Perfect Sourcing - - Inside... -

GTE-2018 wit­nessed a large num­ber of com­pa­nies dis­play­ing their vari­ants in tech­nol­ogy that ad­dressed the is­sue of ef­fi­ciency and pro­duc­tiv­ity – the two ma­jor con­cerns of the in­dus­try.

Brother In­ter­na­tional (In­dia) Pvt Ltd dis­played a lock stitch in­dus­trial sewing ma­chine in­cor­po­rat­ing ‘Digi­flex’ Feed. Shar­ing thoughts with Team Per­fect Sourc­ing, toshi­aki ya­mada

(Sr Di­rec­tor ) of the com­pany said, “Brother is com­mit­ted to of­fer qual­ity, value and ap­pro­pri­ate pric­ing for its cus­tomer and it will con­tinue to do so in the com­ing times. In­dia is and will al­ways be a very im­por­tant mar­ket for us.”

The ma­chine’s in­de­pen­dent mo­tor con­trols the feed­ing mo­tion elec­tron­i­cally, which in turn keeps the feed of a va­ri­ety of ma­te­ri­als in check, such as stretch­able or ex­tremely thin and flimsy fab­ric, which is oth­er­wise dif­fi­cult to sew with a fine fin­ish. The ma­chine also has a bump sen­sor that de­tects sud­den bumpi­ness or thick­ness of the ma­te­rial dur­ing stitch­ing, which en­hances ef­fi­ciency as well as pro­vides a smooth fin­ish to the gar­ment.

“The ma­chine as­sists the op­er­a­tor in stitch­ing, thus re­duc­ing in­put time, and de­pend­ing on the fab­ric, has been proved to en­hance pro­duc­tiv­ity by 10-15 per­cent,” claimed ra­heel Khan, Man­ager, in­dus­trial Sewing Ma­chine Divi­sion, Brother in­ter­na­tional (in­dia) pvt Ltd.

The key el­e­ment of the ma­chine is IOT (In­ter­net of Things). As the ma­chine is con­nected to Wifi, it can pro­vide its pro­duc­tion data to con­nected com­put­ers or mo­biles. Shar­ing the ben­e­fits of its fea­tures with Team Per­fect Sourc­ing, Khan said it would help en­ter­prises in track­ing pro­duc­tion out­put as well as iden­ti­fy­ing un­usual de­lays. Some mod­els of Brother ma­chines are pen drive en­abled, which can be used for up­load­ing new data or soft­ware.

The com­pany has patented a few unique fea­tures of Digi­flex Feed, of which nee­dle break­age pre­ven­tion is one - a fre­quent prob­lem that de­lays pro­duc­tion as its detection is quite time con­sum­ing. The other fea­ture is nee­dle pen­e­tra­tion, which pro­tects the fab­ric from the nee­dle punc­tur­ing the weave and weak­en­ing the ma­te­rial. The ma­chines re­ceived a good re­sponse at the ex­hi­bi­tion and the stall was seen crowded with im­por­tant cus­tomers from com­pa­nies like Shahi Ex­ports, Ce­les­tial Knits, Ori­ent Craft, Miniking, Jy­oti Ap­par­els and sev­eral oth­ers dur­ing the ex­hi­bi­tion days.
