1.

General

The instruction in hand applies for AMSLER control units with the following designations: AMSLER effect yarn devices GOE, SDE, ICS AMSLER effect yarn device double SDE/SYN AMSLER effect yarn devices MC/TC AMSLER COLOR-effect device

A new dimension is given to the user with these AMSLER control units of the series 4000 concerning operating extras and programming possibilities. All adjustment and program parameters can be transferred to the control unit via the input and display unit named as "Terminal" in the following text. The control units of the series 4000 are prepared as additional optional display unit for the connection of a screen. Furthermore there exists a CAN-BUS interface, where programs and adjustment parameters can be transferred directly to a Personal Computer or from a Notebook with our AMSLER Online Interface Cable to the control unit. The necessary technical facilities for the transfer as well as the hard and software for the operation of the Personal Computer can be received as option. Not only all parameters, but also the programs themselves can be directly modified and adapted via the terminal. The programs can be stored together with the corresponding parameters in a "MEMO CARD" and are therefore available in future through the call-up of the corresponding program number or they can be modified or stored again at any time. A maximum of 32 programs can be stored with the corresponding parameters on each MEMO CARD. We can deliver the AMSLER control units according to equipment in different housing versions. Mounting versions or bench desks are possible dependent on the machine type and space conditions. The AMSLER control units always consist of the control unit of the Series 4000 and a power electronic part. The control unit and the power electronic part can also be placed separately from each other. All AMSLER devices may only be operated by persons who know how to use it. Under no circumstances the devices may be opened while they are running. Risk of injury !

Current supply

No modern control device is working without electronic units, which are responsing out-ofcontrol on too large alterations regarding the tension supply. The stabilization switchings installed in the AMSLER control units guarantee faultless function of the control up to line voltage alterations of +/-10%. The connection in series of a line voltage stabilization is unavoidable, if larger line voltage alterations have to be expected. Besides, voltage peaks and /or voltage interruptions can also cause interference at the control devices. The connection of the control to the electrical supply has to be effected on the basis of the enclosed drawings. The current supply has to be protected separately. Please take the correct values of the fuses from the scheme of connection. It is essential that the current supply cable is provided with the correct cross section. The earth connection requires special attention. Do not measure the current supply at facilities showing large alterations regarding the current consumption (e.g. main engines of spinning machines). The customer bears the responsibility regarding the guarantee of the correct current supply and compliance with the national safety regulations. Damages on our units, caused through line voltage alterations or wrong connections, are excluded from the AMSLER guarantee.

3.

Electrical connections

Please take the electrical connections between the parts of the AMSLER control unit and the manufacturing machine from the enclosed drawings. All necessary electrical lines with the exception of the connection cable for the main current supply and the lead of the safety chain are delivered already prepared .The partially specially shielded cables should be installed safely and possibly short, without crossing other lines. The current supply must be fused with the following values. AMSLER Effect yarn devices GOE AMSLER Effect yarn devices SDE, ICS AMSLER Effect yarn devices ICS AMSLER Effect yarn device double SDE/SYN AMSLER Effect yarn device Triple SDE-MC/SYN AMSLER Effect yarn devices MC/TC AMSLER COLOR-Effect device 3 x 400 V / 16 A 3 x 400 V / 16 A 3 x 400 V / 16 A 3 x 400 V / 25 A 3 x 400 V / 35 A 3 x 400 V / 25 A 3 x 400 V / 16 A

If the voltage does not reach the 400 Volt EU standard, utilization of other connections or transformers may be necessary. This aspect must be indicated when ordering our device. The correct values for the voltage are indicated on the connection drawings, which are delivered together with the unit. The frequency is set to 50/60 Hz according to standard. Alterations in the current voltage cause problems, even short interruptions can damage the sensitive electronic and microprocessor-controlled control system. Mostly it is sufficient to switch off the device and to restart it again. The system will run again as before after a few seconds. Please make sure that the spinning machine generates no slubs. Besides these errors can damage the AMSLER Servo-Motor regulator (s. also Chapt. 2)

