Putting a Finger on Smart Tech at Texcare This Summer

Intelligent digital solutions will be the focus at textile care event this June in Frankfurt

FRANKFURT, Germany — “At Texcare International, June 20-24, 2020, the world’s market leaders will be showcasing their innovations, all designed to help optimize the procedures and processes in textile care,” says show management firm Messe Frankfurt.


The driving force in textile care, relates Messe, is what it describes as the, “Development of digital solutions into smart ones. This provides the umbrella for all four major themes at Texcare International: Smart Factory, New Business Models, Sustainability, and New Work – New Learning.”


The Smart Factory theme, it notes, covers the intelligent interlinking of production and data flows, so as to enable a high degree of automation in modern textile care.


The textile show management company indicates that the Texcare 2020 show will emphasize modern 3D camera technologies, RFID chips, the deployment of robots and artificial intelligence, all with an aim to help implement the vision of the fully automated laundry facility.


“Texcare International will, once more, be able to grow in terms of exhibition space and strengthen some of the more dynamic product groups, including, for instance, IT, which has gained greater weight recently, not least as a result of digitalization,” points out Kerstin Horaczek, Messe Frankfurt’s group show technology director.


Digitalization opens up new ways for textile cleaning services to get in touch with their customers, the show says, adding that, “New business models are now emerging that make it possible for consumers to make contact via online shops or apps, offering innovative collect and delivery services in collaboration with logistics companies.”


Messe says that, “The manufacturers’ agreed aim is to drive forward automation in the sector through artificial intelligence and smart data processing.”


Market leaders and product groups, it notes, will be evenly distributed across both halls. Those exhibiting include, amongst others, Alliance, Datamars, Ecolab, Girbau, Jensen, Kannegiesser, Kreussler, Lavatec, Metalprogetti, Miele, Milnor, Seitz, Trevil, and more.


At the show visitors will be able to see the inventiveness that exists in the sectors, ranging from new plant and machinery, washing and cleaning products, flat linens and workwear, to IT and logistics solutions in operation, Messe says.
