Six Myths About Tailwind Systems…


logo1- Tailwind is not about tags.  Only a fraction of Tailwind clients use the “old-fashioned” tagging and assembly system.  Although there is, indeed, a very popular and well know Tailwind “tagging” system, not all Tailwind Systems users are using tags.  Every plant benefits from the Tailwind System

2- Tailwind is of no use if you are using Barcodes.  FALSE!!!  Plant owners and managers that use bar codes, Metal Progetti, assisted assembly and other high-tech methods are jumping onto the Tailwind bandwagon every day!  Why?  Because Tailwind is a management system that includes the best reporting in the industry, the best management tools and the best management system ever devised.  In fact, by the end of 2017, it is expected that there will be more Tailwind clients using barcodes and automated assembly than the Tailwind Assembly system.  This is because barcode plants are the fastest growing segment of the market and they need to be efficient too!

How to raise your labor cost without really trying.

It seems that this should be a column that I write in the middle of the slow season.  But you are reading this in the middle of the busiest time of year.  This is the time that you’ve looked forward to all year.  Now is when you have the most amount of cash left over at the end of the bills.  But let’s try to learn some lessons from this busy time and perhaps that will translate into real cash savings come the dog days of summer.

Let’s fast-forward into the future, to the summer of 2018.

PONY – Clean Show 2017



Pony has reworked their Eagle shirt press and have aptly renamed it Eagle 2.0.  The Italian gentleman that demonstrated it for me at the show speaks clear English, so that video can work as a training video.

PONY has also introduced the DB-360.  Both of these units are feature-packed and well worth a look.  Check out the movies.

Itsumi – Clean Show 2017


Itsumi has continued to improve their unique semi-circle double buck.  This machine is fun to operate and is a double buck that may fit in places where you couldn’t fit another style of double buck.  Couple this with their new quad collar machine and you really got something.  Most notable is Itsumi’s unique back pull-down.  When you activate it, the hold-down pulls down on the shirt and then a vacuum holds it down.  The back hold pulls back so there is no chance of a leave-off mark or any kind of imprint.  This is nice!
