In this paper, the bursting strength of knitted fabrics was optimised using the Taguchi experiment design technique, which is a recently famous approach. In the evaluations, analyses of variance (ANOVA) and the signal to noise ratio were used. 9 experiments were performed with respect to the L(9) orthogonal design for the Taguchi approach. The results show a considerable improvement in the S/N ratio as compared to the initial condition. With the Taguchi processes, we can easily determine optimum conditions for maximising the bursting strength of knitted fabrics with simple experiments.
