The Textile Firm Making Polyester Desirable

An anonymous white factory building on a country lane in rural Japan seems a world away from the glamorous fashion houses of Europe.

Yet while the modest home of Japanese company Daiichi Orimono is indeed thousands of miles from France and Italy, representatives from the likes of Louis Vuitton and Gucci are regular and enthusiastic visitors.

This is because inside the facility 100 textile looms drum noisily, weaving unique – and much in demand – synthetic fabrics that look and feel like cotton and linen.

Polyester and nylon may have a bad historic reputation for producing cheap and uncomfortable clothes, but such is the quality of Daiichi Orimono’s textiles that they are now extensively used by many of the world’s most expensive fashion brands.

From the coats of Italy’s Moncler, to the sleek jackets of Prada and Celine, much of the fabric is made in Daiichi Orimono’s factory in Fukui prefecture, on the northern coast of Japan’s main island, Honshu.

But how did a small 70-year-old Japanese company that started out making sails reinvent itself as a key supplier to many of the world’s most coveted luxury fashion brands? And how did it become a business with annual sales of 23bn yen ($210m; £148m) despite still only employing 60 people?

It is a success story based on acute attention to detail, Japanese “omotenashi” or hospitality, and a rather driven and determined boss.

Daiichi Orimono’s chief executive Ryuji Yoshioka took over the reigns of the company from his father 35 years ago, when it was just a humble sports fabric manufacturer.

In the early 1990s he built the then new factory in Fukui, a region of Japan famous for its synthetic fabric manufacturing, and invested heavily in first class loom machinery.

Mr Yoshioka’s timing could not have been worse.

“As soon as we built the factory the [economic] bubble burst, and we lost clients [in Japan],” he says. “I had to be courageous because I had a great responsibility to feed my employees.”

Mr Yoshioka knew the company would fail if it relied upon the fickle Japanese market, so there was only one thing to do – he needed to attract overseas buyers.

“Back then there was no one who could speak foreign languages in the company, and no employees who were good at international sales, and so as the head of the company I had to go by myself,” he says.

“It was very stressful, but the responsibility and the sense of duty drove me forward.”

He started by targeting South Korea and Italy because those countries didn’t have a negative impression of synthetic materials.

At the time no other Japanese textile manufacturers were looking to sell overseas, and the industries that did export their merchandise used trading companies.

Mr Yoshioka decided that he’d cut out the middle man and try to sell direct to clients. He said this was vital so that he could properly explain about the fabrics his company could make.

So embracing omotenashi he decided to take potential clients out for dinner.

“I love delicious food, there’s nothing I cannot eat, and I love to drink, and anywhere I go I wouldn’t stop drinking before the client did.”

Soon Daiichi Orimono started to win overseas orders, and it hasn’t looked back.

Today, 70% of the company’s sales are to overseas customers – 30% to Europe, 30% to Asia, and 10% to North America. Its fabric is delivered to customers on giant rolls.

But what exactly makes Daiichi Orimono’s synthetic fabrics so special? There are numerous factors including the fact that its polyester and nylon is more densely woven than any others on the market.

Also vital is Japanese attention to detail and quality control, with Daiichi Orimono employees checking the yarns by hand and eye to make sure that the tensions and weaves are entirely correct.

Mr Yoshioka says he remembers very clearly the first day that Louis Vuitton and Moncler put in bulk orders.

“It was so surprising that I visited their companies and asked – is this really the fabric you want to use?

“I remember thinking repeatedly – do they think they are talking to a CEO of a different company?”

But the two fashion houses knew exactly who they were taking to.

While Daiichi Orimono currently does all its deals face to face, Mr Yoshioka says that in the future it is inevitable that the company will move into ecommerce, and so it is revamping its website.

Structural adjustment of textile machinery industry

The annual council is an important platform for companies to understand industry market information, discuss and develop future directions. At the meeting, Gao Yong, vice president of the China National Textile and Apparel Council, comprehensively analyzed the operation of the textile economy in 2012 and made judgments on the development trend of the industry in 2013.

