From first in Ludhiana, ATDC to launch a series of RPL across the country

 

 

Apparel Training and Design Centre (ATDC) India’s Largest Quality Vocational Training Provider for the Apparel sector launched the first “Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Programme” under Pradhan Mantri Kaushal VikasYojana (PMKVY) 2.0, the flagship scheme of the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship (MSDE), Government of India at the factory premises of KG Exports at Ludhiana, Punjab.  

 

The Dignitaries who graced the occasion included Mr. Rajat Bhatnagar, State Engagement Officer, National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), and Ms. Kirti Jain, Assistant Director Operations North of Apparel Made-Ups Home Furnishing Sector Skill Council (AMHSCC), Convener LMC, Mr. Ajit Lakra and Director General & CEO ATDC, Dr. Darlie Koshy. Managing Director of KG Exports, Mr. Harish Dua and ATDC RPL Team led by Ms. Neera Chandra, Ms. Roopali Shukla and Sr. Dy. Registrar. Mr. Rajesh Masiwal managed the RPL process with candidates to be trained under RPL were present atthe launch ceremony.

 

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a robust platform to provide recognition to the skills acquired through informal learning to get equal acceptance as the formal levels of education or skill development. It aims to recognize prior learning and bring them to the “trained skilled workforce cadre”.  In short, RPL is a process of assessment of an individual’s prior learning to give due importance to ‘learning’ as an outcome  on the job rather than learning as a process not necessarily directed at  economic activity.

 

Dr. Koshy DG & CEO said on the occasion:  RPL for a country like India is an absolutenecessity as only about 7% -10% of the workforce have received any formal vocational training.  In some section it is less than even 5%. Considering this abysmal situation prior learning through skills developed on the jobbeing assessed and evaluate later top-up training by ATDC through 3rdparty certification is a welcome step.

 

Mr. Jayant Krishna, COO NSDC said; “The Indian apparel industry has seen an upward surge in the demand in the past few years and the industry is showing buoyancy by way of market growth. However, the sector has still to realise much of its huge potential. Despite huge workforce, the industry is marred by relatively low productivity levels and faces tough competition in the exports market from Bangladesh and China. Hence, it is imperative to identify skill gaps in the industry and train the existing workforce under the RPL programme to enhance their productivity. In addition, the programme provides formal recognition to the people with specific abilities and gets them certified as per the industry standards. We are happy to initiate this project and are certain that it will benefit as well as motivate workers”

 

In his welcome address, Dr. Darlie Koshy – DG and CEO, ATDC added: For ATDC, its DNA is connected to the Apparel Export Sector and it is well equipped to be a leader in RPL as almost all the export units are having a good number of ATDC alumni and the industry considers ATDC training as gold standard.  ATDC’s taking up RPL will certainly help the industry units to take it more seriously and with extra interest. The huge workforce in apparel factory will have an opportunity to be evaluated and certified for the skills that they possess and probably would have compared their own skills at some stage with those who came with skill qualification can now look forward to better career opportunities !

 

After Ludhiana, ATDC will take up RPL in other states like Punjab, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Madhya Pradesh and West Bengal to cover 13, 000 candidates. ATDC will be executing a twelve-hour orientation for the candidates followed by 3rd party Assessment and Certification. Certified candidates will get the direct benefit of Rs 500 cash in their accounts from the Government’s end, as well as special kit including a T-shirt, cap and they will be covered with an Insurance policy of five years (Pradhan Mantri Suraksha BimaYojana) in addition to a certificate.

·         Positive volume development across all segments

·         New guidance for full year 2017: EBITDA pre exceptionals between EUR 1.225 billion and EUR 1.3 billion

·         Matthias Zachert says: “We have the right positioning and the Chemtura acquisition further enhances our operational strength.”

 

Cologne –Specialty chemicals company LANXESS projects the highest full year results in company history,following a very strong first quarter of 2017 and the successful closing of the acquisition of U.S. based company Chemtura.

