Textile 4.0

Textile 4.0


Add to Basket

Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things and digitalisation are just some of the buzz words that are fuelling innovation in 2019. These concepts have captured the imagination of technology strategists across all sectors of industry and commerce, and textiles is no exception.
Textile 4.0 (previously IoTex) provides readers with an insight into how this innovation is changing the textile value chain, from supply chain management systems to the latest in robotics, monitoring key technical developments across the global economy. There is an existing trend towards higher levels of automation and data exchange in manufacturing. The age of the smart factory is on its way and it will be controlled from the cloud.

Industry 4.0 • Internet of Things • Digitally Enabled Business
