Visible needle holes – Case #058

January 11, 2013


“A picture is worth a thousand words”. Practical solutions to problems encountered in the manufacturing process that demonstrate how we assist our customers’ factories to produce Right from the Start TM.

Problem: visible needle holes on vamps and counters after lasting caused by excessive stretching of the uppers during the lasting operation.

Impactiva solution: we got the factory to use a backer on the vamps and counters before stitching in order to avoid the excessive stretching of the upper during the lasting operation. This prevented visible needle holes.
