What are the "3 points" to improve productivity at the factory?

2 major issues : Machine operation ratio which directly affects sales and,
product quality which influences factory reputation.
We would like to introduce 3 points which help to solve these issues.

There are various factors which negatively impact to operation ratio in a sewing factory, but the biggest one is needle breakage. Of course we have to replace needles,and another cause of dropping operation ratio is the need to check for broken needles in products.

When it comes to making various types of items, sewing machines must be adjusted frequently and the operator has to have high levels of sewing skills. Without this, the lines keeps producing defective product. This leads to a loss of relationship with customer.

The operator should not be a factor in improved quality.

70% 30% Sewing machine operation ratio Non-sewing-related work

It is said that the actual time spent at sewing machine is 30% of the total working hours. The rest of the time is spent on processes which do not need sewing machine such as handling and setting material, making adjustments, and removing puckering. These operations are a barrier to improved productivity.

Preventing needle breakage leads to better operating ratio.Preventing needle breakage leads to better operating ratio.

DigiFlex Feed technology feeds the cloth at the appropriate time to prevent needles bending or breaking. Even with thick materials which would normally break the needles, the cloth is not fed through at the moment the needle is inserted, thus there is less stress placed on the needle. The result is less needle breakage and an improvement in operation ratio.

>Every operator can achieve high quality with the suitable feed motion.Every operator can achieve high quality with the suitable feed motion.

DigiFlex Feed has 4 different "feed motions" to choose from, which each provides different thread tightening, depending on the material. This will allow every operator to produce stable quality even with processes which once relied on a highly experienced operator.

Procedures which until now were done by hand are now handled digitally by DigiFlex Feed machines. The simple button operations can be carried out by even a new employee. This helps us to minimize machine stop times and leads to an improvement in line productivity.
