How to Measure Fabric weight of Big quantity

To know the fabric’s weight

For measuring fabric weight in large quantity we can follow the following way which now I am going to present for you. Wish it will be helpful for you who are related to textile. After reading this article you will have a proper idea of how to measure fabric weight of big quantity.

Huge quantity contained different fabric.

Usually, we measure GSM (Gram per square meter) by GSM cutter.

• We can get GSM by fabrics construction also. Let’s try to get GSM of the following construction:

(20 × 16/128 × 60) twill.

We know,

 GSM = {(EPI/Warp count) + (PPI/ Weft count)} × 25.64 Here ,    EPI = 128 PPI = 60 Warp count = 20 Weft count = 16

So GSM will be = {(128/20) + (60/ 16)} × 25.64

=260 GSM

• Then you can get GLM (Grams per linear meter) via GSM.
 GLM = ( GSM × fabric width)/39.37 When GSM = 260 Width = 58 GLM = (260 × 58)/39.37 =383

So 500-meter fabrics total weight = GLM × Fabric quantity.

 = (383 × 500 m) (here fabric quantity = 500m) =191500 grams =191500/1000 Kg. =191.5 kg.

So, this is the way how we can measure fabric weight by the known GSM of this fabric. If you have any question related this post never hesitate to ask me.
