Optimizing sewing speed for better seam quality of denim fabric
Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava
Sewing process is the most common task in any garments manufacturing company. The worker usually gets paid according to number of items made, which causes the demand to run the sewing machines at highest speeds. In this research it is determined if this high speed effect the seam strength and what should be optimum speed considering denim fabric with commonly used polyester core spun thread. The results shows that the seam strength is significantly decreases with increase of sewing speed and the acceptable quality with better production can be achieved if the sewing speed is 40 Hz.
