Manmade /Artificial fibres

fiber Man-made fibres are fibres in which either the basic chemical units have been formed by chemical synthesis followed by fibre formation or the polymers from natural sources have been dissolved and regenerated after passage through a spinneret to form fibres. These fibre came to success when the researchers obtained a product by condensation of molecules presenting two reactive aminic groups with molecules characterised by two carboxylic reactive groups.

Testing in Eco Textiles

Prominance of Twill Weaves

fabric weaving An important factor that influences the prominence of twill is the direction of twist in the yarn. When the direction of yarn twist is same as the twill direction, the prominence is reduced and when the direction of the the yarn twist is opposite to the twill direction, the prominence of the twill is increased. In other words a Z twill with Z twist yarn or an S twill with S twist yarn shows less prominence.

Winding Machines and Faults

Functions of Carding

spinning spun-yarn yarn Carding is a mechanical process that breaks up locks and unorganised clumps of fibre and then aligns the individual fibres so that they are more or less parallel with each other. Carding can also be used to create blends of different fibres or different colours. Carding plays a crucial role in all spinning cycles particularly in the woollen spinning cycle, in which it incorporates different functions, all essential in order to obtain the level of quality required of the product.

Fancy Twills

fabric weaving The fancy twill is formed by placing small spots between the main lines of twill. The first end of the weave should be a continuation of the last end and the first pick should be a continuation of the last pick, so that the weave will continue perfectly when repeated in either direction.

Importance of Fabric Selection in garment making

apparel In dress making and designing, fabric selection is vital important and integral part. Different fabrics for required for different ages, purposes and occasions. Wedding dress, uniforms, under garments, casual wears all requires different kind of fabrics and at times a combination of many.

Bra Manufacturing

apparel Various significant aspects of brassiere manufacturing are covered, e.g. bra design, molding technology and manufacturing automation.

Automation has been a global trend in manufacturing as it reduces the labour cost and, on the other hand,enhances the consistency in product quality.

Pattern Grading

apparel Pattern Grading is the process where by patterns of different sizes are produced from the original master pattern. This process can be performed manually or automatically by a computerized system. Patterns are graded according to size charts which present the sizes and the average measurements of the population group for which the garments are intended.In order to produce garment that fits various body types and sizes, the pattern pieces must be increased or decreased geometrically to create a
