Technical Knitting | Applications of Technical Fabric Structures

Md. Emdad Sarker
Assistant Professor
Department of Fabric Engineering, BUTEX 

Technical knitting is an advanced capability which allows textile components to be used in the technical field rather than traditional textiles. Technical knitting is an exciting capability, making it possible to create ground-breaking textile structures, constructions and textures as fully fashioned textile components which just can’t be achieved in flat-weaving [1]. In this article, some technical knitted fabrics along with their applications have been described.

Applications of Technical Knitted Fabrics
1. Bandages 
Bandages are designed to perform a whole variety of specific functions depending upon the final medical requirement. The most common application for bandages is to hold dressings in place over wounds. Such bandages include lightweight knitted or simple open weave fabrics made from cotton or viscose that are cut into strips then scoured, bleached, and sterilised. Elasticated yarns are incorporated into the fabric structure to impart support and conforming characteristics. Knitted bandages can be produced in tubular form in varying diameters on either warp or weft knitting machines. Compression bandages are used for the treatment and prevention of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), leg ulceration, and varicose veins and are designed to exert a required amount of compression on the leg when applied at a constant tension [2].

How to protect the Textile and RMG Business in Bangladesh?

How to protect the Textile and RMG Business in Bangladesh?
Industry-University Collaboration
The readymade garment (RMG) and the Textile industry of Bangladesh are playing an important role in the national economy and this sector is directly employing about 4 million people. Moreover, when considered indirectly, the country's various types of business, including bank-insurance, have developed based on this industry. That is why this sector is the country's focal point and the most important as well. Various initiatives should be taken for its development and expansion. Currently, Bangladesh's readymade garments and textile sector is mainly doing the business with traditional items like t-shirt, polo shirt, tank top, trouser and other low valued basic items. These items are cheaper and of course less profitable considering the value of time and our resources whereas time is considered money in today's world. Unfortunately, because of the large quantity order, we are forgetting about other possibilities.
