Industry 4.0 remained a buzz-word at the recent Texprocess and Techtextil technology trade shows in Frankfurt, Germany, with new tools allowing data to flow seamlessly from digital design and development all the way through the supply chain to help garment manufacturers cut costs, improve quality, increase productivity, speed time-to-market, reduce waste and stay competitive. Other highlights included virtual fit solutions, a new 3D body scanner, and robot-assisted sewing.
