  • Carding is the ‘Heart’ of Spinning.
  • Opening to individual fibers, this enables elimination of impurities and performance of other operations.
  • Elimination of impurities occurs mainly in the region of the taker-in.
  • The degree of cleaning achieved by modern card is very high, in the range of 90 -95%. Thus, the overall degree of cleaning achieved by the blow-room and carding room together is as high as 95 -99%. Card sliver still contains 0.05 – 0.03% of foreign matter.
  • Elimination of dust, which are bound to the fibers. Significant fiber/metal and fiber/fiber friction is needed in order to loosen such particles, this are available in carding operation.
  • Thus the modern developments, in the carding machine, are carried out to produce better sliver. The following sections discuss some of the modern developments in the carding machine.