According to the China Textile Industry Federation Entrepreneur Questionnaire, in the fourth quarter of 2012, China’s textile industry prosperity index was 58.61, indicating that the industry as a whole showed a warming trend. Gao Yong believes that this year’s export market has a recovery trend, but it depends on whether China’s textile and apparel international competitiveness can be maintained. With the urbanization and the growth of residents’ income, the domestic demand market will expand steadily; the price difference of cotton will continue this year, the pressure of the cotton spinning industry will not decrease, and the export of cotton products will still be affected; the industry will run smoothly, and the overall trend will be low and high.

Wang Shutian pointed out that in 2013, the focus of the textile machinery industry will still be industrial upgrading and structural adjustment. He said that although the economic operation of the textile machinery industry showed a weakening trend in 2012, the pace of structural adjustment of industrial enterprises has obviously accelerated.

Wang Shutian pointed out that the textile machinery industry should further explore how to promote technological innovation in the industry. As a large textile machinery country with a large production scale and a large variety of products in the world, domestic textile machinery enterprises cannot always follow the technical aspects of products, but strive to be the leader. To this end, China Textile Machinery Association is organizing member companies to strengthen technical cooperation and promotion among enterprises by creating innovative technology alliances in the textile machinery industry. At present, the “New Generation Textile Equipment Industry Technology Innovation Alliance” led by the Association is in the process of being promoted. Wang Shutian said that the establishment of the alliance will provide enterprises, universities and research institutes with technical cooperation and promotion platforms in line with market rules, and jointly break through the technical bottleneck of industrial development.
At the meeting, China Textile Machinery Industry Association elected Lu Honggang, vice chairman of China Textile Machinery and Equipment Industry Association, as the secretary-general of China Textile Machinery Industry Association, and Gu Ping and Chen Xingqiang as vice presidents.

Textile machinery industry

There are two types of textile machinery manufacturing: one is to manufacture the whole machine, and the other is to manufacture special spare parts (such as spindles, cradle, steel collar, wire ring, knitting needle, card clothing, heald, menstruation). Film, etc.). The special equipment for manufacturing the entire textile machine factory accounts for a small proportion of the whole plant equipment, so under certain conditions, it is possible to change the variety to produce other machinery. The proportion of factory-specific equipment and special assembly lines for manufacturing special-purpose parts is large (especially knitting needles and card clothing), and it is difficult to change varieties. In each processing type, the proportion of casters is gradually decreasing, and the proportion of cold stamping, grinding, electroplating, polishing, etc. is gradually increasing. CNC machine tools and multi-station automatic machine tools partially replace special machine tools, which enhance the adaptability and flexibility of production.

The textile machinery has strong manufacturability, complex structure and many parts. It needs to be pre-assembled or partially assembled before leaving the factory, and then subjected to production test or partial production test to ensure that the machine quality meets the requirements. The textile machinery factory has a well-equipped testing department.

There are many kinds of textile machinery parts, such as 1200-1500 kinds of double-cylinder sock machine parts, and the processing steps of parts are diverse. If a factory produces a variety of machines at the same time, it is necessary to properly arrange the production rhythm and front-to-back connection of the parts to ensure that the variety and quantity of parts required for the entire machine assembly can be provided on the assembly line as scheduled. Modern textile machinery industry adopts new management methods and methods such as computer and system engineering to manage enterprises.

The textile machinery industry is interdependent and mutually reinforcing with many other industrial sectors. For example, the steel for the production of knitting needles requires good elongation, toughness, necessary hardness, rigidity and elasticity, which requires the steel for the smelting and rolling of the metallurgical industry. The textile machinery needs motors that provide special functions in the motor industry, such as torque motors and stepping motors; high starting torque, high working time rate, textile special motors that can withstand harsh environments; DC motors with variable speed performance and variable frequency motors Wait. The electrical and electronic industry is required to provide high-quality components and more complex automatic control devices and microprocessors and microcomputers that can withstand 8000 hours of continuous operation per year. It is required that the petrochemical industry provide oil-resistant synthetic resin which is invariably deformed in lubricating grease for a long time and is superior to non-ferrous metals, and is used for manufacturing transmission parts, bearings and seals, etc., and also needs various engineering plastics and reinforced plastics with excellent performance. Wood with an increasingly scarce resource, or instead of metal to reduce weight and inertia, improve corrosion resistance, wear resistance and other properties. The rubber industry is required to provide various transmission belts, roll wrapping materials, aprons, various cushioning parts, etc., and other mechanical industries are required to provide general-purpose speed reducers, universal transmission parts, universal clutches, couplings, brakes and other mechanical parts. In addition, in order to meet the needs of aerospace technology, automotive industry, weapons industry, new technologies, new materials, new structures, such as high-precision, high-speed rolling bearings, carbon fiber reinforced plastics, micro-compressed air lines and valve parts, hydraulic torque Converters, hydraulic transmissions, and jet technology have also begun to be used in textile machinery to promote high speed and high efficiency.

