ICC to display award winning ‘On Card’ flat tops height measuring device at ITME India


  • Measures flat tops height variations on carding machine.
  • Accurately measures height of top
  • Offers data on overall flat tops height variation and on grinding cut needed
  • Helps enhance life of tops, maintain consistency of card sliver & reduce wastage


One of the oldest Indian manufacturer and exporter of card clothing and card room accessories, ICC Ltd is showcasing its award winning ‘Tops Height Measuring’ (THM) device, an innovative ‘On Card’ technology, to solve uncertainty and a pain area faced by spinners in the carding department at the upcoming ITME India in hall H1, stall D - 26.


The THM, which has been developed by ICC’s own research & development team, is a well thought and engineered device, which can measure the flat tops variations on the machine and can also be digitalized. This new device takes the data and presents in such a way that a user can identify essential data in his/her laptop or PC in Microsoft Excel file format.


The data which can be identified includes, overall flat tops height variation, measured in individual flats online; how much grinding cut will be required to get a certain level of variation standard; how many points will be ground to achieve the required level.


The THM device also pinpoints the exact flats which needs to be ground for achieving the required level and lastly also offers data on which flat tops the on-card grinding machine need to be set. The data can be stored for future reference, thus enabling mills to maintain service records.


THM can also be used to know the distortion in tops due to change in production rate, raw material and settings. In addition to this, the THM can avoid excessive cylinder wear out on account of inappropriate carding action, due to few rogue flats and enhance lifetime of flat tops.


The THM has also won the Research & Development 2015-16 award from the Textile Machinery Manufacturers Association (TMMA).


“So far, in case of flat tops maintenance, there is no scientific method available with the mill technicians, to check the tops height evenness on card, and the contributing factors in case of variations,” Mr Prasad Mahale, Vice President (Sales and Marketing) at ICC said.


“Everyone uses a common work method to level the flat tops, which often shortens the life of the tops and result in inconsistency in quality output, as the industry still does not have proper equipment to measure the height variation of the flat tops on the card itself when it is working and in hot condition,” he added.


“Variation cannot also be checked time to time and hence there is no opportunity to correct the level of the flat tops, which also results in reduced cylinder wire life and poor quality. ICC, understood the need and developed the THM to address this problem,” Mr Mahale informed.
