Industrial Cutting of Textile Materials, Second Edition, is a comprehensive guide to cutting room operations, offering step-by-step information on processes, technologies and best practice. This new edition is updated to present the latest advances in automated cutting technology, including advanced spreading methods and machines, advanced knife cutting systems, and pattern matching methods processing garment, home and technical textiles. Drawing on her extensive practical experience, the author begins by reviewing initial steps, such as unloading, sorting and quality control of materials, before discussing subsequent operations, including lay planning and marker making, manual and automated spreading and cutting, fusing of cut components, and final work operations such as sorting cut components for further joining.

The book also covers manual and advanced automated marker making, spreading and cutting methods for more intricate fabrics, such as striped fabrics and fabrics with check, motif and border patterns, narrow lace and fabrics with pile.

With essential information on cutting room operations and best practice, this book provides engineers, technologists and managers with the knowledge they need to maximize accuracy and efficiency, to control production processes effectively, and to improve product quality. The book also enables academics and students engaged in the field of textile and clothing technology to gain a solid understanding of cutting room procedures.

  • Provides production managers, technologists, and other manufacturing specialists of textile goods the knowledge they need in order to increase raw material utilization and with it reduce productions costs, maximise cutting process efficiency, control production processes effectively, and improve ready product quality
  • Describes spreading and cutting of garment, home and technical textiles
  • Includes guidance on best practice dealing with intricate fabrics
  • Enables readers to benefit from the latest advances in automated textile cutting technologies

An increasingly important feature across the technical textile industry is to produce textiles faster and to have more effective new product development (NPD). New product development in textiles: Innovation and production not only provides a fascinating overview of how products are launched, but is also a source of practical guidance for developing textile products successfully.

Part one provides a general overview of innovation and textile product development that introduces the reader to the principles of developing and defining new products. Part two goes on to discuss a collection of international studies from across the textile industry. Chapters describe actual new product development projects, identifying the problems that were faced and what can be learnt from these projects, such as customer co-creation and methods for reducing the risk in NPD. Topics range from technical textiles and apparel to the end uses of textiles used within the automotive and packaging industries.

With its distinguished editor and international team of expert contributors New product development in textiles: Innovation and production is an essential guide for academics and textile development professionals worldwide, in sectors ranging from design, production and marketing through to management.Provides a fascinating overview of how products are launchedA source of practical guidance for developing textile products successfullyCovers topics from technical textiles and apparel to the end uses of textiles used within the automotive and packaging industries
Smart coatings can produce coatings that offer above and beyond the normal functions of a coating, these range from improving the performance of fabrics, producing new forms of materials to providing decoration. This book reviews a variety of topics about textile coatings and laminates and aims to provide a stimulus for developing new and improved textile products.

The first part of the book introduces the fundamentals of textile coatings and laminates, addressing general areas such as coating and laminating processes and techniques, as well as base fabrics and their interaction in coated fabrics. Part two discusses different types of smart and intelligent coatings and laminates for textiles. Topics include microencapsulation technology, conductive coatings, breathable coatings and phase change materials and their application in textiles.

With its highly distinguished editor and array of international contributors, Smart textile coatings and laminates is a valuable reference book for chemists, textile technologists, fibre scientists, textile engineers and all those wishing to improve and understand the developments in textile coating and laminating technology. It will also be suitable for researchers in industry or academia.Reviews a number of issues surrounding textile coatings and laminatesDiscusses the fundamentals of textile coatings and laminates addressing processes and techniquesExamines types of smart and intelligent coatings and laminates for textiles, including microencapsulation technology, conductive and breathable coatings
