  50. 50. Faults: miss-shaped laps. Remedy: •If the censity of cotton across the width of the laps is constant ,wedge shaped laps can still occur due to unequal pressure on side of the calendar r/r. •Pressure should be equal on both sides. Faults: split laps. Remedy: •If lap licking at the card persists, it can be prevented by feeding roving into the lap sheet as it is formed at the lap end or by use of lap r/r.
  51. 51. Faults: Poor cleaning efficiency. Remedy: •In the m/c cleaning efficiency is affected by grid bar to beater settings, better speeds, condition of beater blade edges and beater bars, fan speed and m/c cleanliness. •Appropriate stapes have to be taken. Faults: Neps Formation Remedy: •The paddle regulator mechanism and cone drum drive should be kept in good working order.
  52. 52. Faults: neppy web. Remedy: • The m/c made neps may be due to an excessive number of immature fibres in the cotton or to poor settings and maintenance. Which should be properly maintained. Raw materials: •Checking that the belts are correctly mixed according to micronaire value and fibre bundle strength. •Percentage of wastage should be maintained accordingly. Faults: cloudy web. Remedy: •Correct settings of back sheet. •Poor condition of wire with patches missing, damaged or rubbed will have the same results which should be maintained.
  53. 53. Faults: Irregular sliver. Remedy: •Any eccentric r/r, incorrect undergrid settings, rubber wire across the eccentric r/r settings should be on the points.
  54. 54. Faults: fine sliver. Remedy: •All drawframe stop mechanism should be regularly tested. Faults: irregular sliver. Remedy: •Checking top and bottom r/r, top spinning pressure and r/r settings and taking suitable action. •Also checking that sliver is not being reserved.
  55. 55. Faults: Neppy waste. Remedy: •Top combs and cylinders should be examined daily because damaged cylinder wire/needles and top com needles can cause flocking. Faults: Long fibers in waste. Remedy: There are a number of comber settings and timings which will cause long fibre to be found in the wastage. They include insufficient of the nippers during feeding, late closing of the nippers, wide detaching r/r settings detaching r/r turning back too late which should be properly observed.
  56. 56. Faults: Irregular sliver. Remedy: •R/R, r/r settings and drafts should be checked. Faults: Curls. Remedy: •Correct timing of nippers and detaching r/r, correct penetration of the top combs and r/r covering.
  57. 57. Faults: Slippings coils. Remedy: •Attention to finding the correct taper wheel, resetting poker bar and the builder will cure this faults. Faults: Soft bobbins. Remedy: •This faults can be prevented by using suitable change wheels. If an odd bobbin is affected this could be due to fine a fine roving or incorrect tensioning. Faults : Irregular roving. Remedy: •Simplex m/c are susceptible to this faults and source of the vibration is usually in the gearing or grafting r/r.
  58. 58. Faults: Count and hank variation Variation in hank and count should be monitored and controlled as previously specified by: •Regular daily inspection and maintained strict control lap weights, weekly meter/metre wrappings of scutcher laps, calculating variation and graphing results. •Wrapping finisher drawframe sliver every 4 hours and taking immediate action if results exceed tolerance quality control graphs to be used. •Daily wrappings of yarn for count, regularity of count, strength and twist. Assessment of yarn on blackboards. •Faults have adequately death with earlier in this section under regularity.
  59. 59. Faults: Foreign fibers: Remedy: •Operatives working in the mixing chamber must be instructed to take out any foreign fibers, string, cloth contaminated with dye or oil. •Care have to be taken when taking the tare from the bale. Faults: Twist variation: Remedy: •Too much twist reduces yarn strength and also makes the yarn brittle and liable to from snarls. Spindle to spindle variation also occurs due to differences in spindle speed as a result of driving tape slippage, misalignment of tapes and spindle bearings or inadequate lubrication which should be maintained properly.
  60. 60. The quality control in spinning has a vital consequences on the production. In the aspect of textile it is a must to make sure to fulfill the general requirement of the quality in different stages in spinning.
