Type of fabrics

fabric under-garments Major kind of textile fabrics used for clothing, home furnishing and industrial usages - the page briefly describes almost all commonly used fabrics and its characteristics and usages.

Weaving Machines

fabric weaving The new shuttle-less machines are simply called ?weaving machines?, this term implying looms working without shuttle.

Industrial enzymes in textile production and application

dyeing finishing Enzymes are living biological substances that can help speed up any chemical reaction without itself being reduced. But, they work better under certain temperature and pH value. Therefore, these are also called as biological catalysts. Since textiles industry uses many such chemical reactions, enzymes today are a vital part of the textile production system. Applications like pectinases, lipases, proteases, catalases, and xylanases are used in textile processing.

Machine Types

embroidery finishing Schiffli Embroidery machines are available on the market as Standard and ATC (Automatic Tool Change) machines

Weaving Operations

fabric weaving In weaving, no matter what type of weaving is being done, four major operations are performed in sequence and are continuously repeated, they are Shedding, Picking, Beating Up, Taking Up and Letting Off

Projectile Weaving Machines

fabric weaving The projectile weaving machine made its appearance in the market at the beginning of the 50?s and is today still used in the whole world. In this weaving machine the weft insertion is carried out by small clamp projectiles, which number depends on the weaving width and which with their grippers take out the weft yarn from big cross-wound bobbins and insert it into the shed always in the same direction.

Knitting Lapping Diagrams

fabric knitting With the exception of the very simplest structures, it is too time consuming to represent warp knitted fabric using stitch or loop diagrams. For this reason two methods of fabric representation are commonly used a. Lapping diagrams, b. Numerical representation.

Properties of Fused laminate

apparel Some of the fators determine the propeties of fused laminate such as the basic fabric of the inerlining,methods of applying resins to base cloths - Scatter coating, dry dot printing,paste coating.

Drive and control of weaving machines

fabric weaving The latest weaving machines are equipped with microprocessor or PLC units which ensure continuously the control, the drive and the monitoring of the various machine members and of the various functions. One of the ways to increase production is to design and manufacture particular weaving machines which can offer very high weft insertion rates.

Fusing Temperature

apparel Fusing in fact is lamination of two ore more textile surfaces by using thermoplastic resins. Therefore temperature is the most important (but also the most critical factor for the application of fusing.
