Project Title: Flat bed attachment for feed –off-the arm
Project Guide:Mr.B.Agrawal & Mr.Sandip Mukherjee
Background: Sampling room activities for small manufacturers can not afford specialized machines. The use of limited machines dynamically to rapidly changing styles by some small and cost effective modifications was felt necessary. Thus the attachment was developed in the project work aims to provide multiple uses of FOA as DNCS/SNCS in sampling activities with minimum installation time.
Objective: To develop an attachment for feed –off-the arm sewing machine that converts it into a flat bed double needle chain stitch machine which can be used in sampling rooms. The attachment developed should be :
i) Easy to install and remove
ii) Provides flat bed for stitch non-tubular seams thereby increasing utility of FOA in cases of idle times.
iii) Save on the cost of investment for DNCS/SNCS wherever possible
Methodology:Information on feed –off-the arm and dncs, conceptual designing of the product, material study and selection, functional designing, product development, product testing, scope of implementation and limitations.
Findings: Attachment can be assembled and removed from the machine in 10 minutes and 8 minutes respectively.
Cost saving : Rs 33000/-
Space savings : 398 sq.in.
Conclusion: The study resulted in development of a fully functional flat bed attachment for feed-off-the arm sewing machine.
