Domestic smart fabric gets more efficient
l Enterprises are looking for solutions to improve their efficiency. With their new smart gloves WIO, Thread in Motion - a domestic smart fabric producer - aims to increase the workforce efficiency of blue-collar employees. Following the launch of the world’s first smart suit, Thread in Motion has introduced its first smart glove to the world. WIO, which offers the utmost ergonomic capacity to its users, helps factory workers become faster and more efficient by monitoring movements. Thread in Motion, which received an investment of $350,000 from StartersHub, Turkey’s leading technology investor, Reisoğlu İplik and angel investor Ebru Dorman, will bring this new technology to the global market. The company opened offices in London and San Francisco in 2018 and will continue to grow by opening new offices around the world.
After gaining momentum in growth in the past year, Thread in Motion has been the first choice of many global producers in the industry. The company, which offers supplies to MercedesBenz, Renault, Tofaş, and Bridgestone-Lassa, owes its growth to being a leading force in the transition to Industry 4.0 and a strong R&D department. The company also helps other businesses to become more efficient by supplying them with products and technological solutions.
Kadir Demircioğlu, the co-founder of Thread in Motion, underlined the fact that WIO was developed by Turkish engineers as the world’s first smart glove. Stating that the gloves have 32 sensors, Demircioğlu said they work without wires thanks to transmitting threads.
