POLIVEL - REQUIRMENTS AND DISTRIBUTION TABLE

Nunber of POLIVEL pickers needed

in the spinnery taken as a calculation basis

25 operators are employed in the spinnery. The type and number of POLIVEL pickers as shown in the following table should be put at their disposal:

Department

POLIVEL type

Number of POLIVEL pickers

WILLOWS mm. 400 1
CARDING MACHINES mm. 400 2
LAPPING MACHINES AND FRAMES mm. 300 1
COMBING MACHINES mm. 300 1
DRAWING MACHINES mm. 300 2
FRAMES mm. 300 1
SPINNING FRAMES mm. 200
mm. 300
5
4
DUOBLERS mm. 300 1
TWISTING FRAMES mm. 200 4
WINDING MACHINES mm. 300 2
MAINTENANCE mm. 300 1

Total requirement 25 POLIVEL pickers

Therefore in a spinnery of 10.000 spindles a total of 25 POLIVEL pickers is used.


Distribution of the POLIVEL pickers

in the spinnery where cleaning is done by POLIVEL

By distributing the POLIVEL pickers as required thy can be used as soon as the operator noticas necessity to clean the machines. The pickers are therefore distributed in the various deparments according to the following table.

Department

Number of operators

Number of pickers

Location of POLIVEL pickers
WILLOWS 1 1 in a position easily within reach of the machine operator
CARDING MACHINES 1 2 in a position easily within reach of the machine operator
LAPPING MACHINES
FRAMES
COMBING MACHINES
1 1 in a position easily within reach of the machine operator
1
DRAWING MACHINES 1 2 1 POLIVEL for every 3 drawing frames in a position easily within reach of the machine operator
FRAMES 2 1 in a position easily within reach of the machine operator
SPINNING FRAMES 9 9 5 pickers hold in the pocket of the machine workers or at the head of the machines easily in reach of the operators; 4 pickers easily in reach of the collection workers
DUOBLERS 2 1 in a position easily within reach of the machine operators
TWISTING FRAMES 4 4 hold in the pocket of the machine workers or in a position easily within reach of the machine operators and the collection workers
WINDING MACHINES 3 2 in a position easily within reach of the machine operator
MAINTENANCE 1 1 in a position easily within reach of the maintenance staff

Special notes on the POLIVEL distribution table

It is seen that the POLIVEL distribution table has been drawn up with a view to:

Further the 200 mm. or 150 mm. POLIVEL picker can easily be carried in one's pocket since it is light and small.

Finally it is seen that only a single batch of POLIVEL pickers is required since the same pickers can be used for all working shifts. In fact when the shift is changed the pickers are passed over to the incoming shift.

Conclusions: in the spinnery where the cleaning is done by the POLIVEL, cleaning teams are completely eliminated and the machines are never stopped for cleaning.
