Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Complex raw materials and manufacturing processes mean the textile industry is particularly dependent on good process control to produce high and consistent product quality. Monitoring and controlling process variables during the textile manufacturing process also minimizes waste, costs and environmental impact. This book provides an important overview of the fundamentals and applications of process control methods.

Part one introduces key issues associated with process control and principles of control systems in textile manufacturing and discusses testing and statistical quality control. This provides the foundation for part two, which goes on to consider control in fiber production and yarn manufacture. Chapters review process and quality control in natural and synthetic textile fiber cultivation, blowroom, carding, drawing and combing and discuss process control in ring and rotor spinning and maintenance of yarn spinning machines. The concluding third section explores process control in the manufacture of knitted, woven, nonwoven textiles and coloration and finishing, with a final exploration of process control in apparel manufacturing.

Synopsis:

Process control is an integral stage of textile manufacture. If used well, it reduces defects, waste, costs and environmental impact. This book discusses the use of process control across the entire process of textile manufacture, ranging from yarn manufacture through to textile applications. Chapters in part one review process control in fiber production and yarn manufacture. The following two sections focus on process control aspects of fabric manufacture such as weaving and nonwoven fabrics and provide a summary of process control methods for particular textile products.
