EVENTS FLASH
One of the key attributes in lean manufacturing is the continuous flow manufacturing system, which is expected to develop an optimally balanced production line to produce on time, defect-free products with very little waste at minimum possible production cost. Unfortunately, with very little knowledge on the utility of this tool in public domain, continuous flow systems are rarely visible in the needle trade, says Chandrark Karekatti, an industry consultant. In this article CK tries to demystify the methodology for developing continuous flow system for apparel industry.

TEXPROCESS AMERICAS 2014
Confirms a recovering US economy, marking the ‘MADE IN USA’ trend as the key to the American future…

Held for the second time in Atlanta, Georgia and co-located with JEC Americas, the show created a dynamic synergy of technical textiles, nonwovens, textile machinery, composites, sewn products and equipments under one roof. With over 759 exhibitors from 29 countries the event attracted around 9,039 visitors a 45.8% increase from 2012. Dennis Smith, President of Messe Frankfurt North America, was happy at the burgeoning business in the US. The US sewn products industry is improving and the technical textiles industry continues to prosper, is all good news for the technology companies,” said Smith. Adding strength to the belief that the US garment industry is looking up was a 50 per cent growth of the Supply Chain USA pavilion with 34 exhibitors. “The growth of the pavilion is proof that the US textile and apparel industry is making a positive resurgence in the world market,” reasoned Kristy Meade, Group Show Director, Messe Frankfurt, Inc.

Skill development is a very ‘in’ topic for the industry today, especially as most centres face shortage of labour… Understanding the critical need, an integrated skill development scheme was initiated by the Textile Ministry in 2010 under the National Skill Development Policy (NSDP) with the intent to skill 30 lakh persons in 5 years with much fanfare. Sadly, the scheme failed in its objective of 100% placement. According to official data, out of 2,47,812 persons enrolled under the scheme, only 2,33,848 completed their perspective training of which only 35,859 have been placed, while another 1,97,989 people are still to be placed and the rest are not seeking employment at all... A very poor record!

Among the major attractions at the recently concluded Texprocess Americas was Cool Zone. Created and developed by [TC]2, the Cool Zone is an area buyers look to for the latest in leadingedge technologies, products and processes in the sewn products industry. The pavilion featured technologies which are forward thinking but simple to implement (thus ‘cool’) and have the potential to change the apparel manufacturing scenario in the coming years, especially in the US. “The movement for re-shoring can only be supported by high-end technology that cuts down on labour cost, the focus of all the technologies under Cool Zone is to support costeffective manufacturing through innovation,” said Dr. Mike Fralix, President & CEO, [TC]2.
