Effect of Spindle Lift in Ring Frames on Productivity and Energy

In spinning mills, power consumption plays a major role in the yarn manufacturing cost. Ring frames consume power of around 42 -55% when compared to that of the other preparatory machineries. Furthermore, the yarn content in the cop is around 55 to 60 gms only depending upon the count spun. To produce this weight of yarn, more power is required to drive the spindles to run at the maximum speed and efficiency with acceptable waste levels. Nevertheless with those disadvantages, ring spinning system is universally applicable that most of the fibres can be spun to required fineness.

Improving Productivity Of Spinning Mill

The unit had a culture of everyone is responsible but no one is accountable. KPIs were developed with standards for spindle point production, utilisation, quality, yarn realisation, power consumption per kilogram of yarn produced, man power employed per 1,000 spindles and manufacturing cost per kilogram of yarn. Every individual was assigned responsibility and held accountable, performance incentive linked to the results. After a year of close follow-up, the performance culture was set in.
