Shri Sanjay Jain also stressed that the on-going scenario is negatively affecting the domestic yarn, fabric and garment manufacturers. He further stated that there is a greater need to impose safeguard measures such as Rules of Origin, Yarn Forward and Fabric Forward Rules on the countries like Bangladesh and Sri Lanka that have FTAs with India to prevent cheaper fabrics produced from countries like China routed through these countries. Garment manufacturers in India have to pay duty on imported fabrics, while Bangladesh can import fabric from China duty free and convert them into garments and sell to India duty free. This is putting Indian garment industry at a major disadvantage and this figure is expected to go up in coming months.

 

At the same time, Shri Sanjay Jain pointed out that India can increase its exports of cotton yarn and fabrics provided the sector is restored with export incentives. CITI has been strongly representing the case of cotton yarn and fabrics with every government department, including PMO to enhance the competitiveness of the cotton yarn and fabric sector. He stated that at present India’s share of cotton yarn in world trade is 26% and it is declining steeply as the incentives given to the cotton yarn sector were withdrawn in 2014 and MEIS which was extended to the entire value chain was not extended to cotton yarn. Moreover, there are various state levies up to the tune of 8% on cotton yarn which are not refunded at any stage. Similarly, Fabric sector is not getting refund of state levies of around 6%. By including cotton yarn under MEIS and providing ROSL for fabrics, Indian can retain its competitiveness in the global market.

Shri Sanjay K. Jain, stated that he is optimistic that the Government would consider CITI’s representations and resolve the issues of the textile and clothing sector on an urgent basis.

 

Shri Ajay Tamta, Hon’ble Minister of State (MoS) for Textiles inaugurated the 60th edition of India International Garment Fair (IIGF) today at Pragati Maidan.

Karl Mayer OOM article

Industrial fabrics

Technical textiles are revolutionising the textile world due to the broadening of applications in end-use industries, such as automotive, construction, healthcare, and sports equipment and so on. New innovations off the weaving loom are used everywhere: in the construction of vehicles, in the medical sector, in wind turbines or as geotextiles.Technical textiles are changing the world. Every day technical yarns confront weaving preparation with new challenges.

The innovative technologies presented by KARL MAYER offer unparalleled solutions for warp preparation in technical textiles. Machines made by KARL MAYER assist you with keeping abreast of rapid developments and increase your profitability. 

Woven innovation from KARL MAYER

KARL MAYER sectional warpers offer the latest technology, and achieve the highest quality for optimum results in weaving. A laser-controlled band build-up system provides identical band circumferences and section-carrier trolley feeds without correction stops. The Ethernet interface ensures a reliable link between our machines and our customer’s network as well as a proper connection for the relevant data collection. KARL MAYER machines enable almost endless applications due to the variety of our creel systems equipped with a wide range of yarn tensioners suitable for all kinds of yarns. KARL MAYER sectional warpers offer additional customer benefit in particular for highly sophisticated applications. These machines guarantee an outstanding warp quality due to the perfectly uniform yarn tension and the high remaining elongation. Highest productivity is achieved by combining minimum yarn load and high speeds. The ergonomic design also ensures increased operator efficiency and comfort.

KARL MAYER Opt-O-Matic (OOM)–Sectional Warping Machine for High Tensile Yarns

The Opt-O-Matic from KARL MAYER is the perfect machine for meeting the high demands of specific processing conditions without compromising on either efficiency or flexibility in the exacting field of technical textiles.

 

Sectional warping machines made to requirement

What KARL MAYER has presented to the weaving world is a sectional warper with perfect yarn tension control. A system that can guarantee perfect beams every time without having to “iron out” any circumferential differences. Using a laser to measure the band circumference, and using the computer band build-up control to modify the band profile with the appropriate yarn tensioner systems, the OOM sectional warper has brought about a revolution in the technical textile industry.

Further, KARL MAYER was faced with the challenge of producing a warper that could cope in a simple and effective manner with the particularly ’high bulk‘ yarns that were becoming increasingly fashionable for weaving. Rather than just develop a unit for this specific yarn, KARL MAYER decided to extend its ’Opt-O-Matic‘ range to include these yarn types and also give an alternative technology possibility to customers. Thus the compaction roller control was born. The laser still plays its critical role of measuring the band build-up, but now an active compaction roller on the section carrier trolley ensures that the yarn build-up remains perfect. Rather than just ironing out any differences, the rollers actively monitor and alter their pressure thus giving a uniform build-up to all warp bands that would later become the perfect weaver’s beam.

Endless possibilites for technical textile warping

The Opt-O-Matic with its various possibilities of tension control devices for the band build-up also offers customers complete flexibility in whatever area of textiles they may work in.

The possible specifications are –

·         Working width               : 2200 – 5400  mm

·         Beam diameter              : 1000 – 1250 mm

·         Beaming tension           : 100 – 30`000 N

·         Warping speed,up to     : 1000 m/min

·         Beaming speed,up to    : 500 m/min

 

Standard accessories such as feeding aggregate device, leasing device, waxing device, press roller device, and anti-static devices are naturally available as well as other special features not so often heard of in sectional warping, such as reverse winding on the beaming side, as well as direct warping from the creel.

