Machinery Required for Setting up In-house Testing Lab in a Garment Export House

It is really a good idea to set up an in-house textile lab for checking basic physical properties of textiles. Why depend on Third Party testing labs for the confirmation of specification like fabric count, yarn count, and color matching?

Fabric properties like dimensional stability, color bleeding, and color fastness to washing can’t be ignored. The buyer would not accept any goods failing these basic requirements. As an export garment manufacturer don’t start cutting fabric for production without testing above mentioned fabric properties.

It is also true that an export house can’t keep all types of machinery required to test buyer test specifications. It is not feasible though. The primary test required for physical properties and machine required to do those tests for the in-house testing lab set up have been enlisted in the following table.
