In our journal TECHNICAL TEXTILES/TECHNISCHE TEXTILIEN we have been reporting for almost 65 years on the most innovative and exciting field in the textile industry –and we have been doing so with expert journalistic competence in the fields of textile technology. Over the past decades, the trade journal has accompanied all structural changes in the global technical textile industry and provided orientation on the most interesting developments.
From tradition ...
In 1958 "Technische Textilien" was founded in Dresden/Germany as a newsletter from the Zentralen Forschungs- und Entwicklungsstelle der Bastfaserindustrie (Central Re-search and Development Centre of the Bast Fiber Industry), later the Wissenschaftliches-Technisches Zentrum Technische Textilien Dresden (Scientific Technical Center for Technical Textiles Dresden), today the Institut für Technische Textilien GmbH (Institute for Technical Textiles), Chemnitz/Germany. After German reunification in 1991, the newsletter merged with the magazine “Industrietextilien”, which had been published by the Deutscher Fachverlag GmbH (now dfv media group (dfv)), Frankfurt/Germany, since 1985. The editor-in-chief at the time, Hans-J. Koslowski, was in charge of the journal. From 2004, he was also editor-in-chief of “Chemical Fibers International” (CFI), and was additionally responsible for the contents of the journal. Man-made fibers are, of course, of great importance for technical textiles – after all, hardly any technical textile can do without man-made fibers. Koslowski was also instrumental in founding the Techtextil trade fair, which has been held in Frankfurt/Germany since 1986 and is now firmly established as the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens. melliand Textilberichte, which has been in existence for more than 100 years and has been published by the dfv since 1993, also has a long tradition. nonwovensTRENDS is our trade magazine for all topics related to the nonwovens industry. melliand Textilberichte is also published in English (melliand International) and Chinese (melliand China). In short, with TECHNICAL TEXTILES/TECHNISCHE TEXTILIEN and the melliand trade publications, the dfv media group publishes the world's most traditional textile-technical trade journals!
...into the future!
Claudia van Bonn, who has been editor-in-chief of all publications of the dfv in the area of textile technical journals since April 2009, together with fellow textile engineer Mechthild Maas, is leading the magazine TECHNICAL TEXTILES/TECHNISCHE TEXTILIEN into the digital age. On the one hand, the rapid digital change increases the need for orientation and classification of events and, on the other, changes the reading behavior of our readers: texts that are short and to the point, and mobile readable articles are in demand. Now we have expanded our online publishing services and founded the www.textiletechnology.net platform: For the international textile industry, we have created an English-language platform that bundles information, technical innovations, market developments and reports from industry and companies. We keep you up-to-date on the world of technical textiles, fibers, textile technology and nonwovens under one roof. In the future, the portfolio of our topics in the nonwovens segment, which continues to grow in importance, will be broadly expanded. We, the editorial staff of TECHNICAL TEXTILES/TECHNISCHE TEXTILIEN, prepare all current topics from the industry for you and report on the trends and developments in our existing markets. As expert textile engineers with many years of journalistic experience, we provide in-depth information on all related topics.
We look forward to feed-back, suggestions and comments about our new platform TextileTechnology.
