Blow Room Functions

spinning spun-yarn yarn Blow room is the starting of the spinning operation where the fibre is opened, cleaned, mixed , micro dust removed and evened thus passed to carding machine without increasing fibre rupture, fibre neps , broken seed particles and without removing more good fibres. The basic functions of blow room are opening, cleaning, dust removal, blending and evenly feeding the material on the card.

Plain Weaves

fabric hosiery weaving Plain weave is the most common and tightest of basic weave structures in which the filling threads pass over and under successive warp threads and repeat the same pattern with alternate threads in the following row, producing a chequered surface. They do not ravel easily but tend to wrinkle and have less absorbency than other weaves. The plain weave is variously known as ?calico? or ?tabby? weave.

Finishing Technical Textiles

non-apparel While using normal fibres to produce technical textiles it is imperative that high tech functional finishes are imparted to them to make them functionally superior and relevant to the end use application such as anti-bacterial, anti-static, UV protective, thermal, or biodegradable functions - are playing an increasingly important role. Since technical textiles are generally not fashion oriented, performance requirements and technical specifications determine the success of a product.Therefore fi

Knitted Fabrics for Elasticity, thickness and warmth

fabric knitting The elasticity of knitted fabrics gives them an excellent drape, but this is opposed somewhat by their generally greater thickness compared to wovens.

Textile Yarns

knitting spinning yarn Yarns are continuous strands of fibers that can be woven or knitted into fabrics. Natural staple fibers usually requires processes such as spinning to make yarns. Silk yarn, extracted from silk cocoon are continuous filament yarns. Most of the synthetic yarns also does not require the additional processes of spinning.
