Talking about the development and significance of textile cotton blending technology

Editor's Note: Experts interpret the importance of textile cotton blending for textile production, introduce traditional textile blending methods and related indicators of HVI, and use modern computerized cotton blending system to select better cotton blending scheme based on HVI data of raw cotton. Improve labor efficiency and reduce production costs. Computerized cotton is an inevitable trend in the development of cotton technology.

1. Overview of cotton distribution

Cotton blending is a basic work of cotton spinning enterprises, which is closely related to cotton spinning production, product quality and variety, and related to raw material supply, inspection, testing and production management. When blending cotton, the best solution should be made according to the yarn quality requirements and the characteristics of the original cotton. Reasonable selection of a variety of raw cotton for use, you can give full play to the characteristics of different raw cotton, learn from each other. Because the cotton blending can not only improve the production efficiency, stabilize and improve the quality of yarn production, but also has a significant impact on reducing the spinning cost and saving cotton, the cotton blending work has very important technical and economic significance in the textile enterprises.

With the deepening of the reform of China's cotton quality inspection system and the implementation of the new national cotton standards, the quality of raw cotton is tested by instruments, and the cotton data of the public inspection is applied to the cotton management system to analyze the HVI data of raw cotton. It is convenient for enterprises to purchase raw cotton in advance and realize fine management of raw cotton. At present, the acquisition, processing, sales and use of raw cotton in China have been turned to HVI tester, and each bale has an HVI data. According to the performance indexes of raw cotton, the reasonable utilization of cotton to improve the utilization rate of raw cotton will produce greater economic benefits. The use of HVI data for computerized cotton is one of the development directions of cotton spinning production technology. Computer technology is used to match cotton, instead of manual and inaccurate calculations, which improves the stability, rationality and economy of cotton blending quality.

2, classification queuing method

The traditional method of cotton blending in cotton mills is the sorting queuing method. The so-called classification is based on the nature of the raw materials and the different requirements of various yarns. The raw cotton suitable for producing a certain product or a certain number and purpose yarn is sorted into one category, which can be divided into several categories. The so-called queuing is to arrange the same type of raw cotton in a team according to the region, nature and quality, so as to replace it. The classification queuing method is a scientific method of cotton blending that has been summarized in China's long-term production practice. The advantage is that the cotton blending components of various yarns are pre-arranged in a planned manner, and the whole cotton blending work is planned to ensure the stable nature of the blended cotton, which is beneficial to the improvement of the yarn quality from the original basis. And to achieve the purpose of saving cotton and reducing costs.

3, HVI data

There are many HVI data, and the indicators affect each other, and there are often contradictions between the indicators. According to the data, the length of the upper half of the cotton fiber, the uniformity index, the breaking specific strength, and the micronaire value are the main indicators that are mainly considered when producing cotton.

Upper half length. The length of the upper half is one of the most important quality indicators of raw cotton. The longer the fiber, the greater the chance of contact between the fibers, the increased saturation force between the fibers, and the stronger the yarn strength, especially when spinning the fine or extra fine yarn, the fiber length has a more significant influence on the yarn strength.

Uniformity index. The fiber length uniformity index is a degree of uniformity or uniformity of the fiber length distribution, which has an important influence on the yarn dryness, and also has an influence on the strength of the yarn and the production rate of the raw cotton.

Breaking strength. When the fiber breakage strength is large, the fiber density is small or the strength is high, which is advantageous for the yarn forming strength. Since the fiber is not easy to be broken, the cotton is less, and the production rate is high, which is favorable for reducing the amount of cotton used.

Micronaire value. The effect of micronaire value on yarn quality is the combined effect of fiber fineness and maturity on yarn quality. For the same raw cotton variety, the micronaire value is high, the fiber is too ripe, and the natural curl is small. When spinning a good number of yarns, the number of fibers in the cross section of the yarn is small, the fiber saturation is poor, and the yarn strength is low. The micronaire value is too low, the cotton fiber is prone to harmful defects, the dyeability is poor, the breakage rate is high, and the yarn strength is also low.

4, computer cotton system

With the wide application of computer technology in various industries, it is also very helpful for textile and cotton. The traditional textile cotton blending is mainly calculated by the technicians. The effect depends largely on the human experience and the meticulousness of the handling problems. There is one-sidedness and contingency. Therefore, a more efficient and convenient modern computerized cotton system has emerged as the times require, and has been continuously developed and widely used. With convenient HVI data, the computerized cotton system can perform complex calculations and get a better cotton blending solution.

According to the data, the Computer Aided System (CAS) based on HVI data has been applied in Anhui Yuhua Textile Co., Ltd. CAS mainly includes: bar code-based electronic storage management of raw cotton, classification of cotton bales based on HVI data and automatic cotton blending, optimization of package chart on cotton bales, cotton yarn quality prediction, etc. CAS can realize the electronic management of the original cotton storage of the enterprise; optimize the cotton blending scheme; predict the quality of the cotton yarn through the cotton blending result; and give the raw cotton procurement reference scheme according to the spinning requirements. The application practice shows that CAS can predict the quality of yarn into yarn, and can take measures in production to optimize the cotton efficiency, and reduce the production cost.

Since 1982, the US Cotton Company has promoted the Engineered Fiber Selection (EFS) to cotton spinning mills. To date, all US textile companies have purchased, transported, stored and selected cotton through the EFS system to achieve cotton blending. The package is even and stable. Zhengzhou Chaoge Spinning Co., Ltd. began to apply the system in 2007. They have done the EFS and artificial cotton comparison test. Under the same batch of US cotton and the same process conditions, the JC 18.2 tex knitting yarn was spun. The results showed that: EFS Cotton is scientific, stable and consistent. The yarn strength and the amount of cotton saved were also good, and no cross-bar phenomenon occurred. At the same time, EFS can also provide reference for the next purchase of raw cotton, avoid excessive purchase and save liquidity.

In order to better meet the product quality requirements, control the production cost, and enable the enterprise to obtain the maximum economic benefits, it must be based on the quality requirements of different products, according to the HVI data of the original cotton, to achieve the combination of experience with cotton and instrument cotton. Reasonable use of different quality raw cotton, master the scientific method of cotton blending, can achieve effective control of yarn quality and cost. At the same time, we should also see that the use of computerized cotton is an inevitable trend in the development of cotton blending technology, and is also a necessary step in the development of industrialization of cotton textile enterprises.

At present, the feasibility study and project of a project underway by Academician Yao Mu is: the integration of automatic cotton-matching design of cotton ginning packaging and cotton spinning mills that need to be resolved in the process of promoting the reform of cotton circulation system and cotton inspection system. Typical demonstration base construction project. It is believed that in the near future, computer automatic cotton blending technology will certainly contribute to the realization of the dream of China's textile power.
