Garment manufacturing involves several processes built on different task components across the assembly line. Before it is brought into the deigning section and printed, stitched, creased, and cleaned to get its final form, the profile/silhouette is established. And this is the part of the clothes production that largely decides the quality and consistency of the final product.
This part of the process is known as cloth cutting. This is important to have the right shape and outline to make sure that the fabric doesn’t fall short of the required measurements and at the same time don’t let too much wastage. It involves precisely cutting the garment panels and bringing them together to create body-wearable designs as per the proposed outlines. This is where the shape and fit of the garment are decided which forms the base of the final product design.
The process of cutting followed at Cheer Sagar Exports
We follow a clinical process that is mated with standardized practices of cutting and sorting. Our skilled production workers are trained to produce precise work, referring to our high-end quality protocols. With this, we are able to achieve the best of results with cutting to help us produce the final product with high accuracy and consistency for orders of any type and size.
The process we follow at Cheer Sagar Exports for cutting is arrayed across well-defined and well-applied task modules:
Here the major operations that are taken care of by specialized teams in a close-coordinated process can be counted as marker planning, fabric spreading and fixing, cutting, and assembly process preparations. These processes are appointed to carry out the job of cutting to achieve the highest compliance score with the factory procedures so that the best overall conjunction can be established with other processes. This involves monitoring and handling by a production supervisor who takes the responsibility of achieving the best quality in the least time and cost. Here, most of our product process around garment cutting follows automated practices. The marking and positioning are done with the help of computer programs and connected tools.
Preparations we do for cut work
There are different preparatory activities and practices that we take up to ensure the process is all served with the right course of action that offers smooth and upright results with cloth cutting.
Bundling: Being a mass clothing manufacturing house, we are engaged in volume production at our service facility. This requires us to keep the process going in a streamlined and controlled manner. Therefore, we go by methodical bundling of the material that needs to be produced. This helps us to manage the orders in manageable batches which makes the whole process of cutting more organized and smoother. And this prevents us from committing possible errors while setting up a new program or committing to an alternate process.
Shade separation: Fabric rolls are meant to carry slight shade variations. And this is something you get to see mostly everywhere no matter where you source the material from. To keep it all consistent with carrying out and for results, we assign shade tickets with a ply number and keep them separated from each other.
Indicating the face-side fabric: You may notice a difference in the material texture and finish amongst the face and the back sides of some cloth fabrics. While putting it through with the process of production, we put visible indication for the front of the fabric, so there’s no chance of goof-up and it is applied and used correctly in the process.
Work ticketing: In the bundling and follow-through processes, you need to assign tasks and spot tickets to identify, appoint, and assign the right job roles to process the operations flawlessly. Here, to segregate and classify them across the process, we follow a standardized plan of coding for every unit and batch that passes through the order of assembly. These tickets keep the whole process of cutting and sorting a lot organized, ordered, and optimized.
Order based customization
The machinery set up for material cutting is changed as per requirement and the processes are set to match each order’s specifications. This gets us to set pattern pieces, place markers, and do the grouping and ordering to best serve the requirements. Our tech-efficient production team uses special nesting software to do the right positioning and configuration to set the layout to reveal the best arrangement customized to suit the fitting, pattern, design, and size requirements of the order.
This allows us to carry out fabric cutting with great precision and keep it inspected for quality to get accurate results. This is well taken care of the cost-effectiveness by minimizing fabric wastage, maximizing layers, and optimally utilizing time and labor. While setting up the production practices and program formats to best align with the quality and budget preferences of the client businesses.
Objectives of cutting we follow
We follow a few factors and practices that form our objective behind carrying the operations. These are the practicing traits and value objectives that drive our process of cutting and sorting:
Accuracy of cut: The pieces of garments are precisely cut to be in the exact shape it is depicted to be in the proposed design. This involves exact measurements and the right proportions to get the exact clothing parts based on decimal-accurate markings over the layout.
Clean edges: While we process the material, we make sure there are no fraying or snagging on the edges. For this, we only use the appropriate tools that are in their best conditions. This also involves following cautious and watchful practices while carrying off the process. Also, while doing this we make sure we use serrated edged knives, sharpened blades, anti-fusion papers, and spray lubricants, to ensure the finest of finishing at edges.
Support of the lay: Taking up the process, we make sure there are no gaps and gathers in the layer of cloths so that the trimming takes place with great accuracy. To do this right we keep the fabric supported and intact to retain its exact position while being cut.
Cutting consistency: The height of the lay may vary based on the method of cutting. To command consistency and uniformity we precisely manage the height and elevation of the cutting beam without affecting the standard techniques that we take up in the process.
