drirelease (an Optimer Brands company)
A range of high-performance fabrics that offer an engineered blend of multi-denier, multi staple length hydrophobic and natural hydrophilic fibers for superior wicking, faster drying, and better overall performance compared to other technologies on the market.
Uniform Color Company, Inc.
A thermo-chemical laser marking process that can produce high contrast marks on synthetic polymers. This fast and inkless method is used to create custom, high-precision marks.
Natural Dye Printing
Fabric dyes created from medicinal plants including chrysanthemum, safflower, Phellodendron, asters, gardenia, Japanese indigo, cloves, pomegranate, green and Pu'er teas, Asian madder, sickle senna, Phellinus linteus mushrooms, maple, nut and mulberry trees, and others. Applications are for home textiles, fashion, and accessories.
Optical Positioning System (OPS)
ZSK Stickmaschinen GmbH
A system designed to create precisely embroidered designs with stretchable fabric and more specifically leather. Applications include automotive, apparel, accessories, and footwear.
A machine that combines additive manufacturing and injection molding. The machine is able to produce smooth, surface-perfect objects in materials such as silver, stainless steel, silicone, and copper. Unlike standard 3D printers, the machine only prints the outer shell of an object.
2D Fabrics with Depth
A range of lightweight acoustic fabrics that are specially designed to provide an optical depth, creating an illusion of 3D spacer fabric. This effect is achieved through a unique combination of construction and carefully-selected color that creates an optical contrast between the top and bottom layers.
ZSK Stickmaschinen GmbH
A technique used to create ‘moss’ and ‘chain’ embroidery, which are essential for creating sensors, touch buttons, or actuators. By using a special Chenille machine, a single conductive thread is looped through the fabric repeatedly to make a fuzzy, moss-like region.
A full range of sustainable dyestuffs, using textile fibers from used clothing and manufacturing waste to create long-lasting colors with a natural washed-out look. Applications are for apparel, fashion, home textiles, and accessories.
A state of the art inkjet printing technology for laminate tubes that targets and efficiently prints smaller run size orders with excellent decoration results. In this process, inkjet heads automatically adjust ink color density from translucent to ‘silkscreen’ appearance as per the artwork with efficient set-up, resulting in less scrap and no more cleaning ink stations.
VTT R2R Printed Circuit on Paper and VTT Voter Demo
Printed, hybrid integrated functionality on a paper substrate with a material-efficient roll-to-roll (R2R) manufacturing workflow for minimal environmental impact. Applications are for smart and intelligent packaging, disposable electronics and sensors, greeting cards, smart tags, wearable sensors, and health monitoring.
