GARTEX 2017 PRO­MOTES TWO UP­COM­ING TRENDS: DIG­I­TAL PRINT­ING AND EM­BROI­DERY

Stitch World - - NEWS -

Gartex 2017, a three- day fair or­ga­nized by MEX Ex­hi­bi­tions, suc­cess­fully gar­nered the par­tic­i­pa­tion of vis­i­tors to make the ex­hibitors happy and will­ing to par­tic­i­pate again in the next edi­tion which is slated to be even more big. De­spite GST, the in­dus­try came in huge num­ber to add new cat­e­gories in their prod­uct bas­ket. An in­her­ent zeal for sig­nif­i­cant growth and ex­pan­sion was clearly re­flected at the event. Apart from small and medium play­ers, top- level com­pa­nies were also geared up to fur­ther en­hance their qual­ity and tech­nol­ogy.

Dig­i­tal print­ing seemed to rule the reign at Gartex 2017. Var­i­ous tech­nol­ogy com­pa­nies like Ep­son In­dia, DCC Print Vi­sion, Negi Sign Sys­tems, ColorJet In­dia, Ap­som Tech­nolo­gies, and Brit­o­mat­ics pre­sented their lat­est dig­i­tal prin­ters in this seg­ment un­der the theme ‘ DigiTex’. Team Stitch­World’s in- depth dis­cus­sion with many of the vis­i­tors at Gartex brought forth the emerg­ing dom­i­nance of dig­i­tal print­ing on fash­ion trends and the ap­parel mar­ket.

Em­broi­dery tech­nol­ogy providers like Aura Tech­nolo­gies, Ta­jima, Peayush Ma­chiner­ies, Baba Tex­tile Ma­chin­ery In­dia, Dol­phin Jing­wei Ma­chines, and Unix Stitch Ma­chines also marked their pres­ence at the fair with their dis­play of the lat­est em­broi­dery ma­chines for the in­dus­try. A key high­light of the em­broi­dery ma­chin­ery sec­tion was the multi- head em­broi­dery machine rang­ing from 18 heads to 90 heads. This proved the in­creas­ing in­cli­na­tion of the mar­ket to­wards large em­broi­dery ma­chines.

An­other seg­ment that at­tracted vis­i­tors were the ac­ces­sories and fab­ric com­pa­nies ex­hibit­ing at the fair such as Madura Coats, Pashu­pati Over­seas, Ma­hashakti Thread Mills, Nilesh Im­pex In­dia, Neenu Plas­tics, Syn­odic Car­ni­val etc.

How­ever, sewing and IT so­lu­tions seg­ment did not have an em­i­nent pres­ence at the fair. Me­hala Ma­chines, Fu­cen Sewing Ma­chines and Tukat­ech were among the few which stood out at the event. Me­hala Ma­chines dis­played its lat­est Siruba 747L high speed over­lock machine from its 700Q se­ries. The ro­bust de­sign of the machine in­te­grates the servo mo­tor, con­trol box and power switch into the machine it­self. R. Sel­van, Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor, Me­hala Ma­chines said, “747L can run at a speed of 8000 RPM, thus mak­ing it a suit­able so­lu­tion for home tex­tiles, gar­ments, and tech­ni­cal tex­tiles. This machine can yield 30% more pro­duc­tion than nor­mal over­lock machine.”

Tukat­ech dis­played its TUKA3D ( De­signer Edi­tion) which was launched at Tex­pro­cess 2017 and aims to re­duce the prod­uct de­vel­op­ment time. Umesh Gaur, Pres­i­dent-Asia, Tukat­ech averred, “If the time for even one sam­ple can be re­duced, it is an achieve­ment as it slashes the en­tire time­line by 10 days.” TUKA3D ( De­signer Edi­tion) can help ex­porters cre­ate a large ar­ray of sam­ples which are phys­i­cally not pos­si­ble. Ori­ent Craft, Timex Gar­ments, Brandix, Star Gar­ments have al­ready in­vested in this 3D soft­ware.

Key In­dian ap­parel man­u­fac­tur­ers like Ori­ent Craft ( Gur­gaon), East­man Ex­ports ( Tirupur), TCNS ( Noida), Black­ber­rys ( Gur­gaon), Af­ford­able Ex­ports ( Delhi), Fab­stract Cloth­ing ( Noida) were also seen at the fair. The fair wit­nessed vis­i­tors from Delhi, Noida, Su­rat, Ahmedabad, Kolkata and even from Doha ( Qatar).

Gau­rav Juneja, Di­rec­tor of MEX Ex­hi­bi­tions, op­ti­misti­cally in­formed, “We are very much sat­is­fied with the event as ex­hibitors gave us pos­i­tive feed­back about the qual­ity of visi­ta­tion. Our next edi­tion will be even big­ger and will have more va­ri­ety in terms of ex­hibitors.”
