Knit fabrics are produced from circular knitting machines or flat bed knitting machines. Circular knitting machines are two types, they are single jersey or double jersey knitting machines. These two type’s machine has different cam arrangement settings, which is responsible for design production.
How To Increase Production In Knitting Floor?
Anyhow, the production of knit fabrics depends on various factors. By developing the following factors we can increase the production of knit fabrics.
Production per hour depends on the speed of the machine. Higher the machine rpm, the faster the movement of the needle which increases the production. But we should make sure that this higher speed will not impose excess tension on the yarn. Excess tension on yarn can increase the breakage of yarn which is not desired.
Number of Feeder:
If the number of feeders increases in the circumference of the cylinder, then the number of courses will be increased one revolution at a time. Which is responsible for increasing production.
Machine gauges also affect the production of knit fabric. It also vary depending on the type of machine and Manufacturers’ Company. A higher gauge machine gives higher production.
Automation System of Knitting Machine:
By imposing automation on the machine, production can be increased. Following automation can be added for higher production.
- Firstly, quick starting and stopping for effective driving system.
- Secondly, automatic machine lubrication system for smooth operation.
- Lastly, photo electric fabric fault detector.
By imposing other developments: Following development can increase production.
- Creel feeding system can increase the production.
- Applying yarn supply through plastic tube that eliminates the possibilities of yarn damage.
- By using yarn feed control device.
In modern times different advanced facilities are added to the machine features, which will facilities more production.
