Hundreds of the world’s leading dyes houses choose the natific Color Accreditation Program (CAP) to cut out the common process of lab dip submission and first of production approval. natific randomly selects a mill within the CAP program to feature with a short interview. We also take this opportunity to welcome new and returning clients.


SAY HI TO NAN YANG KNITTING FACTORY

The mill Nan Yang Knitting Factory in Thailand got to know about natific's CAP program through their brand customer Under Armour. They instantly though that it sounded interesting and became a CAP member in 2015. Their interest has paid off already. Let’s hear what the management of Nan Yang Knitting Factory say today about the program.

natific: What are your thoughts today about the program?
Nan Yang: The CAP helps us to work more systematically and to be faster in production.

natific: What do you see as the biggest advantages and accomplishments as a CAP member?
Nan Yang: We save time and cost. Once we have uploaded the color in the ColorWarehouse system and it's within tolerance, we can go ahead to production without sending any physical submissions or waiting for customer approval.

natific: Can you tell us about some of your improvements made within the CAP program?
Nan Yang: Yes, for example the UV calibration procedure makes the spectrophotometer even more accurate and therefore our lab dip measurement is now more accurate too.

natific: We meet a lot of mills with similar issue and who do not use the correct settings for the spectrophotometer. Before we go on, I will briefly explain to the readers why UV calibration is important: Every spectrophotometer’s light source emits different amounts of UV light (how much depends on the age). White and fluorescent spectral data can only be compared from spectrophotometers that have a correctly calibrated UV filter.


    For you tech-geeks, the above picture shows a screenshot
    from a successfully executed UV calibration.



If you have any questions regarding your UV calibration, click REPLY to this email saying "UV calibration" and we will get back to you.

natific: Do you use the ColorWarehouse internally to monitor your color accuracy and precision?
Nan Yang: Yes. We have one server to keep the ColorWarehouse system and every spectrophotometer can link to the server with intranet (internal network) to measure and monitor all production.

natific: Master Digital Standards (MDS, also called qtx-files) are used within the CAP program, does this make it simpler for your dye house and if so in what way?
Nan Yang: It does makes it simpler for our dye-house. With the qtx-files we know and can match the standard in the correct way.

natific: Thank you for sharing your CAP experiences with us.
Nan Yang: Thank you!

DID YOU KNOW? – ABOUT THE CAP PROGRAM

The CAP program was developed as a collaborative project between natific and retailers and has evolved to be the most comprehensive color accreditation program globally. The program is designed to evaluate the maturity and capability of a mill, determining if a mill will be able to produce any given color to a specific tolerance. It is intended to assess, educate and help mills move towards best practice through production analysis and expert recommendations.

The ColorWarehouse is a system used within the CAP program. The system allows mills to analyze production data based on color, fabric and dyeing machine. ColorWarehouse provides mills, vendors and retailers/brands with insight into the mills daily production.
