Types of Pressing machinery and equipment
It is possible to press samples of light clothing, such as dresses, blouses, and nightdresses, on versatile unit equipped with a hand iron. However, if the samples are of constructed garments, while most of the simple under pressing operations can be performed with a hand iron, there are still several operations which require the specialized machines in the factory. This is especially relevant to top pressing where to most of the operations are performed on special purpose machines.
The usual procedure is for the sample room to do what can be done correctly and then use the factory’s machines for everything else.
There are hundreds of different types of pressing machines on the market because of the variety of garment types produced, each with its own specific pressing requirements. Here are the respective of there types.
High tech pressing machine for men’s and women’s clothing is a digital programmer and presses the shoulder, sleeve head and sleeve cuff in one set-up.To sum up it is no exaggeration to say that a part of cutting, the two cornerstones of garment quality are fusing and pressing. The pressing processes give the final finish and appearance. The importance of pressing should never be underestimated, because of its decisive contribution to garment quality and appeal.
Hand irons are used for numerous operations in the production of clothing. One example of these is electric high-pressure steam iron.Hand irons are produced in a variety of shapes and weights to suit specific types of operations.The following are some examples of the sole plate shapes available.
The form finishing machine
Is one of the types used for finishing men’s and women’s jackets, blousons and skirts. During the pressing operations, the body and sleeves are precisely tensioned by pneumatically operated clamps pressure pads which can be set for individual forms. A microprocessor monitors and regulators the programmed times, temperatures and the sequence or combination of team, hot air, cold air, and vacuum.
The small cabinet press
Is designed to press the heat shirts before they are buttoned, thus preventing button marks on the finished article. During the pressing process, the back and front are tensioned by air-filled bags, which ensure an even pressing surface when the shirt is between the two shaped pressing plates.This particular machine can be efficiently operated by one person only when there is a reasonable balance between the handling and pressing cycle times.
A tunnel finisher
Is used for knitwear which can carry up to 30 articles at a time through the finishing process. The tunnel has two sections, one for gentle seaming and the other for quick drying of the garment.Garment forms can be adjusted for different styling and sizes and the microprocessor controls the processing time, steaming time and the quantity and steam and air temperature. Up to 24 individual pressing programs can be stored in the microprocessor.
