MySize unveils new measurement technology
My Size, Inc. has developed a unique measurement technology based on sophisticated algorithms and cutting edge technology with broad applications including the apparel, e-commerce, DIY, shipping and parcel delivery industries. This proprietary, patented technology is driven by several algorithms which are able to calculate and record measurements in a variety of novel ways.
My Size, Inc. MYSZ, a developer of proprietary, smartphone measurement applications, intends to release a new measurement solution technology that will revolutionise the way consumers shop for clothing online. The new technology is currently in the testing phase at several Israel-based academic institutions, and to date, has shown promising results under lab conditions.
Its innovative technology has been designed to allow consumers to measure themselves using their smartphone and then be matched with an online apparel item in their size. It believes that this technology has the potential to significantly reduce the margin of error for customers purchasing the wrong size apparel online.
Its R&D Engineers have developed a system that pulls data from anthropometric databases, which is then combined with studies on body measurements of diverse populations groups. MySize’s proprietary methodology combines this data with the measurements obtained from an individual via the smartphone app to estimate the circumference of different body parts that determine the size of garments.
In order to help consumers determine the key body measurements needed for fitting apparel purchased online, MySize invented a simpler and more accessible three step process: Perform convenient body measurements using a smartphone. Predict the body circumferences required by the retailer size-chart using the MySize’s new proprietary algorithms.
Recommend to the user their appropriate garment size according to the retailer’s size chart. Recording accurate and detailed body measurements via traditional methods is generally difficult. The main traditional methods involve advanced 3D scanners, or manually using multiple tape measures and callipers. In both cases, they can be expensive, require expertise to operate, and are not available to consumers. My Size is the only company that is able to do that based on recently awarded patented technology that uses actual body measurement. My Size’s patent has been approved in several countries, including the US.
“My Size has developed an innovative solution that will enable consumers to shop for better-fitting apparel online, across multiple vendors, and get their correct size, based on their individual smartphone-based body measurements. This level of accuracy and convenience is not offered by any of our competitors,” said My Size CEO, Ronen Luzon. “The US e-commerce apparel market alone is over $72 bn of the total e-commerce market of $394 bn, and we believe that the My Size solution will help reduce returns to retailers due to sizing issues, thereby benefitting consumers by assisting them to purchase apparel that fits their specific size.”

Advance network and High-speed sewing systems by Juki
Juki Corporation, the global leader in industrial sewing machines, with the commitment to “seam quality” is poised to enter a new era with Juki’s nextgeneration sewing system. The company recently launched its DDL-9000C-SMS (Digital Type) direct drive, high-speed, sewing system with automatic thread trimmer. Given are some of its highlights:
Computer-controlled vertically and horizontallydriven feed mechanism
The world’s first feed mechanism which is driven both vertically and horizontally has been computerised. The feed mechanism changes its feed locus in accordance with the material. As a result, the optimum adjustments can be achieved only by setting data on the operation panel. Furthermore, the vertically-driven feed mechanism helps keep the length of the thread remaining on the material after thread trimming constant.
Remaining thread at the end of sewing reduced to 3mm
A both-blade driven rotary knife system is adopted. The knife intersects with the thread to trim it just beneath the needle entry point. Since the knife ensures constant length of needle thread, the length of thread remaining on the material after thread trimming is, unlike thread trimming with the thread tensed, also constant. The Juki DDL-9000CSMS inherits JUKI’s thread trimming technology to allow the thread trimmer to start up as soon as the pedal is depressed.
Sewing Machine management utilising “IoT” (Internet of Things
Data adjusted in a sample-making workshop etc. can be transferred without contact to the sewing machines in your factory using your tablet. (USB port is provided as standard)
LK – 1903BNB Button sewing machine with the bird’s nest preventing / shorter thread remaining functions which eliminates thread nipping work
Users who are conscious about the finished quality of products manually nip, with scissors, the thread remaining on the material after thread trimming at the end of sewing, Now, the button sewing machine with the bird’s nest preventing/shorter thread remaining functions saves such users the trouble of nipping the thread, thereby preventing the sewing product from being damaged by manual threadnipping with scissors.
The sewing machine eliminates so-called ‘’bird’s nests’’ (thread tangling in on the wrong side of the material at the beginning of sewing). The thread is retained at the beginning of sewing and any excess thread is trimmed during sewing. As a result, the length of thread sewn in the seam is shortened, thereby achieving high-quality sewing performance while preventing thread from tangling in on the wrong side ‘’of the material.’’
