"Theory and Practice" - Bodyscanning Forum at the IMB
With the theme "Theory and Practice", specialists from Human Solutions will host a special program about practical body scanning applications. The event is scheduled to take place in Congress Centre 5 (East Wing, 2 floors up) on the 8th of May, from 13.00 until 17.00 hours. Using lectures and presentations, Human Solutions and their partners will demonstrate various aspects of capturing body measurements by means of a Bodyscanner. 'Customized clothing production for manufacturers and retailers' is just one focal point of this extra event. Topics like 'Fitting of tailored production clothing in the Corporate Fashion sector', as well as 'Product development for serial measurement procedures and additional uses by means of Bodyscanning’ will also be on the afternoon's program.
As well as the special solutions and products, users will report on how applications prove themselves in practice.
IMB 2003: a key Fair for the industry
The IMB covers the entire spectrum of textile processing worldwide. That's why this particular Fair is so important for Human Solutions - because we will be presenting a solution that brings benefits to all stages of clothing manufacture, from customer measurement right through to retailing itself. “RETAILOR opens up new avenues of opportunity for manufacturers and reinforces customer bonding. It also gives retailers a competitive edge. Warehousing stocks can be reduced and it is no longer necessary to tie up much-needed capital in collections”, explained Dr. Andreas Seidl, Managing Director of Human Solutions. “Customers get garments that are perfectly sized, individually designed and of the highest quality.”
