Is it possible to guarantee quality in textile manufacturing?

There are several problems that are common in manufacturing, such as difficulty in stock control, low productivity, the purchase of poor quality raw materials, among others. As a result, many companies believe that there is no way to guarantee quality in textile manufacturing, but this is a mistake.

In this article we will not only show that it is possible, but we will also show you how to solve them. Check it out!


Review of process steps

Person analyzing raw materials received at a textile factory.

It is important that processes are standardized and mapped precisely to be able to find where the problems are and identify bottlenecks. So if you don’t have a completely standardized process, start there.

Bottlenecks are the parts where there is an overload that affects productivity and the functioning of the manufacturing plant as a whole. They can be caused by equipment, employees and even the arrangement of equipment in spaces. That’s right, the way you organize equipment within the factory could be causing a bottleneck in your production.

But by reviewing the process steps this can be resolved and you can eliminate the restriction that is harming the quality of the manufacturing. Often the processes themselves are outdated, they were created many years ago and are not updated or the equipment is very old, preventing it from being able to maintain the agility and dynamics that innovations provide.


Controlling the input of inputs is the guarantee of quality

Once you identify the problem, you can look for ways to resolve it. If it is the raw material that is generating waste of materials and excess second-quality products, the control and receipt of materials needs to be carried out more rigorously.

To this end, there are already machines that check the fabric and provide information about areas that have defects such as stains and holes. With this information in hand, you will be able to check the quality of the raw material received and classify suppliers, so that you will be able to contact them to resolve possible problems and, as a last resort, change suppliers.

Process automation to ensure quality in manufacturing

Process automation also helps ensure the quality of textile manufacturing. Old, manually operated equipment can cause failures, whether due to worn parts or improper handling. Therefore, automation can help on several fronts.

It is possible, for example, to make the mesh relaxing process automatic using a relaxer. This equipment reduces the time to carry out the process and can also help eliminate dimensional defects in cut pieces, provide assertive fitting and much more.

Another example is the sample washer. With it, instead of using domestic washing machines and having to use a large amount of cloth, a lot of water and wait for a long time, it is possible to carry out the process with a small sample in twenty minutes and still collect the shrinkage percentage of the mesh automatically.
