Recently, textile machine manufacturers introduced to the market significant technological advances. Examples of such advances are higher speeds, higher level of automation, new concept of jacquard weaving that enables control of individual warp threads, CAD systems, and wider machines than seen before. This paper reviews the new development of formation systems of textile structures with emphasis on technologies that enables the production of giant-area fabrics. The review includes broad range of technologies (weaving, knitting, needlepunching, hydroentanglement, meltblowing, etc.). Additionally, the paper sheds the light on the potential of the textile technologies to manufacture electrotextile fabric structures.
