Textile Machinery Enters The CNC Generation

Nov. 05, 2019

The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People's Republic of China has released the "CNC Generation Equipment Innovation Engineering Action Plan" jointly organized by the Chinese Academy of Engineering. The textile machinery field is the key implementation area in the early stage of the Plan. In this industrial revolution, the numerical control and intelligent development of high-end textile machinery requires the combination of upstream and downstream in the industry, giving full play to the role of industrial alliances, improving production efficiency and textile quality.

The words “energy saving, environmental protection, high efficiency, integration, high added value and scientific content have been accompanied by the development of the industry. The demand for high-end equipment in Industrial Fabric Loom Factory is growing, and the industry will gradually move toward intelligence and high-end. The China Textile Machinery Industry Association believes that the "CNC generation" is to introduce digital control from the technical level to the level of economic and social development, and compare it with the "steam age" and "electrical age".

Quality is the basis for product talk and the heritage of brand inheritance. With the changes in the economic development model of the national economy and the rising economic development environment in China, the requirements for high efficiency, low consumption, cleanliness and functional performance of equipment have been raised. The upgrading of textile machinery is imminent.

In the steam era, textile worker James Hargreaves invented the hand-spinning machine, the Jane spinning machine. The spinning effect of the Jane spinning machine has increased by 16~18 times. In the last 30 years of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, the advancement of science and technology and the rise of industrial production, the world entered the "electrical era" from the "steam age", the machinery also moved from manual to automation, and Computer Control Paper Making Rapier Loom appeared. Labor productivity has been greatly improved. Now China is about to move to the third era - the NC generation.

In fact, in the 1970s, the machinery of Chinese textile enterprises began to explore in the field of numerical control, such as the application of DC speed regulation and the promotion of PLC. It can be said that the numerical control devices on textile machinery are ubiquitous today. Although most of them simply use PLC, frequency converter for logic control and simple motion curve control, there are also many products with certain technical content, such as Chemical fiber winding head, straight twisting machine, cotton spinning roving machine, automatic winder, weaving tufted carpet weaving machine, computerized flat knitting machine, dyeing and finishing rotary screen printing machine, flat screen printing machine, non-woven short Fiber carding machine, cross-laying machine, High Density Industrial Filter Fabrics Loom, etc.

As the key implementation area of the "Planning" in the early stage of the "Development", the textile machinery field will start to promote the application of textile special CNC system, ironless disk motor servo drive system and independent servo drive system, and integrate the development of CNC rapier/water jet/air jet loom. , CNC high-speed warp knitting machine, semi-automatic / fully automatic rotor spinning machine, self-leveling card and other textile machinery, to achieve precise parameters control, multi-motor drive control and other functions to improve production efficiency and textile quality.

In the past, the development of textile machinery relied on the introduction of foreign advanced technology and equipment, the second innovation of cooperative production and digestion and absorption, and there were not many independent research and development. Nowadays, with the rise of labor costs and the pursuit of high-quality, high value-added products by textile companies, the demand for CNC equipment in the textile industry has been on the rise. It is precisely this kind of market demand and the urgent need to build a textile powerhouse, which has added momentum to the development and production of “CNC generation” products in the textile machinery industry.

More and more enterprises have begun to cooperate with universities and research institutes or choose strong cooperation to develop and strengthen independent research and development control systems. Accelerate the implementation of the "CNC generation" innovation project in the field of textile machinery, promote the numerical control of textile machinery, improve labor productivity, enhance technical performance and added value, and contribute to the real creation of a strong textile machinery.
