The students were driven to the industrial site through vans. Here the students were shown the procedures of production. The students observed the production procedure controlled by the employees in the control room. The students were explained about the various processes by which they use the raw materials like PTA, Ethylene Glycol to produce Polyester chips which is then drawn into Yarns and from the yarns a variety of fabrics are manufactures.
The second stop in the Industrial visit was the PYF - 4G PLANT. The students were allowed to feel the tensile strength and texture of yarn. The last stop was the Weaving to Production industry, the students observed the machines operations. An employee of the Weaving division operated the machine to demonstrate conversion of Yarn to fabric.
