Abstract

Organic cotton has become a popular product in recent years due to its environmental friendliness. Different from

conventional cotton, the planting of organic cotton does not use pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizer, which can cause

degradation in soil fertility, water and natural equilibrium. Organic cotton crop rotation can build strong soil, retain water

more efficiently, maintain a balance between pests and their natural predators, and control weed growth. This study

presented a yarn spinning process using organic cotton as the raw material. An open-end rotor spinning machine was

used in the spinning process. To analyze the processing parameters affecting yarn qualities, the Taguchi method and

response surface methodology were used to design an orthogonal array experiment and to find the relationship between

controllable input parameters (i.e. feed speed, winding speed, and rotor speed) and output qualities (i.e. strength,

unevenness, imperfection indicator/km, and hairiness). To find the optimal parameter combination, two popular opti-

mization methods, particle swarm optimization and genetic algorithm, were used. The results showed that with optimal

parameters (0.345 m/min, 34.717 m/min, 82,599 rpm for feed speed, winding speed, and rotor speed, respectively), the

proposed method can find optimum values in all observed qualities. A confirmation experiment was conducted to

validate the results.

During the 1960s, open-end spinning was one of the

new methods proposed to overcome speed and power

consumption problems in the ring spinning method for

yarn spinning technology. This method separates yarn

twisting action and winding action, and rotates the

package winding action at the relatively low winding

speed.

In the open-end spinning, various methods have

been invented, which can be classiﬁed into ﬁve

groups: vortex assembly, axial assembly, discontinuous

assembly, friction spinning and rotor spinning. This

study used the rotor spinning method, as shown in

Figure 1.2 Some studies have analyzed and optimized

the behavior of rotor spinning method related to the

quality of resulted yarn. Yang3 et al. used a linear
