Healding &Reeding

 

1.Definition

Healding: Warp wire through the heddle in a certain rules

Reeding : Warp wire through the reed in a certain order

 

2.Preparatory Work

1) According to the task, you need to get suitable heddles with straight and smooth.

Putting the heddles perfectly on the heald frame,in the meantime,you need calculate the sum of heddles and divide all the heddles into handful in common.

2) Hoisting the Heald frame

3) Putting the wire beam as right place .

4) Unting the wire from the warp beam one by one,the width of handful is 16-25mm and tensioning the wire with lump. After untie all warp wire ,turn the warp beam slowly. Move the twisted wire to back place if the warp wire is not enough .

5) The shed stick replaced the Twisted rope.

6) According to specification of the mesh, you need to choose right reed.

 

3. Reeding and Healding Operation Process

heddle

1)Pull out one handful wire from wire beam, move the warp wire to the reed. Make sure the wire is appropriately, in case can pull them easier when healding.

2)The order of healding is from left to right.

3)According to the order, you count 4-10 wire,and then make the wire through the heald eye. Habitually, we call the heddle closest to the reed as the first row heddle.

 

4.Weaving Types

A:Plain weave

A1Two piece heald frame with single row heddle: according the order,1-2-1-2-…..,

It means :(from left to right)

1.the first wire through the first heddle in the first heald frame,

2.the second wire through the first heddle in the second heald frame,

3.the third wire through the second heddle in the first heald frame,

4.the fourth wire through the second row heddle in the second heald frame. Repeat(1 2 3 4) until the healding is finished.

A2Two piece heald frame with both row heddles:according to the order:1-3-2-4-1-3-2-4-..

It means :(from left to right)

1).the first wire through the first heddle in the first row heddle of the first heald frame,

2).the second wire through the first heddle in the second row heddle of the second heald frame,

3).the third wire through the second heddle in the first row heddle of the first heald frame,

4).the fourth wire through the second heddle in the second row heddle of the heald frame. Repeat(1 2 3 4) until the healding is finished.

B:Twill weave

Four piece heald frame with single row heddle,according to the order 1-2-3-4-1-2-3-4-…

Four piece heald frame with both row heddles,according to the order 1-3-5-7-2-4-6-8-1-3-5-7-2-4-6-8-..

 

Note:

1)Pls confirm the location of the first wire on the reed, the distance of both sides of reed is same.

2)Pls check the wire whether it is correct, then using reed knife put the heddle to read hole one by one. Usually the width of one handful is 8-10cm.

3)Everything is confirmed correctly.Pls make the wire through the reed hole one by one.

4)Headling and Reeding are finished.

 

5.Attention and Requirements

a. The technological requirements of healding

1).Healding in the correct order

2).Warp wire don’t spiral each other on the shed stick

3).Warp wire is smooth and straight

b.The points of attention

1).Checking the heddle with correct location or not

2).If you find the wire is broken,pls twist it well before healding

3).Pls reduce the friction between wire and heddles or wire will be curve.

4).Pls finish a cycle before hand over to the nest shift

c. The technological requirements of reeding

1).Pls confirm the location of the first wire on the reed, the distance of both sides of reed is same.

2).According to the healding order, one wire through one reed hole, no double wire ,no empty hole,no wrong twist.

1).Pls check the read size is suitable for requirement or not.

2).Pls place the reeding correctly

3).Don’t touch the reeding by hand in case to prevent corrosion

4).Pls check the reeding when you work a period of time.

5).Pls check the quality of reeding before the shift

6).Comprehensive inspection, when finish the reeding .

7).Pls correct timely, when you find double wire, empty eyes,wrong twist, wrong cross.
