Today, Wednesday, November 8 and Thursday, November 9, 2023, the Association of the Bavarian Textile and Clothing Industry, Hof University of Applied Sciences, the Münchberg State Vocational School Center for Textiles and Clothing and the Vocational Training Center of the Bavarian Economy are hosting the 36th Hof Nonwovens Days in the Freiheitshalle. The two-day symposium is also supported by the Saxon Textile Research Institute e. V. (STFI) Chemnitz.
The Hof Nonwovens Days are one of the largest specialist conferences in Europe and promote exchange between industry and research. Participants appreciate the excellent opportunities to make contact with experts and to network.
The focus is on closely linking science and research with business practice. After all, what use is the best research if it is not transferred to companies, leads to product or process innovations and thus increases entrepreneurial success? The currently burning issues of recycling will also be highlighted.
The Institute of Materials Science (ifm) at Hof University of Applied Sciences and the Fraunhofer Application Center for Textile Fiber Ceramics (TFK) will be presenting their research projects. Institute Director Prof. Dr. Frank Ficker is co-organizer of the Nonwovens Days and will moderate the symposium. The ifm is participating with a lecture on Wednesday, November 8 from 10:45-11:15 a.m. on the topic of “Rotary needling for the production of tubes, for example for carbon fiber preforms for ceramic composites” and is represented as an exhibitor.
This year, we have once again succeeded in attracting renowned national and international speakers from industry and research to present product and process innovations, new processes and areas of application in the field of nonwovens.”Prof. Dr. Frank Ficker, co-organizer of the Hof Nonwovens Days
This year, the organizers are expecting around 420 participants and almost 100 exhibitors, including companies and institutes presenting innovative products and forward-looking ideas.
