Essentials and Operation principle of the Weft Straightener Essentials

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 fabrics weft and organzine. The weft straightenter is installed before the stenter or printing M/C. It makes the fabric have the best quality 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 it checks out the strongest signal in 11 angles to detect the status of fabric and rectify automatic by the correcting part (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 any condition (such as fabric speed) needs accurate detection and good control.

Constitution of the weft straightener

1. Detection
When transmitting, the lens centralize the light which penetrated from the slit. Then it checks out the strongest signal 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 density choice Type. And now it developed to the Fixed slit Type that no need to select density. The other methods are Rotation slit type (BIANCO, Italy), Oscillation slit type (MAHLO, Germany), Densimeter type and Zoom slit type (SEIREN, Japan) etc. It can detects accurately only according to the thickness and array of silt. The best method is to narrow one point of the weft. The combination of the Zoom silt type that can change thickness and the Rotation slit type that can change array is used for detecting various fabrics. The Fixed slit type is used in 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).

2. Controller
According to the light that penetrated from the silt, we adjust the detection properly. The weft straightener acquires the status of fabric and control the rectifying part by the signal that comes from detection to straighten both skewed & bowed weft status. Because the fabric have slickness and retractility, so it cant rectify accurately according to detection angle just by rectifying part. It can rectify the fabric accurately just by controlling the rectificatory periods (start the periods of rectifying part by working speed), rectifying capacity (according to the change of angle), position, sensor, angle of detection and the comparison of rectifying.

3. Rectifying Part
It is constitutive of skew roller and bow roller that rectify the skewed and bowed distortion. The maximum correcting capability is decided by the number of rollers, movement and the bow of roller. On the stage, the maximum skew correcting of weft straightener is 34 percent of the breadth, and the maximum bow correcting is 9 to 11 percent.

4. Tension adjust device

The bow roller is driven according to M/C speed. It can avoid the skewed and bowed weft status and wrinkling badly. It is used for detecting the fabric that is sensitive to tension(such as knitting and spandex etc.).

Comparison of Weft-Straightener
1. Detection
Light Penetration & Reflection Type Have a constant the thickness and angle of slit. Have suitable thickness of slit, Read skew and bow of majority fabric

Light Penetration & Reflection Type Oscillation Slit Type

Detecting variety of angles by a sensor. It can read the fixed angle and the distance between angles. Have the same advantage of MAHLO. Be different in time and durability Select the thickness of Silt according to density of the fabric. It can only read the fixed angle.

- Correcting accurately when the angle is small. - Correcting one side of fabric to a certain angle quickly.

3. Tension controller and other devices

Tension controller drives the bow roller to control tension by detecting the revolutions of roller under the detection. There have two bow rollers. You can select the mode of two bow rollers driving together, only one driving or used none. MAHLO uses no bow roller in most cases. YESS drives one bow roller only. And others drive two bow rollers. The modes of installing are fixed with setscrew and leveled with sole screw. The former is used in Europe. The latter is used in Korea & Japan. The DAEIL Machines adds the guide roller to cushion attack.

DAEIL Weft-Straightener

A good weft straightener is a machine that can straighten the twisted weft of different fabrics under different process conditions (just as M/C speed etc.)
We hope that our weft straightenter can straighten the twisted weft of all kinds of fabrics. The weft straightenter on the stage detect the weft status by penetration or reflection. The fabric will be changed because of the weave, sort of line (changed when boiling), machine speed and even variety of chemicals. So you should select the weft straightener which can automatically straighten more fabrics under different process conditions at first. Then you compare the price, trouble rate and after sales service, etc. Now we compare the weft straightener of DAEIL with others as follows :

1. Controller : Compacted control circuit with powerful micro-computer and PLD.

- Easy operation by touch screen control - Minimized failure rate - Manual bow roller available : A function not to operate for a bow roller by detected wrinkle in fabric. - Compatible with future functions developed : No change in hardware required by processing within a program.

2. TWILL function : Special used for twill fabrics (Good for combs teeth pattern).
- For frequent malfunctions, it reduces an error rate by attaching a device to distinguish cross angle with simultaneous detection of cross angle and weft angle.

3. Skew Processing : A function to turn wefts in the specific state.

- Good for any defect caused by differences in both Stenter chain or for fabrics which require for wefts to be turned.

4. Tension control : 20% of speed change

- To keep fixed tensile strength by controlling bow roll according to speed.

5. Reflection & Penetration Type detector

- For fabrics hard to transmit light, for fabrics with different sides (Optional Item)

6. Safety structure against outside shock

- The weft straightener is installed in the middle of the connecting part between stenter and mangle. It has the safety structure that a retrieval roll to deliver shock down.

7. Automatic reset for malfunctions

- A function to operate again by turning a rectifying unit to the center with wrong angle calculated.

The Weft Straightener will be different in function with different fabric and different engineering.
