Driving Mechanism and Production of Tapped Loom

Experiment name: Study on driving mechanism and production of tapped loom.

Objectives:
  1. To know about the driving mechanism of tapped loom.
  2. To know about the production of tapped loom.
  3. To know about the different parts of the tapped loom.
Different part of tapped loom:
  1. Motor pulley.
  2. Machine pulley.
  3. Gear -1
  4. Bottom shaft gear.
Specification:
  1. Motor RPM:1440
  2. Motor pulley dia:3.5inch
  3. Machine pulley dia:18inch
  4. Teeth of gear -1: 36
  5. Teeth of bottom shaft gear: 72

Process-1:

                                                          Motor pulley dia                 Teeth of gear-1
RPM of Bottom shaft = Motor RPM x ---------------------------------- x ------------------------------------
                                                           M/C pulley dia              Teeth of bottom shaft gear

               3.5”       36
= 1440 x -------- x --------
               18         72

= 140

PPM = RPM of Bottom shaft x 2

               3.5”       36
= 1440 x -------- x -------- x 2
               18         72


= 280

Process-2:

PPM = RPM of Crank shaft x 2

               3.5”
= 1440 x ---------
              18

= 280

                       PPM         280
Production = ---------- = ----------- inch/min
                        PPI           60

   280 x 60 x 8
= ------------------------------ meter/shift
   60 x 39.37

= 56.896114 meter/shift.

Conclusion:
By this experiment we came to know about gearing diagram & calculated the production of tappet loom.
