Energy efficiency focus for German technology at ITMA ASIA+ CITME 2014

Efficient textile production in terms of energy and resources will be the main topic of German exhibitors at ITMA ASIA + CITME 2014, which will be held from 16-20 June in Shanghai. Volatile prices and sporadic shortages of energy as well as commodities and stricter environmental legislation put textiles producers in Asia under pressure to adjust, Germany’s VDMA comments. Member companies of the VDMA Textile Machinery Association will demonstrate at ITMA ASIA + CITME 2014 that the latest German technology increases profits by higher energy efficiency. VDMA experts examined the energy saving effects over the entire production chain of three textile products and the major results of this in-depth analysis of German technology will be summarised in a brochure that can be obtained at the VDMA booth.

Efficient textile production in terms of energy and resources will be the main topic of German exhibitors at ITMA ASIA + CITME 2014, which will be held from 16-20 June in Shanghai.

Volatile prices and sporadic shortages of energy as well as commodities and stricter environmental legislation put textiles producers in Asia under pressure to adjust, Germany’s VDMA comments. Member companies of the VDMA Textile Machinery Association will demonstrate at ITMA ASIA + CITME 2014 that the latest German technology increases profits by higher energy efficiency.

VDMA experts examined the energy saving effects over the entire production chain of three textile products and the major results of this in-depth analysis of German technology will be summarised in a brochure that can be obtained at the VDMA booth. 

Energy-efficient processes

VDMA’s approach of the analysis is to cover the complete value chains from the raw material to the finished product, for example, a functional T-Shirt.

To manufacture this type of product, the process starts with spinning and texturising of polyester yarn followed by the warp preparation. To produce the textile fabrics, warp-knitting technology is used, such as an automatic warp knitting machine.

In the following process step of textile finishing, this material is washed, dyed black and finished, dried and finally completed by setting. For all these steps, from filament production to finishing not only the electrical energy consumed, but also the thermal energies like gas, oil, or steam have been taken into account.

German exhibitors

115 German companies have registered for ITMA ASIA + CITME 2014 and all renowned German manufacturers will be present at the leading trade fair for the Asian market.

The German exhibitors will cover almost all different machinery chapters with a strong focus on spinning, finishing, knitting, nonwovens, weaving and winding technology.

For visitors it will be easy and convenient to find and visit German exhibitors as most of them will use the German Technology logo.

Information and support

The first point of contact for trade professionals interested in German technology will be the VDMA information booth.

VDMA also provides useful information for visitors, including:

  • The VDMA ITMA ASIA Guide, listing all exhibiting VDMA member companies according to halls;
  • The 2014 Chinese edition of the Buyers’ Guide German Technology – The investment always pays off, showing in a neat matrix the production programme of all member companies of the VDMA Textile Machinery Association;
  • The VDMA textile machinery energy efficiency guide Conserving resources – securing savings-potential.
