牛仔钮的故事 — III总结

新生代型态
                随着技术的推移,五种基本形态的牛仔钮被进化了,他们不再只有双针钮、单针钮、旋转钮、胶芯钮及胶脚钮,一件成型的钮扣出现了,他不要需要透过组合几个配件组成一颗钮扣,而是直接冲压或压铸生成。
            一件成型的牛仔钮分别有单针型态及双针形态两款,他的好处是单一部件,不再需要经过装配工序,从而减少了人为或机器造成的失误,减少了损耗及生产时间。但又因为一件成型的关系,每一套模具都不可以重复使用,无形增加了模具生产时间,所以决定这款牛仔钮时,必须考须使用量这个问题,简单地说,就是:量少的时候不建议使用一件成型的牛仔钮
总结
                牛仔钮现今的5+2形态及特性,已经一一为大家介绍,那么,当一个设计师考虑要配什么款式的牛仔钮时,我个人认为,应该要考虑以下几点:
     材质
● 复杂设计的,大部份会使用锌合金,简单造型可以使用铜、铁、铝或不锈钢作为钮面。
● 使用铁时,要考虑氧化问题,而不锈钢则要考虑磁反应及不方便电镀等问题。
● 黄铜作为钮面材料时,会比较方便电镀,因为电镀药水,都是针对黄铜而设计的,若钮面是喷油的话,则可以忽略。
● 铝质染色,因为柔輭性问题,要考虑钮面装配时,会不会做造边沿爆裂。
● 锌合金电镀前会先打一层红铜作为底材,所以电镀后会给人一种“厚”的感觉,所以太细致的纹路会被覆盖。
     款式及注意事项
● 七款牛仔钮,他们都有自己的特性及长短处,你要考虑成衣的整体成本价,若这个问题可以忽略,建议你选用铜面铜底的双针钮,毕竟,他的历史最长,问题最少。
● 布料的厚度决定了牛仔钮的高度,要用高脚还是矮脚,这个时候你便要好好想清楚。
● 滴胶款式,你要做一个围边,否则在生产时会出现很多预期不到的问题。
● 抹油效果的,一定要做凹纹,若凸出的话,那生产工人会把你祖先找出来一个个地诅咒。
●  旋转钮,因为设计问题,在七款牛仔钮中,风险系数比较高,可免则免。
后话
                一连三集的牛仔钮故事,我们了解到“她”的典故及特性,也学会了什么时候应该配什么钮,虽然不是很深入,但相信亦可以给初入行的同学们带来一点点认知。毕竟,你不会因为一粒钮扣做得好而买这件衣服,但是,你会因为这粒钮扣做得差而不买这件衣服。钮扣,在一件衣服上,只是一个画龙点睛的附属品,但没有他的话,你的设计可能只是一幅经过剪裁的布疋而已。

牛仔钮的故事 — II(革命)

