New stretch leathers lean manufacturing process, new 3D fabrics manufacturing process and equipment
Summary
In order to develop comfortable and fashion products (e.g. footwear and clothes) one of the results is the development of a new stretching textile, whose final mechanical properties are among the main added values, along with aesthetical and tactile feeling. The new materials combine stretch leather with 3D fabrics. During the project a new manufacturing machine was developed together with a CAM system. A set of parameters based on past production quality checks control the main mechanical and thermic elements of the process, along with the devices, which verify their behaviour during machine operations by means of appropriate sensors. This approach enables the product developers to elaborate past results and take decision based on their verified quality.
