Knitting Technology Book Review:

The third edition of Knitting Technology, widely recognised as the definitive text on the subject, has been thoroughly revised and updated to include all the latest developments. Beginning with the fundamental principles and moving on to more advanced aspects, it combines in a single comprehensive volume the basics of warp and weft knitting, fabric structures and products, the different types of machines, principles of production and terminology to provide an invaluable reference for textiles students, textile engineers and technicians involved in knitted garment design and manufacture. Fundamental rules and principles are emphasised throughout. Aspects covered include flat, circular, full fashioned, hosiery, raschel, tricot and crochet production. Development of the various types of knitting machines, their actions and mechanisms as well as the construction, properties and end uses of the products which they manufacture are also included. The book is indexed and referenced in detail and includes numerous labelled diagrams and photographs. Terminology is defined either according to The Textile Institute's terms and definitions or current usage in the industry and is supplemented where necessary by American or continental terminology. Although SI units and the tex yarn count system are explained and used in the text, other systems have also been employed wherever it has been considered that their usage is still important. A number of worked calculations are included to clarify the examples given. Knitting technology is the ideal textbook for a range of textile courses from technician to degree level and The Textile Institute's examinations as well as being an essential companion to all those involved in the knitting industry.

The CEO Handbook Innovations in Machinery Book Review:

The CEO Handbook to cover the innovations and new developments in the textile machinery. This feature shall be a voice through which the machinery companies can narrate their story of innovations. They can present their innovative machineries and new development to the textile leaders through the medium of this print feature that will be circulated to CEOs and top decision makers of textile companies within India and South East Asia. This feature will not only render visibility to their innovations but also act as a positive catalyst of success. In today’s world, textile manufacturers need to keep upgrading their machineries to stay competitive. In fact, it is the latest machinery that drives the growth of the textile and garment industry by providing efficiency and optimisation in production. To meet customers’ demands and needs, global leaders in textile machineries strive hard to come up with innovative and more efficient textile machines. The newer machines are intelligently designed to give maximum quality and optimum economic efficiency with outstanding features. The trends in shipments of machineries give an indication of which machineries are in demand. Shipments of flat-knitting machines rose by 52 per cent, while deliveries of shuttle-less looms increased by 14 per cent year-on-year in 2015, according to the 38th annual International Textile Machinery Shipment Statistics (ITMSS) released by the International Textile Manufacturers Federation (ITMF). On the other hand, shipments in some textile machinery segments experienced declines in 2015. Deliveries of new short-staple spindles fell by nearly 8 per cent from 2014 to 2015. Shipped long-staple spindles and open-end rotors decreased by 61 per cent and 6 per cent, respectively. The number of shipped draw texturing spindles fell by 26 per cent and shipments for new circular knitting machines by 6 per cent year-on-year. However, 2015 was a very good year for the segment of electronic flat knitting machines as global shipments grew by 52 per cent to 70,100 machines, the highest level since 2011. Not surprisingly, Asia received the highest share of shipments (93 per cent). China remained the world’s largest investor for flat knitting machines in 2015. Thereby, Chinese investments increased from 19,000 units to 35,500 units. But, due to rising labour and production costs, textile and garment manufacturing is shifting, to a certain extent, from China. As a result, new plants are being set up in other countries, especially in Asia and Africa. This is where the new machineries would be in demand. ‘Innovations in Machinery — The CEO Handbook’ tries to explain the advantages of various machines that will help technocrats in choosing the right machine. This volume is a collection of top most companies that inform readers about the latest innovations in textile machinery. It presents some of the leading machinery entrepreneurs from different textile verticals who have contributed to the textile industry with their innovations. New technologies and techniques in textile production are sure to draw the attention of top textile technocrats. Going beyond, this volume attempts to give a glimpse of the future of textile machinery and production. This handbook will reach the top technocrats in the textile and apparel organisations throughout the world. It will serve as an extensive source of information regarding upcoming technologies and innovations in the global textile machinery industry.

Pocket Handbook for Assistant Buyers A Z of Textile Terms Book Review:

Teresa Dancer realised whilst teaching students at the London College of Fashion that they could benefit from a concise handbook that would better prepare them for a career in the industry. Whether it was defining cup seaming, knowing the difference between weft and warp yarns, understanding where indigo dyes come from, or grasping what a micron count is, she found that students were lacking in knowledge which would help them progress in the industry. With detailed explanations for each term and photos to make learning easier, it’s more than a fashion dictionary; it’s an essential tool for anyone seeking to enter the world of fashion, particularly buyers and those involved in product development. The handbook helps students and aspiring buyers break into this competitive world and it provides the necessary confidence to work with suppliers and manufacturers on a variety of different products and textile bases.

Handbook of Sustainable Textile Production Book Review:

Textile products are produced, distributed, sold and used worldwide. A quantitative assessment of sustainability in the textile manufacturing chain is therefore extremely important. The Handbook of sustainable textile production is a compilation of technical, economical, and environmental data from the various processes in this chain. This authoritative reference work provides a detailed study of the sustainable development of textiles. The book opens with an introduction to the topic. Chapters define the principles of sustainability and its use in legislation and industry before going on to investigate the impact of textiles throughout the supply chain, starting with the raw fibre through to fabric production, consumption and disposal. Textile process technology and methods for specifying quality and functions in textile products in order to reduce textile waste and improve sustainability are also examined. A series of Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) carried out in the European textile industry are investigated. These studies comprise a range of processes from cotton growing, spinning and weaving to the recycling of textiles. The book concludes with a discussion on sustainable textiles from a product development and marketing perspective. With an internationally recognised expert author, the Handbook of sustainable textile production is a valuable reference tool for academics and students as well as for companies across the textile supply chain concerned with developing a sustainable environment, from fibre manufactures and designers to regulatory bodies. A detailed, quantitative assessment of the sustainable development of textiles Provides a useful compilation of technical, economical, and environmental data from various processes in the textile manufacturing chain Chapters define the principles of sustainability and its use in legislation and industry, textile process technology, the impact of textiles throughout the supply chain, raw fibre through to fabric production, consumption and disposal
