GARMENT FINISHINGFACULTY IN CHARGE- Mr. VASANT KOTHARI SUBMITTED BY: RAJEEV SHARAN DFT (AP-06)
SPOTTINGo Paint, Oil and Grease (POG) spotting agents are used to remove spots from garments by professional textile cleaners.o They are sprayed on spots before and after garments are processed through the garment cleaning machine.o POG spotting agents containing trichloroethylene (TCE) and per- chloroethylene (PERC) are used widely by the garment cleaning industry .
SPOTTING PROCESSES HAZARDSo TCE and PERC are carcinogens and are heavily regulated in California. Spotters and other employees in garment cleaning plants are exposed to these dangerous chemicalso Use of these spotting agents will make the waste streams generated by the non-PERC garment cleaning processes hazardous .
FOLDINGo Creases result from applying pressure to folds.o If we wrap a piece of paper around a cylinder, it will be easy to straighten again. If we make a fold in the paper, it will be more difficult. If we apply pressure along the fold, the crease will be even more pronounced. Clothing is no different.
FOLDINGIMPROPER FOLDINGo 1) folds that will "set", producing creases, ando 2) garments moving (rubbing) against one another, producing wrinkles (tiny folds) in the fabric, that will also "set".o The oft-suggested trick of wrapping individual clothing items in plastic dry-cleaning bags or tissue paper helps to reduce wrinkling (problem 2, above), but does nothing about the creases.o Another popular suggestion, that of rolling clothing, reduces — though does not eliminate — the number of folds (problem 1), but usually increases wrinkling.
SHIRT FOLDING MACHINEo This machine is specially designed for the packing of shirts. The main benefit of this table is correct and smooth shaping of shirt collars and easy packing. It has the capacity of giving an output of 300 to 400 shirts per shift of 8 hrs. FEATURES : - Competitive price - Adjustable head for choosing collar size. - Button guard for perfect center line and elegant shirt fold - Pressed shirt collar to be round and smooth - Stainless steel folding plate.
ADVANCED TECHNOLOGYo Sensors will detect clear materials All motors are controlled by frequency inverters to ensure: - Precise folds - Smooth start of all drive systems - Reduced maintenance by eliminating the need for brake motors
JAM-PREVENTION SYSTEMo The folder will automatically reject any missed piece that is likely to result in a jam in order to provide uninterrupted operation.o If a jam does occur, the PLC will only shut off the actual section where the jam occurred.o The items that were already in the machine in front of the jam will be folded and clear the machine in order to minimize any down time.
PACKING & PACKAGING REQUIREMENTSo Ensure the carton is strong and secure enough to protect the contents in the normal transport and distribution processes according to the standardso Ensure the contents of the carton are packed as per instructionso Ensure the labeling/marking are as per requirementso Eliminate the outer shipper carton where inners are the distribution unito Ensure the carton does not display any misleading information or unrelated printed matter, - for example, brands or product names unrelated to the cartons content.
It is important to:o Use the correct size carton for the goods you need to pack to minimize free space in cartono Ensure that packages form a stable unit loado Ensure that cartons are adequately sealed to support the contento Do not use brown paper wrappingo DO NOT use any form of strappingo DO NOT use carton stapling
HANGERSo The hangers must be secured with a cable tie. All film specifications remain the same as for pre-made bags.o The supplier must ensure that the heat setting is adequate to seal the bags sufficiently without overheating and weakening the bag strength.o Garments to hang loose in bags. Bottom edge of garment is to remain above bottom edge of bag. Hanger opening is to face left.
NOTE: Garments must have no more that 6cm to 12cm excess at the bottomheat-sealed or taped closed.
FLAT BED FUSING PRESSESo The flat bed fusing press has been designed with versatility and ease of use very much in mind.o Its large 120cm x 50cm heated top p late makes it suitable for use in the manufacture of many different types of garments & textiles.o With a temperature range of up to 200C, it can be used with a wide selection of todays modern fusible interlinings (& heat transfers etc.)
OPEN SIDED ROLLER FUSING PRESSES o Up to 45cm fusing width o End less fusing length o Conveyer belt fusing system o Silicone rubber pressure roller o Open sided to allow wider items o 20 to 200C temperature o Compact & affordable o 1.5Kg/cm pressure. o Independent belt tracking system.
STEAM IRONo It is comfortable and easy to use, with its design meeting the requirements of prolonged industrial use.o As well as its 1kW heating element & useful 225mm long base plate, operators can choose from two different iron handle styles.o The standard M28/11 steam iron features a traditional cork style handle and the optional M28/1 model features an ergonomic handle. Both have a well positioned micro switch for easy operation.
FINISHERS FOR DIFFERENT GARMENTS UNIVERSAL FINISHERo This universal finisher is the preferred equipment for small to middleo sized laundries and textile care plants.o It is available in a steam heated version.o Spin-dry shirts, blouses, smocks or dustcoats are finished quickly withouto creases by the high performance silent hot-air fan.o Dry garments, such as jackets, coats, etc., can also be finished on thiso machine.o The individual functions are called step by step on the kicker plate.
SHIRT FINISHERo Shirt Finisher provides an excellent and complete finish for washed, pre-treated or wet processed shirts.o The shirts are placed on hangers, buttoned or unbuttoned prior to the finishing operation.o Seam tensioning elements, custom shaped shoulder forms, electrically heated pressing plates for the shirt pocket, the integrated suction plate and stretch-control are standard features.
