Development subsidy awarded to Factory of the Future

November 1st, 2014 / By: / Industry News

A consortium including TenCate and Norma was granted 1.5 million euros from the Province of Overijssel in the Netherlands for smart production in the Factory of the Future. The funding will be used to make the production of advanced TenCate materials, such as protective fabrics, even more efficient, sustainable and smart. One of the main activities of the consortium is the further development and introduction of a digital inkjet technology that was originally developed by Osiris Inkjet Technology, which is being carried on by TenCate. This continuous inkjet technology achieves extremely high production speeds and is ideally suited as a sustainable finishing technology for technical textiles.
