tow. There are three varieties Normal, Sparkle and Low pill.
Viscose: A regenerated cellulosic fiber which is made from wood pulp. Generally

it is dope dyed by suppliers and is in fibrous form. The production operations at our plant are coordinated by the PRODUCTION PLANNING & CONTROL department. Its role is to gather information of all stock at various stages and communicate with the different departments; so that production activities are synchronized. We have six months order in advance and divide the production activities bi-annually in unison with the market, and our JALGAON and THANE units. First in the sequence is the RAW MATERIAL GODOWN where the basic inputs procured are stored, accounted for and intimated to the COMMERCIAL department. The first stage of processing is DYEING. According to a dyeing plan set by the production planners, the dyeing department is issued tops. Fabrics and yarn produced at further stages which are grey or do not have the desired pigmentation are also dyed. Some polyester is procured in the form of tows. These are cut and converted into sliver form and converted into tops in the CONVERTER section. The material is sent back to the raw material godown from where it is sent to the dyeing department. Only after a perfect match with standard shades are the tops sent to the RECOMBING department. In the Recombing department tops of polyester and wool in sliver form are blended and mixed to produce a uniform sliver (65% polyester & 35% wool). The processing ensures that fiber is untangled. Straightened and parallel. All there Tops (polyester and wool) are sent for spinning in the WORSTED SPINNING department. The function of spinning is to form yarn fiber. The yarn made is wound on a bobbin and is called cheese. *Tops roll of sliver *Tow roll of continuous film or filament of fiber *Sliver fiber in a rope like form.

Simultaneously polyester and viscose fiber is dispatched from the dyeing department and raw material godown (grey i.e. Undyed) to the blowroom or P/V SPINNING department where it is mixed in proportion (67% polyester and 33% viscose). This mix is transformed into sliver in the carding section which further and produces a poly-viscose yarn All yarn is stored for intermediate purpose in a DOUBLE YARN ROOM from here the yarn is issued to warping section of the WEAVING department. At this stage yarn is woven into fabric. In the MENDING department this fabric is under scrutiny for any defects to be identified and removed. Every meter of fabric produced is checked. The next stage of processing is the FINISHING department. Fabric is washed cleaned and subjected to mechanical / chemical operations with the aim of giving the fabric a smooth regular texture, luster and anti-creasing effect. In the FOLDING department, finished fabric is cut to proper length, wound and packed properly. In addition to this we have a PLUSH department where we manufacture FURNISHING fabric by procuring yarns from outside. The packed goods are stocked in the WAREHOUSE from where it is dispatch as per sales note to respective dealers. This transfer is communicated to the SALES office.
