Customer Success Case: TEXWINCA Knitted Fabric Factory

TEXWINCA is a large-scale knitted fabric factory, invested in HongKong in 1992, with an annual production value of nearly $700 million. TEXWINCA needs to do a lot of fabric testing every day, which requires a lot of manual operation, of which the shrinkage rate test is more labor-intensive, and the testing process is complicated, what’s worse, the more the test samples, the more error there is. Therefore, TEXWINCA hopes to have a faster and better solution for shrinkage rate testing.

We provide tailored professional advice to address customers’ problems and needs.


ChiuVention Market Researchers visited TEXWINCA to learn about the conventional shrinkage testing process, in which the worker who measures the data needs to use a ruler to measure the distance between the marked dots before and after the fabric is washed and to calculate the difference between the washings.


When there is a large number of test samples, this work takes too much time and the numerical errors can occur very frequently. Based on this, ChiuVention realized there was a great market prospect, and it is meaningful to create a special instrument to measure the shrinkage rate. After more than a year of contact, ChiuVention delivered a satisfactory testing solution – SmartShrink Shrinkage Rate Tester.
