Acrylic Fibres

fiber Acrylic fibres are polymers formed by addition polymerization of at least 85% by weight of a chemical called acrylonitrile or vinyl chanide. To polymerise vinyl cyanide the double bond between the first two carbon atoms is broken and the molecules attach themselves to each other in a linear chain.

Merchandiser's other Responsibilities

apparel Apart from acting as a mediator between buyer and the production unit, merchandiser also has the responsibility to advise and assist other departments right from sampling to final shipping.

Draw frame Functions

spinning spun-yarn yarn Carded Slivers are fed into the Draw-Frame and are stretched/Straightened and made in to a single sliver. Also fibre blending can be done at this stage. The cans that contain the sliver are placed along the draw-frame feeder rack, usually including eight pairs of cylinders (each pair is above the space occupied by a can),the lower cylinder is commanded positively, while the upper one rests on the lower one in order to ensure movement of the relative sliver that runs between the two.

Sizing

fabric spun-yarn weaving Sizing is a complementary operation which is carried out on warps formed by spun yarns with insufficient tenacity or by continuous filament yarns with zero twist. It is done with an aim of improving yarn smoothness and tenacity during the subsequent weaving stage. The sizing methods change depending on the type of weaving machine used, on the yarn type and count, on the technician's experience and skill, on the kind of material in progress.

Hand Stitch Types

apparel Hand stitches have many uses. Before the sewing machine, garment-making was done exclusively by hand. However, in today’s home sewing world of sophisticated sewing machines and sergers, few garments are made entirely by hand.But, many home-sewn and custom-made garments continue to have some type of hand stitching used primarily as finishing techniques (hemming, securing fasteners, etc.). Thus, knowing and understanding the proper stitch to use is important to the item’s appearance as well as

Ring Spinning

spinning spun-yarn yarn The Ring Spinning is the most widely used form of spinning machine due to significant advantages in comparison with the new spinning processes. The ring spinning machine is used in the textile industry to simultaneously twist staple fibres into yarn and then wind it onto bobbins for storage. The yarn loop rotating rapidly about a fixed axis generates a surface referred to as "balloon". Ring frame settings are chosen to reduce yarn hairiness and the risk of glazing or melting the fibre.

Carbon Fibers

fiber manmade-fiber Carbon fiber is a super strong material that is extremely lightweight. It is five times as strong as steel, two times as stiff, yet weighs about two-thirds less. Carbon fiber is basically very thin strands of carbon (even thinner than human hair). The strands can be twisted together, like yarn and then be woven together, like cloth. To make carbon fiber take on a permanent shape, it can be laid over a mold and coated with a stiff resin or plastic. Carbon fiber can also be defined as a fiber containing at least 92 wt % carbons.

Twist insertion and Different Spinning Techniques

air-jet-spinning spinning yarn The new spinning systems clearly avoid the limitations produced by the twist insertion mechanism. It is possible to increase the twist insertion rate and the yarn production speed quite considerable. Various spinning techniques specifications.

Eco Textiles

dyeing non-apparel The textile industry is considered as the most ecologically harmful industry in the world. The eco-problems in textile industry occur during some production processes and are carried forward right to the finished product. In the production process like bleaching and then dyeing, the subsequent fabric makes a toxin that swells into our ecosystem.There fore the need of eco textiles is felt.Green textiles refer to clothing and other accessories that are designed to use organic and recycled material

Weaving Machines
