Spinning Machine --From Hand to Automatic

Spinning is an ancient textile art in which plant, animal or synthetic fibers are twisted together to form yarn (or thread, rope, or cable). For thousands of years, fiber was spun by hand using simple tools, the spindle and distaff. Only in the High Middle Ages did the spinning wheel increase the output of individual spinners, and mass-production only arose in the 18th century with the beginnings of the Industrial Revolution.

The Old Spinning Wheel

In the textile mills, hundreds of workers would operate machines such as this. The factories were hot, dusty and incredibly noisy. Working on these machines was dangerous

Modern powered spinning, originally done by water or steam power but now done by electricity, is vastly faster than hand-spinning.

  1. Spinning Machine 2 is not a spinning machine-it is a loom-it takes threads & weaves them together to make cloth

  2. The machines also determine the reduction in the cross sectional area and the elongation of the test specimen when subjected to an axial force. The tensile test is generally carried out to determine the reaction of a particular material under a varying force field or to identify the weak points of a particular design before it is finalized for manufacturing.

  3. Computerized printing, as a procedure is route quicker than the traditional screen printing, because of the impressively less number of steps included. bursting strength tester
