Authors(1) :-Jayashri V. Chopade

Mercerization is one of part of wet processing technology; it is the special type of treatment for cotton. Mercerization is done to get some special properties of the textile materials. In this process, the physical properties of the material get change. The purpose of this work is to study the effect of deflection of mercerization machine shaft and determine how shaft stiffness affects in mercerization process. The Simulation and experiment has shown that the residual stress on the shaft deformation accounts for about 7 mm, which cannot be ignored. The control of the potential error from residual stress in the process of shaft deflection measurement is of great significance for improving the shaft deflection accuracy. The design parameters were optimized with the help of ANSYS with the objective of minimizing the internal diameter of shaft. The design optimization also showed significant potential improvement in the performance of shaft. The results of ANSYS are used for determination of deflection characteristics, modeling and analysis of mercerization machine shaft.
