Uni Clean: y Removes trash such as trash dirt. Uni Flex: y Waste products are separated.Functions of Different Machines Blow Room: There are six machines for blending. Condenser: It condenses the raw cotton into Card Mat. leaves. Uni Mix: y Fibers of different staple length are mixed here. y Fine particles of metal are detected in the metal detector. burr and any remaining seeds. opening and cleaning. Uni Flock: y The compressed mass of raw fiber is removed from the bail. . y Prepare the fiber for spinning into Yarn. Vision Shield: It is used to separate colored trash.

y As the cylinder rotates the cotton is pulled by the cylinder through the small gap under the brushes. y Slivers passed through several pairs of rollers. y A moving belt of wire brushes slowly moves concentrically above this cylinder. y This action pulls the staple lengthwise over each other.Description of different Processes Carding: y Initial process of arranging the fiber in a parallel fashion is known as carding and is done on carding machine. . disentangles the fibers and arranges them in a relatively parallel manner in the form of a thin web. thereby produces longer and thinner slivers. each advanced set of rollers. y The teasing action removes the remaining trash. Breaker Drawing: y Combines several slivers. revolve at progressively faster speed. This web is drawn through a funnel-shaped device that molds it into a rope like mass called card sliver. y Eliminate irregularities that would cause too much variation if slivers were put through single. y The lap is passed through a beater section and drawn on a rapidly revolving cylinder covered with very fine hooks or wire brushes.

. y Operations eliminate as much as 25% of the original card sliver.Lap: After carding the sliver is turned into lap form in Uni-Lap machine. y Short fibers called noils are combed out and completely separated from longer fibers. It contribute to. Finisher Drawing: The purpose of this process is to measure the sliver thickness variations and then to continuously alter the draft accordingly so that more draft is applied to thick places with the result that the sliver delivery is less irregular than it otherwise would have been. y Produces consumer goods with better quality. y y y y Better productive efficiency Fewer end-breakage in subsequent processes Less waste and Constant process conditions. Combing: y Combed sliver produces a smoother and more even yarn.Uni.

y Gain some tensile strength. Ring Frame: Roving is fed in ring frame and the output is yarn. Heat Setting: y To make the twist permanent. y Slight twist is given. . y Only the good quality products pass. Roving Draft Yarn Winding: y The yarns are further winded on cone from the ring frame. steam is passed through the yarn. Packing: Finally the yarn is ready to export or weaving.Simplex: y After several drawing operations the fiber passes through simplex process and the output is roving. y Moisture is absorbed through yarn. y The diameter is reduced.

Then fabrics are sent for compacting where compaction and further GSM change occurs. Enzyme is also applied to the fabrics to destroy the surface fiber or to convert tubular fiber into open fiber. When a lot is released from store it is sent to turning machine. Then water is removed from the fabric using compaction. Scouring is a process of further dust removing from fabrics. Before entering into the dewatering machine fabrics are entwisted to regain its normal shape and to perform further operations smoothly. In the dryer machine change of GSM and shrinkage of fabric takes place and 35% water is removed. Dyeing: In the dyeing machine the first step is scouring. . According to the planning batching section releases a batch card to send order for dyeing. Then the next step is drying. In the dewatering process fabrics are washed using only water and then sent to the chemical bath for softening. Then bleaching is done which is a process of pretreatment of fabrics using oil & wax.Explanation of Process Flow Chart: At first Grey fabrics are received from knitting section to the storage facility of Dyeing department. a) Tubular Finish b) Open Finish Tubular Finish: First step is dewatering & detwisting. In the batching section production manager creates a dyeing plan. After compaction inspection of the fabrics is carried out. To remove roughness softening is done using various chemical softeners in the chemical bath. Turning machine is used to remove dust from the fabric using a blast of air. Grey fabrics are stored in the storage according to buyer. After turning fabrics are sent to the dyeing machine. Almost 60% water is removed in this process. order. dia (width of fabric) and color. Then color and dyeing auxiliary items are applied. Finishing: There are two types of finishing process. All storage information is kept in stock card. During compaction 7% water remains in the fabric to keep strength. At last cooling and washing of the fabrics is done. Generally after dyeing process surface of the fabric becomes rough.

Brushing is a process of raising the loop of the fabric fiber. After packing dyed fabrics become ready for delivery to garments. After brushing is done. At first slitting is done which is a process of cutting fabrics through the needle line. Above processes are for normal fabrics. Capacity: Production capacity: Total production capacity is 35 tons per day. But in case of special fabrics some additional steps are carried out along with regular processes. It can be done only on fleece fabric. shearing can also be done according to buyer requirements. Suedding is a process of converting the fabric fiber into pile form. Then quality inspections are carried out and dyed fabrics are sent for packing. Storage capacity: Total storage capacity is 650 ton. . Grey heat setting gives the fabric dimensional stability and stentering adjusts dia (width of fabric). Special Finish: First step is suedding and brushing. Then normal finishing or special finishing is applied according to buyer requirements. Then stentering is done to dry the fabric and then sent for open compacting. Open compacting is a calendaring process where lengthwise strain obtained in the previous process is recovered. But actual capacity is 30 tons per day. Then Grey heat setting and stentering is done.Open Finish: At first slitting is done where fabrics are cut through the needle line to convert tubular fabric into open fabric. Importance of steam: Steam is important during finishing because it makes the fabric suitable for various processes. Shearing is a process of cutting raised loop fiber according to required size of the loop. Then stentering is done which is a process of drying wet fabric. It can be done on any type of fabric.