Length of thread remaining on the material at the end of sewing has been reduced to 2 mm or less*. The newly-developed shorter-thread remaining mechanism trims the thread shorter after the regular thread trimming operation. Additionally, thread waste produced by thread trimming is withdrawn by suction. Thanks to this mechanism, the trouble of manual thread nipping is avoided.
The machine achieves sewing speed of 2,700 sti/min The machine’s thread trimming etc. have been increased to significantly shorten total cycle time. The machine is provided as standard with 50 different sewing patterns at higher productivity. The LK-1903BN is a lockstitch button sewing machine which is not only applicable to many different sewing specifications but also able to carry out cycle sewing and produces high-quality seams.

Headbag Process reliability for up to 3,500 x 1,000 mm with PFAFF
The PFAFF brand stands for 150 years of industry experience and expertise. PFAFF has been a leading innovator in industrial sewing and welding solutions for decades. By innovations and the product development the customers trust in their products and service worldwide. Trust in a strong international partner as well and catch up on their variety of products and competences.
When manufacturing high-quality car seats (decorative stitching) and airbags (functional and safety-relevant seams), the manufacturers (car manufacturers and automotive suppliers) count on the performance, quality and process reliability of the KL 110 CNC-controlled sewing unit. The customer list of the machine reads like a “Who is Who” of the automotive industry featuring prestigious brands from all continents. Particularly, when it comes to manufacturing airbags, the industry has in recent years become very sensitive due to a scandal (deaths, exploding airbags, recalls) involving a well-known Japanese airbag-manufacturer. The manufacturers demand solutions with customized individual and process-reliably controlled applications that ensure maximum reproduction of their airbags. Certainly one reason why the KL 110 has become a true “market performer” is, because the manufacturers trust the technology and knowhow of KSL based in Lorsch/Germany. Over the past 2.5 years more than 100 systems were sold around the world. KSL documents and implements all individual customer requests/ applications during the project phase. Over 80 of these machines were assembled at the Pfaff Industrial-facility in Kaiserslautern. Here the space capacities for production and assembly are bigger.
The KL 110, a freely programmable CNC-sewing unit featuring a turning head, is offered either in a one- or two-needle version and generates up to 2,800 stitches per minute. Due to the tangential orientation of the sewing head into random sewing directions, complex seams may be produced in top quality as back stitch or chain stitch. At the Texprocess 2017 in Frankfurt, the machine was presented with a barcode-scanner system to record data in multiple applications and immediate analysis via the HMI-operator panel. The turning head-technology is also used for applications beyond airbags resp. car seats e. g. for sophisticated decorative stitching operations on a KL 311 (virtually identical in construction to the KL110) at a European manufacturer of luxury goods. Likewise, the door panels and seats of the new model of a British luxury car manufacturer are sewn using a KL 311 with turning head.

Pegasus releases “LaRgo,” the FS700P series
Pegasus Sewing Machine Mfg. Co., Ltd. has released “LaRgo,” the FS700P series equipped with a right and left independent differential feed adjustment mechanism, hereinafter called “LaRgo ”. The new product, LaRgo is most suitable for sewing functional fabrics, employed for sportswear and similar garments. The focus on sportswear with designs employing mesh fabrics with excellent breathability and stretchable fabrics with excellent stretch ability has increased markedly in recent years. However, these designs require highly skilled operators when sewing these fabrics with different features. In order to solve these problems, Pegasus has developed the LaRgo, equipped with the world’s first, right and left independent differential feed adjustment mechanism. Thanks to these excellent features, this flatseamer consistently produces beautifully finished products regardless of the skill of the operator.
No matter what the circumstances, no matter the operator. Needle and threads advance smoothly at the sewer’s own pace. Stitching is straight and beautiful without worry. This precise and soothing rhythm prevents right or left misalignment of the fabric. LaRgo, with needle and thread, seams smoothly, drawing on long cultivated technical skills and the daily genesis of imagination. Given are some of its highlights:
- Easy to seam different fabric material: Effective to seam different right and left fabric material such as sportswear

MEGASEW presents latest industrial sewing machine
Since the establishment in 2005, Ming Jang Company has perceived with its sharp insight the gradual adjustment and change of setting up their manufacturing equipment in garment factories to be in accordance with the inclination of change in fashion trend and rising requirement for wearing comfort in consumer markets. The company continues working hard to enable MEGASEW machines and related service to completely accomplish our core value – in search of “The art of sewing.” 4th gen. of MJ101TX was recently launched by the company. Given are some of the features:
Machine Frame is Directed and Tilting Slightly to the Right Side
Operators do not need to force their bodies forward and can easily be with wide sewing view. And don’t need to put their chests against the back of Machine frames, it’s annoying heat will no longer be transferred to bodies!
