Winding is one of the most important operation,
which is mainly occurred in spinning section.
The creation of large yarn packages that can be
easily unwound, is called winding.
This makes using the yarn on subsequent
machines both easier and more economical.
Three zones of winding:
1. Unwinding zone
2. Tension and clearing zone
3. Winding zone
To prepare the bigger package from ring bobbin.
To remove spinning faults.
To wax the material.
To improve the quality of yarn
There are two types of winding
1.Spindle drive: Where the spindle upon which the
package is placed is driven directly.
(a) Constant speed winder
(b) Variable speed winder
2.Friction drive: where the spindle upon which the
package is placed is free to rotate and package is
driven through friction by contact with a driven
Its function to provide setting to cone having
package holders, it lies on upper part of
machine on drum.
It a polished surface metallic drum slightly cone
type .It has cut marks or grooves cut in to it at its
surface to help the cross winding of packages.
Magazine is the main component
of the autoconer machine its
function is to hold the cops
for winding its capacity lies up to 9 cops.
Tension assembly provides sufficient tension to
the yarn during unwinding from cope to winding
on to cones.
Its function is to removes the faults
such as thin and thick places,
neps, hairiness according to the
Waste suction pipe:
During yarn cutting and splicing it sucks the
The function of plate is to rotate the bobbins one
It is a disk type wheel ,its functions is to hold the
filled bobbins for unwinding process.
Its function is to run wax bush continuously.
To provide smooth surface to yarn wax is applied
especially to the yarn intended for knitting, the
function of wax bush is to apply wax to yarn to
make its hairs sticky.
When ever yarn breaks during
winding the package move in
opposite direction with slow
speed during that time it sucks
the broken yarn end from the
package and take it for splicing.
It take the yarn end from bobbin toward splicing
The splicing mechanism performs
the knot free joining of the two yarn
ends after yarn breakage.
Now a days air splicing is used.
Dust removal unit:
It collects the dust and fiber fly.
It moves from one end to another
end of machine to remove and
suck the dust ,fly and other
contaminant particles and
keeps winding unit clean.
Winding process should be accurate for
accelerate the next fabric manufacturing
process. winding process should fulfill the
Winding process should be easy.
Characteristics of the yarn should not be change
Winding process should be economical.
winding faults should be minimize.
Yarn package size and shape should be
•Yarn package should be cheap in cost .
•Avoid excess in looseness or tightness.
•Exact package hardness.
•In winding, yarn knots should be smaller in size and
amount of knots should be minimum.
In auto cone department the humidity and
temperature are maintained according to the
requirements throughout the year.
Normally ranges are:
If winding tension is selected properly, the
following tensile properties are not affected
work- to- break
But excessive tension in winding will deteriorate
the above said tensile properties.
The aim of the modern automatic winder is to
make the wound package as uniform as
possible along with achieving higher production,
better quality, and lower power consumption per
kg of product and flexibility.
