Lab Dip Development means the sample which is dyed according to buyer’s requirements (similar shade and so on). Depending on lab dip development sample dyeing and bulk production dyeing planning is done.
Object of Lab Dip: The main objectives in lab dip are as follows:
- To calculate the recipe for sample dyeing.
- To compare dyed sample with swatch by light Box or Spectrophotometer.
- To calculate revise recipe for sample dyeing.
- Finally approved Lab Dip (Grade: A, B, C & D)
Process Sequence of Lab Work: Lab work plays an important role in dyeing process. Bulk dyeing process completely depends on the lab dip development work. Lab work is completely managed as the following sequence.
Lab Dip Requisition from buyer
Entry in the computer
First recipe is given by swatch/pantone number
Grading of sample (A, B, C, D)
Yarn and knit sample send to buyer
Approved by buyer
Order for bulk production
Production card with approved sample and recipe send to production section.
Anyhow, lab work is important because it related with the buyers satisfaction. If the lab dip is developed as the given swatch or pantone number which is given by the buyer then it will get bulk production order, which is the main goal of a company.
So, dyeing lab management and its lab dip work is important for a dyeing industry.
