Effect of Feed Plate to Taker-in Distance of Carding Machine on the Quality of Cotton Card Sliver and CVC Ring-spun Yarn

Subrata Kumar Saha and Jamal Hossen

Abstract:
Background and Objective: The setting parameters of the carding machine play a vital role and a small change in the setting is sufficient to produce inferior sliver quality. This experiment aimed to reveal a comparative analysis of the quality of cotton card sliver and CVC (60:40) yarn produced at different feed plate to taker-in distance in carding machine. In contrast, the other machine parameters remained fixed. Materials and Methods: Cotton (Sankar 6) from India and polyester (Indorama) from Thailand used as the raw material to prepare cotton card sliver and 30 Ne CVC (60:40) yarn. The experimental settings from feed plate to taker-in of carding machine were 12, 16, 20, 24 and 28 thou (1 thou = 0.001 inches). The quality parameters of cotton card sliver such as unevenness, NRE%, short fiber content and the quality parameters of CVC yarn like unevenness, thin place, thick place, neps, imperfection index, strength were tested and analyzed. Results: With the increase of feed plate to taker-in distance, the cotton card sliver showed a gradual increase in unevenness and short fiber content and decrease in NRE%. The results of cotton card sliver directly reflected on the quality of individual yarn, i.e., with the increase of mentioned distance yarn had higher unevenness and lower strength. Conclusion: The feed plate to taker-in distance 12 thou shows the significant improvements in cotton card sliver and CVC yarn quality. Further increasing of feed plate to taker-in distance causes considerable deterioration of cotton card sliver and CVC yarn quality.
