Stäubli celebrates opening of new facilities in Turkey

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Mega Tekstil recently celebrated its 40th anniversary, and on this occasion Stäubli Flash talked with Erol Türkün, founder and owner of the company and third- generation descendant in a family of textile industrialists.

Stäubli-Turkey_new  building_entry_20160607After months of architectural project planning and intense working at the construction site, Stäubli opened its new facilities situated on the Eastern side of Istanbul – in 33956 Tuzla on 31st May 2016.
80 national and guests from abroad, including members of the board and committees of the different Stäubli production units appreciated the opening ceremony in the most modern building. The state-of-the-art facilities mark a milestone in the Stäubli history in Turkey.

The success story of Stäubli in Turkey started in the 60s with a renowned agent in order to introduce the extensive range of textile machinery in the promising Turkish market. Decades later, in 1995 it was decided to found Stäubli Turkey to fulfill a clear mission: serve the Turkish market even more intensively and extend step by step the Stäubli organization. Mr. M. Sinangil, as the first employee, moved into the rented headquarters in Istanbul at that time. He is still running the Stäubli organization successfully today.

2016 marks another historical cornerstone of the Stäubli history in Turkey – its 20 years of existence! During this build up of the group the Textile, Connector and Robotic activities came to fruition. All activities gained substantial market shares in their respective fields of business. Stäubli Turkey is now employing some 60 people.

Turkey is today, more than ever, the arch to Europe and has ambitious goals in terms of increasing its export statistics and expanding the local production and service industries to serve European – but also international customers. This offers great prospects to visionary mechatronics solution providers like Stäubli. In order to succeed, the local Stäubli team will be more than ever supported by the international Group to capture the chances offered by this market. Meanwhile all Turkish salesmen, administrative people and technicians on-site continue to maintain their common aim that is to satisfy all Stäubli customers throughout the country.

With this celebration the local team embarked upon the journey of serving customers for the next coming decades. Mr. M. Sinangil said: “we always believed in this country. This is why we made the investment in the first place. We look forward to actively supporting our existing and prospective customers going forward.”

Multi-generation partnership for Jacquard machines
“If you are happy with a supplier in a partnership”, says Erol Türkün, “you should stay loyal and not change just because of another offer with cheaper prices. Since we started using electronic Jacquard machines, the problems have been minor compared with what we had with mechanical types. And when we need support, we can rely on Stäubli’s very responsive after-sales service.” Türkün knows that can count on Stäubli’s efficient delivery of spare parts even for older machines installed years ago.

Mega Tekstil is one of Turkey’s biggest textile manufacturers and an internationally renowned supplier of a wide range of high-quality textiles including extraordinary curtain and upholstery fabrics for home furnishing, linens of various blends, cushions, table cloth, mattress ticking, sophisticated Jacquard fabrics, and even ultra-wide multiple-layer print cloth. The company’s production capabilities cover the spectrum from yarn preparation to finished home textiles. The heart of manufacturing is undoubtedly the weaving department, where 162 state-of-the-art shuttleless weaving machines are in operation equipped with either dobby or Jacquard shedding systems.

Mega Tekstil recently celebrated its 40th anniversary, and on this occasion Stäubli Flash talked with Erol Türkün, founder and owner of the company and third- generation descendant in a family of textile industrialists.

40 years ago Türkün was a pioneer in Bursa, and the company was probably one of the first to start using Jacquard machines in the mid-eighties. The first electronic Jacquard machines were then appearing on the market, but the technology was not mature, and Türkün began its Jacquard operations with mechanical Jacquard machines. But the company was determined to use electronically controlled Jacquard machines, and around 1991 Türkün was first in the Bursa area to procure such machines from Stäubli.

Today Erol Türkün looks back on 30 years of partnership with Stäubli. Over this time, several new generations of machines have been developed based on customers’ requests and subsequently proven in daily use. Mr. Türkün is fully satisfied with the performance of Stäubli’s electronic Jacquard machines and has continuously updated Mega Tekstil’s inventory with the most recent and advanced models. Without investing in modern technology such as rapier weaving machines and electronic Jacquard machines, it would have been impossible for the company to create so many different designs and constantly adapt to the latest fashions.

