Glory of khadi in 100 years
The clothes reflect the personality of individuals and can be used as a marker of a group, community, family, region and even country. Khadi is one such cloth that had played a key role in the freedom struggle of India and thus has been referred to as the ‘fabric of Indian independence’, narrate Shruti Gupta, Deepali Rastogi and Ritu Mathur.
Clothing is among the basic amenities required by the 1.2105 billion strong, and growing, population of India. The Indian textile industry, which caters to this need, has an estimated market size of $108 billion. There are two broad segments within the industry, namely the traditional hand-woven and hand-spun textile segments, and the modernised mill segment (Nair & Dhanuraj, 2016).
TT on Karl Mayer warpers: Endless possibilities
Karl Mayer sectional warpers offer the latest technology, and achieve the highest quality for optimum results in weaving.
Technical textiles are revolutionising the textile world due to the broadening of applications in end-use industries, such as automotive, construction, healthcare, and sports equipment and so on. New innovations off the weaving loom are used everywhere: in the construction of vehicles, in the medical sector, in wind turbines or as geotextiles
Everflow Petrofils develops fibre dyed lycra yarn
To overcome the difficulty in dyeing on lycra, Everflow Petrofils Ltd (EPL) has developed an alternate product, which is directly fibre dyed lycra yarn and need not be dyed again. This is a very low priced and faster way to get cotton lycra yarn suitable for shirting.
Impact on rotor & airjet yarn properties
Rotor spinning has a great potential to reduce the twist factor, which is the basic prerequisite for the production of knitted fabric with a soft touch; by support of a new spin box generation and its components, explains Nitin T Patil, Prof Dr SP Borkar, Dr Stephan Weidner-Bohnenberger and Marc Schnell.
MEVOPUR® for spun-bond fibres
Nonwoven fibres are used in applications including surgical gowns and masks, sterilization bags, medical filtration products, and a range of sanitary and hygienic pads, and wound-care dressings. Since pigments and additives used to colour or modify the polymer potentially increase the risk of extraction and interaction if the products come in contact with bodily fluids, these applications often require extraction and biological evaluation to standards such as US Pharmacopeia (USP) <87>,<88> or similar.
Handling pretreatment of nylon & spandex
GOLLER Spun Oil Washing Range is designed for pre-treatment processing and production of fabrics from elastic knitted weft nylon and spandex blended microfibre. The application of microfibre (unifilar fibre density is less than 0.5 dtex) and fine denier fibre (unifilar fibre density is less than 1.0 dtex.) is the rapidly-developed and much numerous one among the distinct fibres. The microfibre is featured by its large specific surface area, small bending rigidity and high light reflectivity. It owns both the wearing comfort of natural fibre (eg. silk) and the versatility of chemical fibre.
Spun yarn exports drop 36%
In July 2016, 83 countries imported spun yarn from India, with Bangladesh at the top, accounting for 18 per cent of the total value with imports rising 24 per cent year on year in terms of volume and 22 per cent in value. China ranked second in July and accounted for around 18 per cent of all spun yarn exported from India. Peru was the third largest importer of spun yarns. These three top importers together accounted for around 42 per cent of all spun yarns exported from India in July.
GOLLER Open-width Spun Oil Washing Range
GOLLER Open-width Spun Oil Washing Range can do continuous processing towards knitted fabric, solve the staining problem of silicone oil and keep excellent washing effect, writes Qiu Jianpeng of GOLLER Textile Machinery (Shenzhen) Co. Ltd. Warp knitted nylon/spandex fabric enjoys snug wearing, broad market demand and wide application. In order to enhance the twist of fibre, maintain the intensity of fibre and reduce break-up rate of fibre, generally, during the production of warp-knit nylon/ spandex fabric, it needs to add some specialised spinning agent.
