Brief About Innovation

Traditionally, tasar cocoons are ‘thigh reeled’. In thigh reeling, silk filaments from 5-6 cooked cocoons are collected, drawn together and rolled on the naked thigh, producing about 40-50 g/day of yarn with false twist. Similarly, muga coccons are traditionally reeled on a manually operated contrivance called ‘Bhir’. Two persons are required to operate this device to produce 50-80 g/day of false twisted yarn. These traditional methods of tassar and muga reeling are unhygienic and expose the reelers to dermal diseases. The four spindle of reeling-cum-twisting machine has a synthetic cot top roller delivery system for positive feeding. Polyurethane belt has been provided to ensure a positive drive. Provision has also been made to get different twists and production levels (upto 200 g/ 8 h). A lappet arrangement has been provided to facilitate easy removal and fitting of the bobbin. CSTRI Reeling-cum-twisting machine is of MS Iron fabrication with angles and bars.
