A Danish textile factory in Sweden is using a robot to create fabric for garments from the ocean, using materials from the Danish textile market.
It uses an automated process called ‘fish and chip’ and a laser to cut fabrics into individual patterns.
The Danish textile business is a joint venture between the Danish Ministry of Education and Research and the Swedish government.
The fish and chip machine was used to cut fabric for the new textile from the seaside village of Åskarholt, which is about 40 kilometers south of Stockholm.
“We are using the fish and chips machine to cut out individual fabric pieces that are 100 millimeters in diameter,” said Åsge Håkansson, the project manager of the textile factory.
The machine is able to cut through fabric in just a few seconds.
It’s designed to cut pieces of fabric with the same speed and precision as a saw.
“I can see the difference in the texture when it comes to the textile, it’s completely different than what we have in the factory,” said Håkan, who added that the textile made from the fish chip is also quite beautiful.
The textile is made from fish from the local lake and then cut by the machine in a process similar to a butcher’s shop.
The factory’s owner, Anders Berg, is also working with a team of specialists to create a brand new product.
The fabric is made of an acrylic and nylon blend that is then combined with fish and fish flakes.
The new textile, which uses a synthetic material, is now available in Sweden.
“The textile that we made from these fish is beautiful, it is very beautiful.
We hope that people will like it as well,” said Berg.
He hopes that his textile company will also be able to produce more.
“If I don’t get more fabrics, then we will stop,” he said.
The Norwegian government is also investing in fish and sea life research, and the Danish government has also invested in research in ocean biology and environmental sustainability.
