fiber The process of separating the seeds from the cotton fibers. Types of processes, Points to be considered for fibre during processing. It also mentions various other properties.

Green Production Evaluation System

dyeing finishing The textile industry (cotton printing and dyeing) clean production standards being as reference and green production full control in whole process as the guiding ideology, the green evaluation indexes are formed and have better feasible manipulation.

Fabric Inspection and Terms

apparel The quality of a final garment depends on the quality of a fabric when it is received as a roll. Even the most outstanding manufacturing methods cannot compensate for defective materials. Normally, 10% of the rolls received are inspected and evaluated based on a four-point system. This way, fabric related quality problems can ve avoided before it is put into production

Timeline of Manmade Fibers

fiber A useful filament was not produced until the last part of the 19th century, when Swann and de Chardonnet extruded a solution of cellulose nitrate (collodion) through small holes (spinnerets). These pioneer manmade fibres were replaced by rayon fibres which were spun from an alkaline cellulose xanthate solution (viscose), which were in turn supplemented by cellulose acetate and many synthetic fibres.

Weaving Calculations

assorted weaving A guide to calculations relating to yarn and cloth and all processes of weaving.It includes reed count, reed width, Maximum EPI for particular count, weave density, crimp percentage, cloth cover factor etc

Apparel Testing

apparel Testing is a valuable aid for textile production, distribution, and consumption. During textiles testing the variation of a fibre or fabric i.e. length, colour, fineness, threads per inch, cover factor, is detected properly. Continuous test of the textiles results a enhanced and efficient output of the production. By Apparel Testing we can evaluate and ensure the quality of the garments to be used by the end users.

Air Jet Spinning

air-jet-spinning spinning yarn Air jet spinning has offered yarn manufacturers the opportunity to produce yarn at relatively high production rate. Unlike other spinning methods in which productivity is limited by the amount of twist in the yarn, Air Jet yarns can be produced at the same production rate regardless of yarn counts. Murata Vortex Spinners are one such leading Air Jet spinning machines which excel at producing finer yarns (Ne 40/1-60/1), because of the improved strength imparted to the smaller fibre bundle.

Power Consumption in Ring Spinning Mills

spinning yarn Two types of energy can be used in a specifc spinning mill; electrical energy and thermal energy. Machines, air conditioning, lamps used for illumination and compressors consume electrical energy while the thermal energy is consumed by air conditioning and processes such as fxation of yarns


assorted Containerization is a system of intermodal freight cargo transport, using standard ISO containers (known as shipping containers or isotainers) that can be loaded and sealed intact onto container ships, railroad cars, planes, and trucks. The introduction of containers resulted in vast improvements in port handling efficiency, thus lowering costs and helping lower freight charges and, in turn, boosting trade flows.

How Silk fiber is made

fiber Silkworms, which are really caterpillars, are fed mulberry leaves, mulberry leaves, and only mulberry leaves. They never stop eating. That means feedings every four hours.