- Operators are able to relax and sit straight up to perform stitching easily
- The weaknesses of Normal Flat Seaming Machine: While sitting straight up as usual, operators can only be with narrow sewing views
- Operators need to lean their bodies towards the left to get wider sewing view
Advanced Generation Design – “Triple Differential Ratio Feeding’’
On normal flat seam machine, if you want to adjust coarse stitch, you need to open up a big screw on the left side of the machine, and move up or down the feed Rocker Link, Now on MJ101TX the old-fashion hidden mechanism is reengineered and exposed on the right side of the machine, and with this change, the stitch adjusting is made visible and terribly easy. Furthermore, a revolutionary “Triple Differential Ratio Feeding’’ mechanism is created, by being supported by original patented Dual Differential Ratio Feeding in MJ62GX/GXD/DX machine series. Because of this new creation, the challenges for a flat seaming on differentstretching, different-weighted and different material of fabrics can be satisfyingly overcome!
To move out hidden bottom thread CAM to external type
The most weakness of hidden Bottom Thread CAM is it has restricted and sacrificed the ease of threading, maintenance, and the trouble-shooting while thread is entangled. The innovative design of MJ101TX not only eliminates the above-said problem, but also assures of a neat, clean and beautiful stitch because the Bottom Thread CAM is moved closer to sewing area where the looper is located.
Adjustable Front Needle Guard
MJ101TX adopts adjustable front Needle Guard design to protect only the four sewing needles but not to touch the retainer needle to solve the retainer needle easy breaking issue.
Superior Oil Providing and Withdrawing System
A well-designed oil providing and withdrawing system is decisive both to a longer lifespan of parts and machine and to the possibility that stitching speed can be enhanced. The innovative design of MJ101TX is featured with two high-efficient oil providing and withdrawing Oil pumps, which can make sure the oil can be drawn back by independent pump form Needle Bar and sewing Cylinder’s sewing area after the parts are perfectly lubricated.
SCD – Unprecedented Stitch Condenser for Flat Seaming (Optional)
The main purpose of SCD device is used to prevent the thread ends from breaking up. This condensed stitch provides a similar function of bartacking to step the thread ends from slipping away or taking off, so reworking will not be required!

Turel Group to introduce ShangGong Group’s latest machines
Turel Group, a pioneer in bringing latest technologies to India, has now grown to become a solution provider to sectors such as: Garment, luggage, automobile, upholstery, home furnishing and heavy duty. Turel offers end to end solutions and consultation from the drawing board to selection of machines, ordering machinery, utilities with correct specification, installation, providing training to operators, trial run and handing over the project. Turel Group is connected wherever there is an application for needle and thread, or seamless covering all segments.
Turel has introduced many leading brands to India including Brother, Duerkopp Adler, Kansai Special, Kingtex, Naomoto, Typical, Vibemac and many more. Turel is constantly searching and bringing the best automation to India. The Group has now tied up with leading groups from China such as ‘ShangGong’ who are major shareholders of Duerkopp Adler, Pfaff, KSL.
In 2018, Turel Group is looking to introduce two new brands in India: Mauser Special Sewing Machines and DAMSH Automats.
• Mauser – Entry level sewing machine
• Mauser special – High quality operations
• Mauser industrial – For heavy duty and shoe operations.
• Damsh automats covering – for Shirt + Trousers segment
Viraf Turel, Managing Director, Turel Group says “With these variants, we are aiming to capture every segment of the market.” He explains the new brands to enter Turel’s stable will in not any way compete with the technologies the company already represents, as the market segments and price differentiation make the target group very different.
He says, the new association started during his meeting with Zhang Min, Chairman and CEO, ShangGong Group at the recent CISMA 2017 in Shanghai. “At CISMA, I came to know about brands DAMSH, Mauser Special. Their working and potential excited me, so I decided to bring these machines to India and represent them.”
