Project Title: 2 in 1 presser foot for single needle flat bed
Project Guide:Mr.S.S.Ray & Prof. B.Banerjee
Background: From previous studies it was observed that there is a unique problem regarding use of single presser foot in the assembly line production. Whenever it was needed for attaching the concealed zipper or attaching the piping, the bundle was directed to that particular machine consuming a lot of time as well as breaking the co-ordination of production. Keeping these elements into consideration the project of making 2-in-1 presser foot was designed which can solve this problem to some extent.
Objective:To make a 2-in-1 presser foot which can be used like the single (right or left) presser foot and also like the normal foot.
Methodology: The proposed mechanics of the presser foot to be made is the basic hinge system followed by the spring system to support the rigid position of presser foot. The presser foot must not move even a little or vibrate when either side of the shank is lifted for the use single presser foot.
Findings: The 2 in 1 presser foot for single needle flat bed developed & total cost amounts to Rs.294.50/- beneficial for sampling department and time saving.
Conclusion: The presser foot made is very significant to the garment industry as it will not only help to save the time of many operations but also help to assemble those machines which are dedicated to the operation made by the single foot, to the main line assemble.
