Last week members of the ATRG team attended the Future Textiles 2023 conference in Bristol (UK), which covered a range of textile related topics including electronic textiles, technical textiles, and sustainable textile manufacturing. Kalana Marasinghe (pictured above) presented a poster on the ‘Design approach to an automated electronic yarn manufacturing system‘, which is directly linked to his work designing and engineering the new automated soldering system for the ‘Production engineering research for the manufacture of novel electronically functional yarns for multifunctional smart textiles‘ project. Theo Hughes-Riley (pictured below) gave an invited talk on ‘Recent advances in the automated production of electronic yarns‘ which gave a more holistic overview of the recent developments on the project.
