At WTU of Teachers & Students
For many years, textile professionals all over the world have been seeking a new high-performance fiber spinning technique to make fabrics not only bright and smooth, but soft and wear-resistant at the same time. However, these efforts had been largely in vain until a WTU research team, led by Professor Xu Weilin, secured what was called“The Layered Agglomeration Control of Fibers in the Yarn-Forming Triangle and the Industrial Production of High-performance Yarns and Fabrics” technique and won the First Prize at the Provincial Science and Technology Award and Innovation Promotion Conference recently.
"Only when covered with cotton will one become a real textile professional," he said.
The 50-year-old professor is a world-renowned scientist of textile and high-molecular material. During his 30-year-odd teaching career, he has been leading students into factory workshops for first-hand research and experience. He broke the mold and turned out the lightest high-end fabrics by going beyond the technical limit of “Super High Count Spinning” with common material. Professor Xu’s brainchild has been acclaimed as "a world-leading technique of originality and significance” by a strong panel comprising famous academicians and applied to industrial production by many enterprises in Hubei Province and beyond. Fabrics produced have been purchased by high-end clothing brands and highly appraised.
