How can I convert kg into meters for knits fabric.
You can convert fabric requirement kilogram to meters provided you have necessary information for the calculation. You need to know following parameters for the given fabric.
- Fabric width
- Fabric weight per square unit (Normally fabric weight is represented per square meter in grams. (GSM) )
- Fabric weight that you want to convert in meters
Formula to know approx length of the roll/thān from its weight
Weight of a fabric roll is calculated using this formula
Areas of the fabric roll in open width X weight per square unit
Therefore to convert kg to meter use following formula
Fabric length (in meters) = [(Fabric weight in gram)/ (Fabric GSM *Fabric Width in meter)]
Fabric length (in meters) = (Fabric weight * 1000)/(Fabric GSM *Fabric Width in inch * 0.0254)
When weight is converted into Kg and fabric width is taken in inches
For example, fabric weight of a roll/ thān is 50 kgs, fabric GSM 250 and fabric width 46 inches (open width).
Therefore, Fabric length = (50*1000)/(250*46*0.0254) = 171.17 Meters
Note: The above formula will give you approx length of the fabric roll as density of the fabric throughout the roll length may change. Secondly if you include more than one roll in the calculation, width of the fabric may also vary roll to roll.
I hope this will help you in your work. Thanks for learning with OCS.
