Excellence in textile research. The DITF Denkendorf represents Germany's largest textile research institute, covering fundamental to application based research over the whole textile production process, from raw material to the finished product. The composites research department at DITF develops materials and processes for high performance fibre reinforced composites, for application in aerospace, transportation and civil and mechanical engineering. At DITF, the whole process chain is available, from design and simulation to textile and preform processing, to component manufacturing with infusion or press techniques and testing. Further research includes biological and medical textiles, integrated functional textiles and application-oriented finishings for textile structures.