 

Global sales of the specialty chemicals company increased by a substantial 25 percent to EUR 2.4 billion in the first quarter of 2017, up from EUR 1.9 billion a year earlier. EBITDA pre exceptionals also improved by 25 percent to EUR 328 million, compared with EUR 262 million in the first quarter of 2016. The very positive first-quarter development was primarily driven by a significant increase in volumes across all segments.

 

The EBITDA margin pre exceptionals came in at 13.7 percent, slightly above the prior-year figure of 13.6 percent.Net income rose significantly by 47 percent to EUR 78 million, against EUR 53 million in the year-earlier quarter.

 

For the full year 2017, the company expects EBITDA pre exceptionals of between EUR 1.225 billion and EUR 1.3 billion. This forecast includes the earnings contribution from the newly acquired Chemtura businesses. 2017 could therefore be the most successful fiscal year in the company’s history. LANXESS achieved its highest operating result to date in 2012, when it posted a figure of around EUR 1.2 billion.

 

“LANXESS got off to a very strong start to the new fiscal year. We recorded an increase in demand in all of our business segments and generated higher sales in all regions. This clearly shows that we have the right positioning,” said Matthias Zachert, Chairman of the Board of Management of LANXESS AG. “Good order flow and a dynamic business environment appear to continue in the second quarter – for the full year, we are even expecting record earnings. This is a clear indication of our operational strength, which will be further enhanced by the Chemtura acquisition. Our job now is to ensure the swift and smooth integration of the new businesses.”

 

In what was another major step forward in its realignment program, LANXESS closed the acquisition of U.S. chemical company Chemtura around three weeks ago. With the largest acquisition in its history, the Cologne-based company is significantly expanding its additives portfolio in particular and will become one of the world’s major actors in this growing market.

 

Very strong performance in the segments

 

Sales of the Advanced Intermediates segment in the first quarter of 2017 were EUR 518 million, 12 percent above the prior-year figure of EUR 463 million.Despite being held back by higher energy costs and a delay in passing on increased raw material prices, EBITDA pre exceptionals advanced by 2 percent to EUR 91 million, compared with EUR 89 million a year earlier. In particular, higher demand and the expansion of volumes had a positive impact on earnings.The EBITDA margin pre exceptionals was 17.6 percent, against 19.2 percent in the prior-year quarter.

 

Sales in the Performance Chemicals segment rose by 14 percent in the first quarter of 2017, to EUR 607 million, against EUR 533 million a year earlier. EBITDA pre exceptionals advanced by 5 percent to EUR 103 million, compared with the prior-year level of EUR 98 million. Growth was driven by strong demand for additives, biocides and leather chemicals, as well as by the contribution from the Clean and Disinfect business acquired from Chemours, while higher energy costs and negative currency effects on the costs held back earnings. The EBITDA margin pre exceptionals was 17.0 percent, against 18.4 percent in the prior-year quarter.

 

In the High Performance Materials segment, sales increased by 15 percent to EUR 315 million, up from EUR 273 million a year earlier. EBITDA pre exceptionals increased by 26 percent to EUR 48 million, compared with EUR 38 million a year earlier. Growth was once again driven by expanded volumes in all product groups and regions, very high capacity utilization and a focus on higher-margin products. As a result, the EBITDA margin pre exceptionals was 15.2 percent, compared with 13.9 percent in the prior-year quarter.

 

Sales in the ARLANXEO segment climbed by 48 percent to EUR 948 million, compared with EUR 640 million a year earlier. EBITDA pre exceptionals increased by 27 percent to EUR 144 million, up from EUR 113 million in the first quarter of 2016. This development was driven by strong demand in Asia, efficient use of the global production network, and positive currency effects. The EBITDA margin pre exceptionals was 15.2 percent, against 17.7 percent in the prior-year quarter.

The world-leading USTER®QUANTUM 3 generation of yarn clearers is set to reach a notable milestone in the autumn months, when the one millionth unit will be produced at USTER headquarters in Switzerland. The market success of the clearer has been accelerated by the launch of the latest version ofthe USTER®QUANTUM 3, which offers new features targeting intelligent quality management at specific fashion-oriented applications.

