This Jeans production company relied on conventional permenganate based bleaching process in finishing their products.
Introducing the eco-innovative laser bleaching technology will replace the conventional chemical based technique, as well as save on water and energy consumption for the finishing process. It will also decrease the number of products that need to be reworked.

A Jeans manufacturing company used an old CAD software requiringmanual input for the textile cloth cutting process. Breakdown of the material losses accross different section revealed that the cutting leftovers represent the majority of those losses.
Upgrading the CAD software to a fully automated version reduces losses, through optimizing the patron designs. Savings are calculated to be 2% increase of production with same input raw material.
