A new robotisation project for textile manufacturing is launched.
Robotisation & automation of production processes in the textile industry, particularly in SMEs, is the main weakness identified in the sector. Currently, the textile manufacturing process is a very manual process and several Research Centres and enterprises have joined MODACC Fashion Cluster to find a solution.FITEX Technological Centre, EURECAT Research Centre, and companies such as ESCORPION and GAVI PUNT, together with MODACC Fashion Cluster have jointly launched the project called FASHIONAUT funded by the Spanish Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Tourism, MINCOTUR. The aim of the project is to digitize and robotize some manufacturing processes from the textile industry. The project has a 150.000€ budget, of which 105.000€ comes from the Spanish Ministry.
