Ginning Machine, Cotton


Cotton is the world’s most widely used textile fibre. Thus the quality of cotton is extremely critical for successful critical for successful textile processing. The quality of baled cotton depends on many factors including variety, weather conditions, harvesting and storage practices, moisture, trash contents and ginning processes. The problem in ginning of cotton in India is that while separating lint from seed the ginning machine damages the cotton fibre as well as seed because of outdated local machinery. In this research our aim is to modify the existing ginning mechanism with emphasis on the design and development in saw gin blade to improve the spinning characteristics of lint cotton. Ginning machines are widely useful in rural areas where there is problem of power or electricity or use of electricity is unaffordable. The present research aims to develop human powered pedal operated ginning machine with low cost, which will facilitate the rural areas.