Commission

In order to become quickly accustomed with the operation, we recommend following a set sequence pattern. We recommend the establishing of checklists on which he quotes step by step how to proceed in certain situations. The checklist provided here is to provide help, and can be expanded upon by the user. The commission shall be carried out by persons being familiar with the manufacturing machine and who have read the operating instruction in hand. The correct and complete execution of all mechanical and electrical installation work forms the basis of successful commission. This is especially true for work carried out by nonAMSLER-TEX AG personnel. Checklist for the commission Textile technical conditions have to be created at the machine in order to operate the effect yarn device. Check the current supply as well as electrical connections. Insert the supplied AMSLER MEMO CARD into the terminal. Switch on the control unit, but do not start the machine. Call up a MP-program of the AMSLER MEMO CARD and load it (see Chapter 4.2.2.1.). We have controlled the operability of these programs. The parameter adjustment belonging to the program, can be inspected by selecting the first line EP-Parameter edit in the main menu and the control of the entry lines in the sub-menu. Remove the MEMO CARD out of the unit and keep it safe, once the requested program is loaded correctly and the machine produces (see Chapt. 8.5.)

Some functions are reserved for the AMSLER Service personnel for the reason of safety the delete of MP data can for example damage the complete control.

5.2.

Terminal User Interface

The terminal is the user interface of the control units of the series 4000. A (Notebook) PC or the Online-connection can be connected optional. The result is a better overview, for example all command lines are illustrated on one picture or the connection to the previous program lines is more visible at the program production than on the display. We therefore recommend use of our PK Software for effect yarn development, which can be used with all IBM-compatible PCs, as well as the connection of our MEMO CARD Interface box. Here, we only want to touch upon the possibility of the data transfer from the control unit to a Personal Computer and vice versa. The AMSLER Network connects several AMSLER control units of the series 4000 and facilitates the supervision of the production in all details with error messages and lists. It can be received as option. Information on this can be found in the corresponding operating instructions. Page 7

Description of the menu functions


EP Parameter edit - display EP parameter

This sub-menu can be selected in the main menu for the display of the parameters of the requested EP-program by means of the arrow (movement with cursor-keys), followed from ENTER. The display shows the parameters that are important for the production of the effect yarn:

6.1.1 SE Calc - step unit


Indication of the adjustment for the step unit SE. The step unit has a direct influence on the procedure of a program. Each single program-code would be processed within a delivery of 2,5 mm, if we assume for example, that the delivery unit is 2,5 mm per basic cycle (GT), and that a step unit (SE) = 01 has been entered. If the entry of the step unit would be = 20, then the delivery of a single program-code would amount to 50 mm during the processing. Remark: Please find the explanation of the exact connections between step unit and program-code in the chapter "basic concepts". Modifications of the step unit are only possible when the MEMO CARD is inserted. Line 1 is selected and it is changed over to the EDIT-mode with ENTER. The flashing cursor indicates, that modifications can be executed with cursor-key and . Confirm the modifications with ENTER, take it back with ESC.

6.1.2 Prolonging effect prolongation


All programmed effects are prolonged by the number of basic cycles (GT) entered. If we assume for example again, that the delivery unit is 2,5 mm per basic cycle (GT), and that the value 005 has been entered for the effect prolongation, each programmed effect would be prolongated then additionally by 12,5 mm (= 5 x 2.5 mm). If no effect prolongation is required 0 should be entered. A continuous effect arises, if the prolongation is becoming larger than the distance between two effects, which is produced by the program-code. Above all at programs with different effect lengths and distances, it has to be observed that effects, which are separated by short distances, are not unintentional fitted together. Modifications of the step unit are only possible when the MEMO CARD is inserted. Line 2 is selected and changed over to the EDIT-mode with ENTER. The flashing cursor indicates, that modifications can be executed with cursor-key and . Confirm the modifications with ENTER, take it back with ESC.

