Introduction:

Fused edge in cutting fabric is one of the major faults of cutting section in readymade garments sector. It hampers the whole processes of apparel manufacturing. So, it is too much needy to remove these kinds of faults from the cutting section for achieving better output from a garment export order. There are some ways to remove fused edge from fabric cutting which has explained in this article clearly.

Fused Edge in Fabric:

During fabric cutting, when the parts of fabric are cut from the fabric lay, there is generated friction between the fabric and cutting knife. As a result heat is generated in the cutting knife. Sometimes it’s seen that, due to excessive heat generation by friction may cause burn of the edge of cutting fabric. It affects deeply in case of thermo plastic fiber.

Removal Ways of Fused Edge Produced in Fabric Cutting:

There are some key points, which helps to remove fused edge during fabric cutting are mentioned in the following:

  1. Reducing ply height,
  2. Sharpening the knife properly,
  3. Using silicon lubricating agents during cutting,
  4. Using anti fusing paper,
  5. Reducing the speed of cutting knife.

All the above key points have explained in the below:

1. Reducing ply height:

During fabric spreading, one thing should be carefully handled that number of plies not more than three hundreds. If it exceeds the definite number then there is too much possibility of producing fused edge in the fabric. So, by reducing ply height, we should easily remove the possibility of producing fused edge in the cutting fabric.

2. Sharpening the knife properly:

It is one of the important points during cutting the fabric. Cutting knife must be sharpening properly, otherwise it will create problem during fabric cutting and produced fused edge in the fabric.

3. Using silicon lubricating agents during cutting:

Using silicon lubricating agent in the cutting knife helps to remove fused edge in the cutting fabric.

4. Using anti fusing paper:

It is the other way which reduces the possibility of producing fused edge in the fabric. So, during fabric cutting, anti fusing paper should be used for getting fault free cutting fabrics.

5. Reducing the speed of cutting knife:

Sometimes it is seen that fabrics are cut by using cutting knife at fast speed. But it creates the possibility of producing fused edge in the cutting fabrics. So, cutting knife speed must be reduced to get fault free cutting fabrics.
