Method and system for attaching a pocket to a portion of a garment
US 3670675 A
Abstract
A system and method of fastening a pocket to a portion of a garment is described. Garment working stations are arranged in a preselected manner about a platform with predetermined accurate alignment of their individual garment working operations. Each garment portion is automatically deposited on the platform and aligned with an orientation selected to bring its desired working areas with precision opposite the garment working stations. A garment portion indexer is employed which clamps the panel to preserve its automatically obtained alignment effectively throughout the working operations. The indexer accurately indexes the aligned panel step by step to each of the stations continuously retaining its grip until that is no longer needed. Pockets are deposited on the platform and automatically aligned with a selected indexed panel position. The pocket is attached to the panel at a precisely determined panel location after being transferred thereto with an automatic actuated transfer device. Pocket manipulation is uniquely performed at a garment station to precisely align pocket and panel parts as well as prepare completion of pocket attachment. Aesthetic completion of panel to pocket assembly is obtained with accurate bar tack operations, assuring a repetitively neat product. An automatic panel dart forming station is shown for the attachment of a rear garment panel for a pair of trousers to a back pocket. High speed pocket to garment attachments are obtained.