6.1.3 Shortening - effect shortage


All programmed effects are shortened by the entered number of basic cycles (GT). If we assume for example again, that the delivery unit is 2,5 mm per basic cycle (GT), and that the value 005 has been entered for the effect shortage, each effect produced by the program would be then shortened by 12,5 mm (= 5 x 2.5 mm). Entry 0 as effect shortage, if the effect shortage shall be ineffective. This effect applies no longer, if the shortage is larger than the effect produced by the program code. Observe that short effects are not unintentionally eliminated, above all at programs with different effect lengths and distances. Effect shortages are only possible with the MEMO CARD inserted. Select line 3 and change with ENTER into the EDIT-mode. The flashing cursor indicates, that modifications can be executed with cursor-key and . Confirm the modifications with ENTER, take it back with ESC.

6.1.4 Thickness - effect thickness


The effect thickness which is determined by the program code can be ignored by entering a value (cursor keys and ) larger than 0. All slubs are produced with the adjusted effect thickness. Steps between 1 and 15 are possible. The proportions of the single steps are determined in the machine parameters. Normally the effect thickness increases linear from step to step. The effect thickness is determined through the program code, when the value "0" is entered for the effect thickness. Therefore it is possible to drive different effect thicknesses in one program procedure. Remark: Please find information concerning the manufacture of program code for different effect thicknesses in the Chapter "Basic concepts". Effect thicknesses are only possible when the MEMO CARD is inserted. Select line 5 and change with ENTER into the EDIT-mode. The flashing cursor indicates, that modifications can be executed with cursor-key and . Confirm the modifications with ENTER, take it back with ESC.

6.1.5 Ratio in % - ratio of effect thickness (%)


There exists the possibility of regulating the effect thickness in percentage steps by entering a value between 0 and 120. The maximum value of the effect thickness, which have been at the moment adjusted or produced through the program code, is produced by entering 100. It is not possible to execute an effect, which is commanded from the program code, if the value 000 is entered. IMPORTANT: The production of the basis yarn can be however controlled at this adjustment. There are no error messages! Modifications of the ratio are only possible with the MEMO CARD inserted. Select line 6 and change with ENTER into the EDIT-mode. The flashing cursor indicates, that modifications can be executed with cursor-key and . Confirm the modifications with ENTER, take it back with ESC.

6.1.6 Ramp-up / Ramp-down


This is an optional function and can be enabled by AMSLER. it works with CPU-version 2.63 / DSP-version 2.31 and higher. With these parameters, the ramp of the slub effect can be prolonged (up to 300%) or shortened (up to 50%) >>> the acceleration- and stop time of the slub motor can be controlled. The values (example +4, +8) and their meanings are depending on the loaded MP. example: yellow: standart ramp; ramp up = 0 ramp down = 0 blue: ramp up = +4, ramp down = +8

6.1.7 Draft - delay (at GOE/ACO/ICS)


Entry of the effective delay for the AMSLER Servomotor. This menu item is only active for GOE/ACO and ICS machines. Please take the values regarding the delay from the MP-LIST for AUTOCORO / ICS in the column DRAFT enclosed with the unit. Choose the corresponding line according to the requested yarn quality and the appropriate MP program. The number of the MP can be also taken from this list.

6.1.8 Delivery delivery speed (for Multi-Count machines)


Display of the delivery speed in meter/minute. The rotation factor () results from the ratio of rotation front cylinder to rotation spindle.

6.1.9 Delay - start delay (at Braco Draft machine)


The start of the programmed effects is delayed by the entered number GT. The start delay displaces the complete procedure by the entered number GT. The utilization of the start delay is only practical, when several output channels are operated through the control. One start delay can be entered separately for each output channel. IMPORTANT! Entry 0 as start delay, if the start delay is to remain ineffective. Modifications of the start delay are only possible at inserted MEMO CARD. Select line 7 and change with ENTER into the EDIT-mode. The flashing cursor indicates, that modifications can be executed with cursor-key _ and _. Confirm the modifications with ENTER, take it back with ESC.

