Textile Sensors by MSP made with Tailored Sensor Placement (TSP)

Textile Sensors by MSP  is a business unit for technical embroidery of  Modespitze Plauen GmbH with developments for the market of technical textiles.

On this page we give a short introduction to a new textile sensor that was developed for (live) monitoring  of fibre reinforced plastics.


  • health monitoring basing on signals that derive directly out of the fibre reinforced part
  • signals are good for measuring and not for detection only
  • we call this integrated system DMC – direct material control


all materials used apply to the matrix of the fibre reinforced structure and do prevent from de-lamination of layers or weakening  components used

process and technology:

  • our system is based on embroidery technology which can add functional components like interconnections and electronic parts to a fabric ground
  • the newly developed application technology is called TSP – tailored sensor placement
  • TSP connects textiles made of glass, aramid, basalt or carbon with functional structures like sensor areas, feed lines and contact points
  • TSP includes also reliable contacts of wires with diameter 0,05 – 0,1 mm, device test and cutting of devices
  • next these sensor preforms are suitable for integration in fibre reinforced parts
  • possible plastic technologies are RTM composite or dry preforming with thermoplastic constructions

usage of textile sensors:

all light weight structures made of fibre reinforced components and/ or with need for advanced functional density like device monitoring for security or performance reasons

fields of application:

  • engineering
  • mobility sector
  • wind power blades
  • sports equipment
  • health care and medical devices
  • construction area
  • lightweight engineering


If interested, please contact us. Together with our clients and network partners we develop customized systems to realize higher functional density.
