With the aim of promoting the professional development of companies in the textile sector, at AMSlab we are preparing a series of courses that will touch on all topics of interest to the industry, through AMSlab Academy. Ensuring the quality and conformity of products and textile materials against customer requirements and/or current regulations will help reduce claims, penalties, product recalls, customs blockages or even delays in customer service. . In webinar format, the courses will be taught by highly qualified professionals in the field and will last approximately one hour, except for those matters that require more dedication.
This is a great opportunity to reinforce internal control with product tests that quality, product health and purchasing departments should be aware of to ensure the quality and safety of their products.
Among others, contents related to both the quality control part of the chemical laboratory and the physical one will be covered.
The first course of the AMSlab Academy, “Manufacturing Process: Textile fibers“, will be on Thursday, June 10, at 12.00 h in the online mode and will be taught by Esteban Ramírez, director of the AMSlab physical laboratory. The purpose of this course is to know the most important and common fibers used in the fashion industry, their characteristics and morphology seen under the microscope. We will also see the different identification and quantification processes for both fabrics made with a single fiber, as well as fabrics made with several fibers. With the final objective of being able to correctly inform the composition of a fabric or a garment in its composition and conservation labeling.
The course will be live and all attendees will have the opportunity to ask their questions to the speakers at the end of it.
As an advance, some of the topics that will be addressed in the courses are the following:
- Health and safety: chemical risks
- Sustainability: Verification tests
- Quality control in fabrics
- Innovation in textiles: new analyzes against fraud
- Regulatory scope of the textile sector: mandatory regulations
- Labeling regulations
- Child safety in the textile sector
- Innovation in textile technology: New fabrics and trends.
As a launch promotion, the first courses will be free.