6.2 EP-Code edit - display EP-Code


The program code of the loaded program is indicated in hexa decimal display and can be modified with selection of this menu item. The highest address appears (here line number), which is reserved through this program. The program code of the last address is indicated, if the ENTER key is pressed directly. But it is also possible to enter any address within the program, whereas the program code, filed under this address, is indicated after having pressed the ENTER key. Remark: A far larger program code range can be viewed, if an external PC is connected via CAN-BUS to the control. Thus the clarity is considerably increased when editing. Select the places to be modified in the program code by means of the cursor keys. The executed modifications come into effect after leaving the entry line through ENTER. REMARK: Please take the basis for the calculation of a program code from the 6 - "program development". IMPORTANT! Program code modifications are immediately executed when the edit mode is reached during the run of the manufacturing machine. It is therefore recommendable to carry out modifications of the program code only when the machine has stopped. Modifications of the EP mode are only possible when the MEMO CARD is inserted. Select line and change with ENTER into the EDIT-mode. The flashing cursor indicates, that modifications can be executed with cursor-key _ and _. Confirm the modifications with ENTER, take it back with ESC.

6.3 EP from MC load - load EP program from MEMO CARD


Insert the MEMO CARD, with the requested program on it, into the terminal in order to select a program (observe the direction and wait for approx. 30 seconds!). The display Select EP appears after the end of the loading time when selecting the menu item EP from MC load in

05.05.06

Amsler Tex AG

the main menu. Choose with the cursor the requested program of the ones indicated in the display and confirm it with ENTER. Remark: Maximum 32 programs can be on one MEMO CARD. It is a good idea to create an index from each MEMO CARD in order to facilitate the search of the programs. IMPORTANT! Entries are only accepted if they are concluded with ENTER. If the last produced EP program shall be used once again unmodified, it is not necessary to reload it except with another MP program. This safety measurement has been installed, as the same EP can proceed different results with a modified MP. This should not occur unintentionally.

6.4 EP to MC write - store program on MEMO CARD


Store programs and parameter adjustments intended for reuse on a MEMO CARD. This is possible under the menu item write EP to MC in the main menu. Here the actual program and parameter adjustment is copied with ENTER onto the MEMO CARD. The entry line can be left with ESC, without executing the copy command. Please observe when reserving a program name that no name is used where a program has been already stored - unless, it is intended to overwrite this entry. The following message appears, if an already existing program number is reserved:
File already exists Overwrite (ENTER) ?

Confirm the overwriting of an existing program with ENTER. If not, return with ESC and reserve another, new program name.

6.5 EP on MC delete - delete EP on MEMO CARD


If this menu item is called up in the main menu, an EP-program, which appears on the next display and which is selected, can be deleted in order to create space for a new EP on the MEMO CARD. The question
Are you sure?

is placed before the delete in order to avoid unintentional deleting. Confirm with ENTER, if the program should be definitely deleted. If the program should not be deleted abort the process with ESC.

6.6 MP from MC load - load MP from MEMO CARD


The parameters are designated as machine parameters MP -. They give the necessary information of the controlled manufacturing machine to the control. The machine parameters are located on the AMSLER MEMO-CARD, which belongs to the scope of delivery. IMPORTANT: Normally the user has nothing to do with the machine parameters. But there are applications with different working processes for the production. In this case the corresponding machine parameters from the delivered AMSLER MEMO CARD have to be reloaded. Afterwards the requested EP has to be reloaded also if the last loaded EP is reused. The AMSLER MEMO CARD must be inserted in the terminal. The requested machine parameter under the indicated MP is selected on the display SELECT MP after the call-up of the menu item MP from MC load in the main menu. Finish the entry with ENTER.

