Know-How Group Smart Textiles
The KNOW-HOW Group Smart Textiles consists of six companies in the Neckar-Alb region, which deal with the topic of smart textiles in different ways.
The goal of the group is to secure a competitive advantage through interdisciplinary cooperation. Every company is a specialist in its own field of expertise, but it is the combination of different textile technologies that makes it possible to meet demanding customer requirements.
Each company acts independently, but still has the opportunity to use the experience and expertise of its partners when needed. Also new is the direct collaboration with an electronics and software partner. As a result, the customer can not only be sold a smart textile, but also a suitable evaluation electronics.
The following companies are participating in the KNOW-HOW group Smart Textiles: Digel Sticktech GmbH & Co. KG, Eschler Textil GmbH, HB Technologies AG, nopma technical textiles, NTT New Textile Technologies GmbH and roma-Strickstoff-Fabrik Rolf Mayer GmbH & Co. KG.
Eschler and roma are manufacturers of textile fabrics.
The integration of conductive threads into the textile results in textiles that can heat or have sensory properties. Nopma works in the field of smart textiles with conductive coatings.
These can also be used for flexible heating elements or sensors. The company Digel is able to embroider conductive threads and NTT offers innovative solutions in terms of fabrication, 3D printing and contacting between electronics and textile.
HB Technologies AG is responsible for all topics regarding electronics and app control.
"Achieving more together" with this motto, the Know-How Group wants to present itself at Techtextil in Frankfurt.
