About Smartex

Smartex is an engineered solution to help textile manufacturers improve production yields, by reducing defective production to nearly 0%, by providing quality inspection and monitoring software, suitable for Business Intelligence analysis.

The system is a non-intrusive product, designed to be easily plugged into Circular Knitting Machines. Using signal acquisition devices, sensors, and processing units, Smartex system detects production faults in the output fabric, in real-time and in-line with production, alerting workers and stopping production if the fault is cyclic.

Smartex provides manufacturers as well with a quality monitoring software, that overviews all knitting machines where Smartex is installed, extracting all available data from the machine, providing production statistics and helpful insights.
