Cotton gloves are widely used in various industrial enterprises, wholesale facilities, building objects, car repair, etc. This market niche is still not fully occupied, so the correct approach can be organized quite profitable and efficient production that brings a regular income.
The Necessary Equipment
The first step in the organization of production of cotton gloves is the acquisition of a special glove machines. One of the largest manufacturers of such equipment is a company from Japan «Shima Seiki», which in1965 created the first automated machine for knitting gloves.
However, the price of used Japanese machine in good condition can range from $7000 to $10000 and the payback period it will be 2-3 times more. Korean equipment is also famous for its good quality. However in terms of price and quality the optimal appliances are machines from Chinese manufacturers. Many buyers are choosing such equipment.
The cost of the new Chinese-made knitting machine is highly dependent on the manufacturer and the capabilities of the machine itself, now the price ranges from $ 2,000 to $ 3,000. The maximum rate of production of gloves is approximately 120 pairs/8 hours. This parameter strongly depends on the thickness yarn and the quality of the needles that love to break down at high speeds.
If you want to gradually expand the range of cotton gloves, then you need to buy a Japanese machine Shima Seiki SFG-I or equivalent, which allows you to knit gloves from a very thin thread (Class 18G). These cotton gloves can be used in the electronic industry, medicine and jewelry workshops. This range is significantly expanding market.
The operation principle of the glove of the equipment is the same the only difference is the installation of the program. In one type of machines the number of loops and rows is specified by using plastic chain changing the number of knitting units. Another type of equipment works on the basis of the sizes entered with the digital display. On this scoreboard displays the entire production cycle during the process of knitting gloves. After finishing the knitting machine makes a thread cut on the tip of each finger gloves then these ends should be wrapped inside the gloves. To machine should be supplied air for this procedure that will provide the necessary pressure by means of a stationary compressor.
So shop for the production of gloves should contain the following equipment: knitting machine, serger for finishing the edge of glove, line for the coating of PVC, packaging machine. When setting up production also needs to consider the cost of installation, training, commissioning, etc.
Raw Materials for the Production of Cotton Gloves
The following types of yarns used to manufacture gloves:
- Cotton yarn, which is made of pure cotton or blends in which cotton mixed with synthetic filaments for increased strength.
- Yarn of pure wool and wool blend.
- Different types of artificial fibers.
In order to achieve the desired density and size of gloves in glove manufacture is selected yarns of different thicknesses. After machine already made the glove on its palmar portion is applied PVC coating of the required thickness and pattern. The coating is applied screen printing method using a matrix after that gloves sent into a special drying chamber. For printing the raw material called plastisol.
Staff for the Production of Cotton Gloves
Depending on production on the one line are 2-3 persons. Usually require one or two line operator and one adjuster. The newbies are recommended at the initial stage to work in one shift it will give you an opportunity to train staff and move to hour work schedule.
Goods in this category enjoys a certain popularity in various fields. First, they are widely used by workers to protect hands in various industrial enterprises. In addition cotton gloves are always needed in large quantities in garages, in the construction of various objects, at wholesale depots for the sale of building materials, in loading and unloading etc. The above facts indicate that this product is quite popular in various branches of business and industry, so the creation of enterprise for production of cotton gloves can be a profitable investment that can be profitable in the near future.
