Textile is the ancient branch of engineering. Now textile engineering study is becoming more demand-able then before. Because textiles have not only used for wearing but also hugely used in different sectors like as technical textile. Many research works are being done on textile. But doing research anything it needs huge information. Books have not alternative of information. But price of every book is out of range such like us third world country’s people. For fulfillment the demand of information I will give a list of textile books. All books I have collected from my friends and fans who are studying in different famous universities around the world. I think these books will be helpful for students, researchers, businessmen, entrepreneurs as well as all people who are interested to know about textile. 

Warning: If you want to get any book from the following list then you must have to publish Article or Assignment or Project work in this blog for promoting purpose. Without these please don't send email.

Methods of Drawing and Duplicating a Marker

Methods of Drawing and Duplicating a Marker
Noor Ahmed Raaz
B. Sc in Textile Engineer (CU)
Specialized in Apparel Manufacturing
Merchandiser, A.M.C.S Textile Ltd (AEPZ)

What is Marker:
Marker is a long thin paper which contains all necessary pattern pieces for different sizes for a particular style of garments.

Manual Method:
Multiple copies of the marker paper are usually needed. These copies can either be made when marker plan is first drawn or the master marker can be reproduced as needed by a variety of methods:
Marker making by manual method
Marker making by manual method
Drawing Marker on Paper
Carbon duplicating: In this method, 6 to 8 markers can be duplicated at a time. Both sided carbon papers are placed in between each two marker papers. When marking of patterns is done on the upper page by pens or pencils, duplicate markers are thus achieved.

  • Cost and time effective in case of lower number of copies like 3 to 4.
  • Labor intensive
  • Time consuming as it takes long time.
Spirit duplicating: 
In spirit duplicating m/c the master marker is drawn on paper with a layer of special hectograph paper underneath it. This paper transfers a blue line onto the back of the master marker as it is drawn. The master is then used to make one copy at a time in spirit duplicating m/c. It is a messy process but mane copies can be produced.

  • A large number of copies can be developed so it is cost effective.
  • Overlapping, folding or shrinkage of marker papers may cause faulty copies.
  • In case of higher width of marker, it would be difficult to duplicate.
Perforated marker: 
The patterns are first placed on to the marker paper, and then marking is done with pencils. Small perforation is done along the drawn lines of the marker papers. This perforated marker is then placed onto the fabric lay and powder of French chalk is spread over the marker. French chalk slates on the fabric like bubbles outside the drawn line and thus patterns appear.

  • This type of marker may be used several times.
  • o Time consuming;
  • o Not cost effective i.e. it incurs huge cost.
Using Photograph or light sensitive paper
A special kind of light sensitive paper is used in this technique. When patterns are kept on it and exposed to light, the uncovered areas of the paper change in color by reaction with light to different shades and patterns are marked.

  • Quick process, copies can be duplicated with more precision;
  • Huge number of copies can de duplicated at a time.
Marking directly on fabric
Drawing by chalk or pencil: Fabric is first spread over the cutting table and then the pattern pieces are set up directly onto the fabric. Marking is done by a chalk or pencil. This technique usually requires more time and very rarely used in the RMG sector. In tailoring purposes it is very common.

  • The process is convenient for tailoring process.
  • Time consuming process;
  • Well experienced planner is required.
Paint spraying: 
Te patterns are kept onto the fabric and then paint is sprayed over the patterns. The areas covered by the patterns are not sprayed and thus patterns appear with original color of the fabric.

  • Convenient for check fabric.
  • o Spray machine should be cleaned regularly which is expensive.
  • o Accurate lines may not be developed as the shape of pattern pieces becomes distorted.
  • o Not applicable for high absorbent fabric due to color migration.
Computerized Method
When the marker planning is finished, the marker is saved in computer memory and at any time it can be displayed on the computer screen. This marker can be printed out when desired.

  • High accuracy in duplicating copies.
  • High initial cost
Photographic Method
A light sensitive paper is used where pattern pieces are placed according to marker plan. Then it is exposed to ultraviolet ray and marker is made visible with ammonia vapor. Patterns are also marked on marker by perforation and the duplicating is also done with the same process.

  • More accuracy in marker making and duplicating.
  • Better quality
  • Low labor cost
  • Less time required.
  • High initial cost.

Lady’s Jeans:
Normally ladies jeans worn by slim guys which were originally marketed to girls. Such jeans are slim fit, low rise, have few decorations, and reach closely between the legs. Often: jeans are black, have a 5th pocket, and, for crotch comfort, are flexible (e.g. from 5% Lycra).

Garment Pressing:
Pressing is a finishing process done by a cloth to heat and pressure with or without steam to remove creases and to impart a flat appearance to the cloth or garments. It is also known as ironing. There are various machines are used in garment industries. Among them Stem iron and Stem pressing machine remarkable.

Necessary equipment of garment pressing:

In garments industries the following pressing machines are used:

Steam Iron
In house hold operations, normal electric irons are extensively used. But today steam irons are used for industrial purposes. In stem irons, the iron is heated up by steam which is supplied from a central boiler or a mini boiler. The supply of steam is regulated by a hand regulated button. This steam is supplied to iron from the boiler through a pipe and is let to come out through perforations under the iron. These irons are triangular in shape and their weight varies from 1 to 15 kg. For pressing this iron, ironing bed or table is required. With the bed there should be a provision of air suction system. After ironing, a foot regulated switch is pressed for air suctioning which removes the moisture and heat as well from the pressed garment quickly. To operate steam iron, skilled and experienced operator is required because the proper regulation of air and steam supply depends on operator’s skillness.
Steam Iron
Steam Pressing Machine
A steam pressing machine consists of a static BUCK and HEAD of complementary shape, which closes onto it. Thus sandwiching the garment to be pressed. It has a frame carrying the BUCK which is generally round in shape. Besides this, it has linkages to close the HEAD, pipe system to supply steam to HEAD and BUCK, a vacuum system to provide suction through the BUCK, a table around the BUCK to aid the handling of the garments and foot control for HEAD closure and vacuum. The cycle of operation of this pressing machine for pressing a garment (like skirt, shirt, trouser, etc) is as follows:
Steam pressing machine
In the case of manually operated press, the duration of steam supply, pressure and vacuum are left to the skill and judgment of the operator.