                前文,我们对牛仔钮的出现及进化史,有了一个初步认识,亦谈过三款最基本款金属牛仔钮的特性,再继续说故事之前,我们先说说另外一个故事。
合成纤维的出现
           合成纤维“尼龙”的出现,除了是人类的一次工业革命外,亦对牛仔钮产生了天翻地覆的变化。二次大战时,尼龙主要用在制作降落伞或其他军用品上,大战结束后,慢慢转为民用,从丝袜到衣服,从绳索到渔网,你想像得出来的生活用品,都有可能“由钢转塑”,不再是纯金属的牛仔钮,亦在这个势头上进行了一次华丽转身,加入了这一种新物质。
胶芯 / 胶脚牛仔钮(Plastic Insert
                牛仔钮的底托,不再是纯金属,人们开始利用尼龙制作,分别有纯塑料的胶脚牛仔钮及包裹一层薄金属作为外壳的胶芯牛仔钮。两款牛仔钮,其性能上是一样的,只是外观上不同。胶脚钮因为是纯塑料制作,所以他在生产上,可加入塑料的特性――可随意更改胶脚的颜色,在成衣配搭上,又多了一个缤纷夺目的选择。
                胶芯/胶脚牛仔钮,跟传统的纯金属钮最大的分别,是配套用的底钉。以前因为只有单针及双针的分别,所以底钉都是用黄铜或红铜制作的,但这种钉,郤不可用在以上两款钮中,因为,他们没法“爆炸”。
                胶芯 / 胶脚钮,必须要配套一种带倒刺的钉,才可以锁紧,所以,用铝合金制作的“螺丝钉Screw Nail”及“箭咀钉Arrow Nail“相继被发明,亦因为铝合金的正式加入,更多形态的底钉,为了达到使用上的目的,相继被发工程师设计出来,“钉”这个家族,又多了一批新成员:刀口钉,闸咀钉,双节钉……等。(闸咀钉及双节钉主要是控制爆炸位置,刀口钉主要是为了破布及破开钮底。)
变幻才是永恒(牛仔钮的另一次革命)
           黄铜,一直是牛仔钮的主要生产源材料,大家都用他生产了百多年,但是,黄铜绝不是钮扣行业的单一伙伴,很多不同行业都很需要这种珍贵的材料去生产。2006年,因为市场因素,铜价在短短半年内,上涨了三四倍,这个时候,除了汰弱留强外,行业之间,亦出现了很神奇的“进化”。
                “穷则变,变则通”。大家开始尝试在黄铜之外,寻找新物料作为生产材料,虽然“铁”是其中一个不错的选择,但因为铁的特性,容易氧化,所以由铜改铁,并不是最佳选择。有决心踏出困局的厂家,他们开始用不锈钢去生产底件,但发现原来不锈钢比铜的硬度强很多,还未完成一张订单,模具便报废,而且,环保条例一步步收紧,传统的电镀工艺亦在被逼转变工艺技术,所以,这十年间,整个行业都在寻找新的工艺技术及新的物料去制作金属钮扣,所以,现时你接触到的牛仔钮,虽然外观差不多,但他已经不再是简单的黄铜加电镀了。
                物料方面,可能包括黄铜,红铜,白铜,锌,铝,铁,尼龙,PP,塑钢……等。表面处理方面,他除了电镀外,他还有染色,喷镀,喷油,移印,丝印,热转印,水转印……等。
                十年革命,这是最黑暗的年代,这也是百花齐放的年代,祝所有钮扣行业仝仁,继续努力!

牛仔钮的故事 — I(由来)

牛仔钮的由来
牛仔钮,又名工字扣,因为牛仔钮在钉装后,钮扣跟底钉两部份组合起来,会形成一个中文的“工”字,因而得名。
要讲牛仔钮,便要先讲牛仔裤。大部份人都认为,牛仔衭,是19世纪,美国淘金热时代被发明的,但追本寻源,原来在16世纪,意大利航海家,已经利用旧帆布剪裁成裤子形状,供水手们使用,那时,他的名字还未叫”Jeans”,而是称为”Genoes”,但是,那时牛仔钮还未被发明,他还是用幼绳将前幅连系在一起的。
第一粒牛仔钮的诞生
第一粒牛仔钮,他一定是随着第一条牛仔裤而诞生的,其实,那时牛仔裤还未正式被正名,“他“,只是因利乘便,在工地比较容易找到的金属铆钉,钉装在裤头上,穿过孔眼,将前幅两片布连系在一起,亦因为这个原因,金属钮扣,便成为牛仔裤的独特标志。
牛仔钮经过了一百六十多年的发展及进化,他慢慢由双针变成单针,又由单针变成了其他形态,一步一脚印,每一次变化,都是工程师们的心血结晶。你不要看轻他的只是由几件配件组合而成,他的形状,高低,大小……都是历史的见证及先人的智慧。
双针牛仔钮(Double Prong)
双针钮,那是最原始及最野性的一款牛仔钮,他将铜片剪裁成两个小三角型,形成两把锋利的小刀,直接将布贯穿,然后再利用模具,将这两片小三角型,强行变型成“合抱”的形状,将钮扣及底钉锁紧,亦因为这个设计,他是所有牛仔钮款式中,唯一一种,不可能被扭动及旋转的款式,而且亦因为这个设计,双针牛仔钮的破坏力是所有款式中最高的,一般可达30KG以上,若材料及成本许可,可接近50KG。
那问题来了,多大的破坏力,才是标准呢?我可以告诉你,他真的没有什么国际标准,但所有品牌及工厂,都会有一套自己的标准,而最低的标准,应该不可以低于23KG。
这个数字是从何而来的?你想像一下,一名体重100KG的胖子,在没有系腰带的情况下,做了一个下蹲的动作,那时,裤头所产行的强行拉扯力,究竟有多大?而23KG公斤这个标准,便是美国经过无数次测试所得的结果。
单针牛仔钮(Single Prong)
因为工艺技术的成熟,单针牛仔钮被发明出来,主要原因是因为双针破布时,间中会对布本身造成破坏,所以将底钉改良成单柱状,直接穿透布料,再利用模具结构,将钉头变形,锁紧单针壳内的柱,这个动作,行内人俗称他为“爆炸”或“爆破”。所以,单针牛仔钮,是所有牛仔钮中,工艺技术最高的一款牛仔钮,亦是现今最常用的牛仔钮款式之一。
旋转型牛仔钮(Swirl Prong)
施转型牛仔钮,钮扣本身,由上下两部份组合而成,两者连结,郤没有锁紧,从而做到随时旋转的效果。在工艺技术的层面上,他只是改良了单针的结构,将爆炸部份转移至下部配件中而已。
预告:牛仔钮的故事,会分三部份发表,下期,会跟大家说说其余几款牛仔钮“被发明”的有趣故事。

