View all copies of this ISBN edition:

As in previous editions, the processes of modern clothing manufacture are explained alongside the equipment which is used. The latest developments – as well as established methods – are described for cutting, sewing and other methods for joining materials and pressing. Manual, mechanised and automated methods are explained and their comparative advantages for certain purposes are considered, as well as the applications of computer control and robotics, and many photographs are used to show new generations of equipment. The book takes account of the increasingly market–driven nature of the business, as well as technical and economic factors and the skill requirements of labour–intensive production. The role of technologists in clothing product development is addressed in a new concluding chapter.
