About the Department

The Department of Textile and Single-purpose Machines provides tuition in all three types of study programme – Bachelor, Masters, and Doctorate. The department deals with the construction of textile machinery, special-purpose machines, and production lines, as well as research and development into this sphere. Activity here is also orientated towards computer and experimental support (CA-technology) in the field of designing, and there is active cooperation with industry and with research institutes.

Vocational focus

  • Research and development of new systems of textile and single-purpose machinery using controlled drives and mechatronic elements.
  • Research, development and construction of single-purpose machines and facilities (for the automotive, textile, glassmaking and mining industries).
  • Theoretical and experimental research into the dynamic properties of fast-moving mechanisms and components.
  • Material, shape and structural optimisation of selected machine subsystems with regard to how they affect production processes.
  • Research into winding and unwinding processes.
  • Computer modelling of machines and mechanisms with respect to elastic bodies and structures.
  • Development and design of mechanisms and mechanical machine systems (synthesis, kinematic and dynamic analysis, simulations, optimisation, measuring, experiments).

Class work

The department guarantees study of the following fields at the Faculty of Machinery:

Study programme Name
Master’s degree Mechanical engineering
Doctoral degree Mechanical engineering

The department organises courses in several subjects at the Faculty of Mechatronics, the Textile Faculty and the Faculty of Architecture.


The department actively works together with a number of industrial concerns. For some of these it handles research and development projects, and optimisation and construction problems in subsystems of machines and facilities (MUS a.s., Rieter CZ, Behr Czech, Fezko a.s., Saurer Czech, Bosh Diesel, ORGREZ, etc.). For a long time now the department has worked together in the field of research with the Textile Machinery Research Institute in Liberec and with the Cotton Research Institute in Ústí nad Orlicí. At present these are predominantly projects resolved within the Textil II Research Centre. The department is always involved in international educational programmes. It regularly takes on and sends out students and employees as part of the SOCRATES programme and the IAESTE association. Long-term collaboration is also extended to a number of similar worksites abroad, e.g. the University of Minho, Guimaraes (Portugal), The Technical University of Dresden (Germany), Kumaraguru College of Technology (KCT) Coimbatore (India), the University of Bielsko-Biala (Poland), Trenčín University in Trenčín (Slovakia), The "Gh. Asachi" Technical University of Iasi (Romania).
