Synopses & Reviews
In one reference, this book provides up-to-date information on sewing, adhesive bonding and welding methods for joining textiles. Despite the importance of joining processes in product manufacture of all kids, before now, there has never been a single volume dedicated to covering all the major textile joining methods.
Following an overview of fiber and fabric types, natural and synthetic materials and their joining requirements, the book is split into four main parts. Part one deals with the fundamental theory of sewing and sewing machines. This provides an understanding of the mechanics of the seam before and after sewing and the dynamic forces generated on the needle and fabric. Parts two and three introduce adhesive bonding of textiles and welding-processes which overlap with each other, as the same equipment can be used for both purposes. The conclusion discusses the application of textile joining in some typical product areas, including non-iron shirts, car seats, tarpaulins, tents, protective clothing and in fabrics with electronic components. The contributions offer both scientific and practical insight in the use of sewing, bonding and welding techniques for application to all weights and types of textiles materials.

For any fabric structure, the ability to understand how to join fabrics together and retain appropriate properties is critical. Joining Textiles: Principles and Applications, will provide a review of the principles and types of joining. Introductory themes include the types and mechanics of joining. Further chapters discuss factors that affect sewn seam performance and modelling joints in fabric structures. The final group of chapters explores applications and examples of textile joining. Topics range from the joining of smart textiles to issues affecting the joining of automotive fabrics. This will be an important read and reference for textile technologists, fibre scientists, textile engineers and those in academia.
The ability to understand how to join fabrics together and maintain the integrity of the join is critical to fabric structures. After an introductory chapter on the types of fabric and their joining properties, the first part of this important book reviews stitching and sewing technologies and factors affecting seam performance. Chapters discuss the mechanics of stitching, sewing and problems related to sewn textiles, mechanisms of sewing machines and intelligent sewing systems. Following sections discuss adhesive bonding of textiles including principles, methods and applications, and review bonding requirements in coating and laminating of textiles and techniques, such as ultrasonic, laser and radio frequency welding and heat sealing. The final section looks at applications of joining textiles as seams in non-iron shirts and car seat coverings, joining of wearable electronic components and technical textiles, and the joining techniques involved in nonwoven materials.
