Processes

 

Safety MeasuresWe make sure we adhere to stringent quality policies in every task that we take to endeavour. Here’s a concise look into our production techniques.

FabricsFabrics

FabricsWe have first-rate experience in handling different types of fabrics that include Plaids, Flannels, Rib stops, Twills and Denims, from 100% cotton, cotton/synthetics blends, eco-friendly fibers such as flax, linen, etc., for both top and bottom wear. Teams of well-trained professionals take care of the fabric weave, texture, drape and pattern/design. Each meter of fabric is inspected against 4-point system where we accept a maximum of 30 points per 100 meters. Since fabric is the key input for apparel manufacturing, stringent systems are laid-down to control the quality of fabric right from the weaving stage.

SamplingSampling

We have a library of over 5000 designs to choose from. These range from designs for tops, bottoms, jackets, hats, etc., in various compositions such as 100% Cotton, 100% Rayon, Poly/Cotton Blends, Linens, Jute, Nylon, etc. We are capable of creating any type of new sample within 2 days. Our creative design team constantly works on new sample developments in Fabric and Made-ups.

CuttingCutting

CuttingThe cutting section is the 'nervous system' of the entire process that takes place during the production of apparels. This section is equipped with state-of-the-art machinery and an excellently trained work force. As far as quality is concerned, we have a trained team to inspect each component produced right from spreading to bundling. The produced components are inspected completely for horizontal and vertical line matching; if necessary the corresponding marker is also used.

SewingSewing

SewingWe are equipped with Japanese machinery spread over in different lines, to produce different types of apparels. In each line a flow chart is readily available which gives information such as Sequence of operation with grade, Machinery layout, Spot inspectors, etc. Before starting each style, the flow chart is developed by a group of experienced professionals who frequently carry out time and method studies as well as manning and utilization studies. The amount of garments to be produced is determined operation-wise.

To acquire greater and faster productivity we rely on modern machineries with Under Bed Trimmers, Edge cutters, etc, that are programmed and are computer controlled. These machines are mainly used in stitching operations such as Pocket Attach, Label and Collar Stitching.

Every machine has got some special attachments and guides to enhance production and quality of apparels. Some extraordinary machines like Pneumatic Collar, Cuff turning machine and Tabletop Boiler-Irons are used in the sewing floor to produce components of precise shape.

Productivity of each operator is monitored every hour and reasons for low productivity (if any) are analyzed. We normally conduct regular refresher and training programs wherein we teach the latest production techniques, inspection methods, etc.

Each apparel passes through an Automatic Thread Sucking machine that ensures the apparel is free from loose threads and other foreign particles.

InspectionInspection

InspectionThe purpose of inspection and quality control in each stage of production is to produce quality merchandise.
The key areas where inspection is done in sewing are as follows:

In-line/spot inspection
Final inspection
Open box analysis

In-line/spot inspection
Spot inspection is carried out in each line where we produce world-class merchandise. Trained inspectors are stationed at critical points of apparel manufacture like pocket, back yoke, etc., totaling to around 12 inspectors per line. Spot inspectors are trained with visual exhibits of defects that may occur before sewing each style.

Final inspection
Experienced final inspectors carry out the final inspection. Each garment is inspected in a stipulated manner to identify each and every minor defect that may occur.

Open box analysis
Just before the merchandise is passed on for final inspection, it is inspected as per the 'Acceptable Quality Level' stipulated by the buyer. A sample of 10% is usually considered for inspection. During inspection, standards of the fabric, folding, pressing, etc. will be verified.

Pressing and FinishingPressing and Finishing

Pressing and FinishingIroning is carried out by a group of proficient workforce. They are responsible for the type of folds, trims required and ambient temperature for a particular style. A quality check is done here to ensure conformity of the length and width of the fold, measure of tie gap, etc.
