CUTTING Learn Apparel Merchandising Learn Fashion Designing.

Cutting section is the most important section of Garments. From my this post you will learn that, how the cutting (Knit) section works.

Cutting sections perform the following tasks.

  • Fabric Inspection.
  • Fabric Relaxation.
  • Different testsĀ i.e. GSM test, Shrinkage test, Twisting, Fastness test, Fabric dia, Shed, Consumption etc. for quality assurance.
  • Marker Making.
  • Fabric Spreading.
  • Cutting.
  • Sorting and Bundling.
  • Cut Panel Checking.
  • Input to the sewing.

Working Flow of Cutting Section

The Cutting section is running according to the following flow chart.

Finished fabric from dyeing & finishing

  • Fabric inspection
  • Relaxation
  • Test of GSM, dia, shed, shrinkage, twisting, fastness etc.
  • Test cutting
  • Approval
  • Marker making
  • Fabric spreading
  • Cutting
  • Sorting (Sticker, Numbering)
  • Bundling
  • Cut panel checking
  • Input section
  • Send to sewing section

All these tasks can be accomplished by classifying them into following main processes.

Processes of cutting Section

  1. Preparatory processes.
  2. Marker Making.
  3. Fabric Spreading.
  4. Cutting.
  5. Sorting and Bundling.
  6. Cut Panel Checking.
  7. Inputting.

After receiving the fabric from the dyeing and finishing section, there are some processes to prepare the fabric for bulk production. All these processes combined can be called preparatory processes.

When the fabric is ready for bulk production, then marker is made to reduce the fabric wastage during cutting. According to the marker plan, the fabric is being spreaded on cutting table and the marker is being replaced onto the fabric layer.

Then cutting process is performed. After cutting sorting and bundling is done. Then the cut fabrics are taken to the cut panel check area for checking. After checking the fabric is sent to the input section for inputting in sewing section.
