Create text labels on both ends of fabric roll with Arahne

Tessitura Fratelli Grassi from Vertova, north of Bergamo, Italy, is an innovative family run contract weaving mill. The huge variety of the fabrics they weave, sparkled an idea in the young son of the third generation weaver, Diego Grassi. Instead of pasting or drawing labels to the roll (piece), why not weave it as initial and final part of the jacquard fabric.

Such woven label will not peel off, and no material is lost, since initial and ending part of the fabric is ruined in the finishing, anyway. Grassi's production is already fully integrated with ERP SpyderTex from Il Dato. ERP system sends XML requests to Arah Weave CAD server, which converts the fabric file to the appropriate loom file

“Arahne has upgraded Arah Weave CAD/CAM for weaving with capability to create text labels on the fly, and weave them as header and footer of every fabric order. Operator on the ERP can choose the text, size and weave for the label. Label ground continues from the main fabric, so that it does not create any problems in finishing” explained Mr. Dušan Peterc, the owner of Arahne.

Grassi's customers love this feature so much, that they contest the order, if the top woven label is missing. Never again will a weaver walk in the warehouse or finishing department, looking at the rolls of fabric, and not know immediately who ordered them. We accomplished this only with creative use of existing technology (Jacquard, Arahne CAD), no investment in hardware was necessary.

Founded in 1958 by Grassi Agostino, Tessitura Fratelli Grassi SNC has a long history and experience as jacquard weaving mill for third parties. They have specialized on a wide range of fabrics and designs, able to satisfy every need. With 62 looms with double width, they can weave furnishing fabrics, bed linen, curtains, table cloth. With a custom ERP system SpyderTex and versatile Arahne CAD, Tessitura Fratelli Grassi is able to communicate quickly with customers, updating daily work progress and warehouse stocks.

Arahne develops textile design software since 1992. During this time, Arahne engineers have developed three Arahne products that support different work processes in textile industry. Arah Paint enables designers to create seamless repeat patterns. Arah Weave supports all techniques in dobby and jacquard weaving, and can create files ready for weaving on industrial looms, or send them to the loom by network. Arah Drape helps designers, manufacturers and retailers in presenting their fabrics on various finished products. In 20 years Arahne has expanded its sales to over 40 countries on all continents.

Designers, converters and manufacturers all over the world continue to choose Arahne because of the fast response, willingness to meet their continued development requests, and high quality support.