Remark: Machine parameters are stored on the AMSLER MEMO CARD under different designations. The delivered index of the AMSLER MEMO CARD indicates, which number has to be selected. IMPORTANT! The AMSLER MEMO CARD must be inserted in the terminal in order to transfer data. Remove it after the transfer of MP and EP and keep it separate.

6.7 MP to MC write - store MP on MC


Only specialists should store new or modified machine parameters, as otherwise wrong parameters can produce faulty and damage to the machines can not be excluded. Basically the storage of such programs is executed in the same manner as at the EP programs.

6.8 MP on MC delete - delete MP on MC


Also the deleting of MP programs should only be executed after the thorough control of the situation and also only from specialists. The machines do not work without MP. The execution of this function is restricted through the rights of access (section 5.2.).

6.9 Production data - production data


Selection in the main menu with arrow keys and ENTER. The sub-menu WORKINGDATA contains several lines, which are selected with the arrow keys and confirmed with ENTER:

6.9.1 Production data


This display is at the moment not operable.

6.9.2 Working time - operating time and produced yarn length


Display takes place only with the usage of an AMSLER MC. It is necessary for control- and service works. Display of the operating time of the control unit in hours and minutes (line 1 u. 2) as well as the produced yarn length in km and m (line 3 u. 4). The arrow on the right can be shifted with the arrow keys. The flashing message Del: Are you sure? appears when pressing ENTER. The deletion of values is only possible with a special AMSLER MC by the AMSLER service personnel. Leave the sub-menu with ESC after the display of the information.

6.9.3 Max speed - Max production speed


Display of the maximum allowed production speed (Max. speed) in meter per minute. These value tells us how fast the machine may run to get an effect length higher than the minimum length and to get a number of effects which is lower than the maximum number of effects. These data are calculated by the control device with the actual EP and MP.
Max speed Effect length Effect count m/min 55.7 35.2

If the actual speed is not within these calculated limits, you will receive a corresponding warning message: Too small effects or Too many effects. Remark: In this case the effect Page 17

7 Error messages
The error display occurs on the external net PC at the terminal, if existing. Besides it is possible to connect an alarm lamp, which has to be mounted well visible on the machine. The control is able to process errors according to their priority. - Low priority: error (warning) is indicated at the terminal and via the alarm lamp. The machine continues with the work. The warning is displayed, as long as the error exists. error is indicated at the terminal and via the alarm lamp. The machine is stopped via contact point of the control.

- High priority:

Errors which do not cause the machine to stop are displayed only as long as they exist. If the error continues to exist and if a further error occurs with the same priority, then the new error is written in the display storage. The next error, existing in the display storage is indicated as soon as the first error has been rectified. The display occurs also, if the error no longer exists in the display storage. If an error exists with higher priority than the one indicated before, then the one with higher priority is displayed. Remove errors, which are stopping the machine and invalidate it afterwards by pressing the key "ALARM". Otherwise it is not possible to restart the machine. IMPORTANT! Only serious errors cause the machine to stop, e.g. errors, which can be also visible in the product. Search therefore the cause of the error and remove it do not simply press the invalidation key.

8 Basic concepts
Effects of different lengths and thickness can be manufactured corresponding to the possibilities of the used effect yarn device. The machine, on which an effect yarn device has been mounted, determines the production of the effect type. We want to give a short overview in this operating instruction concerning the development of effect yarn. However it is not possible to treat all machine-dependent and textile-technical influences.

