Textile Manufacturing

Textile manufacturers play a critical role in both consumer and industrial markets. The industrial market is especially diverse, including specialized materials for a wide range of applications, such as hygiene, agriculture, automotive, filtration, wearables, and medical.

Regardless of whether textile manufacturers are weaving, knitting, embossing, printing, laminating, slitting, or cutting, they are challenged to increase throughput and reduce scrap and trim while delivering a consistent, high-quality product for their clients.

Textile manufacturers rely on production monitoring and continuous improvement solutions like Vorne XL to provide real-time and historical insights into critical KPIs such as OEE, TEEP, line speed, changeover time, labor efficiency, quality, and real-time job status, enabling them to proactively manage their lines and ensure they are operating efficiently, effectively, and profitably.

Vorne XL moves textile operations far beyond manual data capture to deliver critical insights for driving process improvement and actualizing change with over 100 metrics and 20 data dimensions.
