If the batches of components are repeated from time to time, this method of manufacture is called repetitive batch production. General purpose rather than special purpose machines are used and these are usually grouped according to process. 29 Layout for batch production (FMS cell). Nowadays, the machines are often arranged to form flexible manufacturing cells in which the machines may be computer numerically controlled (CNC) and linked with a robot to load and unload them as shown in Fig. 29. To change the product, the computers are reprogrammed.
Further, although strong, they tend to fray when subject to abrasive wear. Frequently textiles are made from mixtures of cotton or wool with synthetic fibres as these are more pleasant when worn next to the skin.
