These products form the basis for the business, which also sells other manufacturers’ products worldwide and offers custom marking applications and consulting services.

A detector at the inspection table stops the fabric at each mark, giving the inspector a chance to catch more defects. The product improves inspection accuracy by 7 to 12 percent and reduces the number of garment irregulars, according to Stanford.

StanforCheck is installed at the sanforizer and uses invisible markings to provide real-time calculations of sanforizer shrinkage. Stanford said there has been a great amount of interest in the product; the first installation occurred in November at a US denim plant.
Stanford Technologies is anticipating the rollout of LooMarx and StanforCheck in Europe in the first quarter of 2006, followed by Asia in the second quarter. The company’s 2006 goals include developing strategic alliances with original equipment manufacturer partners and a worldwide
