9) Several fold savings
The process increases the fabric utilization by almost 15%-22% as compared to conventional processes. Fabric cost constitutes major chunk (50%-60%) in any apparel. The increased utilization not only saves fabric, it has a ripple effect over the entire garmenting scenario -- saving fabric > saving yarn > saving dyes and chemicals > saving man hours > saving power.
10) Fast - Reduces Lead time by 50%
DPOL acts a very strong tool for high end fast fashion goods, the entire process of designing and production can be condensed to 3-4 hours, starting from the concept phase to the final product for each garment.
11) Handles small orders / Unique / Difficult to copy / More variety and Variability
The main advantage of DPOL technology is its capability to support small orders. Typically an order size may vary from unity (single) to multiplicity. High end apparel / Designer Wear produced are as limited editions and, it is difficult to produce them as most of the available technologies support large orders.
DPOL technology supports orders as small as one, thereby giving an edge over other technologies, Moreover most of the apparel produced are unique ( one copy of each ) to provide uniqueness and individuality without any added cost.
The products are difficult to copy as the garment components are directly woven from yarns as per their end requirement, thereby avoiding cheap adaptations and duplicity.
12) Ease of designing (Computer Simulated)
The technology proves to be an indispensable tool for conceptualization and visualization of the design. The tools available with the process simulates the entire design onto a computer interface thereby adding an alternative view to the designer, thereby giving ease of designing.
13) Automatic marking on fabric / No differential shrinkage (puckering) or Shade variation
The technology enables one to make marking (notches / darts, marks) on to the garment components at the time of their manufacture and no additional cost is wasted in marking the cut garment components and followed in conventional garmenting processes.
Since the entire ensemble is prepared form same set of yarns and its components are produced simultaneously, the problems like shade variation, differential shrinkage or puckering are totally ruled out.
