rends in the carpet industry are changing faster than ever before: Carpets have become a fashion item and are used for just a few years. TV and magazines on interior decoration now have an impact on what consumers buy. This means carpet producers need a carpet-weaving system that is flexible and can keep up with the trends – like the Stäubli Alpha 500. One of the latest trends is towards low-density velour carpets, carpets with very low pile. Traditional velour looms can weave very fine high-density carpets but only at rather low productivity levels, thus these carpets are too expensive for the consumer who just wants to follow the latest trends. Features for very low pile The Alpha 500 Universal weaving systems enable the weaving of carpets with a pile height of 3 mm (the 4 m wide model) and 4 mm (the 5 m wide model). Weaving carpets with such low pile heights requires lancets in order to preclude the problem of tight pile threads pulling the top and bottom carpet together. Stäubli offers 6-mm lancets, allowing pile heights – before shearing – of less than 3 mm. Such lancets can only be used on a 2-rapier loom. Binding technologies for a ‘used’ look and easy folding By having some of the dead pile threads float between the pile, the pile height appears to be even lower, and the carpet back is made softer as well. The full 3-position Jacquard machine on Alpha allows the designer to vary the length of the pile floats to create a ‘used look’. A standard Rep 2/2 ground-weave

structure normally produces a rather stiff backing fabric. With the 2688 electronic rotary dobby on Alpha, much more flexible ground-weave structures can be used. These structures in combination with cotton wefts make the carpets very soft and easy to fold. Light carpets - Alpha offers decisive features for an economical production Traditionally, velour carpets are woven with very fine silk or viscose yarn, but the Alpha 500 series allow weaving also with thicker – and thus cheaper – yarn of any material. A reed density of 400–480 pile points per metre can be chosen to meet the trend of low-density, lightweight, foldable carpets. This low density, combined with a much lower weft density, results in higher production capacity, especially when one also takes the significantly higher weaving width of Alpha into consideration. And the flexibility of the machine guarantees that the cost advantages will remain intact: If interior design fashions change again next year, the same weaving machine can be used to weave traditional carpets with pile heights of up to 13 mm and more.

Dünyaçapında tecrübeli bir fuarcı olarak, bu sektördeki başarınızın sebepleri nelerdir? Biz şu anda sadece ve sadece tekstil makinelerin fuarını yapıyoruz, zaten bu sektöre yaklaşık 30 yıl önce tekstil yayıncılık ve fuarcılığıyla başladım.Tekstil makine ve teknik tekstil fuarı dışında başka hiçbir fuar faaliyetim yok. Dolaysıyla bildiğimiz bir sektör, bu sektörde ve bu sektörün yayıncılığıyla birlikte bildiğimce en iyi. Siz de yayıncısınız bilirsiniz siz de eski yayıncısınız. On senedir bu sektördesiniz sanırım.

ndia has been witnessing a steady rise in the export of handmade carpets and floor coverings since last three years. Carpet exports increased form Rs 7108.31 crore in FY13-14 aşağıdan okuya bilirsiniz. to Rs 8441.95 crore in FY14-15, and then to Rs 9481.36 crore in FY15-16. In the ongoing financial year 2016-17, carpet exports have already touched Rs 5786.85 crore till October.

The data on India’s carpet exports was given by Union textiles minister Smriti Irani in a written reply to a question in Rajya Sabha last week. The minister said that the ministry does not maintain state/UT wise export statistics. The government is implementing various schemes to improve the exports of handmade carpets and other floor coverings. These include 5 per cent Merchandise Exports from India Scheme (MEIS) Scrip on exports of handmade carpets and other floor coverings. In order to increase manufacturing and exports of the carpet industry, government is planning to establish mega clusters in Bhadohi-Mirzapur and Srinagar. It also intends to set up Indian Institute of Carpet Technology (IICT) at Bhadohi. In a bid to boost the exports of the carpet industry, the government announced 3 per cent interest equalisation scheme on pre and post shipment rupee export credit with effect from April 1, 2015 for five years.

Demek istediğim sizin sorduğunuz başarı sorusunun cevabı sadece bu fuar ile uğraştığımızdan kaynaklanıyor.

