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 the fabric weight of big quantity.

A huge quantity contained different fabrics.

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

  • We can get GSM by fabric 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


GSM = 260
Width = 58
GLM = (260 × 58)/39.37

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 questions related to this post never hesitate to ask me.

Note: Here 39.37 is the conversion factor Meter to Inch

  1. Hello sir I m hitesh from ahmedabad i m little confused sir ..all clear epi ppi warp weft then gsm then gsm to glm ok but I don’t know in gsm 25.64 where come and glm 39.37 where come so please sir clear this me ..thank you 8154897949 it’s my what’s app number please send me answer ..

  2. Sir kya hum hum seedha he warp k glm or weft ka glm nikaal sakta hai. To sir pls ek example solve kar k bhejna. umesh 66017 per.

  3. Can you kindly tell me in GLM calculation, why are we dividing by 39.37 ?
    please explain this formula.


  5. 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

    why we multiply by 25.64

  6. Why are we dividing by 39.37, where ti comes from and same 25.64 is come from didn’t get this

  7. EPI-128 PPI-60
    Warp C- 20. Weft C -16

    GSM=EPI/Warp + PPI/Weft

    128÷20 = 6.4. 60÷16=3.75
    =6.4 + 3.75=10.15
    =10.15×25.64= 260
    So this is the step for solve
    25.64 is the Width of fabric
