Abstract:

A positioning mechanism driven by a stepper motor in a knotting system forming a Turkish knot is presented herein. A prototype carpet loom was designed to include the positioning mechanism in the experimental system. A mathematical model describing the dynamic characteristics of the positioning mechanism-stepper motor configuration was developed. Simulation studies were carried out together with experiments on the positioning mechanism. The simulation results are reported herein with experimental verification.

Tags: knotting system, stepper motor, positioning mechanism, mathematical modelling, Turkish knot.
