Within the scope of the activities of BUTEXCOMP, one of the most important technological transformation projects for composite materials and technical textiles, conducted by the leadership of Bursa Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BTSO), an interactive training that will increase the competitiveness of technical textiles was held.
Composite Materials and Technical Textile Prototype Production and Application Center (BUTEXCOMP), which is one of the most important technological transformation projects co-financed within the framework of the financial cooperation of the European Union and the Republic of Türkiye, and conducted by the Bursa Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BTSO), makes a significant contribution to the transformation of the sectors. Within the scope of the project, a 3D/Next Generation Weaving Technologies Training programme was organized, hosted by Bursa Technology Coordination and R&D Center (BUTEKOM).
Virtual Tour Made to the Facilities in Germany
Under the leadership of BTSO, within the scope of the Competitive Sectors Programme carried out by the Ministry of Industry and Technology, a live virtual tour was held to the Germany Lindauer Dornier GmbH factory in the 3D/Next Generation Weaving Technologies Training organized within the BUTEXCOMP project implemented under the roof of BUTEKOM. In addition to the live online presentation on textile technologies and 3D knitted composite jacquard design software for composites, the Tape Weaving Machine Laboratory in BUTEKOM was physically visited.
Companies Met with New Technologies
BUTEKOM Academic Consultant Prof. Dr. Mehmet Karahan stated that they carried out a very useful programme and said, “As part of the technical textile part of our project, we organized a comprehensive training programme on advanced technology production methods used in the production of technical textile and composite material preforms. The operation at the Dornier factory in Germany was directly broadcasted live to our participants. Our participants had the opportunity to see and watch closely the weaving technologies used in 3D weaving, tape weaving and other technical textiles. With this activity, we think that we have completed the lack of knowledge of our companies, especially in the textile sector. We introduced them to new technologies and provided important information to our SMEs in their transformation into technical textiles. During this journey, we expect our SMEs to benefit from trainings and other activities in a more competitive and more technical textile-adapted way.”
