The spinning operation consists of transferring the yarn from the package as delivered (tube or spool) onto a rigid cone. This step serves to switch the yarn onto a support that is more suitable for subsequent processing (warping and weaving) whilst at the same time measuring it.
For manufacturers of yarn-dyed fabrics, this process permits the balancing of the spools with each other so that problems of center selvedge can be avoided. The modern Fadis machines that we have recently installed make allows the optimization of this process.

The operation related to the preparation of the warp consists of transferring the yarn, held on the spinning reels or spools, onto the beam to be loaded behind the loom ready for weaving. The purpose of the warping is to assemble a certain number of warp threads on a single beam.
Over the last few years Olmetex has invested in a modern department installing Karl Mayer machinery, both sectional warps for large production runs and vertical warps for small samples in order to develop designs and special items as quickly as possible.
The weaving operation results...
The weaving operation results in obtaining fabrics characterized by two elements: warp and weft intercrossed to form a predefined design. In this phase, the beam with the warp threads is loaded onto the frame by way of the appropriate carriages or alternatively these threads are knotted to those already aligned and part of the previous batch.
The expert hands of Olmetex’s staff permit the realization of compositions and particular details leading to the creation of exclusive fabrics. The Company has recently invested in a new battery of Picanol frames famous for their versatility and precision, unique in their kind.

Finishing covers all those processes used to give the fabric added value that can be determined by the appearance or by a particular feel.
Research and the continuous interreaction between the style department and the creative staff of the production department allow us to experiment with the creation of new products leading to Olmetex’s very distinct samples. The Company stands out in the market for its experience and ability to develop and ennoble fabrics by way of technical and performance finishes.

Quality control consists of inspecting semi-finished or finished fabrics using specific machinery (a fabric speculum or mirrors) under the watchful eyes of our experienced and qualified staff.
Market demands increasingly require ready-to-cut products; this has necessitated a series of investments in the control department so that the fabrics are inspected during the manufacturing processes up to the final shipment using a tracking and batch system.
The needs of the market have...
The needs of the market have led the Company to create an internal laboratory dedicated to the verification and reliability of all production according to international regulations.
This structure has been expanded and renewed over the years to become an increasingly important reality, characterized not only by highly trained and educated staff but also by state-of-the-art and certified equipment.
