Textile industry is a major industry. It provides employment to billions of people around the world. It satisfies the basic need for clothing in a human being. One cannot imagine the world without this industry. The entire structure of the world may change if the textile retail shops and manufacturing industries were to vanish from the surface of the Earth. There are billions of textile mills and manufacturing plants in the world.
There is no doubt that the manner in which textile mills function has changed considerably in the recent years. Modernization has touched every industry in the world. Textile manufacturing plants are no exception! Machinery and software has come to be used in a large quantity. Techniques for spinning, weaving, dyeing and printing, and garment manufacture have evolved immensely in the recent years.
A number of machines are available for the textile industry. In fact, there are machines for almost every stage of textile manufacture. Some companies make use of all the machineries and make their units fully automated. On the other side, there are some companies that make use of only a limited amount of machineries. They are semi automated textile manufacturing units. Both have their pros and cons.
