Clothing production process

Clothing production process.

The clothing production process is an interesting one, ranging from pre-production to the final collection. Clothing production process.

1.Pre-production operations

The first step of operation does not start with material selection or cutting.

 After receiving the original sample, a detailed plan must be made. First, it is necessary to analyze the sample and the attention points in the order operation, confirm the size. And sort out the use of main and auxiliary materials of each color.

The specification sheet, which can be divided into model specification sheet, batch sample specification sheet. And pre-production specification sheet. Among them, the style sample specification table is mainly used for designers to see the style effect. And calculate the material used for production. In general, the same kind of fabric is used for proofing, and accessories are allowed to substitute. For the production factory, this specification sheet is only for quotation. In order to obtain a real order. When using this form, you should pay attention to the content and specifications of each item. Because these contents and specifications are often directly related to the cost. Methods and suggestions that are conducive to reducing costs without changing. The basic requirements of the original clothing can be adopted. All changes in this specification sheet must be annotated. So that they can correspond to each other when the next work is carried out.

In addition, the batch sample specification sheet is mainly used for making batch samples.

Before making batch samples, operate item by item according to the provided style samples. And the specific requirements in the sample specification table, check the fabric structure. And structure specifications of the samples, measure all the dimensions. And make sure that the dimensions of each point are within the allowable error range. Give the style and specification sheet to the relevant technical personnel. And review all doubtful and difficult points, so as to fully understand the situation of the sample clothing. In principle, official main and auxiliary materials are used for batch samples.

In addition, the pre-production form is mainly a form provided by the customer after. The batch sample is approved by the customer. Only this product specification sheet is for factory mass production. If the previous specification sheet is used instead. Mistakes will often occur, because after proofing, customers often change the original size. And the change of this size is often inconspicuous. Before mass production and operation, it is necessary to make a sample again. It is called a pre-production sample. In the production of this sample, all the main materials. And auxiliary materials must be used in the future production. After the customer fully approves, a large number of cuts can be made.

2.Specific operations of garment production:

The basic technological process of garment production includes eight processes including incoming:

 inspection of fabric materials,layout, cutting, sewing, keyhole buttonhole buttoning, ironing, garment inspection. And packaging and warehousing.

Material inspection and testing: including inspection of color difference, inspection of dimension skew and defects.

After the fabric enters the factory, it must be counted and inspected for appearance and internal quality. Only those that meet the production requirements can be put into production. Controlling the quality of fabrics is an important part of controlling the quality of finished products. Through the inspection and measurement of incoming fabrics. The authenticity rate of clothing can be effectively improved. Material inspection includes shrinkage rate of elastic band. Adhesion fastness of fusible interlining, smoothness of zipper and so on. Materials that cannot meet the requirements will not be put into production.

The next step is technical preparation: technical preparation is an important means to ensure the smooth progress of mass production. And the final product meets customer requirements. Before mass production, technical personnel must first do the technical preparations before production. Technical preparation includes three contents: craft list, model making and sample clothing making. The craft sheet is a guiding document in garment processing. It puts forward detailed requirements for garment specifications, sewing, ironing, packaging, etc.. And also clarifies details such as the matching of garment accessories and seam density. All procedures in garment processing should be carried out in strict accordance with the requirements of the craft sheet.

Prototype production requires accurate dimensions and complete specifications. The contour lines of relevant parts are accurately matched.

The model number, location, specification and quality requirements should be marked on the model. And the model composite seal should be affixed at the relevant splicing. After completing the formulation of craft sheets and samples. Small batches of sample garments can be produced. And non-conforming points can be corrected in time according to the requirements of customers and crafts. And difficult problems in crafts can be tackled so that mass flow operations can proceed smoothly. After the sample garment is confirmed and signed by the customer. It becomes one of the important inspection basis.

1) Nesting: 1:10 pre-shrinking and laying is carried out first. And the laying diagram is drawn according to the template. “Complete, reasonable and economical” is the basic principle of laying.

 2)Cutting: Each auxiliary material and cutting is called a bed or a knife. The cutting bed can improve production efficiency. Save raw materials relatively, and ensure quality better than manual cutting. Generally, the fewer layers of cutting, the higher the cost. (The picture on the previous page is the cutting list in the factory)

 3)Sewing: Stitches and seams are the basic elements of sewing. Clothing sewing can be divided into machine sewing. And hand sewing according to styles and craft styles. Flow operation is implemented in the sewing process. There is a process analysis chart when sewing.

3.Post-production process:


 The buttonhole and buttonhole in the clothing are usually processed by machine. And the buttonhole is divided into two types according to its shape: flat and eye holes. Commonly known as sleeping holes and dove-eye holes. Sleep hole is mostly used in shirts, skirts, pants and other thin clothing products. Dove-eye holes are mostly used on coats of thick fabrics such as jackets and suits.

Garment ironing:

The function of ironing is to use spray ironing to pre-shrink the clothes. Make the clothes look beautiful, change the elasticity of the material. And carry out shaping. When ironing, put the liner inside the garment to keep the product in a certain shape and size. The size of the liner is slightly larger than that required. By the garment to prevent the size from being too small after shrinkage. The ironing temperature is generally controlled at 180°C It is relatively safe between ~200°C. And it is not easy to scald and burn.

Clothing inspection:

Clothing is about to face consumers directly. So the inspection before leaving the factory plays a decisive role. Because there are many factors that affect the quality of garment inspection. Garment inspection is an important link in the management chain of garment enterprises. The correct inspection concept is very important. Quality inspection refers to measuring, inspecting, testing. And measuring one or more characteristics of products or services by a certain method. And comparing these measurement results with evaluation standards to determine the quality of each product or service. The pros and cons of a product or service. As well as whether the batch of products or services are qualified or not. Compared with the required quality, the properties of the produced products will be uneven. And there will be a certain gap. For this gap, inspectors need to judge whether the product is qualified or not according to certain standards. The standard usually implemented is: the gap within the allowable range is judged as a qualified product. The gap beyond the allowable range is judged as a non-conforming product.

Finished product packaging:

The packaging of clothing can be divided into two types: hanging and boxing. Boxing is generally divided into inner packaging and outer packaging. Inner packing refers to putting one or several pieces of clothing into a plastic bag. The style number and size of the clothing should be consistent with those indicated on the plastic bag. For example, twisted clothing should be packaged in the form of twisted rolls to maintain its style. The outer packaging is generally packed in cartons. And the size and color are matched according to customer requirements or instructions in the craft sheet. There are generally four types of packaging:

mixed-color mixed-code, single-color single-code, single-color mixed-code, and mixed-color single-code.

The above three parts constitute the main production process of the garment factory. Good products leave the factory not only relying on the support of hardware equipment. But also relying on a good management system. So that all processes can be carried out in an orderly manner. And the economic benefits of the enterprise can be improved.
