This month, the Techtextil North America and Texprocess Americas Virtual Symposium heldtwo sessions featuring the latest textile industry trends, technologies and their applications.
The sessions began on November 18h with Readily Available Sewing Technologies, followed by Advanced Manufacturing Through Direct Write 3-D Printing on November 19. Registration is currently open for all sessions, and can be accessed here.
The monthly webinar series kicked off in October and provides attendees the opportunity to learn from the brightest minds in both industry and academia. Divided into two tracks, each is a carefully curated selection of sessions covering the most pivotal advancements in research and technology, exploring the latest trends and insights into the future of textile-related industries.
Readily Available Sewing Technologies seek explored latest technologies in sew and seal materials. It featured a panel of experts who gave a brief presentation on a specific technology in their wheelhouse, followed by a question-and-answer led discussion that dived deeper into the efficiency improvements, production improvements, and maintenance impacts that are currently available in the sewing and sealing marketplace.
The session on Advanced Manufacturing Through Direct-Write 3-D Printing explored the increasingly popular use of direct-write 3-D printing for the manufacture of a wide range of products for biomedical, electronic, and structural applications (among others). The session was moderated by Dr. NareshThadhani, Professor & Chair, School of Materials Science and Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology.
