TU DRESDEN, ITM, INSTITUTE OF TEXTILE MACHINERY AND HIGH PERFORMANCE MATERIAL TECHNOLOGY

The ITM's research activities are focused on the fields of machinery, technology and product development and include, among others, the processing of fibre-based high-tech materials, carbon, glass, aramid, steel and ceramic fibres with a variety of different technologies, and the functionally integrated development of textile (pre-)products. The research activities are supplement by the modelling and simulation of structures and processes along the entire length of the textile production chain. Apart from high-performance textile machines for multiaxial stitch bonding, jacquard weaving, multilayer knitting, TFP and braiding, new possibilities in researching the processing of high-performance fibres for the development of technical textiles in a multitude of applications are offered by the establishment of an RTM laboratory, the installation of a vacuum injection plant for fibre composite panels, a thermal press for FRPC applications and a biaxial tensile tester for textiles.
