Twenty20- futureTEX

Research and test area for the textile factory of the future

The focus of the research and test area is on complex textile supply chains. The research includes four main aspects: (1) Horizontal and vertical cross-linking along the textile chain, (2) Self organizing logistics, self optimizing manufacturing and versatile assembly lines, (3) Smart maintenance, (4) Consideration of the role of human and the HMI in a changing production environment.

Emyployees will orchestrate manufacturing, logistics and maintenance by mobile devices and intervene where necessary. Logistic and manufacturing systems operate self-determining, i. e. they organize and optimize themselves. Demonstrators will show the versatility of manufacturing modules towards changing order situations, changing product portfolios and comstomized products.
