List of Practicals

Sr. Practical Title
1
Passage of material through different parts of plain power loom.
2
To select the proper reed and heald for a weaver's beam keeping in mind the beam, loom size and fabric construction.
3
Study of shedding mechanism of shuttle loom and cam positioning with respect to loom cycle.
4
Study of picking mechanism. Picker movement in relation with crank shaft rotation and calculation of average velocity of shuttle
5
Study of beat-up motion, construction and calculation of sley eccentricity.
6
Study of let-off motion, construction and settings
7
Study of take up motion and calculation of loom take up constant.
8
Study of Warp protection motion (both loose reed and fast reed).
9
Study of warp stop motion.
10
Study of temple motions.
11
Study of side/centre weft fork mechanism
12
Study of multiple box motion.
13
Study of different types of dobbies and their important settings.

Open Ended Problem
Apart from above experiments a group of students has to undertake one open ended problem/design problem. Few examples of the same are given below.
1. Develop a prototype of shedding mechanism.
2. Develop a prototype of picking mechanism.
3. Develop a prototype of driving arrangement of dobby.
