How to overcome the rise of raw materials in Textile Industry
“As the prices of raw materials keep rising, textile companies need to improve the precision of production processes to reduce the waste of raw materials,” says Gao Yong, vice president of the China Textile Industry Association (CTIA).
According to Yong, after the global financial crisis, the rise of textile raw material prices has outpaced the rise of oil prices due to a supply shortfall, and this trend may continue. As a result, reducing raw material consumption has become critical and precision production much more important.
Yong adds, “Textile producers are also seeking to increase the automation of production machines to reduce labor costs and avoid the threat of a labor force shortage. Automated textile machine makers will benefit from this trend.” Salaries in textile manufacturing increased approximately 15% annually between 2004 and 2009.
What is the added value of using Machine Vision in Textile Industry
Applying machine Vision technology in textile industry enable inspecting:
- The orientation of fiber, diameter of fiber, weight uniformity of cotton web, maturity of cotton fiber, scale structure of wool and cashmere fiber, cross-section of high-molecular fiber, fiber curvature, monofilament quantities of viscose fiber, and fiber profile degree.
- Yarn count, yarn linear density, yarn regularity, and blended yarn regularity.
- Cockle effects of silk, reflective effects of silk, fabric defects, and dyeing and printing mistakes.
That’s why DevisionX builds its solutions based on Machine Vision and Deep Learning technologies in textile industry to automate some processes such as defects detection [ in shape, color, location, and size, …etc] and classification based on the standard applied by the client or the industry.
Deep Learning Technology in DevisionX inspection systems enables the system to learn by itself and proceed based on the datasets. As much as the datasets increase, the accuracy increases, that’s why DevisionX Solutions in Textile industry can work on all types of fabric [Patterned, lace, plain, ..etc]. DevisionX systems can integrate with any phase of [Knitting, Weaving, dying, preparing] production phase or in the quality department and support with required data for making a specific action.
