Innovative wet processing finishing system for garments
Aug '09
Wet processing, which improves dimensional stability, hand feel and garment appearance, is a significant procedure in knitwear production. The Hong Kong Research Institute of Textiles and Apparel and Hong Kong Productivity Council have joined hands to conduct a research on development of an Innovative Finishing System for Wet Processing of Garments and Accessories which keeps movement and agitation of the substrate under a controlled mode to minimise disturbance of the substrate conditions.

The project is now completed and a machine prototype has been developed for further commercialization. Mr M L Chueng, the key consultant of the machine development programme, spoke about its application, function and advantages, which includes; availability of computer controlled water discharge, rotating speed and temperature change, improvement in quality control due to computerized washing formula.

Delving on other features, he said, it is environmental-friendly as it consumes 30 percent less water and 17 percent less detergent, stainless machinery cover makes it more durable than traditional system, applicable for wool products, in particular delicate fabrics and the circulation system minimises garment distortion and felting caused by movement and agitation and also gave a comparison between the newly invented machine and the conventional models.

In particular the computerised control function enables a systematic approach of wet processing, a procedure which has always heavily relied on the experience of technicians and this function also helps decrease amount of defects and maintain stable quality.
