Procedure of Bale management | Function of the Blow room

Procedure of Bale management:

    1. Sample collection of each bale.
    2. Given ID No. on individual bale and sample.
    3. Conditioning the sample for standard MR%.
    4. Sample test by HVI (High Volume Instrument).
    5. Input data in BIAS (Bale Inventory and Analysis System).
    6. Prepared mixing plan.
    7. Prepared lay down plan.

Function of the Blow room: 

The most function of the blow room are given blow-

         Opening the fibers.
  Cleaning the fibers.
  Dust removing from fibers.
  Blending of different fibers.
  Mixing of fibers.
  To remove contamination. Here contamination means color fiber.
  To remove heavy & foreign materials.

Ring | Automatic Cone Winding | Concept of Bale Management | Necessity of bale management


The end-product of ring department is yarn. Yarn is the continuous strand of fibers, which has received its final shape. It may be finer (wt/yard is less) or coarser (wt/yard is more) as per requirement of customer. However it is many times lighter in wt/yard as compared to that of roving from which it is produced.

The machine which produces yarn takes roving and reduces it by roller drawing, twisting as needed and winds the products accurately in a special form of bobbin for further use in auto cone.

 Automatic Cone Winding:

The completion of package from yarn to cone is done in this department. The yarn produced at the ring frame is obtained on a ring bobbin, which is not the final shape to present the yarn to the customer. Therefore it is essential to present the yarn to the customer in a reasonable package which is usually a cone produced on a winding machine. This cone
Contains the yarn in weight usually ranging from 2 lbs to 6 lbs. Yarn bag is commonly understood of weight of 100 lbs

Concept of Bale Management:

Bale management is the process of inventory control and selection of bale according to  fibre properties and also to mix fibre homogeneously to get consistent production and  quality of yarn, which is extremely important for production of yarn. For bale management, all of the bale are tested and almost similar category are arrange for homogeneously mixing.

Necessity of bale management:

Bale management very essential for the following objects-
By bale management consistency yarn quality found.
  A means of avoiding quality jumps.
  Cost saving by bale management.

Mixing | Blow Room | Carding


Mixing is define in which cotton bales are brought from go down and blending is performed in different ratios as per requirement. It is also called mixing and blending. A mixing of cotton blend is usually prepared keeping in view the required parameters of yarn being manufactured on the basis of cotton characteristics. Another important job performed in this department to condition the cotton bale by lay down before opening and cleaning.

Blow Room:

The main function of this department is to open and clean the cotton by beaters, condensers, air current, conveyor belts, hoppers etc. The impurities dropped under blow room machinery at different steps are called dropping-II and it varies in quantity or %age depending upon the cleaning efficiency and cotton density processed at that spot.
The end product of blow room is lap. It is made on Scutcher. It is a roll of uniform sheet of cleaned cotton wrapped after calendaring with sufficient pressure.
There is also another system in which opened and cleaned cotton is directly fed to the carding section from blow room, without lap formation. This system is called chute feed system.


Carding may be defined as the reduction of an entangled mass of fibre to a filmy web by working them between two closely spaced, relatively moving surface clothed with sharp wire points.

Combing | Drawing | Roving


Before combing the material, a number of slivers are doubled and drafted in a parallel position to form a ribbon lap as a feeding material on the combing machine. The ribbon lap is then processed on the comber for the removal of short fibers (noil), neps and others impurities.


Drawing is the process of progressively passing or sliding fibers by each other, causing a reduction in the size of the strand, but not breaking its continuity. In processing cotton, the action is obtained by using several pairs of rolls running at speed gradually increasing from back to front.

Purpose of all roller drawing is to straighten the fibers & removing hook point being treated and to reduce the size of the strand, which they compose. The straightening is important because it arranges the fibers more nearly parallel to each other and to the direction of the strand when the fibers are well straightened; the arrangement helps in producing uniform, strong and smooth yarn.


A roving, the product of roving frame, may be defined as a continuous, slightly twisted strand of cotton fibers, which has not received its final reduction. The machine which produces roving takes sliver or other roving and reduces them by roller drawing twisting them slightly as needed, and winds the product accurately in a special form of bobbin.

The purpose of the roving operation is to attenuation drawn the sliver for a suitable size for spinning

Properties of textile supply water

Water has versatile usages in textile wet processing industry-from preparation of finishing use of water is essential in every stage of textile process. The quality of water is a dominating factor for success of wet treatment. Industrial process water hold different type of element ,sometimes pollute severely. Water mainly contains the carbonates, bicarbonates, sulfates, and chlorides of calcium, magnesium of sodium. Contaminated water can adversely affect the expecting standard of textile wet processes. The process needs a standard specification aspect of use. Textile dye house consume huge amount of water and this water must be maintain the minimum standard quality.

Common Agent | Detergent | Lubricant | Anti-foaming |Anti-creasing | Leveling agent


Detergent is one kind of surface active agent but the reserve is not always true. The surfactants which have tendency power and the number of carbon in aliphatic chain are not less than 9. Usually used in textile to clean the materials by removing undesirable substances. These products are either soap or synthetic detergent.


The chemical compounds use to prevent contact between solid surfaces in relative motion in order to reduce friction wear overhearing and rusting. They are good coolants, provide the appropriate range of viscosity and are thermally stable.

Anti foaming agent

Anti foaming agent are other types of surfactants which are able to prevent or reduce foam. Usually anti foaming agent used in dyeing bath and in printing paste to hinder the foam generation .Excess foam   Generation can create adverse effect in processing and product.

Ant creasing agent 

Usually used in dye bath or in finishing stage to prevent creasing of fabric or garments.

Leveling agent

Leveling agent is used in textile coloration process to achieve uniform dyeing over the whole substrate by controlling the rate of dyeing. Generally it is non ionic surfactants types compound either fiber substantive or dye substantive. It is available in market in liquid form.

Quality of Trimmings

The important qualities of trimmings are-
Life time: The life time of trimmings should be equal or higher than that of the garments.
Shrinkage: The shrink ability of the garments and the trimmings should be checked earlier.
Color fastness: The fastness properties of accessories should be good.
Rust: To avoid this problem, the metal trimmings should be electroplated or they should be made up of non – rusting materials.
Comfort ability: Trimmings should not create any uncomfortable feeling to the wearer. 

Golden Rules for Merchandising

-Be flexible dealing with any buyer for orders and styles
-Do not overload the factory with excessive order