Turkey’s Economy in march Source: FMConsulting Team

Economy Inflation continues to decelerate In February 2018, consumer prices in Turkey increased by 0.73% in comparison to the previous month, and by 10.26% over the same month of the previous year (YOY). The highest monthly increase was registered in health (2.57%), followed by food and non-alcoholic beverages (2.24%). The only monthly decrease took place in clothing and footwear (-4.09%). The highest annual increase was in furnishing and household equipment (15.66%). The domestic producer price index (D-PPI) increased by 13.71% YOY, and 2.68% monthly.

for females. Of those with employment in this period, 55.0% were employed in the services sector, 19.5% in industry, 18.3% in agriculture, and 7.3% in construction. Foreign trade deficit soars 108.8% in January In January 2018, Turkey’s exports increased by 10.7%, while imports increased by 38.0%, YOY. With exports increasing to USD 12.5 bn and imports increasing to USD 21.5 bn, the trade deficit soared 108.8%, up to USD 9.1 bn. The high rise in imports was due to the rise in imports of mineral fuels, oils, and gold. In January, the main partner for exports continued to be Germany (USD 1.3 bn),

at 9.25%, the one-week repo rate (policy rate) at 8.0%, and the late liquidity window lending rate at 12.75%. The bank reported that the economic activity maintains its strength, domestic demand keeps improving, and external demand contributes positively to exports. The high inflation and inflation expectations create a risk on pricing behaviour; hence, the bank has decided to maintain its tight monetary policy.

well as an increased risk of an external shock due to the increase in the current account deficit, external debt, political risks and global interest rates. Nevertheless, the agency upgraded Turkey’s outlook from “negative” to “stable” thanks to the country’s economic and fiscal strength, its large and dynamic economy, and favourable government debt metrics. The report’s effect on the capital markets has been limited, as Turkey had already been rated as non-investment grade.

Inflation

Overview of Monthly Data

10.4% unemployed in December In December 2017, 3.3 million people in Turkey aged 15 and older were officially out of work, 581,000 less than in the same month of 2016. The unemployment rate was 10.4% with a 2.3-point decrease YOY. The youth unemployment rate in the 15-24 age bracket decreased to 19.2%. The labour force participation rate rose to 52.4% in total, and to 33.5%

Growth Rates

trailed by the UK (USD 747 mn), Italy (USD 742 mn), and Iraq (USD 639 mn). China was the country most of Turkey’s imports came from (USD 2.2 bn), ahead of Russia (USD 2.1 bn), and followed by Germany (USD 1.6 bn) and the USA (USD 1.1 bn). Central Bank keeps policy rate stable The Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey has left the overnight lending rate

FDI continues to decrease In 2017, Turkey’s current account deficit rose sharply by 42%, to USD 47.1 bn, mainly due to the increase in gold and oil imports. Another negative development has been that the foreign direct investments item, which is the most reliable source for financing the deficit, fell by 19%, down to USD 10.8 bn. On the other hand, the number of newly established foreign capital companies increased by 6.3% in 2017 to reach 5,930, Germany still being the leading country with 287 companies despite a drastic decrease down from 403. The main target sector of FDI was finance and insurance, followed by transportation and warehousing. The manufacturing industry came third with the rubber and plastics industry ranking first among its sub-sectors. The main source of FDI was Europe, followed by the Middle East, and the leading countries were the Netherlands, Spain, and Azerbaijan. Moody’s cuts Turkey’s rating Moody’s has downgraded the Turkish government’s credit rating to Ba2 from Ba1. This decision was based on the rationales that the institutional strength has decreased due to the erosion in the effectiveness of monetary policy and delays in structural economic reforms, as

he machine made carpet industry is a relatively young field of the Iranian textile industry. This industry began in 1972 and continued its operations limitedly until 1992. During the first 20 years of this industry, totally 14 manufacturing units of machine woven carpets were established and put into operation. Late 1980s, a mushroom growth of machine woven plants began in several cities such as Kashan, Yazd, Aran & Bidgol, Esfahan, Mashhad … During this period, the region of Kashan and Aran & Bidgol surpassed other cities of the country and achieved big successes in the field of the machine made carpet industry of the country, so that now from roughly 1050 manufacturing units of machine woven carpets of the country 850 manufacturing units operate in this region. The existence and operation of such volume of manufacturing factories of machine woven carpets caused this region to become the pole of machine woven carpets of Iran and one of the few manufacturing poles of machine woven carpets of the World.

