Here is a brief overview of the typical components and operation of a tuck carding machine:

  1. Feed Hopper: The machine starts with a feed hopper where the fibers are loaded for processing. The hopper ensures a consistent and controlled supply of fibers to the machine.
  2. Feeding Mechanism: The fibers are fed into the machine through a series of feed rollers. These rollers help in controlling the feed rate and delivering a uniform layer of fibers.
  3. Carding Cylinder: The carding cylinder consists of a large drum covered in fine wire teeth or card clothing. As the fibers pass through the carding cylinder, the wire teeth comb and align the fibers, separating and parallelizing them. This process helps in removing impurities, such as dirt, short fibers, and vegetable matter.
  4. Doffer: After passing through the carding cylinder, the fibers are stripped from the drum by a doffer, which is a roller covered with card clothing. The doffer removes the formed web of fibers from the carding cylinder and transfers it to the next stage.
