Polyester Fiber and its uses

fiber Polyester is often blended with other fibers like cotton to get the best of both worlds.

Regular Twills

fabric weaving Regular twills are those that run in regular order; it is, therefore, simply necessary to know the interlacing of any one end or pick, say the first, of a regular twill in order to show the entire weave on design paper. The interlacings of the first end or pick of any regular twill are conveniently shown by writing numbers above and below a horizontal line; thus, for example,if the first end is up 2 picks, down 3, up 1, and down 2.

Power consumption in Spinning Mills

spinning yarn The cost of yarn consists of several factors such as raw material energy or power, labour, capital etc. The cost of yarn excluding raw material is termed manufacturing cost. The share of the factors in manufacturing cost changes according to the yarn properties, machine operational properties and economical situation of the spinning mill.

Bearing Structure of a Weaving Machine

fabric weaving The weaving machines are composed of two side frames in cast iron or steel, which are connected each other by cross members so as to create a firm bearing structure which can limit the vibrations and offer a good stability.

Mineral and Metallic Fibers

fiber A number of fibers exist that are derived from natural mineral sources or are manufactured from inorganic and mineral salts. These fibers are predominantly derivatives of silica (Si02) or other metal oxides.

Warp let-off and fabric take-up

fabric weaving Warp let-off system has a frequency converter, which is intended for letting off from warp beam or feeding unit. The drive is mounted either on the weaving machine or on a frame positioned behind the weaving machine. The let-off starts with a machine running signal; the speed of the let-off motor is controlled by a proximity switch mounted on the whip roller system and an internal speed memory. An alarm signal switches the weaving machine off in case of over tightened warp or any other error.

Substrate Formation

knitting spinning weaving yarn Textile substrates are formed from yarns or fibre webs by several techniques including weaving, knitting, tufting, and nonwoven formation. Composites of textile substrates are formed by bonding two fabrics together by use of an adhesive to form a bonded substrate or backed substrate or by application of cut fibres to an adhesive-coated substrate to form a flocked substrate.
