From September 22-29, 2011, some 1,350 exhibitors from 45 countries presented themselves in 8 exhibition halls at the International Exhibition of Textile Machinery ITMA in Barcelona/Spain. Being the leading trade fair for the textile engineering industry, the ITMA 2011 attracted a great number of international visitors who gathered information about the latest developments and technical innovations for the whole textile chain. The following article will give an overview of some of the novelties in the high-performance narrow fabric loom and warp-knitting machine building industry.

The jet printing system Chromojet is a new interesting solution to print textiles with conductive substances. Compared to conventional processes such as screen-printing or ink jet printing, the Chromojet-jet printing process permits printing with special printing pastes containing various particle sizes in high application quantities. Using these advantages, conductive textile substrates with constant resistors can now also be printed. Accordingly, particularly printing of inter-digital structures is made possible. They can, for example, be used as sensors or as basic patterns for luminescent textiles. The printed conductive patterns have the advantage that they can be embedded individually in smart textile products without any negative influence on the textile properties. This creates a new basis for effective production of flexible keyboards, sensors and luminescent elements.

Moreover, conducting textile structures are a promising novel electrode material for large scale technical applications due to their three dimensional micro- and nanostructures. The microstructure can be designed by the selection of the filament size and number of yams, and the selected textile technology (weaving, knitting, braiding, etc.) to form the structured fabric. With the spacer warp knitting as well as spacer weaving technology are real 3d electrode structures available. Such textile structures may be used to develop electrodes and basic conducting structures for large area and flexible energy harvesting devices [8], solar electrodes [9-14] as well as to integrate interactive electronic devices into clothing [15-16].
