While it is necessary to acquire sewing skills, it is equally important to learn the art of maintenance of sewing machines. A clean, well-oiled sewing machine is essential for good output and safety. The care and maintenance of a sewing machine helps to improve its working. This consists mainly of cleaning, oiling, and right handling, which contributes to good output, quality production and safety of the workers. Care and maintenance is also necessary in order to operate the machine smoothly and for its long term use. It is very important to identify the sewing defects such as upper thread break, bobbin (lower) thread break, bunching of threads, skipped stitches, irregular stitches and stitches that are not formed properly, etc., for proper working of sewing machine and good quality production.
Thus a session was held for the trainees to discuss the cause and different defects and the corrective action to be taken.
The main points covered were:
Maintenance of sewing machines in preventing stitching faults
Regular cleaning of machines to remove lint and trash
Regular oiling and lubrication of machines
Maintenance of oil levels in the machine
Check for wear and tear on critical parts
Check for missing/defective/rusted needles etc.
It was an enlightening session for the participants.
