Fusing process is one of the important and widely used processes in the garment manufacturing industry. It is used for attaching the interlining. Due to the increasing demand for attractive and unique designs and patterns, the use of fusing increases day by day.
Good quality fusing can’t be imagined without modern fusing machines. They are manufactured, and altered t incorporate new features. Hence, buying decision could be quite confusing when you decide to equip your setup with a new-age machine.
It is always advisable to go for the latest version as it gives better service and lasts long. Make the list of specifications before you discuss with the vendor.
What are different types of fusing?
Though there are several types of fusing, three types are quite common.
Mostly done in the collar and front parts of stylish garments (jackets, tops, etc.); this process uses two types of interlinings. They are joined with the garment fabric in one step.
Since the temperature of these two interlines may be widely different, it is very much important to set the interlining and the fabric well.
Fusing machines that can do the joining process well are preferred by garment manufacturers.
Reverse fusing is a process where you interline the fabric on the resin. The fusing bed is used for spreading the fabric and part that contains resin is directed in the upward direction.
Achieving proper spreading could be difficult here as the area of interlining is relatively small as compared to the total area of fabric.
Therefore, it is critically important to use high-precision machines because the quality of interlining determines its pricing.
As the name suggests, sandwich fusing involves two fabric layers and two interlining. The interlinings are placed between the fabrics and heat and pressure is applied to join them well.
Remember, if the pressure and heat is not applied properly, then the four layers may not get joined properly. It is needless to say that it will impact the quality and the fabric may get rejected by the quality control.
Unsatisfactory performance of fusing machines can impact your profitability and productivity. Hence, you must gather sufficient information about the quality of machine before buying the machine. If you are comfortable with the internet, then gather information about a few state-of-the-art models.
Instead of the brand, prefer performance when you shortlist it for your manufacturing unit.
Using fusing machines in garment or textile industry, we can get unique designs and patterns on shirts, T-shirts, skirts, pants, tops, and various other clothes.
