Awarded twice with the JEC innovation award, Textechno has a focus on instruments for the characterisation of the physical properties of reinforcement fibres, rovings and the fibre-matrix adhesion this time, said a press release by the company.
Textechno was founded by Herbert Stein, who held the position of head of development in the field of textile machine drives with the Berlin ‘Allgemeine Elektrizitäts-gesellschaft (AEG)’.In this position he established a great number of diverse contacts with companies producing textiles and textile machinery. At an early stage he realised the importance of quality control in the production of textiles. It was during this time that he developed his patented device of ‘low displacement’ force measuring gauge which later became a key component of the instruments produced by Textechno.
In 2004, Textechno tookover ‘Lenzing Instruments’ in Lenzing/Austria which until that time was a section of the Lenzing AG, one of the world’s largest viscose fibre producers. The product range of Lenzing Instruments in terms of testing equipment and online measuring technology represents a valuable addition to Textechno’s field of activities. Textechno and Lenzing Instruments joined under the new label of ‘Textechno Group’. (PC)
