Filidea Technical Yarns, the Filidea section specializing in development and production of technological, performance yarns in blends of natural and man-made fibres will showcase its R&D projects at Techtextil. The company has undertaken two important initiatives with other companies in the textile supply chain.
Filidea is participating in the European development project Trick in collaboration with 29 partners from six countries. A part of the European Horizon 2020 program, the project aims to reinforce the circular economy thanks to the development of a digital platform which is complete, traceable and available to operators in the textile sector.
Filidea has also established MagnoLab, a network of enterprises in the textile supply chain. MagnoLab boosts constant R&D activities. It aims to develop tangible solutions for the sector, to create values and to collaborate with regard to current and future demands.
One of the strengths of MagnoLab is the availability of a physical network of pilot facilities, installed in a unique plant in Cerrione (Biella), where it is possible to develop innovative products and processes using rapid, lean test cycles. This allows companies to concentrate prototyping activities to present to future customers and to experiment with solutions in terms of product and process to then transfer directly to the plants of the partners, and proceed to production at scale.
