Garment Production: Innovative Technologies to Streamline Production

If you run a garment manufacturing business, you don’t need to be reminded just how competitive the industry has become, and we are all looking for ways to boost production and cut back on costs. There are specialist companies that focus on research and development, to introduce new and innovative devices that streamline the production process, and they might be able to help you refine your production processes.

Prefabricated Shuttles

These devices improve the embroidery processes, while also reducing the amount of waste, and this state-of-the-art embroidery bobbin keeps the yarn smooth, while helping to keep a uniform tension. By reducing embroidery machine stops, you can improve production, and the quality of the embroidery is also improved.

GEM Polyester Embroidery Thread

Designed for high quality embroidery output, this yarn comes in more than 400 colours and has a very long shelf life, which allows for bulk purchases. This thread is formaldehyde free, so it can be used for baby garments, and it meets the Oeko-Tex 100 Standard 100 certificate, and has the following benefits:

  • Smooth operation up to speeds of 1,200 rpm
  • Excellent colour fastness
  • Suitable for all forms of fabric
  • Adds softness and shine to the garment
  • Knotless technology

GEM Temporary Adhesive Spray

If you need temporary bonding, there is a top-quality spray that does not stain and aids with precision stitching. This product reduces pre-stitching preparation by bonding fabrics together and it is made to very high standards, plus it can be used with multi-head embroidery. Another important aspect of this product is that it does not harm machinery in any way, and it contains no CFCs, which is another plus.

Sourcing Suppliers

Using the Internet, it is very easy to source specific companies that supply the garment industry, and you should be able to find suppliers for your particular niche without any issues. Threads, fabrics and essential machine accessories that can help to either improve or streamline the manufacturing process can all be located with online searches.

Factory Visits

When looking for specific products, it pays to visit any potential supplier to ensure that their products and processes are up to standard, and with Thailand having such a good reputation in the garment production industry, Bangkok is a great venue to find the best products and accessories for machine embroidery.

Reviewing your Processes

We often forget to review our machine processes, what with so much going on, yet this can often improve production and also reduce wastage. Regardless of the product, there are always ways to improve the manufacturing process, and even a small change might mean producing an extra 3 or 4 dozen items a week, which is always welcome.

Keeping abreast with new technology and products will ensure that you take advantage of new innovations, and by investing a little time in looking at your processes, you can improve production.

There is always room for improvement, and by taking stock of everything, you can often find ways to improve both products and processes, which gives you more of a return.
