NIFT-TEA conducts training for Tirupur garment designers
Sep '14
NIFT-TEA, a college of knitwear fashion has started a one week training program on Computer Aided Design and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) for fashion and clothing industry in Tirupur.

The program, to go on until September 16, 2014, is supported by the Technology Information Forecasting and Assessment Council (TIFAC) and Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) of Tirupur.

The training program is designed to provide an insight on the prospects of CAD/CAM oriented knitwear manufacturing, digital fashion designing techniques, creation of Techpacks, 3D sampling, etc.

The training is exclusively held for industrial fashion designers, pattern masters and chief executives of various garment units. The main objective of the training is to achieve the target of ‘zero defects’ in the garment manufacturing process, set by the Union Ministry of Textiles.

During the launch of the training program, the Joint Director of Textiles Committee, Union Ministry of Textiles, S Periasamy, said knitwear manufacturing units in Tirupur have to start assessing the skill inventory of the workforce to reduce manufacturing defects and increase productivity.

He said the garment factories also need to develop mass customization strategies and promote usage of CAD/CAM, to improve quality management and minimise wastages.

The chairman of academic development wing of NFIT-TEA, Srinivasan Ramaswamy said the major source of wastage in the garment factories is the fabrics during the cutting stage. This wastage can be reduced using computerized sampling techniques and virtual prototypes, he said.

Mr. Srinivasan said that TIFAC and NIFT-TEA would be conducting courses on sewing in the next phase of the training. (GK)
