All machinery required for the technical textile mills spinning,weaving,electronic,electric,IT system,knitting and the testing laboratory must be of Switzerland make in fact a complete plant by a single company would benefit the project execution in a time bound set up.
This department will have Weaving Machinery to produce fabrics for technical textiles and few Weaving Machines producing such fabrics as:
All types of Blended Fabrics for Suiting and Shirting.
Dobby Looms required for Suitings.
Wide width looms for manufacture of very wide fabrics.
Jacquard Machines for weaving furnishing,with label attachments and tailor-made Jacquard harnesses.Carpet Weaving systems for Rugs and Wall to wall Carpets for residential uses contract and transportation end uses.
Weaving preparation systems for the above with automatic drawing-in for warp and style changes with increase flexibility and productivity in the Weaving department.
High speed Sizing Machines with auto size mixtures for the above required Weaving machines.
Single yarn Sizing Machines for Sample looms if required.
This department next to Section-2 will accommodate all the machinery for yarn bleaching & dying in all forms and transported to pre-weaving section as per requirement or to winding department in case of Sewing Threads.
The area required will have to be planed after taking the floor space needed for each of the machine that has to be installed for processing yarn as per production plan.
The production plan is the main base for the entire project
The production of yarn as,gray,gassed,bleached,dyed,doubled has to be fixed based on the turnover of the production of yarn for marketing and yarn including sewing thread and for weaving.
The turnover in financial terms must include a net profit as per our plan and here,we need a marketing and sales department with exceptional experience.
The organizational plan is explained in separate section.
The building plan for this section will be prepared after fixing the production plan.
THE NEED FOR A CIVIL ENGINEER IS ESSENTIAL HERE AND FOR THE WHOLE PROJECT.
Water tank - Ground level - Shape-Round - 20 mtr wide x 15 mtr high.
Godown for storage of raw materials - 30 x 37 mtr which should be rodent and fire proof.
Mixing.Opening and Cleaning Machinery - 20 x 37 mtr which should be fire proof and with industrial lighting system.

Researchers at The University of Manchester have developed battery-powered textile yarns that can be used to make clothing glow in the dark. The yarns have been developed by The William Lee Innovation Centre (WLIC), based in the University’s School of Materials – and have the potential to be incorporated into clothing worn by cyclists, joggers and pedestrians.
The development, made from electroluminescent (EL) yarns, emits light when powered by a battery.
Dr Tilak Dias, head of the WLIC, said: “At the moment the EL yarn we have developed is less flexible than conventional yarns. But it is more flexible than current optical fibres that are incorporated within fabrics to provide illumination. EL yarn can be easily incorporated into a knitted or woven fabric and the resultant active illuminating fabric provides illumination when it is powered.
The yarn consists of an inner conductive core yarn, coated with electroluminescent ink – which emits light when an electric current is passed through it – and a protective transparent encapsulation, with an outer conductive yarn wrapped around it. When the EL yarn is powered, the resultant electrical field between the inner and outer conductor causes the electroluminescent coating to emit light.
“The luminance of a single strand of the EL yarn is greater than that of photoluminescent glow yarns, which are currently used in some high visibility applications. Weaving or knitting the yarn in a particular manner, so that more yarn per unit area is achieved, improves the luminance of the EL yarn.”
The team also think the yarn could be used for flexible woven or knitted road safety signs that communicate written instructions.

This is just a tip of the iceberg we see in technical textiles in developed countries.
In India we do not have a hi-tech technical textile mill or a college exclusively for awarding a degree in technical textiles.
In view of this present predicament for students interested in perusing their career in technical textiles at degree level, to begin with a project for a Technical Textile college attached with a full fledged working technical textile mill and Research Institute,having DEEMED UNIVERSITY STATUS are PROPOSED in this project.
The degree will have 4 themes:
* Specialist knowledge required for technical textiles
* Project management set in the context of technical textiles
* Underpinning knowledge of textiles
* Planning and research skills combined with a work based evaluation
The need for the project is deeply serious for the future of technical textiles in INDIA.The project may be taken up at any level from Govt of India to State level Universities,Joint ventures with foreign collaboration by private organizations.
Every aspect of the project is posted step by step including the capitol required to complete the fully integrated technical textile college and Research University.
Technical Textiles in the World.
Technical textile is the term given to textile products manufactured for non aesthetic purposes, where function is the primary criterion.
This is a large and growing sector and supports a vast array of other industries.
Technical textiles include textile structures for autmotive applications, medical textiles (e.g. implants), geotextiles (reinforcement of enbankments), agrotextiles (textiles for crop protection), protective clothing (e.g. against heat and radiation for fire figther clothing, against molten metals for welders, stab protection and bulletproof vests), spacesuits (astraunats).
Textiles used for industrial purposes are commonly known as ‘technical textiles’. Technical products are textile products manufactured mainly for their performance and functional properties rather than decorative purposes. Technical textiles can be classified into many fields, such as medical textiles, geotextiles, protective clothing, agro textiles etc.
Over all growth rates of Technical Textiles in the world are about 4.0% per year greater than the growth of home and apparel textiles i.e. at the rate of 1% per year.
In present market opportunities and in free quota system the importance for technical textile materials is increasing to accommodate the needs of requirement. Nowadays the most widely technical textile materials are used in filter clothing, furniture, hygiene medicals and construction material.
