Unique Vandewiele jacquard technology is proving central to research exploring the potential of hybrid woven technical textiles for a leading German research institution.

TW Special Report

Along with a number of partners, HOFZET® — the Application Center for Wood Fiber Research of the Fraunhofer Institute for Wood Research based in Hannover — has developed new forms of bio-hybrid fibre reinforced composites (bio-HFCs) containing the highest possible bio-based content.

“Bio-HFCs are already successfully employed in a range of sporting goods, such as racing cycle frames, tennis rackets and skis, where they have a number of advantageous properties,” explained technical textiles specialist Jana Winkelmann. “In particular, they have a low density, high vibration damping and flexible mechanical characteristics, in addition to the added benefit of containing substantial renewable raw material content.

“We are developing new and practical combinations of natural and high-performance fibers, such as flax, hemp and viscose with carbon, glass or polyamide in multi-layer fabrics. These have application-oriented properties with the potential to be scaled up for mass production, and are targeted at applications in both the automotive and construction sectors.”

One Of A Kind
The development work is being carried out on a special double-rapier weaving loom and Vandewiele Jacquard attachment — the only one of its kind in Europe — at the Open Hybrid Lightweight Campus (OHLF) in Wolfsburg, not far from Volkswagen AG’s parent plant. It serves as a competence and research centre for cost-efficient lightweight engineering and innovative materials and manufacturing technologies developed by Volkswagen and its industrial and institutional partners.

The OHLF weaving technology is enabling the Fraunhofer experts to cost-effectively produce materials with complex, application-specific textile structures and integrated functions, in widths of up to 50 centimeters.

“We are producing load path-appropriate combinations of the different reinforcing fibres and additional matrix fibers to produce hybrid textiles which will provide simpler handling and faster processing, as well as flexibility in achieving the desired mechanical properties in the finished product,” said Winkelmann.

At present, a key HOFZET research focus is on composite reinforcements with a thermoplastic matrix, or organosheets, which offer reversible deformation and recycling potential in comparison with thermoset composite materials. The weaving loom enables the integration of thermoplastic matrix fibers into hybrid textiles as perfect thermoplastic prepregs. These prepregs can be shaped to a required form and turned into composites using hot pressing technology. This approach enables a reduction of process steps, cycle times and production waste. Furthermore, the process allows new design freedom, which enlarges the component spectrum of fiber-reinforced composites. The shaping, for example, can be carried out simply and quickly through thermoforming in a die or in the clamping unit of an injection molding machine.

A robot-controlled fiber-spraying unit further expands possibilities, allowing continuous filaments and yarns to be cut to a specific length and simultaneously wetted in an air stream with a mixture of resin and curing agent and sprayed onto a shaping tool.

Construction
In another project, flax-based multi-layer fabrics produced on the special HOFZET weaving system are being employed to reinforce concrete.

Textile-reinforced concrete has already proved to be durable, formable in diverse shapes and suitable for lightweight construction and so far has been based on carbon or glass fibers to replace the steel which is conventionally employed.

The flax-based textile is embedded in the given component in layers. Its stiffness is variable, so it can be arranged in a desired shape and could conceivably be cast to create curved contours such as domes and rounded wall elements.

“The quality of reinforced concrete made with a flax fabric is higher than that of the reinforced concrete in bridges,” says Jan Binde, a scientist at ZELUBA®, a second department of the Fraunhofer Institute for Wood Research based in Braunschweig. “The matrix — that is, the structure — is so dense that harmful substances cannot penetrate the component. This results in a far longer service life of several decades.”

“The natural fibers mesh very well with the building material and we can control how the textile is fixed in the concrete. The textile’s specific surface is variable. A reinforced concrete bridge with a span of 15 meters would be about 35 to 40 centimeters thick, while its flax counterpart would be considerably slimmer at 12 to 16 centimeters. This saves a lot of material.”

HOFZET next plans to make various modifications to the unique, advanced weaving system, in order to manufacture special spacer fabrics, for which the Vandewiele Jacquard will also play an integral part.

A special feature of the jacquard is that every warp of the fabric can be controlled individually. This results in an unlimited variety of patterns. By using different patterns it is also possible to change the structure from one-layer to multilayer fabric in a single process.

“We have further ideas for such new materials for both the automotive and construction sectors,” Jana Winkelmann concludes. “Watch this space.”

México, Sede del European Textile Machinery Road Show

La Ciudad de México fue sede del primer día de rondas de negocios realizadas dentro del European Textile Machinery Roadshow y Puebla fue el escenario del segundo día de sesiones.

Jannyn Solis ( Textiles Panamericanos ) 

(De izq. a der.) Angela Lalatta, Directora de Amec Amtex; Peter Banham, General Representative de BTMA; José Cohen Sitton, Presidente de la CANAINTEX; Evelyne Cholet, Secretaria General de UCMTF; y Abril Appel, Directora General de la CANAINTEX.