Metal eyelet for garments

Eyelet (also called grommet) we manufacture is made from the brass material which is targeted to applying to the fashion industry. Eyelets are used to reinforce holes in leather, cloth, canvas and other fabrics. Laces, ribbons or cords are threaded through the eyelets. The hole you make with a Hole Punch Plier is called the eyes, and you need a hand press machine or kick press machine to apply the grommets on fabric with the corresponding die sets we supply. For functionality, eyelets are basically used to strengthen holes. Most usually they are seen in shoes and hoodies. Eyelets can be also used for the drawstring waistbands and in bags or to lace up dress backs. More than that, eyelets sometimes are used purely decoratively for crafting or any fashion items. There are all common size options with us which are designed and made for garments, bags and accessories. In order to match up with everything you do, not only we have different styles for you, but also up to 32 selected plating colour options for your choices. We also do spray-painting for extending our colour options to customization.

I want to die with my blue jeans on

“I want to die with my blue jeans on” – from <The Philosophy of Andy Warhol> you can see the position of jeans is extremely high. Everyone needs a pair of jeans, no matter you are in low life or in high society.

dot-gas_jeans_button

It is said that the first jeans were from Levi’s. The founder of Levi’s – Levi Strauss was one of them who was crazy for gold-rush in the middle of 19th century. However, he didn’t follow the crowd to make the first bucket of gold from gold digging in San Francisco but sold them durable denim trousers instead. The jeans became the token of overall at that time. The first jean Levi’s 501 came out, implying that denim realm began, which has 500 years of history. However, the jeans button made undeniable contributions for the great sensation of Jeans in the world. We can even consider that first denim cloth wasn’t the mark of jeans, the denim with the metal button made the first jeans.
When we mention jeans buttons, it relates to tack button, rivet, fly-button. Generally speaking, jeans buttons are more talking about the tack buttons, Whereas, the smaller size of tack buttons are actually the fly-buttons. Many people may not realise it, but button-fly jeans have been around for far longer than jeans that zip up. Button-fly jeans are still incredibly popular in spite of zippers are easier to use, quicker and less visible. I’ve sum up some reasons for it. One of the benefits of button-fly jeans may be durability. The five buttons that are traditionally used on these types of jeans are generally less likely to break or come apart than zippers might. People who wear jeans that button up also do not usually have to worry as much about their fly opening unexpectedly, which is a problem with zip jeans that many people find embarrassing. There’s the question of sex appeal. Zip flies only have one layer of fabric over them while fly-buttons require two—just enough volume to draw some seemingly unsolicited attention to your mid section. That said, two layers of fabric can also appear dishevelled and warp into funny, immutable bumps if not handled correctly. But at least with the fly-buttons, any attention paid to your crotch won’t involve someone politely reminding you to XYZ.
To take the comprehensive approach to the development of Jeans, the constantly prevalent styles are not many. How can your jeans stand in the spotlight among thousands of brands in today’s markets, besides the good quality of denim and wash-out jeans, the details decide merits and demerits of jeans? It includes tack buttons, rivets, fly-buttons, leather patches, care labels…etc. Nowadays, the metal buttons on jeans are not only functional but also a decoration and design to your jeans. Take “Tough”- famous brand from H.K. as an example, they are very good at using hardware on jeans to feature their concept on jeans, unique military style. But the usage and requirements of jeans buttons are the trauma for most Jeans companies. Because the material of jeans buttons, the properties of different kinds of materials, the oxidising degree of jeans buttons, the feeling for the appearance of jeans buttons after applying and so on are the profound knowledge for each. In a word, the easiest way to identify the jeans quality and attitude is checking the jeans buttons.

