Re-evaluation on Causes of Circular Knitting Machine Production Efficiency and their Impact on Fabric Quality

Md. Anisuzzaman Rassel, Mohammad Mohsin Ul Hoque


The productivity of knitting machine depends on yarn type and its quality, knitting parameters, operating conditions, workplace safety measures, and motivational factors of workforce. For several reasons, knitting machine can stop working and the production process is interrupted. In this paper, it was found that the main reason for yarn breakage is the condition of the working environment in which it operates. Yarn breakage is not only responsible for production losses, but it also creates quality problems on fabric texture. Quality is money as it is interlinked with reputation. In order to survive in a competitive market, it is important to analyse and resolve the root causes which can hamper production efficiency. Environmental factors are involved with knitted fabric production efficiency. Less production efficiency enhances more power consumption and other utilities. As a consequence, the cost of pollution on our environment is rising. This paper shows that causes of production loss and efficiency interruptions is due to different conditions of working environment and other facilities which can motivate employees to work efficiently in their workstations.
