On 19/07/2018 Technores research team started the R&D project “Advanced design system from yarn to garment (DIGIYARN)” together with four different partners: Ecafil Best S.p.A. Industria Filati (coordinator), GM Industry S.r.l., SMI Tessuti S.p.A. and Industrial Engineering dept. Of the University o Florence (DIEF). The project was co-financed by Tuscan Region with POR FESR 2014 – 2020- CALL N. 2: R&D project of SME, D.D. n. 7165 dated 24/05/2017. POSTER_DIGIYARN – TECHNORES
The main task of the project is the development of a new process of creating knitwear with desired characteristics using an IT-Integrated platform specifically created for the application, capable of defining the knitwear garment from the yarn and trough all the finishing processes to the final product both on a design point of view and on a production control approach.
The IT-integrated platform will include a specifically developed CAD software which will create 2D and 3D models of knitwear parts based on dyed yarns, directly controlling the dying process systems in order to produce yarns with exactly the needed colour patterns.
The CAD software is already in beta testing version and is already capable of creating drawings on garment and define the yarn subsequent color pattern controlling the dying systems in order to produce exactly the desired pattern.
The project will end in 2020.
