Thomas Schlitt, Managing Director, Messe Düsseldorf India Pvt Ltd, konstatiert: „Die In-Store Asia ist ein Schmelztiegel der neuesten Ideen und Entwicklungen im Einzelhandel und konzentriert sich auf wichtige Bereiche wie technische Innovationen, Shopper Marketing, Zukunftsprognosen, Visual Merchandising, Retail Experience Design, Nachhaltigkeit und Store Design. Expo, Convention, VM Challenge und VM & RD Awards spiegeln all diese Bereiche wider. Insbesondere nach der Pandemie ist die In-Store Asia als führende Branchenplattform noch wichtiger geworden, um das Fachwissen aller Beteiligten des gesamten Einzelhandelssystem zu nutzen und damit den neuen Herausforderungen im Markt zu begegnen."

Eine Attraktion war wieder die VM Challenge, ein Window Display Wettbewerb, bei dem Visual Merchandiser gegeneinander antraten und innerhalb von 60 Minuten ein erst unmittelbar zuvor bekanntgegebenes Thema in einer Schaufenstergestaltung kreativ umsetzten. Feierlicher Höhepunkt der In-Store Asia 2022 war die Verleihung der diesjährigen VM&RD Retail Design Awards, für die mehr als 170 Beiträge in 22 Kategorien eingegangen waren.

Die 14. Ausgabe der In-Store Asia wird vom 11. bis 13. Mai 2023 in Mumbai stattfinden

INNATEX: Countdown to 50th international trade fair for sustainable textiles

The 50th INNATEX fair opens its gates to a Green Fashion trade audience from 29 to 31 July 2022 in Hofheim-Wallau, near Frankfurt. At this anniversary fair, over 200 labels will be exhibiting, a wide range of experts and organisations will be gathering, and elaborate features and facilities are planned for the Rhein-Main exhibition centre.

According to INNATEX project manager Alexander Hitzel, one highlight is the Community Area, which brings together a range of experts. In short lounge talks, they reveal insights into what they are currently working on and a dialogue format encourages personal discussion. Mirjam Smend, whom we know well from Greenstyle Munich, introduces her recently launched sustainability magazine, Pureviu, and facilitates the morning talks.

Mirjam Smend, whom we know well from Greenstyle Munich, introduces her recently launched sustainability magazine, Pureviu, and facilitates the morning talks.

Alongside standard bodies such as IVN and GOTS, which have taken part in INNATEX for many years, younger projects such as Fairmodel and the digital platform Retraced will be part of this special area. Fairtrade Germany, Femnet and the VDMD are to be found there too. Almost all of them are joining in with the Ask Me Anything dialouge format. Interested attendees can pre-book a slot of up to ten minutes for a personal discussion with the expert of their choice.

The supportive activities that had to be suspended during the pandemic are enjoying a comeback at this year’s summer fair: five newcomers to INNATEX designated DesignDiscoveries will be presenting their projects in another special area. Vegtus, from Barcelona, produces sneakers and other products from cactus leather. Natural textiles such as organic cotton are used by Lounge Cherie, a yoga fashion label.

Products for kids through to seniors, classics and streetwear, footwear and accessories
Nordlicht similarly relies on recyclable, renewable natural fibres for its outerwear, bags and accessories. The field of circular fashion is also served by the remaining two Design Discoveries. Both Nature is Future, with its handmade sneakers, and Freibeutler, with its functional rucksacks, make extensive use of recycled materials, while also paying due attention to broader sustainability aspects.

Regular INNATEX exhibitors include Lana, Chapati and Didymos, all of whom are also celebrating anniversaries. Labels such as Anokho with their colourful accessories in jacquard fabrics and Danish label Angel Circle with its plus-size fashion are exhibiting for the first time.