The ShangGong Group has over the last few years taken over the responsibility of brands like KSL, Duerkopp Adler, PFAFF, SG Gemsy, Beisler and Mauser Special. While SG Gemsy and Mauser Special are Chinese brands, the rest are German. The company makes world-class machines in China at competitive prices. Turel feels the ‘Made in China’ label will not in anyway erode the value of Mauser Special.
Meant for both export and domestic markets, Mauser’s value will be augmented by the level of after sales service to be provided by the Turel Group. The company will train its technical team on the highly automated machines and gain knowledge about its working and specifications even before the machines reach India market. The installation and handing will be done by trained technicians. To further strengthen the support service for Mauser, ShangGong is planning to open a representative office in India. “I will give comprehensive support – pre-sales (an application engineer will train the operators about the machine), after sales, and after after-sales to help them get maximum out of the machine.”

The latest innovation of Ramsons – Go Green Technology is a greener and earth-friendlier alternative for the fabric finishing and is undoubtedly an innovation for the future.
Fabcare presents latest garment dyeing solution
Established in 1995, Fabcare Garments & Textile Machinery Private Limited is one of the manufacturers and suppliers of garments & textile machinery in India. Its range is made as per the set industry norms and guidelines, utilising the finest raw materials and modern machines. This ensures the product’s performance, service line, strength and capacity. The offered range is made up of the finest textile machines, washer extractor and washing machine, which are widely demanded. In addition to this, the offered range is priced at the most reasonable rate possible.
Fabcare – Mist Spray – Resinator
Fabcare water free process for garment finishing is recently developed equipment, extending its use to all kind of surface treatments on garments. The main beneficiaries of the new technology are industrial laundries & garment dyeing house that will be able to carry out the application of softeners, dyes, antimicrobial products, among others, through a more eco-friendly, rapid and economic process.
It benefits finishing garment companies in both economic and environmental aspects. The use of the Mist Spray technology will derive in significant reduction of use of resources: Water use reduction up to 90 per cent, energy use reduction up to 47 per cent and eliminating chemical wastes associated to water dumping, all of them involved in garment finishing processes.
The equipment uses the exact quantity needed for the process; conditioning technology has been adapted to other specific textile finishing processes, like functionalization and exhaustion (Durable Water Repellence, Wrinkle-Free, 3D effects, CPD-Cold Pigment Dyeing.
- Technical aspects of the eco-innovative solution. The core technology consists of new equipment for treating garments. All processes are performed at room temperature with minimal quantities of water and chemicals.
- Conditioning processes: The simplest of finishing processes. Different kinds of softening applications can be performed through these processes.
- Functionalization processes: Specific treatments to give special properties to the garment such as resistance to make it waterproof, antimicrobial or anti-wrinkle and to give it UV protection. These treatments can be applied to protective clothing, sportswear or home textiles.
- Exhausting processes: Dyeing directly on garments. As production series are shorter than before, dyeing the garments directly is more common.
Water is precious – Let’s not waste it on Garment Dyeing
Today, garment-dyeing units have more options when it comes to both equipment and chemicals—the two main aspects of the business that were traditionally the least eco-friendly. Because of those increased options, and higher customer expectations when it comes to sustainability, what used to be an oddity is now essentially a requirement: According to some reports, 95 per cent of garment dyeing units are now looking for green products and services to appeal to customers.
When it comes to equipment, the big difference between traditional machines and eco-friendly options is in water and energy usage. There are now industrial garment dyeing machines that provide a superior quality while using up to 70 per cent less water and 50 per cent less energy than what the industry was used to, which is not only more sustainable, but more cost effective. Dyeing processes are also a big piece of the sustainability puzzle. Purchasing environmentally friendly chemicals isn’t enough; you have to be sure the chemical is being used in the proper amounts.
An overall solution
The moral of the story: Yes, garment-dyeing machines can be both effective and eco-friendly, but it isn’t enough to buy machines that claim to be green. We need to rethink the way we do dyeing-washing entirely. Fabcare Washers use up to 70 per cent less water, 50 per cent less energy, and approximately 50 per cent less chemicals enzyme, and delivers superior cleaning results compared to conventional washing machines. New Fabcare Splash washing machine is able to use less water and deliver a gentler wash, thanks to the revolutionary Splash technology, helping garment dyeing units to save on average almost a million liters of water each year.
