Texas Tech University Hosts Major Textile Conference in India

The Institute of Environmental and Human Health (TIEHH) at Texas Tech University will host the 6th annual international conference on Advances in Textiles, Machinery, Nonwovens and Technical Textiles, (ATNT) 2009.

The event, held in collaboration with Bannari Amman Institute of Technology in India (BIT), will run Dec. 7-9 at the institute’s campus in Sathyamangalam, state of Tamilnadu, South India. The conference will feature papers from natural fibers to fashion design and nonwovens to technical textiles.

The conference is expected to attract more than 250 people from around the globe, said Seshadri Ramkumar, the organizing secretary for the conference and an associate professor of nonwoven materials at TIEHH. The international conference seeks to enhance professional interaction, enable future collaboration and improve business opportunities in fiber and textile disciplines.

To date, more than 90 abstracts from different parts of the world have been received. Leading experts from the United States, the United Kingdom, Turkey, the Czech Republic, China and other nations are expected to attend. Invitations have been extended to the Indian Government’s federal minister of textiles to inaugurate the event.

International and national organizations supporting the conference include Plains Cotton Growers, The Association of the Nonwovens Fabrics Industry (INDA), Industrial Fabrics Association International, Nonwoven Engineers and Technologists division of TAPPI, all from the United States; The Southern India Mills Association, Tiruppur Exporters Association and the Society of Dyers and Colorists (EC), all from India; and The Textile Institute from the United Kingdom.

Im Focus: ILA 2018: Laser alternative to hexavalent chromium coating

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.

When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...

Im Focus: Radar for navigation support from autonomous flying drones

At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.

Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