8.1 Program Code


Here it is important to record the dimension of an effect and to file it as program-code. If this effect is manufactured on a ring spinning machine or on a distance, is as unimportant as the color of the effect. Let us view an effect yarn device with only one output channel. There should be always effects produced with the same length of 125 mm and distances of 250 mm. The programcode exists therefore only of one code for the effect length and of a code for the length of the distance. The requested length of the effect resp. distance in mm must be divided by the product of the delivery constant and the parameter entry for the step unit: Assumption: The delivery constant amounts to 2.5 mm. The parameter entry for the step unit is 10. The product of the delivery per step unit and the parameter entry amounts to: 2,5 mm x 10 = 25 mm. Requested effect length in mm delivery constant x parameter entry for step unit 125 mm = 5 2.5 mm x 10 mm

If we divide now the requested effect length of 125 mm by 25 mm, a "5" is then resulting as first number of the program code. The number "1" has to be programmed as second number, so that the channel is activated. The effect thickness can be determined between "1 and F with the second number at an effect yarn device with servomotor drive. If we divide now the requested distance of 250 mm by 25 mm, then "A" (A = 10) is resulting as the first number of the second program code. A "0" has to be programmed as second number, so that the channel is switched off. The program consists therefore of the Code 51 A0 51 A0 ..... A program with different effect lenghts and distances can be seen in the illustration, calculated with same values for parameter entry and delivery constant.

Illustration 3

If there exist other values for the parameter entry of the step unit, for example "2" the product from the delivery constant and the parameter entry of the step unit would be: 2,5 mm x 2 = 5 mm. If we divide now the requested effect length of 125 mm by 5 mm, we receive then the value "25" for the first number of the first program code. But we know, that we only can entry a value between 1 and F for a number. That means, that we have to divide the value "25" into two numbers and thus receive the program code "F1" (F=15) and "A1" (A=10). Thus an effect in the program is produced as two effects without distance and as one. The program-code is based on the hexa decimal numerical system (0-9, 10=A, 11=B, 12=C, 13=D, 14=E, 15=F) and consists always of two numbers. The end of a program must be marked with the code "FF". If a further program code follows after "FF", it is then not processed by the control. If the control recognizes the program code "FF" it will be then continued at the address "0". Remark: The program-code "FF" describes always the end of a program and can therefore not be used as regular code within a program. If you wish an effect which has the code FF, it has to be separated into two codes (example: AF and 5F). The single number of the program code has different functions dependent from the entry in the identification line. IMPORTANT!: First of all carry out the entry in the identification line.

8.2 Correct impuls


While spinning, very often the problem occurs that there are effects in the effect program which are too short. In this case you will get too short and thin effects because the programmed effect is not completely produced. The minimum effect length is with RSM the staple length, with Open End the rotor circumference.

Incorrect short impulse x2

The start angle of the servo motor is given (angle ). If the impulse is too short (see right side), the effect cannot be produced correctly because the motor stops before giving the necessary impulse for creating correct slubs.

8.3 Step unit - SE


The step unit (SE) is indicated in mm. Here it concerns the SEc, i.e. the calculation constant, which is calculated of the multiplication of basis step in mm and the number of basis steps. Example: step unit SEb = 2,5 mm x 12 steps = 25 cm.

SEb = Basis step in mm, see sheet of chart SL = slub-prolongation, in SEb values (added to SEc lengths ) SK = slub-shortening, in SEb values (subtracted from SEc lengths) FD = slub-Thickness, see sheet of chart, influenced by placing the ratio % value: slub-ratio in % (range: 100% up to 0%) = deviation of determined slub-thickness

The slub-ratio adapts the maximum slub thickness to the previous determined value. The slub thickness is not corrected downwards at 100 % (maximum), no slub is spinned at 0% (minimum).

8.4 Basic cycle - GT


The control unit of the series 4000 receives all information concerning standstill and operation respectively concerning the delivery speed of the manufacturing machine via an installed sensor. These impulses are processed in the control in such a manner, that we receive one cycle per delivery unit e.g.: 1 cycle per 2.5 mm. This subdivided cycle is named basic cycle - GT. The delivery unit per basic cycle differs according to the effect yarn device and the manufacturing machine. It can be taken from the enclosed gear of scheme. This basic cycle is very important for the user, as it serves as basis for the calculation of the programs or the adjustment at the terminal. It presents the shortest programmable effect length. The basic cycle is the basis for the following adjustments:

Step unit Effect prolongation Effect shortage Start shortage

Adjust the values for the basic cycle higher or lower according to the type of the spinning machine.

