MOTORISED CUM PEDAL OPERATED FLYER SPINNING MACHINE

Motorised Spinning Machine

  • Traditionally, Takli Spinning was practiced for production of Eri Spun yarn in Assam and Northeastern states
  • The average production of Eri spun silk was 50 gm per day
  • Motorized Cum Pedal operated Spinning Machine was developed to enhance the productivity (150-200 gms/day) and quality of the spun yarn ensures better returns
  • This machine is used for Spinning not only Vanya silks ( Eri, Tasar & Muga) but also mulberry silk (pierced and cut cocoons)
  • The device is portable and can be operated manually also by pedaling during power failure

 

TWO IN ONE REELING CUM TWISTING MACHINE FOR TASAR AND MUGA COCOONS

Motorised Reeling cum Twisting Machine

  • Traditional thigh reeling of tasar cocoons is most cumbersome and inhuman resulting in low production (about 80gms/day) and the quality of the yarn reeled is very poor.
  • Introduction of CSTRI Motorised Reeling Cum Twisting machine and wet reeling of tasar cocoons has helped in removing the drudgery, improving the production (200-250 gms/day) and quality of the tasar yarn.
  • Provision has also made to carry out the reeling manually during power failure.

 

TASAR REELING TECHNOLOGY PACKAGE

  • Tasar reeling package has been developed by which superior quality tasar silk yarn can be produced

 

TASAR COCOON SORTING MACHINE

Tasar Cocoon Sorting Machine

  • At present, sorting of tasar cocoon is done manually depending on shape and size of cocoons, which takes long time to fix the grade for transaction of cocoons
  • This machine facilitates sorting of cocoons as per the grade scientifically within short span of time

 

PRODUCTION PROCESS OF NON MULBERRY MILL SPUN SILK YARN

  • Specific degumming recipe has been developed for Eri cocoons
  • High quality eri spun yarn of 2/80s, 2/120s count has been manufactured in bulk scale successfully in worsted spinning system

 

LOW COST SOLAR OPERATED SPINNING MACHINE

Solar Operated Spinning Machine

  • improves the quality of hand spun yarn
  • reduces production cost and drudgery
  • suitable for physically handicapped / aged persons
  • battery back of 6 hours
  • increased speed of the motor for higher production
  • production of around 180 to 200 gms / day

 

BRUSHING TECHNIQUE FOR TASAR COCOON COOKING

  • A special brush for brushing tasar / muga cocoons before taking into reeling has been developed that
    • helps in eliminating the deflossing process
    • saves time
    • reduces wastage percentage
    • prevents the cocoon opening during cooking.
