Editorial: The textile machinery industry embraces Industry 4.0
published in Issue 115, November 2019
The concept of Industry 4.0 refers to smart factories in which machines are augmented with web connectivity and connected to self-learning, autonomous systems. The concept is being vigorously pursued by the textile machinery industry worldwide and especially by companies in Europe. The concept has also been a key theme at recent industry trade fairs, including the textile technology exhibition ITMA. In this report, Robin Anson discusses developments made by companies pioneering Industry 4.0 technologies which exhibited at ITMA, with a particular focus on the topics of additive textile manufacturing, augmented reality, full digitalisation, intelligent machine assistance systems, preventative maintenance, robotics and self-creating products.