Creels for spun yarns and filament yarns

Different creel executions for almost every application

KARL MAYER’s portfolio includes the ceels structures i.e. GD-Swievel type, GW-Trolley type, GM-Magazine type, GN-Fixed type standard creel and Unwinding creels with suitable yarn tensioners as per the need of technical yarns and all other kinds of yarns produced. The rigidly mounted standard creel as well as the magazine creel which has several magazines equipped with bobbins. The swivel-frame creel in case of which one part of the frame can be turned around and can be re-loaded while the other side is unwound. KARL MAYER‘s creels and yarn tensioners ensure a constant yarn tension over the entire length and width of the warp, just from the first to the last meter. Our yarn tensioners offer a gentle yarn treatment and can withstand high loads of fast-running yarns, partly also of aggressive yarns. Textiles intended for special applications require highest efficiency and best quality already when producing the warps. By offering individual solutions, KARL MAYER’s machines ensure constant and high tensile forces, even when processing high-strength technical materials. Yarn breakages are eliminated in a most reliable and easy way by the self-activation of the yarn stop motion and by the clear signalling of the place of yarn breakage.

KARL MAYER provides customized yarn tensioners as per the need of the technical yarns and all other kinds of yarns in the market

 

Major tensioner systems for technical applications

Unwinding creels

KARL MAYER’s unwinding creels offer the right solution for every warping job requiring a twist-free operation. These creels are intended for the unwinding of wires, monofilament yarns, tapes and technical yarns which are not allowed to get any additional twist by overhead draw-off. The yarn unwinding tension can be adjusted centrally, and the compensation of the yarn tension from full to empty bobbins is ensured.

GAM - Unwinding creels for monofilament yarns

Applications - for technical yarns, monofilament and wires

GAR / GAPP - Air-controlled unwinding creels for tapes made from polypropylene or polyethylene

Applications - for technical yarns, monofil, glass fibres, tapes, carbon fibres, wires

The versatility of the Opt-O-Matic sectional warping machine and the MULTITENS yarn tensioning system are worth a special mention here. The count of technical yarns presents a particular challenge. Yarns having a count of above 1,100 dtex are usually heavy, require high processing forces, and tend to form large yarn balloons during take-off at high speeds. If the yarn ends fall down in an uncontrolled manner, this can also result in unwinding of the entire package. Stiff yarns run the risk of jumping out of the yarn guides, and thick yarns do not adhere securely to the package because of their relatively small contact area in relation to their large circumference. These are just some of the factors that have to be taken into account when processing technical yarns. But Opt-O-Matic in combination with a creel with appropriate tensioners can do a perfect job, time after time,

With these features and possibilities available on this machine, it can be truly said that the KARL MAYER Opt-O-Matic range has a solution for all sectional warping requirements for almost all type of technical applications

This February in Las Vegas, SOURCING at MAGIC will focus on the most important topic for 2018 – the digitalization of manufacturing.   It’s a game-changer, and its here!  Digital Apparel Micro Factories, whichcan create apparel on demand and in extremely short periods of time, gives designers and producers powerful "concept-to-creation" capabilities.In five steps you can go from design to product – CAD/Design to printing to cutting to sewing.

“Automation will ultimately change where and how all apparel is produced – we are at a tipping point in terms of the technology necessary to move this forward, said Christopher Griffin, President, Sourcing at MAGIC. “SOURCING at MAGIC felt it was a very compelling focus category that all buyers, brands and factories are interested in and are seeking guidance.”

The Process:

·         Create & prepare a garment prototype using 3D renderings

  • Convert designs into printing data & transfer to digital printer
  • Pick fabric using color management software & you are now ready to digitally print
  • Send design to “heat press” which transfers the design directly onto the fabric
  • Automated cutters the cut the patterns (sewbots)

 

SOURCING at MAGIC will let you experience the technology that will move your business into the future. Sourcing will host a micro-factory on the show floor, featuring live demonstrations of apparel production (the micro factory will produce tee-shirts onsite!).  The micro-factory will consist of machinery from EFI, Optitex, EFI Reggiani, Klieverik, Zund , Eton System, along with robots and sewing from Henderson. Several specialists will lead panels informing audiences on functionalities and the benefits behind automated technology. 

 

SOURCING at MAGIC will host show wide installations, seminars and events:

FEATURED AUTOMATED TECHNOLOGY:

Pattern Making Software | "Sew-bot" Machines | Auto-Drape Machines | Hot-press Printer | New Digital Printers for Cotton 

 

TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPERS:

Eton Systems  | EFI | Optitex | Reggiani | Zund | Henderson Sewing Machine Co, Inc.

 

ON-SITE SEMINARS

 

SMART FACTORIES: THE FUTURE IS HERE

·         Digitalization of manufacturing is a fashion game changer linking the entire supply chain and no longer leaving the manufacturing in the “valley of analogue.” In order to meet these new challenges, manufacturers,designers, brands and retailers must adapt the new world of tech.

·         Speakers include Katherine Stein, Softlines SGS North America Inc. and Joachim Hensch, HUGO BOSS/ SGS

MOVING INTO THE FUTURE OF MANUFACTURING FASHION: MICRO FACTORIES, FINISHING, ROBOTS and CUSTOMIZATION
