Garment manufacturing systems

Eton Systems was invented in a shirt factory in Sweden in the 1960s, Eton Shirts. More effective production lines with less manual handling between the workstations were the main goal. It still is.

It doesn’t matter if you produce jeans, suits or t-shirts. Efficiency is everything in the garment industry. Efficiency is repetition and no wasted time for transports within the production site. By utilizing an overhead conveyor system with a modular design you can eliminate time wasted and let operators focus on adding value to your product.

A hanger system has many benefits compared to other types of transportation. Bundles of clothes are synonymous with wrinkles and unergonomic lifting. Hanging transportation in the garment industry is effective and means no unnecessary time spent ironing.

There are more than 20 different ways to sew a pair of jeans. How you plan your operations is completely up to you. What we can help you with is to increase the time your operators spend sewing. By reducing manual handling, we make sure that your needles keep moving. The Eton System is always customized for your production lines.

Efficiency today is not all about mass production. Eton Systems also supports made-to-order production. Our software can track every single garment in your production. This gives you the ability to be customer-driven and produce on order.

Opta System - Modern overhead conveyor system

The first Eton System was created by Inge Davidsson in Gånghester, Sweden back more than 50 years ago. Inge had realized that when he could not hear the sewing machines they were not sewing shirts. The operators were simply spending too much time on tasks that did not add value to the end product. Inge started working on a solution to automate the handling of fabrics. Soon the first Eton System was born.

The overhead conveyor system has since evolved to new levels. Today the Eton System runs on our very own software which allows our customers to have absolute control throughout their entire production. 

The Eton Systems capabilities today include buffers, multiple working station types, modular design for quick expansions, and many more. The latest innovation is the Opta System. An Eton System designed for the Garment industry. Opta System has all the important capabilities needed by modern Garment productions.
