How to achieve desired fabric consumption in engineered strips T-Shirts?

On August 2, 2009


It’s a big struggle to achieve desired fabric consumption when it’s a engineered strips.

These are variables that can decide fabric consumption.

Most important variable is stripe width or repeat size. No rocket science, but bigger the repeat, higher fabric.But we can achieve higher marker or fabric efficiency using these listed variables.

IF factories have GGT, then

1.WE assign match points on sleeves and body armhole while making markers using GGt

2. These match Points are values that are input in GGt, as per repeat size of engineered strips in markers. i.e. distance between two strips is measured and same distance is put as value in marker,

3. Thus GGT automatically keeps sleeves and body parts, at equi distance OR placing them at same position where strips are and thus factory cut pieces in one single cut.

4. This is most easy , economical and best consumptions achieved this way. Efficiency of markers this way is 70% and factories usind this, no one can beat price.

Factories who don’t have GGt, they

1. They cut fronts and sleeves in block patterns. Block patterns have excess margins equal to strip repeat one side.

2. Once cut block, they person match strips of front to sleeve one by one, by hand on pin pegs.

3. There after these are cut using band knife machines.

4. This process is time consuming and have more wastage and more labor intensive but accuracy and quality is guaranteed and only variation is, if any, because of human error.

Also when we have strips, factories can’t cut long or 8 way or 12 way markers, v/s that’s common when we cutting solids.

Longer the marker, better is efficiency and

Some of our factories still able to do long markers using block cutting and there after manual cutting/band knife cutting, thus saving cost.
