Tipp-Ex can help correct spelling mistakes. Where textiles are concerned, however, an error leads to disposal.

Cue a startup from Portugal with its blend of high-resolution cameras, sensors and artificial intelligence.

Their system can be installed on circular knitting machines, where it monitors production – normally responsible for 80% o mistakes – in real time.

At the first sign of error, ongoing processes are stopped and pictures of the error stored with all other data in the central production system.

In this way almost 100% of mistakes could be avoided, meaning less time spent on manual inspection. The system promises to generate €10,000 additional profit per machine each year.

Less waste in the textile industry is good for the environment. As is this dyeing process.
