Textile machinery: 26% less energy for the production of textile billboards

2015-02

Throughout one year warp-knitted fabric of roundabout 400,000 tons is produced worldwide for large-area advertising. This quantity would be sufficient to transform the overall metropolis of Guangzhou – covering at least 3,442 square kilometres – into a giant textile billboard. If German machinery technology of latest generation was used exclusively for the production of these textile advertising media, enormous energy savings would be possible for each individual process step. They sum up to 26 per cent compared with German technology one decade ago!

When Lego Figures Learn to Run

The Bergisches Land Children’s and Young Persons’ University in Wuppertal (“Kinder- und Jugenduniversität für das Bergische Land”, “Junior Uni” for short) provides a practical and forward-looking answer to the demands of increasing digitisation. Its extensive programme of courses gives children as young as seven a highly application-oriented entry into robotics, qualifying them – through a series of increasingly difficult stages – to the level of operating an industrial robot that was donated to the Junior Uni for learning purposes.