brass_button_stampling_process冲压,主要是对不同规格的铜带进行冲压,不同产品有不同的冲压工艺和形成过程,主要分为钮面冲压、拉伸冲压和杂件三大类。而钮面冲压和拉伸冲压是一个铜质扣钮诞生的最初工艺,是铜质钮扣诞生的第一步,最常规,同时也是最关键的部分。
jeans_button_tack_cap_stampling钮面冲压:就是各种常规钮扣的面件冲压工艺,钮面只需剪口后压型,一次成型,一步到位。钮面冲压一般是“一出一”到“一出三”,即一台机器装1~3个剪口模和1~3个压型模,一次压型出来1~3个钮面。“一出二”、“一出三”在效率上优于“一出一”,但在稳定性上“一出一”更具有优势,根据具体产品的生产工艺和要求,选择不同的冲压方式,保障产量的同时,兼顾冲压产品质量的稳定性。
snap_button_progressive_stampling拉伸冲压:凡是无法一步到位,需要多个拉伸环节才能成形的钮面或底壳,往往需要通过拉伸工艺来达到目的。在拉伸的过程中,每一个拉伸模都是在一步步的拉伸成形,一个拉伸模即为一个拉伸变化的过程,例如常见的单针/双针底壳、配胶芯的底壳,以及弹弓、连底工字钮等,都是在经过一次次拉伸后,渐渐成型的。有些甚至需要11~12次的拉伸,2~3台机器同时运作,最终才能成形、再压型、剪口,成为一个黑胚产品。拉伸冲压一般是“一出一”和“一出二”两种冲压模式,“一出一”适用范围更广,“一出二”效率更高,在生产上针对不同产品,制定合理的生产安排。
D-ring_forming_process杂件:杂件多为D字扣、葫芦扣、又字夹、裤扣、尾夹等的生产。
冲压用的大型机器都相对稳定,在冲压不同产品时需更换不同的模具,需要更换的模具越多,其中产生的人工成本也就越多,消耗的时间也就越长。由于拉伸使用的模具较多,所以在人工和耗时等方面,钮面冲压更省更快。冲压机器由专业人员在每次使用机器之前进行质检和调试,并在冲压过程中对冲压的产品进行抽检。由于大型机器相对稳定,所以机器运作时,由看机人员“一人多机”对监管机器冲压的产品进行数量、质量的双重监管,保证生产的高效。大型机器在冲压时是一个精细化的过程,特别是在压型的时候,一粒杂质、一颗水珠……都能影响到产品外观的成型,所以机器的清洁及车间的环境也是至关重要的一部分。
DOT-GAS针对冲压机器的相对稳定性,在冲压产品之前采取先出黑胚样板效果,并装配黑胚,最终确认黑胚产品没问题之后,再开始冲压产品大货,以此来在源头上杜绝隐患。在冲压过程中,我们有专业QC在冲压期间不定时的抽检产品质量,监管产品质量的稳定性,把克胚生产的质量放在第一位,以免在后期发现问题时,造成更多的损失。