 

USTER is preparing to celebrate the production of its one millionth USTER®QUANTUM 3 clearer, which has enjoyed unprecedented sales since its launch in 2010. Pioneering concepts such as Smart Limits and the YARN BODYhave made the clearer an attractive choice for more than thousandmills worldwide, and the introduction of the USTER®QUANTUM 3 Anniversary Edition in 2015 has increased that appeal significantly.

 

On-trend… and on-quality

 

Spinning mills need to act fast to take advantage of important fashion trends. But yarns which hit the spot in terms of aesthetic appeal must also meet the exacting quality standards required in certain of these specialized applications.

 

The latest edition of the successful USTER®QUANTUM 3 yarn clearer addresses both these demands, thanks to new features which allow spinners to deliver yarns which are on-trend and also on-quality.

 

Core Yarn Clearing and Color/Shade Variation are unique innovations which put spinners in control of quality and avoid claims and complaints in important applications such as stretch denim and sportswear, and in the newly-fashionable market for mélange and subtly-colored yarns.

 

The Core Yarn Clearing feature with USTER®QUANTUM 3 is the first-ever automated solution to monitoring and assuring the quality of yarns with an elastane center encased by a cotton or synthetic outer. Fabrics with stretch and fancy slub effects created in this way continue to be extremely popular in both fashion items such as denim jeans and in functional garments and sports clothing.

 

Common problems when producing these yarns can occur when the inner elastane component is either missing or positioned off-center within the wrapper element. The Core Yarn Clearing feature uses powerful sensors and algorithms to detect any such problems and ensures that downstream customers receive a stretch yarn which perfectly meets their specifications. Using the built-in Smart Limits facility, the correct tolerances can be set quickly and easily, so that any bobbins containing core defects are blocked and removed.

 

The new Shade Variation feature of the USTER®QUANTUM 3 overcomes several potential problems which can lead to unacceptable color and shade differences. This is particularly important for spinners operating in the growing market for mélange and color-effect yarns. Here, human error can cause bobbins of differing colors or shades to be accidentally mixed in a single yarn lot.

 

If that occurs, the problem can be difficult or impossible to identify in the yarn with the naked eye. And a single rogue bobbin can ruin a yarn lot, leading to disastrous and conspicuous results such as a barré effect in the final fabric. The risks of a mistake are often magnified by the insufficiently controlled process,inadequate lighting conditions in mills, and the possibility of operatives with poor eyesight or imperfect color vision.

 

Today, latest technology in the USTER®QUANTUM 3 and its Shade Variation (SV) facility provides a separatedclearing channel which deals specifically with color deviations. When clearing limits are set, the SV feature immediately starts checking the bobbin as it runs on the winding machine, after which the Continuous Shade Variation (CSV) takes over to monitor the entire length of the bobbin, based on reference data which enables detection of even the most subtle variations in mélange yarns.

 

Tradition of innovation

“It’s more that we hoped for, how much the new Core Yarn Clearing and the Color/Shade Variation features have been appreciated. And we are proudto have already reached the milestone this year of one million USTER®QUANTUM 3clearers sold, thanks to this boost,” says Andreas Gantenbein, Product Manager Yarn Clearing within Uster Technologies. The effort USTER makes to maintain its strong innovation tradition has once again been recognized by spinners worldwide. This success will be celebrated on the day the one millionth clearer is produced. Whenever USTER stages an event of this type, the company reaffirms its continuing commitment to innovation. “Yarn clearers will help customers keep in step with fashion trends – and will always be developed to be a sound investment for the future,” says Gantenbein.

Indian cotton crop may see about 20 percent increase in the new season.

 

India’s current cotton crop for the season ending this September is expected to be about 34.1 million bales (170 Kgs each). However, next season’s crop (October 2017-September 2018) could be up to 20% higher than this current season.

