After carefully choosing the finest yarns, we create our own warps on which we weave the fabric on our looms. The particular structure of this base allows us to quickly produce any type of order, thus avoiding the need to stock large quantities and easily satisfying all requests very quickly.
This phase begins the customization process that brings the raw materials into their final state, divided into three categories: frosted, brushed, and double-sided. The modern double barrel-brushing machine, equipped with 24 rollers, which have tempered steel gaskets, allows us to customize the "pile" or height of the brushed finish. This incredible machine, carefully controlled by our staff, stores the settings enabling us to offer consistent batches, even over the course of several years. To achieve a specific and different finish for each fabrication, several machines must be used. Depending on the desired end result, the fabric will undergo one or more of the following processes: decatising, KD, copper-dipping, sanforizing, and/or free carpet, the final phase which creates dimensional stability, softness, support and fullness based on how the interlining will ultimately be used. The finishing is a very delicate process. Much attention is focused on this phase in order to minimize the inevitable variations due to the subtle differences within the batches of yarn, concentration of chemical products, temperature and humidity deviations and the climatic variables that constantly occur.
The CAD department represents the cornerstone of our business. For over twenty years we have been able to provide a model service that indulges our customers with the knowledge that with us, everything is possible. In addition to providing the highest quality of design service, we guarantee efficiency and timeliness. Our experienced operators listen and interpret the needs of our customers into a finished, sampled product within 24 hours. This service, of which we have been pioneers and initiators in our sector, has enabled us to show our customers the ease and proficiency of using the computerized cutting machine, a benefit they can no longer do without. Our service also extends to the design and cutting of bow ties, tuxedo belts, suspenders and lavalieres or ascots. Do you have a special or unusual model in mind? Ask for it and you will be heard!
When the fabrics come back from finishing, packaged on rolls of varying sizes depending on the weight and thickness of the article, they are spread with the help of automatic double-sheet trolleys and 45 ° cut to optimize yield and avoid waste. The operator, constantly present, performs the very important function of checking, layer by layer, the hand of the fabric, so that it does not change and remains consistent. The length and height of each fabric stack depends on the article (heavy, light, combined, single) and the quantity of dozens to be cut.
When the drafting is completed, Conveyor tables move the fabric to the cutting machines where it is "captured" by a suction mat and held in place, awaiting cutting directions coming from the central CAD. The blade, sharpened after every 2 meters of cutting, follows the CAD directed placement and sequentially cuts all the blades, tails and interior neckpieces with millimeter precision. Performing under vacuum enables this operation to avoid the dimensional deviations between the upper and lower layers. An operator picks up the cut material from the unloading belt and, after careful inspection, deposits it in the packing machine.
The pieces of cut interlinings are very delicate and must be delivered to the finished tie factory (often on the other side of the world) in perfect condition. A careful study, along with years of experimentation, has resulted in a system in which the pieces are neatly arranged on rigid cardboard trays and wrapped in a special film (never rubber-banded). These packages are then placed in our unmistakable boxes, subsequently palletized and covered in film again. The interlining, cut in a single piece up to 180 cm long, are, according to the customer's request, banded with soft, elastic polypropylene tape and laid flat in long boxes or folded in half for the use of boxes of standard size and consequent volume savings.