Manufacturing annually 82 million m2 machine woven carpets, Iran is one of the 5 major manufacturers of machine woven carpets in the World. The main competitors of Iran in the World are Turkey, Belgium, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Turkey exporting around 2.5 billion dollars, and Belgium exporting roughly one billion dollars, are the biggest manufacturers and exporters of machine woven carpets in the World, possessing all by themselves more than 50% of the World market of machine woven carpets annually exporting 5.5 billion dollars. It should be noted that until 5 years ago, Belgium, exporting one billion dollars, and Turkey, exporting 960 million dollars, allocated to themselves respectively the first and second places of exportation. However, Turkey managed to increase widely its exportation volume to reach to roughly 2.5 billion dollars per year and take from Belgium the 1st place of the World exporter with careful planning, relying on absorption of domestic and foreign capitals, preparing and executing encouragement policies in the field of exportation, creating required infrastructures …

believe that such figure may easily increase to 150 million m2 during 5 years. Therefore, initial examinations shows that there are good manufacturing potentials inside the country which may well support export leaps of Iranian machine woven carpets. Taking into account consumption of roughly 65 million m2 machine woven carpets inside the country and around per capita rate of machine woven carpets of Iranians, on one hand, and low rate of increase in population, on the other hand, which prevents sudden increase in domestic demand of machine woven carpet in Iran during the next years, the domestic consumption market seems to be fully saturated and it is especially important to export surplus production of this product. Such aim is completely realizable because of the following: -Splendid several-millennium background of producing and exporting Iranian handmade carpets in the World, which may contribute to the good fame of machine woven carpets in World markets. -The number of countries manufacturing machine woven carpets in the World does not exceed the number of the fingers of two hands. (Although, this shows the limited World market of this product as compared with other products, however, it has the advantage of limited number of competitors and space of World export opened to the Iranian machine woven carpets.) -There are the market of roughly 400 million people of neighbor Muslim countries and the virgin market of 100 million people of other countries such as African counties and even China and easy access of Iran to the consumption market of many ones of such countries such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, China, CIS countries, Oman, Yemen …

These trophies reward companies who are selected by trade and pooling associations based on their exemplary performance, innovations and achievements in an area of specialty which is different each year.

Idéal Fibres & Fabrics Comines’ production site has been based in the North since 1993 and manufactures high quality polypropylene and polyamid based textured yarns for applications in the automotive, and commercial and residential building sectors. “We regularly invest in technology on the one hand, and in safety, security and working conditions on the other”, says Loïc Derôme, Operations Manager at IFCC. “For the past two years, we have invested around for million euros and, this year, we are

believe that such figure may easily increase to 150 million m2 during 5 years. Therefore, initial examinations shows that there are good manufacturing potentials inside the country which may well support export leaps of Iranian machine woven carpets. Taking into account consumption of roughly 65 million m2 machine woven carpets inside the country and around per capita rate of machine woven carpets of Iranians, on one hand, and low rate of increase in population, on the other hand, which prevents sudden increase in domestic demand of machine woven carpet in Iran during the next years, the domestic consumption market seems to be fully saturated and it is especially important to export surplus production of this product.

In a bid to boost the exports of the carpet industry, the government announced 3 per cent interest equalisation scheme on pre and post shipment rupee export credit with effect from April 1, 2015 for five years. Under Market Development Assistance (MDA) and Market Access Initiative (MAI) schemes of the department of commerce, the government provides financial assistance to the carpet industry for participation in fairs, exhibitions and buyer-seller meets in India and abroad. Support is provided for market study, branding, involvement in social and welfare programmes among others through Marketing Support and Service Scheme. Meanwhile, the government is imparting skill development training for carpet weaving and providing financial aid for functioning of carpet weaving training centres in the areas of Bhadohi-Varanasi-Mirzapur. Stipend is also given to the trainees. The carpet manufacturers and exporters are also benefitting with the refund of excise and custom duties paid on import through duty drawback channel. ■

