Cutting out at the lay involves creating a splice. In such cases, the plotter will notactually draw the pattern outlines, but will write only the size codesin the correct positions on the marker and mark a corner referencepoint which gives an manufacure position to the knife.

Motorpower drives the reciprocating blade, and operator power drives theknife through the lay.

Remember me on this computer. The operators work back from the end, aligning the edges and ensuring that there is no tension and that there are no wrinkles. The ease with which accuracy is achieved depends on themethod of cutting employed and in some cases on laham marker plan-ning and marker making, as ckothing earlier. But there are other ways that distortion can be introduced to a lay,and these need to be controlled carefully.

The purpose of this chapter is to.

This will occur, forexample, if the lay is moved up or down a ramp or over a ridge in thetable. Thegarment parts are then cut out with hand shears, electric cutters ordies.

A garment made from parts cut fromthese different pieces would be likely to show a shaded effect betweenits different panels. The drive trolleyof the support arm moves automatically along rails on the side of thetable supports as the straight knife is moved during the cuttingprocess, allowing the best support to the knife at any part of the lay.

Depending on the method of cutting that is used,there is not always a need for the pattern shapes and positions to bephysically drawn on a paper marker, but whether the marker is drawnout or not, a marker plan must be made in which the pattern piecesare closely interlocked to achieve the minimum usage of fabric. The machine uses alcohol to wet a plain white paper which is then passed with the master between two rollers, transferring the lines onto the copy.

In addition, it prevents snagging of the fabric on thetable surface which often becomes roughened with czrr. Displaying Editions 1 – 4 out of 4.

lathm When pattern pieces are laid down thepiece of cloth, as is commonest with large pattern pieces, the grainline should lie parallel to the line of the warp in a woven fabric or thewales in a knitted fabric. Alternative methods of joining materials.

Garment accessories and enhancements. Most designers do not have a strong element of technology in their education, courses often having a greater emphasis on creativity than on technological content.

It is not suitable for spreading by machine, but its lesser width allows it to be spread manually by one spreader on narrower tables. In this case the plies would be separated at suitable intervals of perhaps 10 or 12 plies with interleaving paper. Request permission to reuse content from this site.

This is not discussed in detail here. Domestic manufacturing continues toexist, normally supplying niche markets using specialist skills. The type of table surface is critical for the spreading and cutting operations. This is likely to be less economical than manufactue markers. Methods of cutting Numerous attempts have been made over the years to develop methods of cutting cloth other than by means of some kind of metal blade. A typical straight knife is illustrated in Fig.

Plaiting presenting the fabric in widthwise foldsrather than in a roll helps to avoid tension in the fabric.

In many cases they allow a standard of cutting to be achievedwith a straight knife that is normally only achievable by transportingroughly cut work to a band knife. Cutting a b c d Figure 2. All have found the challenge of working with limp, deformable materials to be enormous. Thus a spreadercan be preset to a selected number of plies, emitting an audible signalwhen it has reached the selected number or has come to the end of apiece of fabric.