Jacquard weaving will remain a core business of Mega Tekstil, perhaps more because of the capability to vary the structure and effects than the colours. Such structures can include three-dimensional fabrics woven from several warp beams. “Creativity follows technology” means designers will always exploit the options offered by the machine. This rule is a key reason why Stäubli is committed to developing versatile products for Jacquard weaving.

Besides his optimism about future demand for traditional but highly fashionable textiles – and thus the continuing demand for Jacquard weaving – Türkün anticipates a shift towards technical textiles in all kinds of applications such as aircrafts, automobiles, construction, chemistry, healthcare, and many other industries. This will also affect weaving technology, which will increase pressure on both manufacturers of weaving machinery to develop new products and on fabric producers to adapt their processes. In order to bring out new machinery generations within a reasonably short time, machine manufacturers and textile manufacturers must constantly work closely together – and this requires partnership based on mutual trust.

At Mega Tekstil, the chances are good that the fourth generation will direct the enterprise or at least part of it towards technical weaving. Erol Türkün’s two sons and daughter have joined or are about to join the industrial or textile business. In all probability, however, Mega Tekstil will also continue to produce beautiful and creative Jacquard fabrics on a long-term basis – and a vital factor in both cases remains good partnership.

TENCEL® – next generation ecological fiber

Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Lenzing is launching a new TENCEL® fiber made from cotton waste fabrics to drive ‘circular economy’ solutions in the textile industry.

The new generation of lyocell fibers will be the most ecological wood-based fiber on the planet – combining cotton waste recycling with Lenzing’s pioneering closed-loop TENCEL® production on a commercial scale. Lenzing is pushing new frontiers in ecological innovation and circular economy.

FasernLenzing achieved another milestone in its innovation heritage in the textile industry by developing a TENCEL® fiber based on cotton fabric waste. Lenzing is the first manufacturer worldwide to offer such cellulose fibers incorporating recycled materials on a commercial scale. TENCEL®, already a market success as an eco-friendly fiber, is now achieving another key milestone by creating from natural resources what is likely the most sustainable fiber. TENCEL® from cotton waste fabrics will further build Lenzing’s reputation as a leader in the field of environmental technology and will push new solutions in the textile industry towards circular economy by recycling waste. “For Lenzing, developing circular business models in the fashion industry ensures the decoupling of business growth from pressure on ecological resource consumption. It reduces the need to extract additional virgin resources from nature, and reduces the net impact on ecological resources,” says Robert van de Kerkhof, CCO of Lenzing.

TENCEL®, the most ecological fiber from nature, now featuring circular economy
TENCEL® has already been awarded the EU award for the most eco-friendly production process based on 99.7% closed loop circulation in the production and use of bio-energy. The renewable raw material of wood from sustainable forestry is another key advantage in terms of sustainability for TENCEL®. The latest next-generation TENCEL® fiber combines the best of two worlds – recycling cotton waste fabrics and using the most sustainable TENCEL® technology – to create one of the most ecological wood-based fibers on the planet. The recycling of cotton waste fabrics into virgin textile TENCEL® fibers offers a practical solution to enable circular economy in the apparel industry.

New approaches to marketing
The new TENCEL® fiber introduces an innovative approach to marketing. The fiber is not sold directly to yarn or fabric manufacturers. It will be exclusively offered to leading retailers and brands that in turn could produce their garment collections in the most sustainable way by engaging the right value chain partners. This ensures close co-operation and transparency in the entire textile value chain.

NachhaltigkeitA new type of identification procedure is employed to guarantee transparency for the TENCEL® fiber. This allows Lenzing to assure retailers that the TENCEL® fibers in the garment are indeed the most eco-friendly wood-based fibers.