Especially designed drum mechanically pressurized liquor to be penetrated into the garments. Said system provides 50 per cent more loading allowance along with 70 per cent saving from water, chemicals, heating energy, waste water, 40 per cent saving from electricity and 50 per cent saving from dye stuff. The result is higher quality, easier operation, more economic and competitive dyeing without any rejection even during the long process time. The Splash Series drum, as we named it, is a revolutionary drum structure with reverse scopes placed behind the beaters. This drum structure provides homogenous penetration of dyes-chemicals onto the fabrics, therefore increasing the effectiveness of washing quality.
During dyeing & washing, wherein the passage of water is restricted with the help of special drum structure; passed water from the drum through lessened perforations to the tub is pumped back into the drum. With said method the gap volume between inner drum and tub is completely depleted and no water is kept in this area during processes of dyeing & washing or rinsing. Mentioned gap area equals to 40-50 per cent of total required water volume of conventional machines and provides 40-50 per cent savings from required water. By eliminating the unessential water, which normally has to be kept in the gap area, water consumption reduces dramatically and depending on saved water, all chemicals, heating energy and waste water consumptions are reduced as same. Reducing the water filled into drum results in to use smaller motors where friction forces between drum and water are eliminated by keeping the gap area empty. This further allows loading the machines more than usual, which reduces the electricity consumption.

STAY ahead with innovative digital textile printing from Epson
Epson Italia S.p.A., an Epson Group company, has acquired For.Tex S.R.L., a leader in the textile printing industry. Epson Italia, which purchased a 50 per cent stake in For.Tex in 2012, completed the buyout in a move that strengthens Epson’s digital textile printing business. Located in Como, the heart of the Italian and European textile industry, For.Tex specialises in sales of textile printing inks and in the manufacture and sale of essential treatment agents used in textile printing processes. Epson and For.Tex have worked closely in the digital textile printing business since 2003 as part of Epson’s joint development of the Monna Lisa digital textile printer with F.lli Robustelli S.R.L. (“Robustelli”).

Epson Sure–Color F9370 for High-Speed Production Users
The 64-inch Epson Sure–Color F9370 can deliver industrial-level production speeds up to 1,169 sq ft per hour. The printer has several features to ensure hands-off accuracy at high print speeds. For example, the F9370 has a new integrated fabric wiping system that cleans the printhead to ensure that paper fibres don’t get stuck to the printhead plate.
Inside one of these fabric wipers is about 50 feet of fabric wiping fabric—enough to last a standard user about four to six months. Every time it wipes the head, it pulls up a new fresh piece of pristine fabric. The wiping system cuts down on the need for user intervention. During a long print or overnight print, the printer can automatically wipe the printhead during the middle of print and then resume printing. It only takes a few seconds to do.
There is a roll-to-roll media support system with automatic paper-tension controls to consistently feed the paper through the printer. The feeder supports a range of paper and roll sizes and is able to handle everything from fabric production to soft signage and home décor applications. The heavy-duty frame is factory aligned and doesn’t require manual adjustment.
The take-up reel also has a capacity up to 100-pound rolls. The grip roller is designed to handle heavy-weight papers all the way down to as light as 40-gram paper. Being able to handle heavier rolling means you can put more paper on the roll to be more productive. If you’re going to print overnight, you can load the printer up. Instead of having a 500-foot roll you may be able to go up to a 1,000-foot roll. That really can boost up your overall throughput for one of these machines.
At high printing speeds, getting the tension wrong between the two rollers can result in a light band or a dark band running across the print. The F9370 has a large feed roller that helps control the speed that the paper runs through the printer. At the beginning of the roll, there’s more weight on the roll. The printer needs a little more power to overcome the inertia of the paper. When you’re at the end of the roll, the roll is pretty light and it’s easier to turn. This big grip roller gives us more precise control. The printer also has sensors in the paper unwinder, the take-up system and the media-feed roller, which all work together to ensure the proper power, torque and tension are applied at all times during printing.
The dual-printhead F9370 uses UltraChrome DS Ink technology, which delivers high-density blacks, high contrasts and good colour saturation. The printer has a high-capacity ink tank that can hold up to three liters of ink per colour. The printer has a micro-weaving function to determine how many printhead passes are needed to blend the colours when putting the ink on Epson DS Transfer Papers. Like Epson’s other printers, the F9370 uses Wasatch SoftRIP TX software. The printer is managed from the Epson Control Dashboard, which can run cleanings remotely, check ink levels, update firmware and download new media profiles.
