Coir curling unit consists of a set of machineries used to produce curled ropes out of coir fibre. Curled ropes are used in coir mattresses, sofas, couches and in automobile and locomotive seats.
Hackling machine is used for fine cleaning and separation of fibre. Fibre bales are untied, sprayed with water and fed into the hackling machine. Beating principle is adapted for fibre cleaning and separation.
Hackling machine – Machine Specifications:
|POWER||:||10 H.P. – 1440 RPM|
|CAPACITY||:||2000 Kg fibre / 8 hr shift|
Curling machine is used to produce curled coir ropes from Brown coconut coir fibre, which is cleaned and dried from the beater unit.
• Robust design and construction of rotating parts with ball bearings makes maintenance free.
• Smoother running due to high quality gears and gear box used.
• Few roller parts are chrome plated for longer life.
• Safety doors with limit switches to stop the machine when door opens increases the safety of the worker.
|POWER||:||5 H.P. – 1440 RPM & 2 H.P – 1440 RPM motors 1 each|
|CAPACITY||:||1” rope: 450 Kg / 8 hrs
¾” rope: 400 Kg / 8 hrs
Auto feeding machine:
This machine is a new invention for our coir industry, especially for curled coir units it’s a great one as it replaces a skilled labor easily. It carries fiber from the bottom using spiked lattice which is fitted on the conveyor belt running vertically up. This fiber is fed to the curling conveyor belt using a drum which runs in the front portion of the feeding machine to pull the fiber from the spiked lattice and drop it in the channel to the curling conveyor.
|POWER||:||1/2 H.P. – 1440 RPM & 1/2 H.P – 1440 RPM motor coupled to a transcend gear box.|
|CAPACITY||:||60kg / hr|
Curling Winding Machine:
Winding machine is used to wind the curled rope into uniform predetermined size bundles from the spoon bundles from the curling machines. It is done for the easier load ability. This machine contains 2 different parts – rewinding device run by one hp motor and unwinding spool. The winding can be done manually also, which needs more effort and work from the operator side.
|POWER||:||1H.P. – 1440 RPM|
|CAPACITY||:||60 bundles / 8 hr shift|
