More training opportunities for cotton industry in Germany

Apr 01, 2016

ICA Bremen has announced it will deliver its next ‘Cotton Classing & Testing’ training programme, followed by a new ‘Learning about Machinery’ training course this June in Germany. The six-day ‘Cotton Classing & Testing’ training will take place from June 14-21 in Bremen, Germany.

Karsten Froese of ICA Bremen, explains: “Our Classing & Testing training has always proved popular so we will be continuing to run it again. It will cover a series of modules delivered by ICA Bremen and the Bremen Fibre Institute (FIBRE); from classifying various growths of cotton to practical HVI training on the latest equipment - including Uster 1000 and Premier ART2. “This year, we have listened to feedback to take the training one step further through the introduction of the ‘Learning about Machinery’ training. Together, the two training courses will expand delegates’ knowledge of the journey of cotton to the finished product.”

The new, optional two-day ‘Learning about Machinery’ training course will be delivered in association with the Institute of Textile Technology and Process Engineering (ITV), Germany’s largest centre of textile research. This training will take place from June 23-24 at ITV in Denkendorf, Germany.

Uwe Heitmann, ITV, explains: “Unlike other textile institutes in Europe, ITV has a complete pilot plant so we can handle the whole process chain under one roof – from molecule or raw material to the finished product. This new, ‘Learning about Machinery’ training will give delegates an overview of the complete textile process needed to generate a fabric from bales. It will cover areas such as; spinning, weaving, knitting, non wovens, finishing and functionalisation and garment production. As well as lectures, there will be a focus on ITV’s latest research in the relevant areas and explanations of the processes directly at the machines – which should be a unique and valuable experience for the delegates.”

These training programmes are aimed at individuals who wish to gain an in-depth knowledge in cotton classing, testing and textile machinery.
