- Realistic / Conventional
- Manufacture man-made fibres
Perform the operation, monitoring and maintenance of machines and processes to manufacture man-made fibers, ensuring that the product meets the required specifications, keeping efficiency and productivity at high levels.
- Measure yarn count
Be able to measure yarn length and mass to assess fineness of roving, sliver and yarn in different measuring systems.Also able to convert into the various numbering system such as tex, Nm, Ne, denier, etc.
- Process man-made fibres
Converting synthetic granule into man-made-fibres such as filament yarns or staple fibre yarns.
- Control textile process
Planning and monitoring textile production to achieve control on behalf of quality, productivity and delivery time.
- Manufacture non-woven filament products
Perform the operation, monitoring and maintenance of machines and processes to manufacture nonwoven filament products, keeping efficiency and productivity at high levels.
- Maintain work standards
Maintaining standards of work in order to improve and acquire new skills and work methods.
- Tend spinning machines
Operate spinning machines keeping efficiency and productivity at high levels.
- Finish processing of man-made fibres
Completing the processing operation of man-made fibres and ensuring that the product is made according to customer specification
- Prepare raw materials for man-made fibres manufacturing
Prepare for processing of man-made fibres, able to work on melt spinning process to produce thermoplastic fibres such as polyester, polyamide, polyolefins (e.g. polypropylene) and glass fibre. Work on a melt-extruder, where the liquid is forced through the spinner opening under pressure and cooled by a jet of air to form the filament. Able to work in spinning preparation (spin finish), generally applied at the bottom of the spinning duct. Able to work on dry spinning, to produce acetate, triacetate and polyacrylnitrile fiber dissolving polymer in a solvent, to extrude the dissolved polymer through a spinneret into a chamber of heated air or gas where the solvents evaporates and the filament forms. Able to work in wet spinning process, to produce viscose, acrylic fibres, dissolving polymer in solution and force under pressure through an opening into a liquid bath in which the polymer is insoluble.
