KARL MAYERs warp preparation machinery for cost-effective sizing in DENIM production
When Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis sold the first pairs of trousers with rivets on the pockets as tough, hard-wearing work clothing to gold miners in 1872, they could scarcely have imagined what treasure they had unearthed. The jeans, which were patented in May 1873, soon made their way from being work wear to being the teenagers favourite, and then onto the fashion scene. They have been setting the tone in the fashion world ever since to a greater or lesser extent. As the popularity of denim increased, steps were taken to improve the production technology at every stage from the weaving preparatory stage to final finishing.
Coordinated processing during weaving preparation
Direct beaming and sizing technology has a decisive
influence on the economic aspects and efficiency of the weaving preparatory
stage. User friendliness can be improved and output can be maximised if the
same manufacturer is responsible for coordinating the machinery for the direct
beaming, dyeing and sizing processes. The processes involved in weaving
preparation must be coordinated with the weaving operations in order to
optimise efficiency throughout the entire production chain. To ensure that all
the processes are coordinated with each other, each processing stage must meet
the requirements of the next processing stage.
