  7. 7. Straight Knife • Working Principal:  Two kind of powers are required to operate a Straight Knife  Motor power drive the reciprocating knife  Operator power drives the knife through the lay  The motor power needed is determined by  Height of the lay  Construction of the fabric  Curvature of the line being cut  Stroke of the blade  Greater power of the motor, greater blade movement to cut the fabric
  8. 8. Straight Knife • Advantage:  Comparatively cheap & transferred easily from one place to another place  Higher lay of fabric can be cut easily  Round corner can be cut more precisely then even round knife  Production speed is very good & fabric can be cut from any angle • Disadvantage:  Some time deflection may occur due to the weight o the motor  Knife deflection is high in risk, when lay height is too high  Sometime accident may happen
  9. 9. Different Types Of Knife Round Knife: Straight Knife: Wave knife Straight knife Notch knife
  10. 10. Band Knife • Features:  Band knife comprises a series of three or more pulleys, powered by electric motor  Cutting knife is endless in shape & flexible  Blade is usually narrower then on a straight knife  This method m/c is stationary but fabric is moveable  This is like saw mill cutter
  11. 11. Band Knife Advantage: Used when a higher standard of cutting accuracy is required Extensively used to cut very sharp corners small parts such as collars & cuff Used more in men’s wear than ladies wear Intensively risk of accident is low Possible to cut 90˚ angle of the fabric Disadvantage: Work load is high as m/c is stationary & fabric is moveable Not suitable for cutting large amount of garments parts Not possible to cut fabric directly Fabric wastage is high Power loss is high
  12. 12. Round Knife• Features:  Element of round knife:  Base plate & Electric motor  Handle for the cutter to direct the blade  Rotating circular blade  Blade diameter varies from 6-20 cm  Blade is circular  Blade is driven by electric power  Circular knife is driven by 1000-3500 cm •

  14. 14. Die Cutting • Features:  Mainly two types of die cuttings are available namely: Presses & Clickers  Main parts of all die cutting m/c are Blade, Ram Head, Die, Motor & Operating System of Ram  Die is made by metallic strip  Most useful to cut sharp & small parts
  15. 15. Die Cutting Working Principal: Die is prepared with metal strip according to the shape of pattern Die press generally has a cutting die just penetrates the cutting pad in order that the fibers of the lowest ply are completely separated For die cutting, the spreader spreads a lay to the required placement of dies The spread is cut into sections to allow transport to the cutting pad The gap between two dies 2-3 mm are placed when die is taken to cut fabric lay
  16. 16. Die Cutting • Advantage:  Extensively used to cut sharp corners of small parts of dress accurately  Most useful to cut at any shape or any angle  Comparatively less time required  Best method of cutting knitted fabric • Disadvantage:  Fabric loss is high due to the need of block of fabric lay  High labor cost  To change the style quickly is impossible  Difficult to cut large components of dress
  17. 17. Notcher Cutting M/C Features: Special type of cutting m/c & used in special case Used to cut notch in the edge of some components The invention of notcher m/c was done to make notch The notch can be made in U-shape or V-shape
