Technology is changing swiftly. Once we used manual processes in Apparel Manufacturing which now have been replaced with modern technologies. New generation now uses customized software for Fashion Design, Virtual Modeling, Garments CAD for Pattern and Marker Development and Robotic Spreader and Cutter.
NITER Apparel Manufacturing Lab has been updated with latest technologies. It consists of the following two labs:
Garments washing laboratory:
Garments washing laboratory course designed for final year students of B.sc in textile engineering in such a away to get knowledge about various types of washing of garments which is help to build up practical knowledge perfectly. In our garments washing laboratory different types of washing process will perform such as Normal Wash, Acid Wash, Enzyme Wash, Super White Wash Stone Wash As well as Garments dyeing (Knit and Woven).Moreover, Different types of dry washing effect will perform here like as 3D Crinkle Effect, Regular and irregular destroy effect, Whiskering effect, Fading effect, Hand scrapping, Tagging etc. All Experiments are related in washing industry. Students could learn factory oriented work by this laboratory.
Textile testing and Quality control:
Textile testing and Quality control Laboratory course designed for 2nd and 3rd Year students of B.Sc in Textile engineering in such a way to get knowledge about different types of Textile testing and how to maintain quality of textile product (Fiber, Yarn, Fabric and Garments). In our Laboratory several types of testing will be done like as Quality evaluation of fiber and yarn ( Strength of fiber and yarn, Moisture regain and content, Fineness, Determination of TPI, Measure length of fiber, Count determination etc). Quality evaluation of Fabric also available here for this purpose different types of testing will be performed such as Determination Color fastness to washing, rubbing, light, perspiration ,Assessment of quality of fabric, Measurement of fabric stiffness and its relation to handle, Crease recovery, Wrinkle recovery, Drape. Methods of measurements for tensile, tearing, bursting tests, thickness of fabric, air permeability, pilling of fabric etc. Above all testing are highly essential to assurance quality of textile product as well as these are extremely related in textile world.
