Digital transformation in the textile industry: Appsfactory and Trützschler presented a new process optimization app, “My Wires”, at ITMA




Following their successful cooperation in creating the “My Production” app, Appsfactory and Trützschler have now jointly developed another flagship project: the new “My Wires” app. The mobile application was presented for the first time at the International Textile Machinery Exhibition (ITMA), which was held from 20 June to 26 June. It allows customers, among other things, to check the current maintenance status of their machines and to plan the forthcoming maintenance and repairs. The ITMA, which took place in Barcelona this year, is considered the World’s largest exhibition for the textile machinery industry. Trützschler presented itself as the market leader in the field of spinning preparation. Appsfactory comes with its own back-end identity management, and integrates with external systems. It can be accessed via iOS and Android devices as well as Web frontend.

“My Wires”: an Industry 4.0 application that simplifies customer’s spinning processes

The app focuses on individual customer requirements. It allows users to manage Trützschler and competitor products, and provides information about the status of accessories and service intervals at all times. “”My Wires” app is an exemplary, all-round, successful Industry 4.0 project. With smart networking of production machinery and mobile devices, the application allows a one-off optimization of the entire spinning process”, says Alexander Trommen, CEO of Appsfactory.

Digitized overview and optimized task management

Besides wire management, the app also features digital material procurement, a planning tool, and historical overview of machine tasks. Customising the app only takes a few minutes. It is done once by entering information on the processed material, the spinning process, and the expected output. Based on the data entered, the application seamlessly adjusts maintenance and repair schedules to the specific requirements. “My Wires” provides transparent and reliable information on when and where the next maintenance is due. The app also facilitates straightforward reorganization of parts lists, and ensures quick reordering. When accessories are exchanged, the app can be used to scan the new product label. This is sufficient to get the product automatically recognised and the data entered into the logbook.

We at Appsfactory are delighted by the successful presentation of our new app at ITMA. We wish users optimal organization and simplification of their textile production!
