UNMANNED KNITTING PLANTS - DEVELOPING A PROTOTYPE AND PRESCRIBING OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS

Objective


Innovative pneumatic and mechanical devices have been developed to achieve an automatic loading capability of a computer numerical control (CNC), V-bed knitting machine.

The automatic system has been developed to load yarn to machine feeders from cones and to deal with yarn thread breakages, cone runouts and programmed cone changes with automatic splicing. An automatic unloading system for discrete knitted pieces together with a takeaway conveying device has been developed. A fault detection system has also been developed which can recognise, as they happen, knitting faults such as dropped stitches and tension variations, locate them and cause the knitting machine to stop.