After decades of development, China’s textile machinery industry has made great progress. However, compared with the world’s advanced technology, there are still some gaps and some serious problems. The overall technical level of textile machinery is low, the product development and innovation capabilities are weak, and the investment in research and development is insufficient. The technological transformation of enterprises is not enough, and the manufacturing technology is backward. The domestic basic industry is weak, and the basic supporting parts cannot keep up, which affects the quality of textile machinery products and the improvement of the level of mechatronics. The development of textile machinery products lacks organic cooperation with the process, which affects the use of textile machinery products. The policy is not matched, which affects the competitiveness of domestic textile machinery products. In response to these problems, China’s textile machinery industry has taken a series of measures to vigorously develop textile machinery infrastructure, introduce foreign textile machinery technology, differentiated development strategies, and the country’s corresponding policies to support the development of textile machinery, and achieved good results.
From 2008 to 2010, with the rapid development of the world and China’s textile industry, the greater the demand for textile machinery, the development of China’s textile machinery industry is facing a good opportunity. It is estimated that by 2010, driven by the upgrading of textile machinery, the output value of new products of China’s textile machinery industry will increase from 25% in 2005 to 50% in 2010; the export value of textile machinery products will account for more than 30% of the same period; The numerical control rate of textile machinery industry equipment will reach more than 10%, among which key key enterprises will reach 15%-20%; the key parts of major textile machinery products and the finishing process capability index of new special basic parts will reach 1-1.25. . Therefore, the development space of China’s textile machinery industry is huge.

Textile folding machine installation method

1. When the folding machine is transported by the manufacturer to your laundry room, you must first check the dryer regularly to check whether it is the machine you purchased and whether it is damaged or unusable during the transportation process. If there is a problem, take photos immediately and contact the manufacturer.
2. Before the folding machine, you should determine the installation position of the dryer. The installation position of the folding machine should consider the location of the transportation channel, raw material turnover, water inlet, steam inlet and sewer pipe. Here, the Xingxing washing equipment reminds you that the folding machine should be installed. Together with equipment such as dehydrators and dryers, the distance between these devices is reduced to prevent subsequent troubles due to improper selection of locations.
3. The textile folding machine belongs to one of the larger and heavier laundry equipments, so the machine should be installed on a solid foundation and kept at the same level to prevent the equipment from working due to the uneven location of the site and the installation location. Large vibrations occur, which affects the washing efficiency and the service life of the dryer.
4. Refer to the instruction manual of the folding machine, and find the electric control cabinet door of the folding machine according to the relevant contents in the manual. Connect the 380V three-phase power supply line and the neutral line according to the binding post. (There is to be reminded that the power of the folding machine must be 380V, no access to low voltage or high voltage)
5. Refer to the folding body label to indicate the corresponding access to the water inlet pipe and the steam pipe. If the steam condition is not available, the steam inlet port may be blocked. If steam heating is used, install pressure indicating devices and safety devices at the obvious location of the steam main pipe outside the machine.
Precautions:
1. The installation of the folding machine is completed through the above five steps. At the time of installation, we should also pay attention to the following problems: the installation environment of the folding machine is best for dry, ventilated, clean working environment, good working environment and extended drying The key factor in the service life of the dryer.
2. When installing, you should strictly refer to the installation contents provided by the manufacturer to carry out the step-by-step operation. Do not install it according to your own feelings.
3. When there is a problem during installation, you should contact the manufacturer at the first time.
