ITMA 2019 will be showcase for smart technologies

The organisers of the ITMA textile machinery exhibition have announced that the next edition of the event, which takes place in 2019, will have a strong focus on the smart garment technologies that look set to revolutionise the industry. 

CEMATEX, the European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers, has said that automation, especially in an integrated textile and garment manufacturing chain, will help the clothing industry address concerns related to short production cycles and sustainable business practices. 

Fritz Mayer, president of CEMATEX, said: “The garment making industry is labour intensive and associated with low productivity. Things are set to change. Recently, there has been much publicity about ‘sewbots’, considered as a major breakthrough in garment automation. Manufacturers fast enough to ride the digital wave will find new opportunities and gain an edge over their competitors."

ITMA 2019, which will be held from June 20-26 in Barcelona, Spain, will showcase innovative garment technology. This will include: 

•Software and systems for product planning, design and related automation technology for garment making;
•Equipment for product development;
•Machinery for shrinking, fusing, cutting preparation, cutting and related automation technology;
•Machinery for sewing, quilting and linking;
•Sewing supplies and consumables;
•Machinery and equipment for product finishing;
•Auxiliary machinery for the garment making industry.
