Computer Aided Engineering and Mechatronics in Fabric Handling

A National Textile Center Experimental Program

Goals:

  • Combine computer-aided engineering techniques and practical control strategies for precise fabric part handling.
  • Focus on assembly processes such as folding, joining and locating
  • Develop controls that stabilize the motion, minimize wrinkling
  • Systematically adjust for fabric property variation
