Visiting local production workshops and discussions with designers and textile producers is really what allows us to develop a fuller appreciation and outlook into a world filled with color and seeped in tradition and old-world techniques.Getting an interactive, hands-on experience, unlike any other by leading textile craftsmen offers us a fresh new perspective on the technical composition of Indian textiles as we pace ourselves through exquisite handmade garments adorned with silver and gold warq printing. With a textile designer at the helm, we leap into the sensitivity of blending block prints and traditional textile designs and accessories now taking the form of contemporary fashions. . A visit to a traditional block maker and printer provides us a peek into his collection of exquisite brass blocks, hand blocks which are no longer available and are priceless.

The air-jet texturing process is by far the most versatile continuous yarn texturing method. Production is economical and a variety of yarns can be produced to meet the needs of apparel, household and technical textiles. To study the effect of blend proportion on the physical characteristics of dry and wet blended air-jet textured yarns, multi filament yarns (fdy) were used as feeder yarns for the production of blended textured yarns in different proportions under dry, wet and single component wet conditions.Those blended yarns were used as weft with constant warp of PV spun yarn on CIMMCO Auto loom. The yarns and fabrics manufactured were tested and analyzed for various characteristics. In wet texturising, Polyester/Nylon blended yarns exhibit good loop stability with high nylon proportion. Bulk of Polyester/Nylon blended air-jet textured yarns decreases with increase in nylon proportion in dry as well as wet texturising. In comparison to the wetting of single component, pre-wetting of all the component of the feeder yarn results in high loop frequency. Drape, crease recovery, abrasion resistance and tensile properties are better achievable with Nylon 6 rich fabrics.
Colloquium on„Integrated Best Available Wastewater Management in the Textile Sector“September 19, 2018at Max-Planck-Institut für Festkörperforschung Lecture Hall 2D5, Heisenbergstraße 1, 70569 Stuttgart-BüsnauScientific Head: Dr.-Ing. Harald Schönberger University of Stuttgart Institute for Sanitary Engineering, Water Quality and Solid Waste Management (ISWA)Apart from cotton cultivation and the production of dyestuffs and optical brighteners, textile finishing – also called textile wet processing – is one of the environmental hotspots. The dominating emission mass stream from textile finishing is wastewater as practically all inorganic and most of the organic (more than 90 %) chemical compounds are discharged with wastewater. Emissions to air, although not negligible, and with solid wastes are of significant lower relevance. In addition, in many parts of the globe, water availability and water scarcity respectively are of increasing concern triggering the need to avoid, reduce or recycle textile wastewater.Against this background the colloquium will contribute to the development of integrated best available wastewater management practices in the textile sector. This comprises the minimisation of water, energy and chemicals consumption by process optimisation (process- and production-integrated measures) and the careful selection of chemicals products. The latter means that the chemical products should be free of substances which are non-biodegradable or which are toxic or do have a negative impact on aquatic life.As textile wastewater pollution cannot be fully prevented at source, the colloquium also focusses on its advanced and effective treatment with special consideration of its recycling in case of limited water availability or scarcity.The programme covers the aforementioned aspects. Well-known speakers will present latest technologies and technical concepts to the audience from textile finishing industries, retailers and brands, techniques providers, textile associations and authorities from national, regional and local level, GIZ and representatives of the German Partnership for Sustainable Textiles.The colloquium is being organised by the “Forschungs- und Entwicklungsinstitut für Industrie- und Siedlungswasserwirtschaft sowie Abfallwirtschaft e.V. (FEI)” in cooperation with the Institute for Sanitary Engineering, Water Quality and Solid Waste Management (ISWA) of the University of Stuttgart and the Partnership for Sustainable Textiles.