At the current time, the fiber is being tested with selected brand manufacturers and retailers and is at the point of being introduced to the market. “Close cooperation with the sustainability leaders in the retail business gives us the chance to find common solutions to overcome sustainability related challenges in the fashion industry and effectively implement circular economy concepts,” van de Kerkhof explains. “The next generation TENCEL® fiber is revolutionizing the fiber industry and has the potential to significantly change consumers’ behavior,” van de Kerkhof continues.

Lenzing redefines softness in textiles

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Without softness there is no comfort

Softness is the key to comfortable textiles. With Lenzing Modal®, MicroModal® and MicroModal® AIR fibers, softness can be obtained in textiles in a completely natural way. The higher the share of MicroModal® or MicroModal® AIR in the textile, the softer and suppler it becomes. Using a variety of different test methods, Lenzing has set a new standard, which gives new definition to softness and shows how Lenzing Modal® fibers can change a textile’s degree of softness. This test method combines the well-known ring method with a new technology specially developed for textiles with Lenzing – the TSA method (Tissue Softness Analyzer).

 

ILK RESIM

Measurable softness

 

Softness is the key to comfortable textiles. And this is something the user has to be able to experience, both when deciding to buy a textile and when using it. Judging softness is an individual, dynamic process that results from the interplay between textiles and the skin. To depict this complex sensory interaction in an objective way, scientists are working on physical methods to measure softness.

MicroModal-«_softness

Softness is an individual feeling. The goal is to make it measurable.

MicroModal is the winner
Textiles of MicroModal attain the highest level of softness. Thanks to the low fiber rigidity and fiber cross-section, Lenzing Modal fibers are natural softeners. In 100% of cases, the fibers develop pure softness and produce wonderful textiles with outstanding comfort. They also last longer since textiles made with Lenzing Modal remain as soft as they were when they were new and do not harden after several washes.

Tactile softness
Physical measuring methods are one way to determine softness. However, the human hand should serve as the primary method to test softness. And here again, in touch tests MicroModal was convincing. A panel of 17 textile experts felt MicroModal and declared it to be the softest fiber among cotton, viscose, and Lenzing Modal fibers.

Contract fabrics from Akarca Textile

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Akarca Textile produces fabrics for decorative draperies, having its own designs and works with authoring companies in abroad.

Products that were designed by the company on the patterns purchased from abroad are reinterpreted and than sold to 70 countries for draperies. Irfan Bahadir, General manager of Akarca Textile, located in Bursa, informed about his company and his views on COHO fair.

Birol BahadırWhat is your position in the contract business as Akarca Textile?
We produce mainly fabrics for decorative draperies. Our product range covers varieties such as fabrics for background, for blinding and other kinds demanded by contractors. Actually, we produce fabrics for authoring companies in the world. They offer their collections as a book, and then we make annual contracts with them. We export to 70 countries in total.

How do you develop your products? Do your own patterns interpret in house?
Supply and demand is important in this matter. Mostly we buy patterns from abroad and interpret them in our design studio. The motives are then colored before offering to our buyers. Some of the authoring firms demand us when they saw our patterns in fairs. We may re-interpret some of our motifs for our buyers. We adjust the sizes, colors and structures of patterns as requested.  We do coupon works.

_DSC1171 _DSC1216 _DSC1269 _DSC1274

How are your activities in export markets?
Exporting is a must in our business. You have to follow developments in foreign markets and seek for new motifs, qualities and yarns to produce new offerings for your customers.

_DSC1305 _DSC1309 _DSC1353_1 _DSC1361_1

Which markets do you want to enter?
We also were affected negatively by the problems in other sectors in the world. However, our business was not so bad. We headed to American and Canadian markets, rather then European markets. We keep our studies in these markets. But, European market is the most important. Fairs and visiting buyers are important in this regard. We have been in abroad at least three months each year.

_DSC1375_1 _DSC1387_1 DSC_2072

What do you think about the future of your industry?
The sector will maintain its position in the future. Especially our proximity to Europe is important. We can produce every product that has been produced in Italy. We make quality fabrics. The image of Made in Turkey has been settled.