El auditorio de la Cámara Nacional de la Industria Textil (CANAINTEX) recibió el día 20 de noviembre a los representantes de las 17 compañías europeas fabricantes de maquinaria textil , quienes tuvieron la oportunidad de presentar sus productos y servicios a las empresas mexicanas de textiles invitadas. Mientras que en Puebla, el día 21 de noviembre, el Club de Empresarios ubicado en el hotel Presidente Intercontinental fue el recinto en el que se realizaron las rondas de negocios con el apoyo de la Cámara de la Industria Textil de Puebla y Tlaxcala (CITEX). 70  compañías mexicanas se registraron para el evento de la Ciudad de México y 50 para el evento de Puebla. En cuanto a los fabricantes de maquinaria textil se contó con la presencia de seis empresas francesas, siete españolas, tres británicas  y dos belgas. La lista de fabricantes europeos incluyó:

  • BMS Systems
  • Picanol
  • Van de Wiele
  • Alliance Machines Textiles
  • Laroche S.A.
  • NSC Schlumberger
  • Rousselet/Callebaut De Blicquy
  • Superba
  • Trelleborg Coated Systems
  • Canmartex Catgrup, S.L.
  • Gomplast S.A.
  • Icomatex
  • Pirobloc, S.A.
  • Tacome, S.A.
  • Cygnet Texkimp
  • Garnett Controls
  • James H. Heal & Co.

En ambos eventos los organizadores del Roadshow llevaron a cabo un nuevo e innovador formato que consistió en speed meetings o presentaciones B2B rápidas. Esta nueva manera de acercar a los fabricantes de maquinaria textil europea con las principales empresas mexicanas de la industria textil, permitió capitalizar mejor el tiempo del evento al generar no solo sesiones más productivas, sino un mayor número de encuentros. Gracias al innovador concepto de speed meetings cada empresa mexicana invitada pudo tener una reunión de 7 minutos con cada uno de los fabricantes de maquinaria textil europea, logrando al final tener 17 reuniones de negocios. El objetivo de estas sesiones rápidas fue por un lado, que los textileros mexicanos conocieran la oferta tecnológica europea y, por otro, presentar y exponer sus necesidades a los fabricantes de maquinaria europea.

Cabe señalar que el European Textile Machinery Road Show en México tuvo la participación de cuatro asociaciones de maquinaria textil: Symatex de Bélgica, amec amtex de España, UCMTF de Francia y BTMA de Gran Bretaña.

En la Ciudad de México el discurso inaugural estuvo a cargo del Lic. José Cohen Sitton, Presidente de la CANAINTEX, quien agradeció a los asistentes su presencia y resaltó la importancia de la realización del Roadshow en México previo a la feria de ITMA 2019. El Lic. Sitton aprovechó para compartir con los asistentes que ya que han concluido las negociaciones de NAFTA, tratado que ahora lleva por nombre TEMEC, se tiene mayor certidumbre y, con la guerra arancelaria que se está dando entre E.U. y China, el mercado americano está teniendo nuevamente mucho interés por la industria textil mexicana.

También dirigieron un breve mensaje en la sesión de inicio, Angela Lalatta, Directora de amec amtex; Evelyne Cholet, Secretaria General de UCMTF y Peter Banham, General Representative de BTMA; además de un mensaje en video  por parte del Sr. Carlos Aguilar, Presidente de la Asociación Española de Químicos y Coloristas Textiles, quien no puedo estar presente en el evento.

En el evento de Puebla se realizó un desayuno de apertura del road show en el que también se dieron mensajes iniciales por parte de Angela Lalatta, Evelyne Cholet y Peter Banham, con la bienvenida por parte del Lic. José Antonio González Quijano, Presidente de CITEX, quien comentó que la asistencia al evento fue extraordinaria  y el formato de las sesiones muy práctico.

En esta ocasión se siguió un nuevo formato que consistió en speed meetings o presentaciones B2B rápidas.

Sobre cómo nació la idea del road show, Angela Lalatta comentó, “nace en el marco de SEMATEX (Consorcio de Asociaciones Nacionales de Maquinaria Textil), dentro del cual vimos la oportunidad entre los compañeros europeos de hacer algo juntos, fuera de Europa y fue así que el año pasado España, Bélgica y Francia se juntaron para crear un modelo de traslado de conocimiento hacia otros mercados. En 2017 fueron a Colombia con un formato de charlas técnicas, en el cual explicaban las principales innovaciones. Desde amec amtex vimos que esta era una muy buena oportunidad pero que podíamos explotarlo un poco más, en el sentido de que tanto los países invitados como los que viajaban, podían traer mucho más conocimiento y beneficios, y decidimos México porque es un mercado de gran interés, un mercado de fabricación próximo a E.U. y con gran potencial”.

Por su parte, Evelyne Chole señaló, “queremos compartir con nuestros clientes toda la gama de máquinas textiles, la línea completa, desde la extrusión hasta el reciclaje. No nos enfocamos en un mercado específico sino en todos los segmentos de la industria textil incluyendo hilado, tejidos, no tejidos, acabado, etc. Después de Colombia, elegimos México como sede del road show porque es un mercado muy interesante en el cual vemos que nuestras compañías proveedoras de maquinaria y soluciones textiles están vendiendo más, especialmente dentro de la industria automotriz”.

Se aprovechó el foro del European Textile Machinery Road Show para dar a conocer algunos avances de  ITMA 2019, la feria de la industria textil más grande e importante del sector a realizarse en Barcelona. Entre la información que se compartió destaca el que la feria contará con más de 220.000 metros cuadrados en los que se exhibirán productos de 19 sectores.

En el cierre de ambos eventos se realizó un cóctel de networking durante el cual los asistentes disfrutaron de un vino y canapés, y pudieron platicar con los fabricantes de maquinaria textil europea en un ambiente más casual y relajado para continuar platicando sobre posibles negocios.
