Solar machine to revolutionize Indian silk reeling

The traditional tiring technique of reeling silk, under which first cocoons are soaked in a pot and then yarn is spun manually, is likely to come to an end with the launch of the Solar Multi Muga Reeling cum Spinning Machine.

The new machine is so devised that it can simultaneously carry out the reeling as well as spinning jobs for different varieties of silk like Mulberry, Muga, Eri and Tasar without any laborious human effort.

The new machine is a brain child of Mr. Manoharmayum Manihar Sharma, an innovator and a master craftsman of Adarsh Kartha (Marked) Industries based in Nongmeibung Pung Makhong, near Imphal, the capital of Northeast Indian State of Manipur.

The machine designed by Mr. Manihar uses a solar plate to operate, which has a capacity to charge 17 volt to 15 watt on a usual sunlit day.

In the absence of sunlight, the machine has a 12 volt-2 amp charger attached to it, which acts as a back-up to support its operations.

With five reeling heads, the normal dimensions of the machine are 28x 20x 12, and each of the reeling heads has a separate electric switch. Thus, even when one reeling head is switched off, the other heads can still operate normally.

Moreover, all the reeling heads have been equipped with separate bobbins and plastic gear groups. It is also possible to control the speed of the machine by using feeding pipes that are fixed along the thread lines.

Amazingly, once the cocoons are fixed in the respective slots, it is the machine that carries out all the reeling and spinning activities on its own.
