Techtextil 2022

Ready – Let’s combine real and digital worlds for a sustainable tomorrow

At this year's Techtextil, we will present digital solutions for standard applications from the Finishing Toolbox, the simulation of continuous webs for a development of sustainable machine concepts and much more. Get your free ticket here and discuss your requirements in a personal meeting with our automation experts.

Scalable range of automation and drive

Integrated converting solutions from a single source

Whether winders, cross cutters, flying saws and much more – we can provide you with an extensive range of automation and drive solutions for any type of machine to ensure first-class processing of continuous material webs. High-performance converting machines can be realized quickly and reliably with standard components on the basis of three platforms: SIMATIC, SIMOTION and SINAMICS.
Implement powerful machine functions quickly

Unique: The Converting Toolbox

You want functional solutions that significantly reduce your engineering effort? The Converting Toolbox is a standardized automation package that we have put together especially for you. You can count on completely functional solutions and tried-and-tested know-how – perfectly documented and pre-tested. Ready-made software functions and applications simplify applications for the processing of continuous material webs.
You can select your preferred hardware platform depending on your application-focus

  • The SIMOTION high-end motion control system is available for drive-controller-based applications.
  • For PLC-based applications, standard or technology CPUs of the SIMATIC S7-1500 Advanced Controller family are available.
  • Drive-related converting functions are executed directly on the controller board of the SINAMICS S120 drive system.
Prismatic winding with SIMOTION

High-end winding of all geometries

The prismatic winding function is providing you a free add-on to the standard SIMOTION winder application. Used for maximum winding productivity on cores which are different from round in various industries.

The best of two worlds

Frequency analysis as the key to success

With Industrial Edge you can use the intelligence and scalability of the cloud directly in your production - simply, performant and without your data leaving production.


Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) analysis helps to identify process errors automatically. Via frequency analysis and the comparison of frequencies with a reference list containing the mechanical data of all the machine components the element causing the failure can be automatically identified with Industrial Edge. Learn more about how Industrial Edge brings digitization directly into your production!