8.5 MEMO CARD


The MEMO CARD (used as insertable storage unit for effect programs with the control unit STG 4000) consists of a battery-charged RAM-storage. The storage capacity amounts to 32 K Byte, sufficient for 32 .EP or .MP programs. 31 programs can be stored on the MEMO CARD, if a MEMO CARD name is entered. However few programs can be stored on the MEMO CARD, if more than 2000 Bytes are used per program. The connection of the MEMO CARD to the control unit is made with 34-pole plug. Please observe, that the beveled edge on the plug side of the MEMO CARD has first to be inserted into the unit, as otherwise the contact bolts are damaged. Please observe also, that no dust, dirt or yarns get into the plug slit.
MEMO CARD slit

CAUTION: The enclosed battery has to be replaced after approx. 3 years, as otherwise the data get lost on the MEMO CARD. We refuse any liability due to damage occurring because poor battery capacity or the wrong battery type. Please quote always the date of the battery renewal on the MEMO CARD. The MC has a folding compartment for the button battery on the opposite of the plug side. Please buy a new Lithium battery No. CR2330 in time before you have to exchange. Older AMSLER MEMO CARDs (recognizable on the small cross-screw on the battery compartment) needs a Lithium battery No. CR2025. Execute the exchange of the battery according to the scheme as stated below: (Please observe the battery pole +/-). Check once again the battery type, before inserting the new one. The battery change has to be carried out very quickly (max. 1 up to 2 minutes), as otherwise all data can be lost.

Amsler Tex AG

Do not keep the MEMO CARDS inserted in the unit after the usage, but keep them in the enclosed case. Please do not expose the MEMO CARD to high temperatures, humidity, direct sunlight or strong vibrations. Please do not touch the plug side of the MEMO CARD and bring it not next to strong magnetic fields. Please use the label on the MEMO CARD bag in order to quote all .EPand .MP-programs, titles or files, which are stored on the MEMO CARD. Observe the separate MEMO CARD pressure function for printing the index of the MEMO CARD. Besides it is recommendable to use a report sheet with all single data of the index of each MEMO CARD. This applies also for the corresponding spinning- and textile technical adjustments, data and conditions as well as for the production report and so on.

9 Technical instructions with regard to operation and maintenance


9.1 Effect principle
Both the multi-count effect with rotation and delay variations and also the so-called monochrome basic slub, which is produced with AMSLER device, are the product of a transmission of the retract cylinder on a spinning-stretching machine. This adjustable transmission will be reached with a separate servomotor. This servomotor executes the addition of the retract speeds via differential gear. A high-dynamical servomotor is controlled via a special control system, which receives its advance-nominal movement via an analogue computer corresponding to the signals of the program control. The synchronous transfer to the control guarantees the consideration of the speed modification of the spinning machine at the Start stop or at the Cops establishing procedure. The omission of maintenance-intensive electro magnetic couplings and mechanical nonreversing devices is of great advantage, whereas a higher rupture strength of the yarn at constant effect quality results. Besides the run of the spinning machine drive is without any load, also with switched on effect yarn device.

9.2 Spinning-technical instructions


Neither the slub thickness nor the slub frequency is limited from the mechanical side due to the new slub gear construction with an AMSLER Servo differential gear. A maximum slub frequency of 110 per minute can be guaranteed. The limit of the spinning speed is due to the textile technical parameters. Mainly the used materials, the rugs, the balloon formation as well as the pre-yarn rupture strength at jerky retract is of importance. Therefore it is necessary to control both the faultless spinning of the smooth undropped yarn and the spinning of the slub itself before each effect yarn adjustment.

