Editorial: Textile machinery at ITMA 2015 - mastering the art of sustainable innovation
published in Issue 177, December 2015
Tremendous progress has been made over the past ten years in making textile production more environmentally sustainable. This was highlighted at the 17th ITMA (International Exhibition of Textile Machinery) - held during November 12-19, 2015 in Milan, Italy - where the theme of the exhibition was "Master the Art of Sustainable Innovation". Attendance at the fair broke all records, reflecting the importance of this topic to the industry as a whole. In textile machinery, environmental sustainability has been improved through automation, involving the use of robotics, better drives, sensors, control systems, metering units and remote diagnostics. Machinery builders have shown that even small process alterations and technical improvements to machinery can result in significant savings in terms of energy, raw materials and water. In this report, Robin Anson discusses ongoing sustainability projects conducted by two of the leading European textile machinery industry associations, ACIMIT and VDMA. Also, he presents case studies of developments by Brückner, Euratex, Monforts and Welspun to illustrate how process automation is helping to reduce consumption of resources while also increasing efficiency.