Innovative Industrie 4.0 Solutions From Oerlikon

he Oerlikon Manmade Fibers segment technology is all about cost-efficient and high-quality manmade fiber production. With innovative Industrie 4.0 solutions, the company is setting new standards with regards to customer benefits. With the Plant Operation Center (POC), for example, manufacturers can maintain a holistic overview of manmade fiber system production – from the polycondensation, the spinning system all the way through to texturing and the downstream further processes. With this, processes can be optimized, production optimally planned and the product quality improved. To this end, the concept is already supporting the rising need for greater flexibility in production processes. The digital future is now!

Global competition within the manmade fiber industry and the changing expectations of consumers with regards to fashion detailing are today increasingly presenting yarn manufacturers with challenges. Special production runs, such as spun-dyed products and special yarn cross-sections, must be flexibly, quickly and efficiently manufactured in small batches; here, the production of standard products must not suffer. Optimum planning of product switch-overs must ensure there is no risk of waste, quality errors or over and under-production.

Modular system maintains workflow overview Here, the modular structure of the POC system guarantees customer success. With its more than 20 modules – for example, for quality control, maintenance and production planning and recipe management – the workflow management system can be optimally tailored to customer requirements. More than 250 successfully implemented POC-equipped installations speak for themselves. The primary focus is on the traceability of all process data in real time and the potential direct reaction to deviations in machine efficiency or product quality. Here, not only can data from the inhouse laboratory be directly integrated, but so can – with the corresponding link – the data from the downstream processes such as texturing, for example. Equally, the POC is able to monitor auxiliary systems such as air-conditioning, compressed air provision and the entire polycondensation system (CP).

As a total concept, the POC assumes a major share of the functions provided by a manufacturing execution system (MES), including the link to superordinate ERP systems and to corresponding interfaces for automation systems, such as package handling and storage in the spinning system. To this end, the control of automation systems within the spinning process is part of the concept.

4. Efficiency monitoring The statistics module continually monitors the production efficiency of individual products or entire machines and plants. In this way, production process malfunctions that can result is lower yields or high waste rates, for example, are identified early on and can be alleviated quickly.

Each individual module provides concrete potential production cost savings.

5. Alarms and maintenance planning As a result of managing the alarms and the maintenance planning tailored to the production process, the POC system supports the customer in minimizing downtimes and unplanned interruptions and hence also production waste. At the same time, personnel deployment and system utilization are optimized. Malfunctions in the plant are transparently displayed using monitors or mobile devices, allowing for swift alleviation and for optimum planning of necessary maintenance during the production process according to specialist staff availability. In parallel, shift planning is supported in keeping with actual staff requirements.

1. Production planning Production orders are optimally prepared and integrated into the production process, hence ensuring transparent production. With this, the over- and under-producing are avoided – even in the case of small batches. 2. Recipe management Machine settings optimized to the respective product are stored in the recipe management system and transferred to the production system error-free when switching products. As a result, the product quality is guaranteed even in the event of frequent product switch-overs. 3. Quality control The integration of data measured in the laboratory helps ensure high product quality. In addition to 100-percent traceability for each individual product unit (package) throughout the entire manufacturing process, a so-called cyber-physical system also provides fast identification of, and reaction to, potential quality deviations.

6. Performance monitoring For fast real-time monitoring of production plant efficiency, the data can be displayed according to key performance indicators on the customer network and also on mobile devices. As a result, the management is able to check on the system at any time – even outside the plant. However, if unplanned machine downtimes or process problems nevertheless occur, Oerlikon Manmade Fibers Customer Service experts can use the remote support function to log into the system directly and provide the system operator with swift support.

Upgrading existing systems using a POC A POC system is not only a process monitoring option for new systems. Connecting existing manmade fiber systems to a POC system is usually unproblematic. For this reason, increases in quality and efficiency and hence also in competitiveness can be achieved even in the case of older systems.

Total Quality Managment (TQM) – solution ‘filament’