Good product designs merge materials, technology and hardware into a unified user experience, one where the technology recedes into the background and people benefit from the capabilities and experiences available. By focusing on functional gain, critical awareness and emotive connection, even the most multifaceted and complex technology can be made to feel straightforward and become an integral part of daily life. Researchers, designers and developers must understand how to progress or appropriate the right technical and human knowledge to inform their innovations. The 1st International Smart Design conference provides a timely forum and brings together researchers and practitioners to discuss issues, identify challenges and future directions, and share their R&D findings and experiences in the areas of design, materials and technology.This proceedings of the 1 st Smart Design conference held at Nottingham Trent University in November 2011 includes summaries of the talks given on topics ranging from intelligent textiles design to pharmaceutical packaging to the impact of social and emotional factors on design choices with the aim of informing and inspiring future application and development of smart design.
Volume III of WORSTED PREPARING AND SPINNING. (DRAWING AND SPINNING). THE subjects dealt with in this volume are worsted drawing, including differential bobbin winding and mechanism, or cone drawing; French drawing; throstle spinning of the flyer, cap, and ring types; twisting; warp winding, and warping. Two comparatively long chapters are devoted to the subject of mechanical doffers for flyer and cap frames, which will be found to be fully considered and extensively illustrated. This book is the product of many years of practical experience, teaching, observation, study, and technical conversations. Many of the earliest books on weaving, textiles and needlework, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
Chemistry For Textile Students; A Manual Suitable For Technical Students In The Textile And Dyeing Industries, By NORMAN BLAND. PREFACE. The present time, being one of reconstruction, is an opportune moment for the presentation of this work, as it is, we believe, the first attempt to put forward a fairly compIetecourse on Chemistry for Textile Students suitable for the large and growing number of students who are taking up the technical study d textile industries from the truly scientific standpoint. It is a noteworthy feature of the last Census of Production, published in 1907, that, if we omit coal mining, whilst the cotton and woollen industries occupy respectively the first and fourth positions among the nine leading industries of the country as regards number of people employed, yet these industrics employ a smaller percentage of well-trained technologists than any of the others. With one exception, the productivity, or net putput in value per head of persons empIoyed, is less in the case of textile industries, apart from chemistry and dyeing, than that of the other great industries of the country, and this is no doubt largely due to the small percentage of well-trained technologists employed. Apart from the branches of bleaching and dyeing, it is only in very recent years that it has been realised, and only then by the most enlightened employers, that chemistry and physics play a most important part in the various operations used in the production of yarns and finished pieces. Recently, however, it has been recognised that Germany, in pre-W-ar times, Pas getting far ahead of us, principally through the,direct application of the sciences of chemistry, physics, and engineering to the procksses of nlanufactue of textiles. Iarge manufacturers are now beginning to realise that specially trained textile-chemists and textile-engineers must be engaged for special research work, if progress is to be made which wi1l enable us to keep pace with the competition of other great natons of the world. Germany was setting the pace in prewar times, nvhilst our manufacturers were resting largeIy on the laurels of the past, with the result that certain branches of our great textile industry were fast passing to the continent but in the near future other great nations of the world will have profited by the experience of Germany, and, if we are to maintain the traditions of the past, me must bring the sciences of chemistry and physics to bear to a greater degree on the study of textiles. It is a necessary part of the training of the textile technologist, who will late be engaged in the production of yarns and finished articles, that he should have received a thorough grounding in the sciences of chemistry and physics.
This study investigates the efficiency of manufacturing subsectors in the Zimbabwean economy. The study applied the panel data econometrics approach in the leading manufacturing subsectors from 1980-2005. The quantitative estimates using SFA shows that there are varying efficiencies across sub-sectors and through time. The log-likelihood test shows that there existed technical inefficiency in the production processes in the manufacturing sector. This shows that the industries could have improve their productive capacities with the same amount of inputs. The study shows that average technical efficiencies were falling since 1980 in the investigated sub-sectors. The highest efficiency scores were recorded in the canning and preservation of vegetables and fruits sub-sector which have an average of 98.1 percent efficiency level. The least efficient sectors are the textiles and footwear sectors which had averages of 32 percent and 33 percent efficient levels.
