Cinte Techtextil China to welcome new European exhibitors

Following the successful conclusion in May of the North American edition, the next Techtextil series fair, Cinte Techtextil China, will take place in Shanghai from 12-14 October, welcoming over 500 exhibitors from 23 countries and regions, including many new exhibitors from Europe.

Pavilions from Belgium, Germany, Italy, Korea and Taiwan, as well as Chinese regional pavilions, are confirmed. And with 12 product application areas, ranging from Buildtech to Mobiltech and Clothtech to Sportech, the product variety on offer for buyers covers the entire industry, organisers report.

Yarn product group

In the yarn product group, and taking part in the European Zone and the fair itself for the first time, is AB Svenskt Konstsilke, Sweden, and its China office SKS High Performance Yarn (Kunshan), who will feature its range of high performance yarns at Cinte Techtextil China.

Having successfully participated at Techtextil in Frankfurt for many years, the company would now like to extend this to Asia, where Mr Hans Janssen, Vice President & Sales Director believes there are a lot of opportunities. “We see further potential growth for our products in the automotive and industrial sectors in China and Southeast Asia. So far we supply mainly to global companies, but we are starting to supply local Asian companies as well where there is huge potential,” he said.

Featuring at the SKS booth will be assembled high performance yarns for optical fibre cables, twisted high performance yarns for use in automotive and industrial hoses and the paper felt industry, RFL dipped high performance yarns for application in ultra-high performance tires for personal cars, and precision wound high performance yarns.

Italian exhibitors

Also taking part for the first time in the European Zone is Italy’s Toscana Spazzole Industriali, a supplier of brushes for needle punching machinery. Targeting producers of nonwoven fabrics, manufacturers of needle punching machines and resellers, the company is looking to strengthen its presence in China and Asia through the fair.

Inside the Toscana Spazzole booth will also be three co-exhibitors including Ramina, a manufacturer of machines and turn-key plants for the nonwovens industry. Its products, including tunnel ovens, drum dryers, coating, finishing and cutting systems and end-line winders are suitable for the automotive, building, medical/hygiene and filtration industries.

Fellow co-exhibitor TEC TEX will be showcasing the company’s cross lappers and needle looms for manufacturing automotive carpets and geotextiles. After making its first sale in China a year ago, the company is now looking to Cinte Techtextil China to take advantage of the high potential in the country for fully made in Europe machines. The fourth member of this group is Bettarini & Serafini with its bematic-brand nonwoven equipment.

German Pavilion

This year’s German Pavilion will house some of the industry’s heavyweights including Trützschler Nonwovens, DiloGroup and Autefa. DiloGroup in particular will have a wide range of options on offer this year, having recently set up a compact line for recycling carbon fibre at the Institut für Textiltechnik in Augsburg, Germany, which will allow it to present product samples made from recycled carbon fibre material on request.

Johann Philipp Dilo, CEO of DiloGroup, explained: “The recycled carbon fibre sector has high potential since 50% of carbon fibre woven structures used in the aircraft industry, for example, are wasted. Regulations prohibit us from dumping this material and ensure we find new uses for it, including in aircraft, automotive and general transportation & technical applications.” DiloGroup will present its needled nonwoven products which can be applied in geotextiles, filter media, automotive fabrics, roofing materials, synthetic leather, natural fibre felts and other sectors.

Trützschler Nonwovens, is also as optimistic about the company’s participation in the fair. “Because of productivity and efficiency reasons, German and European nonwovens machinery is still sought after by the Chinese technical textile industry,” said Marc Wolpers, Sales Director. Specifically for China, Trützschler Nonwovens believes there are two key areas the market are requesting – cotton processing and thermobonding – which the company will address at the fair.
