Comber Machine | Study on the Material Passage of Comber machine

Name of experiment: Study on the material passage of Comber machine.

  1. To remove fibres shorter tan a predetermined length so as to enable spinner to produce finer yarn than that can be spun from the same carded sliver.
  2. To remove neps and impurities.
  3. To produce uniform sliver of required wt/unit length.
  4. To make the fibre straight and parallel so that yarn become even and lustrous.

Passage diagram:
At first lap is fed by lap roller. Then lap is passed though the condenser. Material is passed under the feed roller and through the nipper. Here top and bottom nippers are used to nip the lap. Then lap is passed through the detaching roller. Here a cloth clearer is used to clean the lap. Then it passes through the condenser and calendar roller. Then it enters into the drafting zone by the feed table. Then the drafted material is passed by the help of belt into trumpet. Finally it is deposited into can by passing though coiler calendar roller and coiler head.
