Our state of the art plant is divided into five main divisions:
- Inspection & Quality Control
Yarn is a continuous strand of staple or filament fibers arranged in a form suitable for weaving, knitting, or other form of fabric assembly. Almost all our yarns are sourced from local suppliers in single or already plied yarns, in a variety of tex and denier ranges. Our preparation department is equipped with machinery with the capability to twist medium to course yarn counts, including assembling of multiplied yarns and winding machines producing parallel and conical packages. We do offer commission yarn winding and twisting of certain yarn types. These are just some of the reasons we are the leading Industrial Fabric Manufacturers.
Here the yarns from different cones are combined together to form a sheet. The importance in warping is to preserve the yarn elongation and maintain it at uniform level. This increases the performance during weaving in terms of low end breakage rate
Weaving is the process of combining warp and weft yarns to make a woven fabric. The lengthwise yarns are called warp; and crosswise yarns are called weft. Most woven fabrics are made with selvages on the sides, which avoids unravelling. Our weaving plant is equipped with rigid and flexible Rapier and Picanol weaving looms. These are heavy duty industrial weaving machines with adaptions and additions that allow us to handle a wide range of various fabric constructions from lightweight synthetics to heavy weight cottons.
In house calendering and heat treatment machines capable for setting fabrics to requirements. Calendering is used to smoothen a fabric often used as finish in filtration fabrics. Chemical treatment line allowing for coating of fabrics such as water repellancy, FR and others. External dyehouse are used for scouring and dying of fabrics.
Here the fabric is visually inspected and examined, searching for flaws and irregularities in the cloth as well as ensuring the properties of the cloth are within specification. The fabric is then graded as per its quality level in terms of fabric weight, shading color, number, and size of the defects
