Book Description :

A general technological survey and short range forecast of probable garment fabrication techniques and apparel industry operations was undertaken. The investigation revealed that over the next five years significant improvements in the productivity and in the management functions of the industry will develop. It appears that the impact of these developments will result in more rapid and more mechanized output of the same type of clothing generally available today, rather than in completely new types of apparel.

Book Description :

Textile products are produced, distributed, sold and used worldwide. A quantitative assessment of sustainability in the textile manufacturing chain is therefore extremely important. The Handbook of sustainable textile production is a compilation of technical, economical, and environmental data from the various processes in this chain. This authoritative reference work provides a detailed study of the sustainable development of textiles. The book opens with an introduction to the topic. Chapters define the principles of sustainability and its use in legislation and industry before going on to investigate the impact of textiles throughout the supply chain, starting with the raw fibre through to fabric production, consumption and disposal. Textile process technology and methods for specifying quality and functions in textile products in order to reduce textile waste and improve sustainability are also examined. A series of Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) carried out in the European textile industry are investigated. These studies comprise a range of processes from cotton growing, spinning and weaving to the recycling of textiles. The book concludes with a discussion on sustainable textiles from a product development and marketing perspective. With an internationally recognised expert author, the Handbook of sustainable textile production is a valuable reference tool for academics and students as well as for companies across the textile supply chain concerned with developing a sustainable environment, from fibre manufactures and designers to regulatory bodies.

Book Description :

Getting higher productivity doesn’t mean working for more time with the available resources. It is all about how smartly we work. On a sewing floor, it refers to how efficient we are at doing a piece of work, i.e. opting the best method with the combination of most recent technology available. This not only increases the productivity but also saves money, improves quality by reducing defects. Following the above concept, a series of articles review the different levels of technology solutions available for an operation, the make and models of machinery and equipment available in the market. At the outset, it must be borne in mind that many of the operations are complex, time consuming and require a skilled operator. The process can be greatly simplified by using automatic machines available for the purpose, which, promisingly enough, also give a fair ROI. This is calculated for each of the operations to gauge the overall advantage an automatic machine holds over a basic manually operated one.
