Taiwan’s Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) and functional fabrics firm Everest Textile have jointly developed an automated multi-tasking system for garment production that can cut manual operation by 70 per cent by incorporating ITRI’s 3D smart vision sensing technology. It can shorten textile sample proofing time to 1-3 days from 7-10 days. It can help Taiwan’s textile and garment industry to adopt semi-automatic production, according to a report.
