Texcare International, the leading trade fair for innovative textile care that is set to take place from 11-15 June in Frankfurt, is on course for growth, according to organisers.

For the first time the international industry will be showcasing its innovations and new developments across the whole range of modern textile care to an international trade public on some 40,000m2 of exhibition space, which shows an increase of around 30% compared to 2012.

“We are very glad to see the strong demand for Texcare 2016. In this way the trade fair will be offering its visitors an even wider and more international range. Through this growth Texcare is underlining its importance as a leading international trade fair for the industry,” said Wolfgang Marzin, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Messe Frankfurt.

Growing textile-care market

According to Messe Frankfurt, the growth of Texcare is reflected in the strong and growing textile-care market in Europe. “For a number of years we have been observing the trend that more and more companies are expanding their product range and developing it further,” explained Günter Veit, Chairman of VDMA Garment and Leather Technology.

“Major drivers of growth here are the continued digitalisation in textile care and rising requirements expected, for example, of hygiene. By adding Hall 9, Texcare International will be able to respond even better to this growing product range. As CEO of a company, I can only recommend that visitors ensure they have enough time for the bigger range of products and services on show. A day is definitely not enough.”

On display

Texcare International will offer the latest solutions for modern, professional textile care, including plant and machinery, cleaning processes and materials, rental textiles, job and protective clothing, information technologies and services.

Its product groups and market-leader companies will be distributed equally across both halls. Thus, among companies exhibiting in Hall 8.0, will be Ecolab, Girbau, Jensen, Lavatec, Multimatic Ilsa and Pellerin Milnor, and in Hall 9.0 visitors will fins companies like Alliance, Kannegiesser, Kreussler, Miele and Veit.

Laundry 4.0

The megatrend at Texcare International is the digitalisation of processes. This development is also reflected in a growing range of information-technology products at the trade fair.

Thanks to modern identification technologies such as RFID, today clothes and textiles can be allocated to the customer problem-free in the laundry. This way, goods flows run automatically, and even the intelligent wardrobe on the customer’s premises can trigger an order. That all processes, machinery and data are linked and optimally visualised is a prerequisite for the smart fabric of the future.

Digital control is also the connecting link for the further top topics at Texcare, which include sustainability, innovative textiles and their treatment, and changes to job profile. Sustainability in textile care is very complex. It begins with the production of the fibre and ends in the laundry with the energy consumption of the machinery, the measurement of the cleaning materials, and the water consumption. Here too the use of intelligent technologies and sensors promises potential optimisation.