DSC_2119 DSC_2128

What do you have to say about COHO fair’s impact on your industry and the future of the fair?
At this first step, we do not expect much but it should be emphasized that the fair will make great strides in the future. It is especially beneficial for businesses in Bursa, because demand in contract business sector is on the rise. I think that, technical fabrics will be on the agenda more in the future. Customers are demanding special fabrics, having certificates for certain specifications, such as flame-resistant, anti-bacterial etc. We are now able to produce these kinds of fabrics in Bursa. So, this is another plus point for this fair. We are going to take our place in COHO fair with our special products used in the hotel industry.

Heimtextil “Theme Park” sparks the spirit of research

Tags: , , , , , ,

 “Explorations” presented as overarching trend theme

 Carlin International/Exalis present the trends for 2017/2018 as well as the design of the new “Theme Park”

Heimtextil 2017 invites us on a journey into the unknown, full of curiosities and fascination. With “Explorations”, the “Theme Park” will provide exactly the right theme for Heimtextil from 10-13 January 2017. A first glimpse of the new furnishing trends for 2017/18 was presented by those responsible for organizing the trade fair in a discussion session transmitted live across the world on 6 September 2016 at the Hotel Lindenberg in Frankfurt. Those present included Natalie Weinmann from the design agency Carlin International/Exalis, responsible for the conception and design of this year’s “Theme Park”. With Anne Marie Commandeur from the Stijlinstituut Amsterdam and Felix Diener from the design studio of the same name, additional members of the Heimtextil Trendtable also took part in the conference and gave their prognoses for textile interior design for the coming season.

The Heimtextil trend experts have examined the disciplines of retail, technology, hospitality, transport, work and home and made numerous new discoveries. Bearing in mind the key phrase “marketing decoding”, the book informs readers which new aspects could be of benefit for companies and their brands in future. Pioneering projects and start-up ideas are presented and creative suggestions and unconventional approaches offered. In doing so, the trend researchers are answering the ambitious call for exploration and the desire to tap into unknown worlds. Creative self-observation and the need to investigate and understand how people function also play an important role. “Based on the theme ‘exploration’, we have looked for materials, textures and elements to bring innovations to life. In doing so, we discovered fabrics that gave rise to surprising combinations when merged with other materials. It is these nine fabrics from unknown worlds that captivate us. At the same time, the natural aspects reveal an unexpected sensuousness,” explains Natalie Weinmann from the design agency Carlin International/Exalis. Both the new trend book that will be presented during the conference and the “Theme Park” at the trade fair invite visitors to carry out their own explorations and discover new production and marketing approaches. An initial overview of the statements provided by the trend researchers is already available online: background information is supplied and design projects presented at www.heimtextil-theme-park.com.

Trade fair highlight “Theme Park” in hall 6.0
As the world’s largest specialist trade fair for home and contract textiles, Heimtextil functions as a barometer for trends and yardstick for quality textiles with excellent design and innovative functionality. This is why Messe Frankfurt got the Heimtextil trend underway in 1991 and has consistently expanded it ever since. Every year, a Trendtable with international members investigates the most important universal trends and supplies product developers, creative teams, furnishers and designers with valuable advice and reliable trend statements. At Heimtextil 2017, those responsible for organising the trade fair will continue the trend concept and implement the “Theme Park” as the central trend-related and inspirational area of Heimtextil in Hall 6.0. The conception and realisation of this showcase at the trade fair, as well as the design of the accompanying book and new website, will be managed by the French trend agency Carlin International under the leadership of Exalis from Berlin.

Heimtexil Theme Park “Explorations” – Trends 2017/2018 –
an overview of the themes:
Virtual Explorations
1 vitualDigital processes enable a new interpretation of transparency. Thanks to a mother-of-pearl-like shimmer, fabric is brought to life in a vibrant way. Films and silk are reminiscent of reflections in water thanks to dazzling holographic brilliance. Extravagant floral patterns, embroidery, jacquards and lace dominate and give rise to astonishing fascination. A new form of digital exoticism is born. Structures from cell organisms inspire and convey a new understanding of 3D. Organic-animal structures give technical materials a sensuous-poetic flexibility. Colours are lively and reminiscent of water.

