Over the past few years, the gar­ment man­u­fac­tur­ers from big cities like Mum­bai and Ban­ga­lore are fol­low­ing the trend of shift­ing their base to Ahmed­abad, a grow­ing ap­parel man­u­fac­tur­ing hub in In­dia. Since the city is al­ready es­tab­lished as one of the big­gest tex­tile mar­kets in In­dia, the scope of garmenting is nat­u­ral here. Thus, many prom­i­nent ma­chine sup­pli­ers are eye­ing to en­cash upon the emerg­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties gen­er­ated by the grow­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers in Ahmed­abad who are also set­ting up their pro­duc­tion units here. Hashima, a Ja­pan- based pi­o­neer in nee­dle de­tect­ing ma­chines and fus­ing ma­chines,is one such com­pany which is en­larg­ing its foot­prints in the city.

Global com­pe­ti­tion and ris­ing labour costs are push­ing ap­parel man­u­fac­tur­ers to put their hands in the ma­chin­ery with which they can bring down their cost of op­er­a­tion sig­nif­i­cantly. Sup­port­ing ap­parel man­u­fac­tur­ers to pro­vide an in­no­va­tive edge to their prod­ucts and to of­fer aes­thet­i­cally im­proved gar­ments to the mar­ket, Hashima is lead­ing the fus­ing ma­chines and nee­dle de­tec­tor mar­ket. “Ahmed­abad is on our cards as, in 1 or 2 years, this city will mas­sively grow in garmenting. The growth is sup­ported by the Gov­ern­ment ini­tia­tives as well as the peo­ple who al­ready have tex­tile mills here and are in­clin­ing to­wards gar­ment man­u­fac­tur­ing too,” shares Khaja Nasirud­din, Coun­try Man­ager – In­dia, Hashima.

To tap the Ahmed­abad mar­ket, Hashima dis­played one of its best­selling fus­ing ma­chines HP 450 MS at GTE ’17. The ma­chine in­cor­po­rates an au­to­matic belt warp­ing preven­tion de­vice which is equipped with di­rect limit switch. With a fus­ing belt width of 450 mm, it has a max­i­mum fus­ing speed of 8.7 me­tres/minute. Ad­di­tion­ally, the ma­chine is equipped with an in- built rub­ber driv­ing roller for non-slip driv­ing. The ro­tary strip- off de­vice is the USP, as claimed by Hashima, which is used for strength­en­ing the strip­ping off func­tion and avoid trans­form­ing of the fin­ished fab­rics.

Ac­cord­ing to Khaja, the com­pany got some se­ri­ous queries all through the 3- day event of GTE and it has also sewn deal with a sig­nif­i­cant

Sup­port­ing ap­parel man­u­fac­tur­ers to pro­vide an in­no­va­tive edge to their prod­ucts and to of­fer aes­thet­i­cally im­proved gar­ments to the mar­ket, Hashima is lead­ing the fus­ing ma­chines and nee­dle de­tec­tor mar­ket.