 

Mr. M. M. Chockalingam, Chairman and Managing Director In-charge of state owned cotton company, Cotton Corporation of India (CCI), spoke this morning with this scribe and advised that farmers are enthusiastic in planting more cotton, next season. Mr. Chockalingam predicted that the crop increase would be about 15-20 percent next year.

 

This year, farmers in India have realized good price for cotton, which has not been the case in grains.  Cotton farmers have received Rupees 6000 for one quintal of seed cotton (Kapas), whereas, the minimum support price set by government has been only Rupees 4160 per quintal.

 

Pulse grain production has been high this year, which has resulted in lesser price for producers. Prices of edible oil seeds has been stagnant.

 

Higher price expectation is driving more cotton planting, which is clear from the plantings so far in northern areas such as Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan. Seventy percent sowing has been complete in this region already.

 

The weather seems to be favorable for the next season, with early and above average rainfall expected in cotton planting zones in the country. Overall increase will come from increases in acreage and yield.

 

 

According to a source based in Mumbai, who has been in the cotton business for many decades, the higher price scenario will result in the diversion of plantings in pulses and edible oil seeds towards cotton.

 

Megatrend Individualisation and Industrie 4.0 at Texprocess

The demand for individual products, whether shoes, garment or the countless configuration possibilities in the automotive sector, has been growing steadily for years. The desire for individuality, cost reduction and sustainability requires both new production procedures and new business approaches and increases need in automation and digitalization for the entire value chain in production.

 

“For example, a flexible and top-quality garment production for customer-specific garment is much in demand”, said Elgar Straub, Managing Director of VDMA Textile Care, Fabric and Leather Technologies on the occasion of the VDMA press conference at Texprocess trade fair. To achieve this goal, flexibility is a must, particularly for manufacturers of sewing and garment technology and of machines for processing technical textiles. First microfactories are already being set up. “A common database and data safety are conditions for digital interlinking of design, processing and logistics of garment and technical textiles”, continued Straub. “Due to cloud solutions, the data must remain available throughout the complete value chain.” Traditional production lines will continue to exist in parallel.

 

Digitisation and Industrie 4.0 in specific terms

With garment production cycles becoming faster and faster, requirements for an efficient system to process materials are constantly increasing. At the VDMA press conference of Textile Care, Fabric and Leather Technologies, the companies EFKA, ShangGong Europe Group (Members of the Group: Dürkopp Adler, Pfaff Industriesysteme and Maschinen GmbH & KSL) and Veit presented a current overview on the latest Industrie 4.0 developments in the sewing and garment technology sector as well as for machines processing technical textiles.

 

EFKA’s Industrie 4.0 concept shows a high degree of flexibility and compatibility. On one hand, their drives can run a wide range of different machinery and on the other hand, they are flexible in the way of communication with different kind of software solutions.

 

With ShangGong Group, Europe’s QONDAC Networks production plants with up to 1500 sewing machines will be monitored online, its productivity is measured and its status analyzed at any time.

 

“Veit Fusion 4.0” provides a decentralized control of the fusion process network where the machine can communicate with other machines, the goods and itself. With “Veit Pressing 4.0”, ironing machines can be integrated into the customer’s own company network. The machine can report on maximum pressure, ironing temperature, process times and the ironing program used. In combination with a scanner, the ironed goods can also be registered on the basis of a two-dimensional code or RFID technology. The production chain of each individual item thus becomes transparent. With this technology, there are no more limits to material flow investigation and the communication between product and machine.

 

VDMA Textile Care, Fabric and Leather Technologies is sponsor of Texprocess

 

Texprocess is the leading international trade fair for processing textile and flexible materials. From May 9-12, 2017, international exhibitors are presenting their latest machines, equipment, procedures and services for manufacturing textile and flexible materials to trade visitors for the fourth time. Texprocess is taking place together with Techtextil, the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and non-woven fabrics.

 

Itema, the world’s largest privately held provider of advanced weaving solutions, including best-in-class weaving machines, spare parts and integrated services, finalized the agreements to acquire 61% of shares in Lamiflex, leading supplier of technical composite products, and a minority stake in NoeCha, provider of high-tech, wide-format printing solutions.



