Wirekinetics-A Smart and Performance Textiles Manufacturer

 


Wirekinetics was founded in 2006, Taiwan.  The company is addressing in the technologies in micro metal/alloy fiber and related textiles.  The major market is in high performance thermal resistant textiles and smart textiles based on the intrinsic properties of the metal, thermal resistance and conductivity.

In thermal resistance field, we provide the best cost/performance products and solutions for the glass industry in separated material to enhanced the optical quality, and for the combustion industry to lower the CO and NOx emission with our expertise in metal material science and micro metal fiber production technologies.

In the conductivity field, the company is the first one in Asia to produce and develop smart textiles (or intelligent textiles).  The field of the smart textiles involves the technologies of material science, textile engineering, and electronic engineering.  It is a highly integrated technology.  Using inappropriate kits,  materials and solutions could induce uncertainty and confusion in R&D direction.  Certainly, they also waste lots of works and funds. We believe the smart textile should meet the general requirements of day-to-day clothes, such flexibility, tenacity, washability, etc. which do not exist in electronic devices.  Hence, the smart textiles are not just the products embedded PCBs, cables, or sensors into your clothes. They have to be or feel like a fabric.
 
Wirekinetics develops a simple, textile-oriented, and commercialised smart textile system, a micro metal and polymer composite yarn system.  The micro metal provides the electrical properties of the smart textile and compatibility with electronic processes, and the polymer provides the textile properties of the smart textile and compatibility with textile processes.  The assemblies of the composite yarn system, the electronic devices and textiles can demonstrate conductivity, detection, or other electrical functions.
 
The Wirekinetics’ team integrates the expertises of material science, textile engineering and electronic engineering to support our customers in diverse industrial fields.
