Revolutionizing Textile Handling: The Future of Efficiency and Automation

In the textile industry, factories operate with multi-machine systems and continuous production processes. The trend is clear: faster speeds, increased automation, and large-roll packaging for semi-finished products. One of the most labor-intensive and physically demanding tasks is the handling of these semi-finished products between different processes. This task alone accounts for approximately 20% of the total workforce, with the labor intensity for loading and unloading being over 2.5 times that of conveying work. The nature of this work underscores the pressing need for automation and efficiency improvements.

Challenges in Textile Handling

Textile factories deal with raw materials, finished products, and semi-finished products that are low in density, soft, fragile, and prone to damage. Handling these materials without causing damage is challenging, necessitating the use of roll packaging and reusable containers like reel barrels, yarn tubes, shaft discs, and cloth sticks. The sheer volume and bulk of these materials, coupled with variable transportation routes depending on production needs, add complexity to the handling process.

Innovations in Material Handling

Two emerging trends are transforming material handling in textile factories: continuous handling, storage, and transportation without ground contact, and direct connection of textile equipment. Mechanization is key to reducing labor, minimizing labor intensity, and enhancing production efficiency.

Material Handling: A Crucial Aspect of Textile Manufacturing

Material handling encompasses the transport and storage of raw materials, semi-finished, and finished products. Despite being an auxiliary process, it is labor-intensive and significantly impacts overall production costs, which can range from 20% to 50% of total production costs. In many factories, materials are handled or stored 80% to 95% of the time, while actual production occupies only 5%.

Efficient material handling is essential for maintaining product quality. Damage often occurs during manual handling due to inadequate systems and tools. Moreover, intermediate storage technology, a critical link in material handling, has been historically overlooked despite its importance.