The acquisitions are part of a wider strategy of Itema and its shareholders, namely the Radici family with 60% of shares and the Arizzi e Torri families with the remaining 40%, to ultimately accelerate the continued expansion and secure the long-term profitability of Itema by diversifying into complementary, high-growth markets through stakes in innovation-driven companies which offer significant economies of scale to fuel the joint development of each others’ core businesses.

 

“Following a remarkable five-year period in which Itema Group has doubled the sales of its weaving machines with consecutive, double-digit growth per annum, the Company is now ready to strengthen its leadership, to quicken the pace of its expansion and to accelerate its global reach through targeted acquisitions,” said Carlo Rogora, CEO of Itema Group.

 

“We chose Lamiflex and NoeCha due to their forward-thinking missions and innovative approaches, which perfectly match our dedication to supply top-performing, advanced machinery. Combining our strengths, we will no doubt reach new heights of success in the development and manufacturing of innovative, highly technological products. Itema will guarantee to Lamiflex and NoeCha Customers worldwide a structured organization, based on lean manufacturing concepts in its world-class production sites and on a global network of agents and distributors,” continued Rogora.

 

 

“We are confident that this first round of acquisitions will act as an important launch-pad for our diversification strategy and will bring positive results in the nearest future, creating significant synergies and adding value for our Customers and Shareholders.”

 

Headquartered in Ponte Nossa, Bergamo province, Lamiflex specializes in composites materials, such as carbon, glass and Kevlar and offers a portfolio of innovative solutions and patented new products with exceptional versatility and adaptability for industrial applications, catering to industries as wide-ranging as weaving machinery, medical and aerospace, among others.

 

NoeCha, also Bergamo-based, is a quickly-scaling-up young company which offers high-tech printing solutions, such as the revolutionary wide-format industrial UV-LED flatbed digital press, the NoeCha ONE, for photo-realistic, high impact graphics. NoeCha ensures excellent printability on different type and size of material up to 3.2x2meters at production speeds with a native 600dpi x 600dpi image resolution.

 

Itema Group’s move is set to create and stimulate significant synergies along the respective supply chains in which Itema, Lamiflex and NoeCha, as well as RadiciGroup companies operate and to grow not only in the textile machinery sector, but also to expand into new, highly innovative sectors, such as composites, and thus, together, be much more competitive than otherwise possible individually. These acquisitions will lead to optimizing processes and improving product performances, as well as providing advantages derived from a shorter, more sustainable supply chain, lessening the environmental impact of the joint operations, in line with the principles of a circular, greener economy.


 

2017 has started off on a positive note for Italian textile machinery manufacturers. For the first quarter, orders have increased both in Italy and abroad. ACIMIT president Raffaella Carabelli: "Orders for the start of 2017 confirm a positive trend in major foreign markets, and a climate of trust for Italy’s textile industry that is on the upswing."

 

The orders index for textile machinery compiled by ACIMIT, the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers, for the period from January to March, grew 24% compared to the same period in 2016. The index value stood at 113.7 points (basis 2010 = 100).

 

This growth regarded mostly markets abroad, where the index came in at an absolute value of 124.1 points (+26%). In Italy, the increase compared to the period from January to March 2016 was 16%, with an absolute value of 71.5 points.

 

ACIMIT president Raffaella Carabelli commented on the results, “The index data for the  first three months of the year confirm the positive signs ascertained by our businesses in various foreign markets.”

 

The dynamic trend for Italy’s domestic market originates, on the other hand, with the National Industrial Plan 4.0. “A renewed climate of enhanced trust is currently perceived in the textile sector,” states Raffaella Carabelli, “triggered by the government’s commitment to enact a range of significant incentives for the Country’s manufacturing system.

 

Background on the Italy’s textile machinery industry and ACIMIT

 

ACIMIT represents an industrial sector comprising around 300 manufacturers (employing close to 12,000 people) and producing machinery for an overall value of about 2.7 billion euros, with exports amounting to more than 85% of total sales.
