6 Guidelines for Fabric Inspection

 

Common Guidelines for Inspecting Fabric  

Some of the inspection guidelines are, 

* The fabric store should always inspect the fabric as soon as it reaches the facility.

* Always store the fabric in a clean, moisture free environment.

* As soon as the fabric arrives, a swatch, (of dimensions as specified by the laboratory), should be submitted to a laboratory, to check the fabric for adherence to fabric performance standards that are required.

 

Some of the followed Inspection Standards are,

1. The Four Point System

2. Fabric Meterage to Inspect

3. Roll Size

4. Selection of Rolls

5. Acceptance Point Count

6. Defect Classification

 

1. The Four-Point System

The 4-point system is widely accepted in the textile and garment trade because it is easy to understand and implement.

This system also lays down standards that are proven and acceptable in the garment trade and it is recommended to use the same system while checking fabric. Read more.......

 

2. Fabric Meterage to Inspect

* At least 10% of the meterage is to be inspected.

* For a shipment or order of up to 200 meters, it is recommended that inspection should be carried out for 100% piece goods.

* For a shipment between 200 - 2000 meters, the inspection should be done for at least 200 meters or 10%, whichever is greater.

 

3. Roll Size

For better utilization of fabric, it is suggested that there should not be more than 10-15% of “short rolls” that is rolls of 20 meters and less in an order.

 

4. Selection of Rolls

At least one roll of each color that is even if it exceeds 10% of the total meterage, should be selected. In case, more than one roll per color is to be checked, then select the number in proportion to the number of total rolls per color received.

 

5. Acceptance Point Count

This method of acceptance uses a projection of total defects based on the number of defects found in an inspection of a sample.

 

6. Classification of Defects:

  1. Critical Defects

  2. Major Defects

  3. Minor Defects
