Relationships with occupations

Essential skill

Use warp knitting technologies is an essential skill of the following occupations:

Knitting textile technician: Knitting textile technicians perform operations related to setting up knitting processes. They may work in weft or warp knitting factories, using digital information technology (CAD) for patterning. They work in cooperation with the physical laboratory technicians in order to ensure error free knitted fabrics. They are responsible for highest productivity rates.
Knitting machine supervisor: Knitter supervisors supervise the knitting process of a group of machines, monitoring fabric quality and knitting conditions. They inspect knitting machines after set up, start up and during production to ensure that the product being knit meets specifications and quality standards.

Optional skill

Use warp knitting technologies is optional for these occupations. This means knowing this skill may be an asset for career advancement if you are in one of these occupations.

Textile designer: Textile designers conceptualise textile products considering visual communication and functional performance.
Textile machinery technician: Textile machinery technicians set up, maintain, inspect and repair mechanical and computer-controlled machinery used in textile manufacturing such as weaving, dyeing and finishing machines.
Textile operations manager: Textile operations managers schedule orders and delivery times in order to assure the efficient flow of the production system.
Textile product developer: Textile product developers innovate and perform product design of apparel textiles, home textiles, and technical textiles (e.g. agriculture, safety, construction, medicine, mobile tech, environmental protection, sports, etc.). They apply scientific and technical principles to develop innovative textile products.
Knitting machine operator: Knitting machine operators set up, operate and monitor knitting machines. They work with specialised machinery, techniques and materials to process threads of yarn into knitted products such as clothing, carpets or rope. They maintain and repair knitting machinery and ensure operations run without problems.
Textile process controller: Textile process controllers perform textile process operations, technical functions in various aspects of design, production and quality control of textile products, and cost control for processes. They use computer aided manufacturing (CAM), and computer integrated manufacturing (CIM) tools in order to ensure conformity of entire production process to specifications. They compare and exchange individual processes with other departments (e.g cost calculation office) and initiate appropriate actions. They analyse the structure and properties of raw materials used in textiles and assist to prepare specifications for their production, analyse and interpret test data.
Glove maker: Glove makers design and manufacture technical, sport or fashion gloves.
Textile technologist: Textile technologists develop and supervise production systems for textiles.
Textile quality inspector: Textile quality inspectors ensure that the manufactured of textile products is compliant with predetermined specifications.
