Exploring the Common Failures and Routine Maintenance of Jeans Overlocking Machine

Yarui Huo, Faridah binti Sahari


Purpose – This paper explores the common faults and daily maintenance methods of the overlock machine of the jeans production line. The overlock machine is one of the most widely used types of equipment in jeans manufacturing enterprises. It proposes targeted and operative solutions to enhance the regular operation of the overlock machine.

Design/methodology/approach – Based on the application of overlock machines in jeans production lines, in-depth research and analysis of overlock machines in jeans production lines, use of case study method, continuous optimization of liberation methods for common faults of overlock machines, clarification of standard operating steps and daily maintenance methods for overlock machines.

Findings – For common types of failures such as broken threads, broken needles, skipped stitches, wrong stitches, and sewing material problems in overlock machines, The author goes deep into the production line, tracks the operation of the jeans production line equipment, analyzes the causes of the failures, and propose solutions one by one.

Research limitations/implications – Overlock machine troubleshooting does not apply to other sewing equipment, and proficiency requires specialized training.

Practical implications – By sorting out faults and solutions, we can maintain a virtuous cycle of overlock machines on the production site and provide hardware for the smooth operation of the production line.

Originality/value – The method proposed in this paper guides sewers and production line team leaders to enhance overlock machine maintenance and provides technical references for all types of jeans manufacturers to maintain and repair their overlock machines.