05.05.06

Page 28

STG4000 Operating instructions

Amsler Tex AG

Problems can occur at the delay change slub/support. It is better to choose a higher delay than at normal production, so that a standard delay exists during the slub production. The known manufacturers offer special nep/effect yarn rugs with large opening. A compromise has to be made at the rug selection. A rug being somewhat heavier as the average number of the effect yarn has proved. The effect yarn should not be roughened or become hairy, but the balloon should not scrape against the recommended separators. The limit of the spinning speed results also through the slub formation itself. Unequal slubs arise, if the slub is no more fully developed at a slub formation time of less than 150 milliseconds. Similar spinning technical rules apply for OPEN END devices Type GOE regarding the spinning of the both yarn numbers for bar and slub. The selection of the solve drum, the rotor cross-section and the discharge nozzle is of importance. The surface of the yarn with the known adjustment parameters of the OPEN END machine can be also influenced in the slub. The scope of the rotor still determines the length of the slub. A small rotor is necessary for short slubs. The spinning speed is determined by the rotor speed and the maximum slub frequency, however mostly it can be calculated with the normal production speed.

9.3 Delivery speed and slub frequency


As the slub thickness and the slub frequency do not present a strong loading for the ringspinning machine when using servo differential gears, a maximum slub frequency of 140 per minute can be assumed from the mechanical side as upper limit. The limit of the delivery speed, i.e. production speed of the spinning machine is therefore above all within the textile technical range. The criteria is mainly the rug loading at high speeds, the balloon formation and the jerky withdrawal movement of the Flyer- resp. Finisseur spools when forming the slub. The balloon formation has to be controlled before each production of slub yarn and both in the slub part as also in the bar, i.e. in the thin yarn spot. The spinning system should work with both conditions without any problems. It is useful to choose a rather too heavy rug, which prevents a striking of the slub on the balloon limit rings or on the baffles, so that the slub is not roughened. The circuit time is eventually too short at relatively high spinning speeds and above all at short, thick slubs. The start-up- resp. the descend ramp of the servo motor can both be longer than the adjusted slub length, so that the requested slub thickness is never reached. The appropriate reduction of the spinning speed in such a case has to be executed.

9.4 Maintenance of the AMSLER Servo Differential Gear


Servomotor: Both the installed, sealed servomotor and the corresponding servo controller may not be opened. The temperature of the aluminum housing of the motor can increase up to 70 C. Control the belt tension of the special belts once a week. It should be free of fibres and should not come into contact with fat. Grease the spiral toothed, tempered drive gear wheels between servo motor and differential gear with a high grade adhesive fat once a week. A special lubrication nipple for grease pistols leads on the needle bearing of the counter shaft. The actual differential gear is provided with a fat filling. Please use a liquid transmission lubricant as e.g. SHELL ALVANIA EP grease RO Page 29

Belt: Gear wheels:

Differential gear:

STG4000 Operating instructions

Amsler Tex AG

for re-greasing via lubrication nipple. Filling content is approx. 0.15 up to 0.2 liters. The control interval is approx. every 5000 operating hours or 1 year. Rearrangement parts: The rearrangement parts connect the differential gears with the spinning machine gear. Mostly the complete delay change transmission is delivered again from AMSLER. These dynamical strong loaded gear parts have to be controlled every two weeks and have to be provided with adhesive fat. Oil the chains regularly. The inserted gear belts or chains have to be retightened thoroughly, as they are really important together with the tooth backlash of the retract cylinder drive concerning the rupture strength of the effect yarn. Gear wheels: Grease the external gear wheels every 4 months with the best adhesive fat. Grease a needle bearing via lubrication nipple at the SDE gears. The oil filling should be executed with differential oil such as e.g. SHELL TIVELLA at gears with numbers < 100. Use thin special gear fat of the type e.g. SHELL ALVANIA EP grease R0 at gears with numbers > 100. Gears: Control the total condition of the gear every 5 years.

9.5 Blocking pivots


The removal of the locking device on the differential gear is intended for the changeover to effect operation. The installation of this locking device for normal yarn operation is absolutely necessary. Remove the main fuses at a longer standstill of the effect yarn device.
