Textile machines including sewing, winding or knitting machines are complex electro-mechanical equipment in which a large number of movements – including moving shafts, traverse drums, thread retaining and cutting, 3-axis thrusting, moving arms and tables – are performed at the same time and with great accuracy.

A textile machine consists of three main building blocks: power management, main control unit and motion control. There are also a variety of motion control sub-systems which are used according to the various types of motor including 3-phase BLDC and stepper motors as well as the performance required by the specific task to be accomplished, while more simple operations like cutting are performed by solenoids.

We have a broad portfolio of power MOSFETs, intelligent power modules (IPM), gate drivers and monolithic motor drivers as well as high-performance STM32 microcontrollers to enable highly efficient motor control designs, a large selection of AC-DC and DC-DC power management and supply solutions as well as a range of motion, proximity and ranging sensors and connectivity solutions to help design high-performance textile equipment.
