SWICOFIL - Yarn and fiber expert.


With automatisation, wireless transmission and digitalisation on the rise, communication and sensoring applications experience a transformation. Swicofil is here to provide you with conductive high performance yarn and fibers to meet new market demands.
Yarn and fibers for automatisation, power supply, reflection, RFID, sensoring or stimulation


Swicofil is fully aware of your as well as your customers demands. Smart clothes need to be washable more than 10 times, wearable sensors need to withstand humidity and traction, reflection devices exposed to interference may not lose signals - all this whilst not compromising on performance.
Being Swicofil, we do not only know these needs, we also know which yarn or fiber solutions meet them perfectly. Whatever your problem is, Swicofil is your answer.


Communication and sensoring comprises various subtopics - the internet of things is only one. Yarn and fibers are able to meet the requirements of all of them. This can include applications like:
yarn and fiber solutions for automatisation applications   automatisation

yarn and fiber solutions for textile power supply applications   power supply

yarn and fiber solutions for textile reflection applications   signal transmission
yarn and fiber solutions for RFID applications   RFID

yarn and fiber solutions for sensoring applications   sensoring

yarn and fiber solutions for stimulation applications   stimulation
... just to name a few. There are no boundaries when it comes to using yarn or fibers for communication and sensoring purposes.


Conductivity can be reached via various materials. So are metals like silver or copper for example popular electric conductors in general. Combine these characteristics with those of yarn and fibers (such as fineness, flexibility and strenght), the perfect mean for communication and sensoring is created.

Swicofil is able to provide such yarns. Different metalized materials, various metals, the selection of metalization type as well as the possibility of adaption are within the range to meet your yarn and fiber requirements.


Choosing Swicofil as your partner brings amongst others the following advantages:
  • distinct know-how
    A pronounced know-how in the conductive yarn market and sensoring / communication technologies ensure that we fully grasp the situation of your project in no time.
  • wide range of conductive yarn and fibers
    In Swicofil‘s product range are several conductive yarn and fiber products to fully satisfy all the different requirements of all possible projects.
  • exclusive access to plasma metal coated yarns
    Plasma metal coated yarns combine high conductivity with the haptics of a normal textile multifilament yarn. They are thus the perfect solution for wearable technologies, smart clothes and further applications where robustness and delicacy are required simultaneously.

    Plasma metal coated yarns consist of two elements: a multifilament yarn in any material as a substrate and a coating with the metal with your desire. There is no adhesive layer above the yarn or underneath the metal - not even with gold, aluminium or other metals which previously could only be brought onto a yarn with many, performance-reducing tricks. Meaning the high performance of plasma metal coated yarns persevere for a very long time as plasma gold coated yarns will for example not start to oxidize like traditional gold coated yarns as there is no silver or copper layer underneath the gold.

    Plasma metal coated yarns have a very regular coating along the yarn, can be tailored upon your requirements and have an excellent washing behavior. For longlasting, excellent performance.
