market and customer, we translate your requirements and ideas into textile concepts.
Intelligently embroidered and smartly sewn: FOOAN yarns for smart textiles
At a time when technology is becoming increasingly important in our lives, FOOAN develops intelligent yarns that precisely fit the application in question. The conductive and sensory fields in particular play a major role in our work in the Innovation Lab. Our innovative smart yarns are already used in a wide variety of industries today.
Typical applications for conductive threads include
Work clothing/Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Sensor yarns are used in the following industries, among others:
Once the prototypes of our new and further developments have proven themselves in practical application, we transfer them into series production. In addition to market requirements, we always keep an eye on cost efficiency and pay attention to a high level of product and process performance.
