RESEARCH FOR A MATHEMATICAL AND RULE BASED SYSTEM WICH OPTIMIZES A COTTON MIXTURE BASED ON THE INTERDEPENDENCE OF SIGNIFICANT FIBRE PROPERTIES,PROCESS PARAMETERS,YARN PROPERTIES AND SPINNING MACHINERY PERFORMANCES

Objective

Development of a mathematical system to predict which spinning machinery performances and final yarn characteristics can be expected (regularity, tensile strength, etc.) once the characteristics of the blend of cotton are known (length and irregularity of the fibres, tensile strength, trash, micronaire, maturity, etc.).

This is why it is necessary :

- to define all parameters of the raw materials and their interactions which can influence the final result;

- to define the best blend and manufacturing process in order to obtain the best cleaning and regularity of the raw material.
A mathematical system has been developed to predict which spinning machinery performances and final yarn characteristics can be expected (regularity, tensile strength, etc) once the characteristics of the blend of cotton are known (length and irregularity of the fibres, tensile strength, trash, micronaire, maturity, etc).
It is necessary to define the opening line, study the settings and the speed of the whole spinning equipment. In order to reach these mathematical formulas and rules it is necessary to create a data and knowledge base.

This system allows the use of cheaper cotton (+/- 10 %), increases flexibility and productivity (+/- 10 %), improves the stability of spinning and yarn quality and follows the spinning process in a better way.
