How to use innovation and technology to solve clothing and clothing problems

Innovation and technology are essential for problem solving, as equipment and solutions are produced focused on increasingly optimizing the production process. In 2006, the European counterpart committee (Euratex) stated that it is necessary for the sector to survive in the so-called “knowledge economy”.

Since then, many more advanced and evolved processes have been produced. Industry 4.0 is already a reality, although in Brazil it advances more slowly, those who do not prepare may become obsolete and outdated.

If you want to use innovation and technology to optimize your industry, keep reading the article and find out how you can start this strategy!


How innovation occurs with technology in the sector and the agility of changes in industry 4.0

Innovation in the textile sector promotes competitive advantages, in addition to gains for the industry in general. In recent years, solutions have been developed that start from the choice of raw materials, to production methods with low environmental impact. The value added to the product increased and costs reduced, providing benefits not only for the end user, but also for the clothing manufacturers.

Smart fabrics

When it comes to fabrics, synthetic materials similar to organic ones have been developed and have appearances, textures and durability very similar to organic ones. Furthermore, nanotechnology has enabled thinner and softer pieces to be created, making it possible to even alter their structures to offer liquid absorption control, repellent function, thermal control, ultraviolet and even antibacterial protection.

Equipment that performs the service with less human interference, in less time

In the production area, equipment and even robots (sewbots) were developed to automate tasks and facilitate the customization of parts in less time (3D printer). Some machines can perform services that would take hours in a matter of minutes — such as mesh relaxation.

Others detect fabric characteristics and possible defects, providing more advanced and efficient quality control, reducing costs and improving the quality of the final product.

Industry 4.0 in Brazil

In Brazil, one of the biggest challenges in the evolution of Industry 4.0 is the cultural issue, since businesspeople tend to be more reluctant to seek new information and optimizations for their business infrastructure. It is not that the company must change equipment and processes all at once, everything must be done through planning and organization.

The investment must be made gradually, so that, as it returns, the company continues to reinvest, providing sustainable growth. So just take the first step.



The impact of the pandemic on these changes

During the biggest crises, innovations emerge. It has always been this way, since strategies and solutions to current problems are needed in these moments. The current crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic was no different. The changing scenario accelerated the need for adaptation and innovation, so that new social habits, new technologies, ways of working and even new regulations emerged.

Companies that did not adopt technologies had to implement them hastily and those that were already carrying out training and using new technologies efficiently came out ahead. Anyone who has not yet realized these needs needs to be careful not to let time pass too much.


Delta’s strategies to help the sector

Delta is a company that is always bringing innovation and technology to the textile sector and this time it would be no different. In addition to machines and equipment focused on the new trends of Industry 4.0, we also bring the DLT O3 Sanitization Station, which sanitizes clothes and items for stores, eliminating up to 99.9% of bacteria in various clothing items.

In addition to being effective against the Coronavirus, its technology does not damage products, has no smells or residues and, in 45 to 60 minutes, it is possible to sanitize around 15 pieces. We are constantly evolving and adapting, offering the best equipment to safely bring technology and innovation to our customers.

Technological adaptation is, without a doubt, one of the most important characteristics for companies in the sector and we are always willing to collaborate to make it happen.
