Splic­ing loss

Perfect Sourcing - - Technology Update -

The fab­ric that is used as the spic­ing over­lap is a waste gen­er­ated dur­ing the process. This over­lapped fab­ric waste is known as the Splic­ing Loss, which is af­fected by the dis­tance be­tween the splic­ing points. To min­i­mize this splic­ing waste, mark­ers should be made to en­sure min­i­mal fab­ric over­lap­ping.

As a gen­eral prac­tice in gar­ment fac­to­ries, splic­ing over­lap is not cal­cu­lated and ac­counted for. Fac­to­ries do keep track of other fab­ric losses like end bits, dam­ages, etc, but when it comes to splic­ing, they used the avail­able fab­ric as it is. To op­ti­mize this whole process, set­ting up of a stan­dard splic­ing over­lap is cru­cial. This will en­sure that lay men are aware of the amount of splic­ing over­lap they need for that par­tic­u­lar lay. In ab­sence of this stan­dard, there are two sce­nar­ios that can emerge:

1. Ex­cess over­lap, which is sim­ply un­nec­es­sary fab­ric wastage. Also, since over­lap is more, there is a pos­si­bil­ity of get­ting more than planned cut pieces, which then af­fects the ac­cu­racy dur­ing the bundling and num­ber­ing pro­cesses.

2. Less than re­quired over­lap, re­sult­ing in in­com­plete cut pieces and/or less than the re­quired num­ber of cut pieces, thus gen­er­at­ing the need for panel re­place­ments which could have been avoided.

Splic­ing should prefer­ably be done for smaller pat­tern pieces and should be avoided for larger gar­ments like trousers. For big­ger gar­ments, ad­just­ments us­ing end bits prove more ef­fi­cient than splic­ing.

Com­pa­nies like Thread­sol‘s of­fer­ing prod­ucts in­tel­locut pro­vides you ‘Start’ and ‘End’ splice points which help in set­ting up a stan­dard for splic­ing over­lap. This en­sures no wastage dur­ing the splic­ing process. It also en­sures ef­fec­tive plan­ning while work­ing closely with the CAD setup in your fac­tory.
