How it has hap­pened in Tex­pro­cess 2018?


Dig­i­tal work­flow process at this year’s microfactory in Tex­pro­cess started with Ger­ber Tech­nol­ogy’s Ac­cuMark ® and Ac­cuMark 3D for Prod­uct De­sign. A de­sign file was op­ti­mised by lever­ag­ing cus­tom graph­ics and 3D sim­u­la­tion, then con­vert­ing pat­terns into a marker file, to be fur­ther sent for dig­i­tal print­ing. Dig­i­tal print­ing part­ner Kor­nit Dig­i­tal al­lowed de­signs to be di­rectly printed on fabric with its patented Fix­a­tion on the Fly (FOF) in­line pre­treat­ment process. Al­le­gro’ wa­ter­less so­lu­tion left a low eco-foot­print by elim­i­nat­ing steps such as pre-treat­ment, wash­ing, and steam­ing. Once the fabric was printed, Ger­ber’s Z1 sin­gle- ply cut­ter with Con­tourVi­sion™ came into play. An au­to­mated vi­sion-aided scan-to­cut sys­tem pro­cessed rolls of cus­tom printed tex­tiles by au­to­mat­i­cally gen­er­at­ing cut files to drive the process. Hen­der­son Sewing Ma­chine has been the sewing part­ner to this dig­i­tal microfactory. An au­ton­o­mous mo­bile robot, Om­ron Robot, col­lected bun­dled cut parts of the cushion cover to be stitched and trans­ported them to a ro­botic sewing sta­tion at the Hen­der­son Sewing De­signed Gantry Ro­botic Sewing Sta­tion.
