Washing Machine Operating Procedure
Detailed Study of Buyers Sample
Fabric Requirement-Construction & Wash Requirement & Standards
Prepared Leg mocks (minimum-5) and develop the wash as/std., after achieve the final wash a sample leg mock submit to customer/Asmara .
(Final wash recipe should be attached with leg mock )
Developed the washes in Garment & actual fabric
After rcvd the comments and approval on leg mock gmts need to wash using actual fabric.
If gmts not as/std. need to call out buyer
Fabric Test & Control
Bulk production fabric need to use for gmts samples and FPT & GPT test conduct for all the colors .
Fit & Wash Reference Sample
Based on wash comments wash and submit the sample/Leg mock to buyer/Asmara for approvals
Wash Sample Copy /Counter
Leg mocks/Gmts submitted to buyers for approval keep in Asmara Office (attached wash recipe with unwashed fabric swatch
Blanket Washing Machine Activity
Before bulk gmts production shade blanket need to wash as per approved buyers washing std. , shade report send to all the concern deptt. for bulk gmt production
Size Set washing
Based on PP comments production size set nee to wash (should be wash in all the colors) & report submit to Asmara office
Qc will send garments for testing to Asmara Lab.
Pilot /Shade range wash
Based on size set comments pilot production/shade range need to wash ( minimum 2 lots need to wash for shade range ) .
Bulk wash Approval
Bulk wash Approval
Based on PP/Wash reff. comments review wash range
& send to buyers/Asmara for approval copy of washed counter Keep with counter seal
Bulk Wash Production
After rcvd comments approved shade garments need to seal and send to fcty for production and copy of all approved gmts need to keep in Asmara office
Bulk wash Control
Bulk wash gmts must wash as per lot size & shade wise
all the bulk wash should be meet with color , handfeel,abrasion and the dry process standard and consistent throughout the bulk production.
test protocals forCF, crocking ,DS and PH needs to be verified and should be recorded
Combining or eliminating process steps in textile manufacturing
A reduction in energy, water and raw material usage.
In order to implement this measure, the existing dyeing process, the process conditions and quality requirements should be analysed carefully. It is recommended that industry specific pilot / lab scale trials should be undertaken before field scale implementation, to ensure quality.
Reducing the number of process steps requires relatively modest investments. Savings result from increased production speeds (time gains) a reduction in water, energy and raw materials usage. Payback times are often less than a year.
In synthetic textile processing industries, the operations like weight reduction, scouring and whitening could be combined in one single process step.
Reduced operating time and corresponding energy consumption
Reduced water consumption and consequently reduced wastewater generation
Reduced treatment cost of waste water
Reduced BOD & COD loads
This option is primarily applicable when the fabric needs to be dyed later in a dark shade.
Savings depends on the reduction in the processing time and corresponding savings in energy as well as increased capacity utilisation of the machine, reduction in water consumption and wastewater generation.
