## 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.

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 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 questions related to this post never hesitate to ask me.

Note: Here 39.37 is the conversion factor Meter to Inch

Let me clear … where come from 25.64

3. Shambhu Chauhan says:

Sir i want to know how to find denier of yarn from gsm of woven fabric.

4. (20 × 16+70D/128 × 60)58″ twill.plz clear this.

5. jeeva says:

Dear Sir, We refer your Glm .It is ok but Gsm our formula not match

6. I think ours is ok

7. Rahul says:

What is 25.64 and where it comes from

8. 25.64 is a part of formula

9. Ravinder says:

25.64 where it come

10. Chayon Banerjee says:

Is 25. 64 constant to calculate GLM?

11. Yes it is Constant

12. Pravik Kumar says:

The fabric width used in the example is in inches or centimeters?

13. Md. kamrul Hasan Mithu says:

Easy one is;
GSM X Fabric Width X 0.0254
260 X 58 X 0.0254
= 383

14. Thanks for sharing easy solution

15. Hitesh baraiya says:

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 ..

16. Umesh Kumar says:

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 @gmail.com per.

17. Prashant says:

how to convert glm to count construction?

18. Ahsan Saleem says:

Can you kindly tell me in GLM calculation, why are we dividing by 39.37 ?

19. BHARAT PRAJAPATI says:

HOW TO CALCULATE GLM AND GSM.
WITH EXAMPLE OF GSM AND GLM AND FORMULA OF GSM AND GLM

20. karthikeyan says:

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

21. Deepak Gahlot says:

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

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

23. Abir Ahmed Khan says:

About 39.37: It’s inchs to meter conversion constant.

24. Thanks for your valuable comment
