Essentials and Operation principle of the Weft Straightener
The weft straightenter straightens the twisted weft of the woven fabrics which resulted from several processes of bleaching, washing and dyeing. It can locate and adjust at right angle to the junction between fabric’s weft andorganzine. The weft straightenter is installed before the stenter or printing M/C. It makes the fabric have the bestquality that stentering or printing after correcting the latitude.
Operation principle of the weft straightener
When transmitting, the light is reach to the lens through the fabric slit and the sensors in various angles. Then itchecks out the strongest signal in 11 angles to detect the status of fabric and rectify automatic by the correctingpart (skew and bow roller).
Control condition of the weft straightener
The machine to correct the primary weft status of various fabrics (kind of line and weft status etc.) under anycondition (such as fabric speed) needs accurate detection and good control.
Constitution of the weft straightener
When transmitting, the lens centralize the light which penetrated from the slit. Then it checks out the strongestsignal by PHOTO-CELL in various detection angle. We combine every detector together to detect the status of fabric. In the early stage, the worker should select the density of texture to use Densimeter in
Texture densitychoice Type
. And now it developed to
theFixed slit Type
that no need to select density. The other methodsare
Rotation slit type(BIANCO, Italy)
Oscillation slit type(MAHLO, Germany)
Zoomslit type(SEIREN, Japan)
etc. It can detects accurately only according to the thickness and array of silt. Thebest method is to narrow one point of the weft. The combination of the Zoom silt type that can change thicknessand the Rotation slit type that can change array is used for detecting various fabrics. The Fixed slit type is usedin Korea. The accuracy also affected by the number and angle of sensors. The range of angle are ± 13.5° and ±10°. Dividing those angles into 11 or 15 portions can work out the accuracy of running (± 15°).
