Cone To Use Quickwash In Denim Production

The Cone Mills denim plant in Cliffside, N.C., has purchased its first Raitech Quickwash Plus machine. The testing machine will be incorporated directly into the manufacturing process on the production floor. Cone hopes the machine will help reduce the number of denim reruns.Some Quickwash Plus customers keep the machine in the lab, said Lan Brady, quality analysis manager, Cone Mills. But for us, its best suited for use in our process.Brady said plant reruns were extremely time-consuming. A trip to the warehouse was required to cut a two-yard denim sample, followed by three wash cycles over a 12-hour period. With the new machine, 7 inches of fabric is required for the test, and the test time is reduced to 30 minutes. (See Measuring Up, TI, this issue).
