gearing calculation of loom

Introduction: Shedding is the first primary motion of the loom motions. Dividing of warp threads into two parts for insertion of weft thread is called shed, and the mechanism to form shed is called shedding. There are two types of shedding – 1) Positive shedding and 2) Negative shedding. Basic shedding mechanisms are Paddle/treadle, Tappet, … Read more

Sizing Machine Production Calculation Formula in Weaving

Sizing Machine Production Calculation

Introduction The process of applying a protective adhesive (PVC, CMC, PVA etc.) coating upon the yarn (warp) surface is called sizing. This is the most important operation to attain maximum weaving efficiency specially for blended and filament yarns. Due to sizing increases elasticity of yarn, yarn strength, smoothness, weight of the yarn and frictional resistance … Read more
