Pleva Wins VDTF's Egon-Elöd Prize

The Association of German Textile Finishing Specialists (VDTF) recently awarded its Egon-Elöd Prize to Ralf Pleva, Ph.D., president of Germany-based Pleva GmbH. The award was presented in recognition of scholarly essays published by Pleva to report innovative measuring and control systems used in textile processing. Recent innovations relate to picture evaluation in finishing, weft yarn detection in automatic weft straightening, and fabric moisture and temperature measurement.
