Faults in Winding

Some of the common winding faults are as follows:-

Fault Description
Yarn breakage The main causes are :
  • Improper slub catcher setting.
  • Incorrect tension level.
  • Improper winding speed.
Stitch The main causes of formation of stitch :
  • Excessive spindle speed.
  • Worn out spindle speed.
  • Large tension variation during winding.
  • Defective release of Yam after knotting.
  • Improper alignment of tension bracket.
  • Worn out or damaged grooves in the drum
  • Improper setting of travers restricters.
Patterns or Ribbons The main causes of fonnation of patterns are
  • Defunct antipatterning motion.
  • Incorrectly set antipatterning motion.
  • Cone or chese loose filting on winding spindle.
Entanglements The main causes are:
  • Repeated knotter fibre
  • Strong suction pressure
