Study of a New Electromagnetic Weft Insertion Mechanism Based on the PLC
Based on the in-depth study of traditional weft insertion mechanism, the electromagnetic technology was introduced into the textile machinery, a new weft insertion mechanism was designed whose shuttle was moved fast in the shed by the electromagnetic force. The electromagnetic force was generated by electromagnetic coils. Meanwhile, the PLC control system which control the new electromagnetic weft insertion mechanism was devised to achieve the high speed of the shuttle.
