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
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.
