Textile sensors and integrated functions for your fiber preforms and sensor mats

Do you want to collect and use real-time data with your product or component to improve the health, performance, safety, comfort and efficiency of your applications?

Textile sensors can be seamlessly integrated into fiber preforms and sensor mats.

At TFP, we work with you to develop a custom-fit sensor mat in terms of shape, size and sensor layout, as well as the type of data transmission. We embroider the sensors and conductor tracks onto a carrier material that you can process easily and that best meets the requirements of your application.

Capture environmental data, monitor processes or improve the user experience to ensure the performance, efficiency and safety of the products and processes in which your components are used.

Textile sensors and functional threads complement your product perfectly because they:

We process the finest strands down to 0.04 mm, coated threads and other sensitive materials that are difficult or impossible to process using conventional production methods. When integrated into smart textiles, our wash-resistant textile sensor mats offer a high level of comfort and impress with their textile feel.

No matter what challenge you are currently facing with your product or component, let us work together to find a way to integrate innovative functions.

Integrate functions with sensor elements and functional threads or illuminated surfaces

Together with you, we develop a sensor layout for fiber composite materials that meets all the requirements of your specific application and ensures that the sensors monitor all critical areas in the fiber composite where damage can occur.

The sensors integrated into the fiber composite mats detect changes in certain parameters such as pressure, tension, temperature, humidity or other relevant physical or chemical variables that could indicate possible damage to the material.

Detect potential damage to fiber composite structures at an early stage before it causes serious problems. Reduce maintenance costs and increase the safety of your customers at the same time.

Integrate these and other functions with embroidered functional threads:

  • Detection of damage (damage sensing, tear wire mesh)
  • Detection of load conditions (e.g. deflection of elements)
  • Transmission of information (data transmission) and
  • Construction of sensor arrays using flexible conductor tracks
  • Integration of light & light surfaces.

Benefit from the integration of functional threads or textile sensors in your fiber preforms

Economical

Cost-efficient production of complex preforms

Complex structures

Complex patterns, layers or arrangements of fibers in preforms for precise reinforcement

Lightweight & stable

Lightweight fibers and carrier materials, but high rigidity due to optimal fiber orientation

Hybrid

Individual combination of lightweight fibers (carbon, glass fiber, aramid, basalt, ...) and metals

Multifunctional

Seamless integration of heating wires or sensor threads in fiber preforms

Reproducible

Production with high repeat accuracy in small and large series

Minimize the number of individual components and save work steps

We manufacture complex preforms and sensor mats with customized functional integration to suit your industrial application. Integrate our finished semi-finished products into your production in just one work step. Save working time for the placement of many components and reduce sources of error in the production process of your components or products. Replace many work steps with a preform with functional integration or sensor mat.

Textile sensors and sensor mats for your industrial application

We embroider various sensors, e.g. pressure and strain sensors, onto a textile carrier material. This results in material-homogeneous fiber preforms with functional integration or semi-finished products for your sensor mats, which you can embed seamlessly into your product.

Sensor-Arrays & textile Sensoren vom Hersteller TFP Technology

Capture data in real time

Sensor arrays with conductor tracks

Sensor arrays with conductor tracks offer precise monitoring and data transmission in various applications. These arrays consist of an arrangement of sensors that are placed on fiber composites with integrated conductor tracks, for example. The data recorded in real time is output by several sensors simultaneously.

We integrate strands or wires for data acquisition using sensors directly into your fiber preforms.

Collect data from multiple sensors simultaneously and obtain comprehensive information to make good data-based decisions.

Transmit information

Highly flexible textile sensors

Our highly flexible sensors can be integrated on a variety of carrier materials to create intelligent textiles. The textile sensors can be used for pressure measurement, as RFID identification and as temperature-resistant NFC antennas, among other things.

The data recorded by the sensors is transmitted in real time, e.g. via:

  • Cables
  • NFC
  • RFID or UHF RFID

The type of data transmission depends on your desired application.
