Maximum of Automatization and Efficiency– Innovations of Technical Embroidery
With great expertise and experience in the textile machine construction, we have developed our so-called ZSK technical embroidery systems. These machines enable the free orientated laying of fibers and wires in a 2-dimensional space on flexible carrier material – even accordingly to the distribution of forces within a structural component, known as Tailored Fiber Placement (TFP).
Embroidery that Creates Connection Paths
With innovative applications like active wire and fiber supply systems, automatic pull-through systems for the carrier material or wire hit detection our technical embroidery systems achieve a top level of automatization and efficiency. Our technical embroidery systems are designated to lay wires, fibers or tubes on a fabric and place them in any shape required for e.g. sensors, heating systems, conductive paths, structural reinforcement integrated in any textile structure. Some examples for the application of this technology for Wearables, Smart Textiles and E-Textiles are sensors (temperature, moisture, stretch) or heating systems as well as fine wire areas as connectors for electronics or signal transmission.
Other technical embroidery technologies can be used to embroider conductive threads. Wearables, Smart Textiles and E-Textiles applications are e.g. textile electrodes in different required shapes and structure or conductive paths or pads for the connection between electronic and textile. By using an attachment for functional sequin devices, sequins with LEDs can be automatically placed on a fabric or garments as well as on baseball caps. The contact of the LED sequin and connection paths will be done by embroidery of conductive threads.
