Raw Cotton Selection &Contamination Testing
Since, ACRO is representing Pakistan throughout the world the Quality team makes sure that the best available cotton isselected, whether it is our self-yielded cotton or from any other vendors. Selected cotton is first sent to the lab for grading via cotton grading machines that are set up; only the fully qualified product is sent over to the mixing department. The grading criteria are primarily the staple length, fibre strength and weight. Rejected cotton is either sold out or returned to the vendor. While the cotton is tested for quality, we also conduct a contamination test to ensure the removal of all type of impurities to be able to produce 100% pure cotton bales.
Quality Assurance in Carding, Drawing Comber, and Auto Cone Departments
On verification of cotton quality at the mixing stage, it is sent over to the Carding department where the cotton is further processed by carding machines. Before further processing by the Drawing department, any dust from the cotton is removed by multi drum waste dust remover JYFL III 27 installed in the Carding section. The next stage is the Drawing stage where the cotton is further verified by the QA team using Rieter RSB D30 machines. Similarly the cotton is passed over to the Comber and Auto cone departments, and the products are stamped for quality check at every single stage.
Final Fibre Testing By Uster AFIS Pro Version 2
The final testing of the cotton fibre is done by the world recognized and industry recommended Swiss machinery "Uster AFIS Pro Version 2". We are one of the few textile mills with this latest machinery installed in our laboratories, as it is the first requirement of our clients. Uster testing and verification is the most important part of our product and service demonstration to our clients, throughout the world. Before final packing of yarn, the QC team is responsible for matching the product consistency with the quality standards defined internally as well as the client's requirements.
- The company is in process of acquiring ISO-9001:2000 certification that will be an evidence ofimplementing the industry best practices.
- We're also appearing for Uster certification for our ginning plant, which will be a great achievement as currently only 5 to 6 ginning units in Pakistan are Usterised.
With our continued efforts we will not only build Pakistan's business reputation throughout the world, but also set the benchmark for the textile industry.
