Yarn breakages on rapier weaving machine
Most of the weavers today are aware of the factors influencing the breakage rate, although the relative importance contributing to these factors is not generally understood, opine PV Kadole, Manjunath Burji and MM Makandar. The grey yarn as obtained from the spinning process has to undergo various processes such as winding, warping, sizing and weaving before it is converted into fabric.
Recent developments in textile filtration
Filtration processes are usually categorised as dry filtration (air/gas filtration) and wet filtration (liquid filtration), say Dr Senthilkumar P and Punitha V. Filtration is the process of separating one material which is dispersed in other material using porous structure. The porous structure is obtained using textile fabric of woven, knitted or nonwoven. Among these various structure fabric, nonwoven fabric plays major role in filtration in spite of their wide range of thickness and porosity and pore size distribution.

KARL MAYER Technische Textilien GmbH is a globally successful textile machinery manufacturer, which was formed by merging KARL MAYER Malimo with KARL MAYER LIBA – combining many years of know-how between them. This innovative, pioneering company supplies highly efficient bi- and multiaxial warp knitting machines for producing dry, non-crimp fabrics (NCFs) for the composites sector, as well as fibre spreading machines for the production of unidirectional fibre tapes made from a wide range of technical filament yarns.
Compressed air dryers
Compressed air dryers are a must for pneumatic controlled tools and systems. If the compressed air is not dry there will be corrosion in compressed air pipeline, pneumatic tools and systems which will lead to their malfunctioning. In most cases refrigeration dryer are suitable for 40°C - 45°C ambient temperature. A major problem in compressed air systems is the presence of water, dust particles, oil (oils particles are introduced by lubricated air compressors) and solid contaminants, which can adversely affect air quality.