Cultural Explorations
A new urban multiculturalism unfolds: various cultural influences merge to form a unique multinational in-culture. This transformation can also be seen in interiors. A focus on particular cultures is increasingly disappearing. Traditional techniques are being modernized and merged together, resulting in highly modern and luxurious modifications. Pigment colors merge with urban shades to form a universal ethnic look.

cultural-modernized-tradition cultural-urban-ethniccultural-couleurs

Planetary Explorations
planetary-couleur In an unknown, interplanetary world, raw materials are used and the interior becomes a mineral itself. A new, magical brilliance is extracted from the materials, which are given protective characteristics. From this wealth of materials ariseplanetary-protection-souple material extracts and textures hitherto unknown. New wipe techniques form fine structures of mineral-like delicacy. The principle of controlled chances leads to new kinds of shading. Deliberately voluminous materials are reminiscent of the surface of the moon and serve as soft, protective shells. The color palette plays with light and dark and oscillates between bright white and ash-cultured tones.

Natural Explorations
The way to rediscovering urban aspects takes us through nature. The use of natural materials in industrial natural-couleurmanufacturing processes is more contemporary now than ever before – not least out of respect for our planet. But this isn’t enough: the interior is entering into a symbiosis with nature. Touch is dominated by natural fiber effects such as wood-like reliefs or bark structures. The materials make use of geometric elements in order to imitate the plant world. Details from the animal world are incorporated with the help of textures. This gives rise to camouflage patterns, both original and finished, from the animal and plant world. Intensive green tones mix with colors inspired by tree bark and earth.

Brentano’s Annual Color Forecast: 2017

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Bold colors unify adventure and optimism

2Wheeling, IL. — As the year winds down and industry trends begin to shift, Brentano’s designers predict what colors will emerge in the upcoming year. In preparation for new development, the design department evaluates past products, collects data from the sales team and closely observes the forever-changing world of design.

Brentano’s eighth annual color forecast presents three new captivating colors (Coral, Chartreuse and Bloom), a powerful colorless shade (Almost Black) and reintroduces classic hues (Peacock and Elephant) that will dictate the future of design.

3Coral – With a cheeky personality and bold flair, Coral’s pop of color is a powerful punch. The zesty accent – uplifting and bright – adds a splash of excitement to the traditional household.

Elephant – First forecast by Brentano in 2016, Elephant’s popularity carries over into 2017. This dependable neutral highlights its practicality by complementing both warm and cool interiors.

Chartreuse – The crisp hot hue Chartreuse evokes refreshing warmth in a unique and stylish way. The harmonious hue – a fusion of green and gold – perfectly balances beauty with brilliance.


4Brentano_ColorForecast_2017_Chartreuse

5Peacock – Polished Peacock, calm and cool, remains as current as when it appeared in Brentano’s 2016 forecast. The jewel-toned teal – more romantic than sapphire but fresher than navy – fills a room with peace and serenity.

Bloom – Glowing with grace, Bloom is cultivated for its flourishing beauty. This fashion forward pinkness is comfortable being soft, with a dominant newfound voice in design.

Almost Black – Elegantly refined and dignified, this colorless shade displays confidence. Almost Black, pair-able with almost any color, makes for a bold accent; or can be luxurious all on its own.

6The Brentano Design studio, led by Iris Wang, celebrated 25 years in 2015. The textile house has grown from a modest eight patterns in 1990 into an international source for polyurethane faux leather, outdoor, Crypton, Nano-Tex and GreenShield-finished, eco-friendly and fire retardant products. The carefully curated line reflects Iris’ lifelong study of fine art, nature and Asian philosophy in beautiful, high-performing solutions for the contract, hospitality, healthcare and residential markets.
