Additive manufacturing enabling technology for the industrial digitalisation of the fashion industry
Seminar one: Additive manufacturing as an enabling technology for the industrial digitalisation of the textile/fashion industry.
The Textiles Circularity Centre presents its events programme of seminars, open labs and research in progress events which invite audiences to explore a vision of a future circular textiles economy for the UK SME apparel-fashion industry based on producing high value textiles from bio waste resource flow.
The programme will launch on 27th October 2021 as part of the Textiles Circularity Centre’s programme of events running from October 2021 to the end of 2024. Events are open to all and free to attend.
The first session ‘Additive manufacturing as an enabling technology for the industrial digitalisation of the textile/fashion industry’ is an online seminar and open lab with Professor Paulo Bartolo and Dr Cian Vyas from The University of Manchester. They will discuss the concept of 3D printing for textile applications, the main techniques, materials, limitations and opportunities, providing several proof-of-concept examples. In the second part, audiences will visit the lab for a live demonstration (online) and Cian will explain our capabilities, how to use the different systems, and the type of materials that can be used.
