How has been the journey in manufacturing since the beginning?
Well the journey has been long and exciting, two decades to be precise also one that has presented challenges and opportunities equally, while technology was constantly changing and developing. B-Tex witnessed frequent innovations in the industry and that meant we too had to adapt quickly and bring out novel automations to be relevant in the industry.

Can you brief more about B-Tex Auto-Cut-Pack?
There’s no denial of the fact that manpower crisis and space crunch poses a severe challenge to the textile industry, automation is the need of the hour in each and every process that obviously helps organizations to have optimal manpower, increase production and have quality MIS reports. Nirvana helps you to achieve all of these with Italian Know-how and Software.
In B-Tex Auto-Cut-Pack System, we Inspect the fabric and log all the defect in IGS (Inspection & Grading Software) through Batch to Batch or Trolley to Trolley Mapping Machine and later on optimize as per the severity to generate beneficial Cut-Pan. Finally the data is transferred to B-Tex Auto-Cut-Pack machine model NIRVANA, where it rolls the fabric at high speed of 80 m/m and pack it with LDPE and HDPE film with lots of other benefits.
What are the benefits of Auto-Cut-Pack?
Nirvana is a boon to Inspection and Packing department . Due to optimised cut plan, 2-3% A-Grade fabric is saved and mind it, its lots of business and profit for quality and quantity fabric manufactures.
Along with this, it reduces manpower up to 60% as their is bare minimum handling of fabric due to automatic packing with sorting and all the extra manpower is eliminated. All defect entries through touch screen in Italian software delivers lots of reports like shift-wise, sort-wise, operator-wise, production and department-wise to improve quality. 40% space is also saved as Auto-Cut-Pack singlehanded delivers 80,000 mtr/day with LDPE and HDPE packing with single operator. There are lots of other benefits like Auto-Samples, Folders, Barcode, Automatic labelling, etc.
We have successfully delivered this system with software to some high quality fabric manufacturers in last few years.
