Basics of building winding packages are described in a simplified manner supported by numerous diagrams and photographs. Various terms associated with winding systems/packages are conceptually clarified like random winding, patterning, precision winding, gain, open wind, close wind, step precision winding etc. Principles of various winding systems along with basic mathematics involved are described. Current developments in winding machines have opened up immense possibilities in package building that demands through understanding of fundamental aspects on the part of the user.
The book is useful to textiles students as well as textile professionals working in staple and synthetic yarn spinning, weaving, knitting, yarn dying, texturizing, sewing thread manufacturing, technical textiles etc. The book is also useful to professionals from other disciplines like chemical, electronics, computer and mechanical dealing with winding systems.
- Thoroughly describes fundamentals of yarn laying on a package
- Describes mathematical equations related to various modes of winding, including random, precision and step precision winding
- Focuses on fundamental aspects to be taken into considerations for building a winding package according to its end use applications
