Winding Efficiency :
The ratio of actual production and calculated production is called winding efficiency. It is expressed as percentage. The efficiency of a highly automated winding operation is calculated by modification of the mathematical model developed for a similar problem. Winding is one of the most important operation, which is mainly occurred in spinning section. Besides, it is also important in fabric manufacturing.
Factors of Winding Efficiency:
Winding efficiency depends on the following factors
- Spindle or drum speed: The higher the speed the more is the winding efficiency
- Yarn Count: Yarn count is proportional to winding efficiency
- Yarn quality: If yarn quality increases then winding efficiency increases
- Worker efficiency: The more efficient the work is the more efficient the winding will be.
- Humidity: Humidity is reciprocal or inversely proportional to winding efficiency.
- Work load per worker: If the work load on each worker is less then efficiency of winding will be more.
- Maintenance and over hauling: If the maintenance and over hauling of the machine is not correct then efficiency of winding will decrease.
- Power failure: If power failure rate increases the winding efficiency will decrease.
- Creeling time: The more the creeling time the less is the efficiency.
- Doffing time: The more the doffing time the less is the efficiency.
- Capacity utilization: When capacity utilization decreases then efficiency increases.
- Power failure
- Improper maintenance and over hauling
- Natural disasters
- Less skilled labor
- Labor unrest
- Shortage of machine parts and raw materials
- Maintenance problems
