finishing Ring doubling and two for one twister, quality required by yarn to get best doubled yarn. Formula for double yarn count.

Fusing Process and its Requirement

apparel Regardless of which fusible and machine are used, fusing is controlled by four processing components such as temperature,time, pressure and cooling.

Fabric Cutting Standards

apparel apparel-making Where large quantities of a garment style must be cut, a lay is created which consists of many plies of fabric spread one above the other. From this, all the garment pieces for all the sizes that have been planned for that lay are cut. The pattern shapes for these garments may be drawn on a paper marker placed on top of the lay, or information as to their shape and position may be held within a computer, to be plotted similarly on a paper marker or used to drive an automatic cutter. Therefore ce

Dyeing Methods

dyeing finishing weaving Dyeing can be performed using continuous or batch processes. Yarn dyeing is used to create interesting checks, stripes, and plaids with different-coloured yarns in the weaving process. Substances which cause these changes are called dyestuffs.


spinning spun-yarn yarn The input of roving frame is silver that comes from draw frame section where only parallel of comber sliver. In roving section reduce the linear density of draw frame silver by drafting. After reducing the linear density the silver is transfer into roving (a thin form of rope). This is first stage where twist is inserted for making a yarn in spinning mill. The output of this section is roving which is wind on a bobbin and this is suitable for further process. Here in this section describes
