Abstract: A theoretical model has been developed for describing the spreading process in a cutting room. Verification work for this model is described in this study, the aim of which was to determine whether the model could accurately calculate the total spreading losses in a real situation. The results presented in this paper address the difference in total fabric loss during spreading that was obtained between actual performance and theoretical calculation. Through a further investigation, the difference is highly negatively correlated with the number of completed plies lying on the cutting table, and there is no treatment of the number of turns in the theoretical model when V0 is equal to zero. Ultimately, the equation for calculating the total fabric loss by the theoretical model is refined to improve its precision. The result of this refinement is better than the original theoretical performance.
