AMANN@Texprocess 2019 – experience the future of threads

Soon it is time again - from 14th till 17th May, Texprocess in Frankfurt will open its doors again for the international expert audience. As in past years, AMANN is going to be present with its own booth and will give an insight into the future of threads.

Ahead of their time: AMANN threads as pioneering technology products

AMANN threads have become an essential part of ultra-modern technological products for a wide variety of industries and do far more than just perform their traditional functions in seams. For instance, our smart yarns can be used as sensors or transfer media.

The functionalisation of the thread: conductivity

Our conductive threads can transfer electricity and data and thus provide information about the stress on components, temperature or humidity. Conductive threads can also offer advantages in medical technology: as an essential component of pain relief belts, the use of AMANN’s conductive thread Silver-tech enables electrical impulses to be transmitted to the nerve endings, which has a positive effect on the patient's pain memory.

Threads are now no longer only sewn or embroidered – the conductive Steel-tech thread, for example, can be integrated directly into the fabric and takes on the role of an RFID antenna, recording the number of wash cycles of an item of clothing, for example. Conductive threads can also be suitable as pressure sensors that are used in composite material recording stress data.

Light and space-saving: the textile alternative

Not only can intelligent threads replace bulky parts in a space-saving manner, they are also particularly lightweight. This makes them attractive materials above all for future technologies such as electromobility or lightweight construction. In particular, by also avoiding materials that are difficult to recycle such as plastic and other synthetics, the threads make a significant contribution to the sustainability of components and products.

Textile centre of innovation: AMANN Innovation Lab

We develop all innovative concepts concerning our smart yarns in close cooperation with our customers in the AMANN Innovation Lab.

Sounds interesting? You’ll find AMANN at Texprocess in hall 5.1, booth B51 – we’re looking forward to your visit.
