Roving Traverse Mechanism

The proper functioning of a roving traverse mechanism is important to get the most out of aprons and cots.


The width of a roving traverse should be adjusted to 8-10 mm (depending on width of cot) in conventional spinning system. The movement of traverse should be continuous and smooth and the dwelling time (time taken at reversal point) should be very less.


Typically, there is a cam-and-follower system in the ring frame to convert rotary movement to linear movement. In case there is any wear out in these components, the linear movement will not be continuous and smooth. This will result in groove formation in aprons/cots.
