Use of Sustainable Materials And Robotics In The Apparel Manufacturing Industry
The growing awareness on the adverse effects of textile industry on environment is encouraging customers to opt for sustainable materials. Unlike natural materials, synthetic fibers take long time to decompose as they are made from petroleum products. Biological materials like spider silk are light and have tensile strength that are used in making garments. Some of the companies also started creating a decomposable synthetic version of spider silk. For example, Spiber Inc., a Japanese biomaterials specialist, was the first to produce artificial spider silk. The company uses genetically modified E.coli to produce the silk proteins which are used to produce silk fibers. Apparel manufacturing companies also have cameras linked to computers to detect the edge of a piece to carry out stitching, thus indicating high degree of automation in the apparel manufacturing industry.

The apparel industry has been transforming labor-intensive manufacturing facilities to automated production facilities. This has enabled the textile manufacturers to produce at a lower cost. For instance, Software Automation Inc. introduced a new approach to sewing automation. The company is using advanced computer vision systems to eliminate fabric distortion issues where a camera is used to track stitching at needle and coordinates the movement of the fabric using lightweight robots.