装配一般分为三种:全自动装配、半自动装配、人工装配。

jeans_button_auto_assembly

全自动冧口机:全自动冧口机主要是针对铜质材料钮扣产品的冧合。(1)底座稳固。四脚式铁架底座,安全牢固,提高机体平衡性。(2)震动送料。数值调控送料的震动强度,科学稳定,减少卡料。(3)智能监测。在卡料、无料时除了手闸,还有智能监测器。它能第一时间自动停机,及时止损,降低损耗,有效保障出品率。(4)数字调振幅。数字调控震动幅度,合理控制冧合送料速度,不堵料,降低产品磨损程度。(5)手动调压。人工调试冧合力并检测,一步到位,能精准确保每一粒钮扣在冧合过程中的冧合压力保持一致,使出品具有优良的稳定性。看机人员使用全自动冧口机时,一般采用“一人多机”看管模式,每人平均看管2-3台冧口机,及时添料,并在不同机器之间不间断的巡逻式监管及抽检。

alloy_tack_button_semi-auto_assembly

半自动冧口机:半自动冧口机是专门针对合金钮扣而采用的“一人一机”工作模式,平均每小时产量约3000~4000pcs,由人工手动摆放合金钮面(面件)后,冧口机自动送料(底件)、冧合,最终成型。半自动冧口机具有全自动冧口机底座稳固、数字调振幅和手动调压的相同点,不同之处在于半自动冧口机没有智能监控,只有手闸,可手动在冧合过程中暂停运行,调整卡料、添加物料等。同时“一人一机”操作模式占用较多的人工成本,但在监管方面比“一人多机”更方便,止损更及时。另外,机器冧合过程中,人工持续摆放面件,无法兼顾产品冧合质量的抽检。

shank_button_manual_assembly

全人工冧口:全人工冧口是完全由装配人员摆放及手动操作冧合机器的生产方式,每一粒钮扣都出自装配人员之手,平均每小时产量约2000~3000pcs。(1)机体固定。冧合机器固定,装配人员手动冧合受力时稳固。(2)冧合前抽检。装配人员在摆放面件、底件的同时检查产品,及时剔除不良品,降低不良品概率,将损耗也进一步减少。(3)冧合过程中质检。装配人员每冧合一粒钮扣都是在做质检,发现冧合有问题的、冧合坏的,即刻挑出。全人工冧口在质量监控方面优于全自动冧口机和半自动冧口机,但在产量上处于劣势,人工成本高。另外,由于是手动操作冧合,所以产品的冧合力相对来说并不稳定,同批产品在外观上存在细微差异。
DOT-GAS根据不同订单、不同订单量、不同客户需求等来制定科学的装配方案并决定最终装配方式。没有最好的装配方式,只有最合适的装配方式。DOT-GAS致力于提供更好的解决方案,使产品在装配过程中品质更加稳定。例如,在全人工装配上我们提供专用模的服务,来提高产品质量,并增强人工冧合过程中的稳定性,同时有效控制不良品率。不仅如此,我们还在全自动冧合模式中,在品质监控及出品质量方面提供“专人专机”服务,严格把关,专人QC,精选每一粒钮扣,把出品的品质放在第一位。

Laurel wreath jeans shank button

Laurel – A Mediterranean evergreen tree (Laurus nobilis) having aromatic, simple leaves and small blackish berries. The Romans see it as wisdom, defence and the symbol of peace. A wreath of laurel conferred a mark of honour in ancient times upon poets, heroes, and victors in athletic contests. The Laurel pattern stands for honour and glory won for great achievement.

Plastic seal tag, hang tag seal, garment tag fastener, string loop lock

plastic seal tagThe plastic seal tag, as one of the essential part in garments and accessories, is playing the role of the junction between hang tag and product. The pre-knotted hang tag strings which are made of cotton, hemp or other kinds of the composition are considered seal tags in old days. However, more and more people were dissatisfied with the limitation of this simple “seals”, they are not efficient enough.
