FKT brochure „Techtex & Automotive“ now available in English
The booklet has been published by the Forschungskuratorium Textil e. V. and supports English speaking seminars, for example at Hochschule Niederrhein. For the first time, the automotive competences of textile research and the textile industry are brought to attention by this brochure. As supplier of the automotive industry, about 50 medium-sized textile enterprises generate 4 billion Euros a year. As shown by research and transfer results, the textile research provides important approaches to solutions for problems German car manufacturers will be facing in the following years beyond e-mobility.
The publication can be downloaded as a pdf brochure under www.textilforschung.de/pdfcat/TechtexAutomotive2012en
In addition to aviation, building/ architecture and medicine, the German industrial research, leading in the sector of technical textiles with a promising future, also strongly focuses on the needs of the automotive industry. Without technical textiles cars would not roll off the production line. Without light weight textiles and hightex fibres, vehicles of the future would not even get farther than the simulation status. Which importance textile light weight elements, light conductive fibres, highly durable wovens or sensor-equipped textiles do have nowadays and in which direction the need of research goes, is laid out in the brochure “Techtex & Automotive” which is now available in English.
