Bally Ribbon Mills (BRM), a designer, developer and manufacturer of specialized engineered woven fabrics, announced its proprietary E-WEBBINGS e-textile product base. Specifically designed to serve as a customizable base for a range of smart textile applications within the Internet of Things (IoT), these smart textiles serve as the foundation layer to which electronic intercommunicative technology is integrated directly. They allow for smaller final product size, lower weight, optimal user comfort, and significant cost savings, according to Bally Ribbon.
E-WEBBINGS narrow woven fabrics are made from a variety of fibers and conductive elements that allow electronics and digital parts to be embedded in them. BRM works with customers to design components that allow for the detection and gathering of data depending on the specific applications. Conductive fibers or wires can be woven right into the E-WEBBINGS fabric, allowing for transmission of power and information without the need for additional wiring in the final component.
