Texprocess: Full range of technologies for textile processing
Trade visitors from the fashion and clothing industry, upholstered-furniture manufacturers and all
processors of textiles will find at Texprocess, from 14 to 17 May 2019, an even broader range of
machinery and methods for processing textile and flexible materials.
Micro-factories show integrated production processes
Micro-factories – an approach to textile processing which is fully networked and allows individualised
products, while working rapidly, flexibly and locally – will be the focal subject at the coming
Texprocess. Texprocess currently features four micro-factories.
Focus on sustainability
Sustainability is one of the central themes of the upcoming Techtextil and Texprocess. For the first
time, the two fairs will be showcasing their exhibitors’ efforts towards sustainability. The Techtextil and
Texprocess Innovation Awards give prizes for sustainable textile innovations and processing
approaches. In addition, the Texprocess Forum will offer a thematic block exclusively around the theme
of sustainability in the textile and fashion industry, with an offshoot of Fashionsustain, Messe
Frankfurt’s conference about sustainable textile innovations.
Techtextil and Texprocess sharing a hall for the first time
For the first time Techtextil and concurrent Texprocess will be sharing an exhibition hall in 2019. In Hall
4.1 Texprocess will be showing its Digital Textile Micro-Factory, with one production line each for
clothing, shoes and the processing of technical textiles. In addition exhibitors will be featuring product
preparation, finishing, textile logistics, internal materials flow and textile conditioning, plus suppliers of
sewing solutions. The Texprocess Special Treatment Area will also be located there, with exhibitors
from the effect-finishing segment.
Also in Hall 4.1, Techtextil will be showcasing some of the suppliers of woven, laid web, braided and
knitted fabrics, coated textiles, and nonwovens, as well as selected suppliers of textile machines.
Suppliers of functional apparel textiles mark the transition to Texprocess. In the shared hall, visitors
will get an insight into the entire production process, from raw material to finished product.
Complementary programme with talks and awards
The Texprocess Forum in Hall 4.1 on every day of the fair will be featuring talks by experts on current
topics in the industry. Once again the Forum will be organised in collaboration with the Textile-Clothing
Dialogue (Dialog Textil-Bekleidung (DTB)), the International Apparel Federation (IAF) and the World
Textile Information Network (WTiN). For the first time Messe Frankfurt will also be bringing a section
from its conference at Berlin Fashion Week to Texprocess in Frankfurt, in the shape of Fashionsustain
Berlin, thus providing a bridge to the sustainable end product.
For the fifth time Messe Frankfurt will be honouring the best new technological developments through
its Texprocess Innovation Award. Entries for the prize are possible up to 18 February 2019 at
www.texprocess-award.com. Entry is open to both exhibitors at Texprocess 2019 and also to all firms,
institutes, universities, polytechnics, and individuals not exhibiting.
Sewing and clothing technology with a further sales plus
According to information from VDMA Textile Care, Fabric and Leather Technologies, a partner in the
Texprocess concept, in 2017 German manufacturers of sewing and clothing technology earned 7
percent more in real terms compared with the previous year, making this the highest export result
