ICTN 2014: Bringing technical textile industry together
In recent years there is increased activity in the area of technical textiles and nonwovens in India in terms of new industries being set up by Indian entrepreneurs and leading MNCs putting up manufacturing or out sourcing from India. There has been increased number of workshops and conferences held in this important upcoming area to spread the awareness.
The International Conference on Technical Textiles and Nonwovens (ICTN 2014) will be held between 6-8 November 2014 at the Department of Textile Technology, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi.
The development of technical textiles industry is only possible in an environment that supports interdisciplinary networks between researchers, engineers, technicians and industries. This can be done by the re-engineering of a traditional textile company, by the integration of textile processes by a user company, for whom these new materials provide an improved solution compared to traditional materials. In this respect, there is a tremendous need for a common platform where experts from traditional textile industries, leading players in the current technical textiles industry, raw material manufactures, research organisations and academia can come together and discuss the current status of both domestic and global technical textiles and nonwovens industry. The conference will benefit the industries, which are looking forward to take advantage of the opened up global market and the research organisations and academic institutions to identify the areas to concentrate their R&D efforts and develop appropriate technology and products.
Papers will be presented by the leading industries involved in the technical textiles and nonwovens activities, experts from the research and development organisations and academic institutions. The areas of the papers to be presented and discussed will be on design aspects and manufacturing technologies for various technical textile products including technical yarns, woven, knitted, braided, nonwoven and composite products.
