Management to obtain production information from this production line

Maintenance information. The engineering station is an ordinary PC connected to the operator station via Ethernet. A set of WinCC software is also running on the engineering station, configured via DCOM, and also accessing data from WinAC in OPC mode, and certain permissions are higher than on the operator station. Because WinCC industrial configuration software is used on the operator station, it is very convenient for management to obtain production information from this production line. WinCC has a variety of methods for online data exchange.


For example, it can use the client / server mode of WinCC, or the Web browser function of WinCC, etc., to provide multiple options for the networked production management of user plants in the future. A mobile TP170B operation panel is directly connected to the system's PROFIBUS network through the PROFIBUS 3-port connector on the ET200M interface template IM153 on the C or D device. Manually operate any C device or D device on the network so that The commissioning personnel can perform manual commissioning directly on the side of the device.


TP170B integrates the manual debugging screens of all A, C, and D devices on the production line, so one TP170B can complete the manual debugging of all devices. As for the system control software, the control program of B and E devices is completed by its own CPU224. A, C, D device control program is completed by WinAC Slot 412. Among them, the A device has two high-speed counting requirements, which are completed by two FM350-1 high-speed counting templates. There are two pressure PID adjustments in each D device. There are four PID adjustments in the system. In view of the high-speed instruction execution speed of Slot 412, the S7 software PID function block can fully meet the requirements.


An important part of the wire knitting machine control software is to complete the user's multiple process selection requirements. As shown in Figure 1, textile mills can set up production lines at will according to the technological requirements of their products. For example, you can purchase only one set of A, B, C, and D equipment and several E equipment to form a production line; or you can purchase one set of A, B, and C equipment, two sets of D equipment, and several E equipment to form one production line; or Buy 1 set of A equipment, 2 sets of B, C, and D equipment each.

Contemporary Cables
Contemporary Cables: Classic Aran Reimagined in Current Styles - Jody Long

by Jody Long


I love cable knitting and the sweaters that result.


This is a collection of patterns for twenty-one different projects, each of them interesting in their own way. As with most knitting books, patterns for women dominate, though two of the three men's patterns are particularly interesting! No children or babies in this one.


Measurements and all instructions are very clear, giving both US sizes for needles and metric. The description says medium to advanced knitters, but I didn't see anything too complicated. Cables are actually very easy!


The patterns diverge from traditional into some creative combinations and there are at least three of them that I'm looking forward to knitting for myself. Full color pictures of all the finished designs and extensive charts to show texture or crossover patterns.

Explanation of computer flat knitting rings


Computerized flat knitting machine is a kind of double needle plate tongue weft weaving loom. Its triangle installation is like a set of flat cams. The needles of the knitting needles can enter the grooves of the cams, and the triangles are moved to force the knitting needles to perform regular lifting activities in the needle grooves of the needle board, and then move through the hook and the tongue , You can knit the yarn into a knitted fabric. During the ascent of the knitting needle, the coil gradually withdraws from the hook, open the needle, and withdraw the needle from hanging on the needle bar; during the descending of the needle, the hook hooks the newly placed yarn and pulls it. Pull and bend to form a loop, and the restored loop will come out of the needle hook. The new loop will pass through the old loop and be connected in series with the old loop. Many knitted loops will form a knitted fabric.

Looping process: The process of knitting the yarn into fabric by the knitting needles of the flat knitting machine is called the looping process.The looping process can be divided into withdrawal, underlaying, banding, silence, looping, knockout, looping, and pulling. Wait 8 segments

Rewinding is to move the old coil in the needle hook to the needle bar to prepare for the laying of new yarn. In the process of withdrawing, the knitting needle rises from a lower point to a higher point, and the needle is in the withdrawing phase. After the withdrawing, the needle tongue is scraped by the loop.

Yarn insertion is to place the yarn on the needle tongue.After the unwinding is completed, the beginning of the knitting needle drops.Because of the common action of the yarn feeding mechanism, the yarn is placed on the needle hook through the yarn feeder under the guidance of the yarn guide. Underneath, above the tongue, so that when the knitting needle continues to drop, the hook can firmly hold the yarn.

Banding yarn is the process of introducing the yarn under the hook into the hook. This process is accomplished by relying on fabric descent.

Silence is to block the needle mouth so that the old loop of yarn placed on the new pad is separated by the needle tongue. After the process without yarn is completed, the yarn is accurately caught by the needle hook, and the knitting needle continues to drop.The old coil that fell on the needle bar slides along the needle bar toward the needle and moves to the lower part of the needle tongue. Effect, twist at the beginning about the axis of the needle tongue, when the needle is lowered again, the needle twists to cover the needle hook to block the needle mouth, the needle is lowered along the triangular task surface, and the newly placed yarn passes through the old loop, and The old coil also came out of the needle due to the effect of the pulling force.

The task of the looping stage is that after the old stitch comes out of the needle, the needle hook takes the newly placed yarn through the old stitch, and the knitting needle descends to pull the yarn into a new stitch.

Pulling is to make the new loop after the loop is tensioned, and the needle hook must not be taken off for the next loop weaving task. Pulling is to use the pulling mechanism to pull the old coil toward the back of the needle to reach the serious goal, and also pull the formed fabric out of the loop area.

Gathering process Gathering is one of the basic loop structures of knitted fabrics. It is a kind of organization that keeps the old loops without looping back or unlooping, and the knitting needles continue to loop, and the new and old loops are assembled together. On the flat knitting machine, two methods are used to make the trapping organization, one is the method without looping, and the other is the method without retracting.

The no-hoop method is to push one of the flat knitting machines or the two pressure needles of the front and back diagonally to a certain height. When the head is required to drive the triangle, the knitting needle rises to a higher point, and then descends to the silent stage, which is no longer lowered. The loop closes the tongue and hangs on the needle bar. At this time, the needle hook catches the newly placed yarn. When the machine head runs in the reverse direction to knit the next row of fabric, the knitting needle can rise to the extreme point or lower to the lowest point under the effect of the triangle. The new yarn constitutes the old loop hanging on the needle bar after the cantilever is withdrawn. Mergers form a trap after they are taken together.

The no-return method is also called fat flower tissue, which can only be woven on the fat knitting machine. The two-level fat knitting machine constitutes a parallel cluster, and the three-level fat knitting machine can constitute an interwoven cluster.

Crochet and Cauldrons
Vampire Knitting Club #3

Paranormal Cozy Mystery

Every family has annoying relatives; mine just happen to be undead.


My Grandmother, Agnes Bartlett, used to own Cardinal Woolsey’s knitting shop in Oxford then died and left her shop to me, without informing me that she wasn’t actually dead. She’s a vampire and part of the world’s strangest craft circle – the Vampire Knitting Club.


As you might imagine, this means she’s free to interfere in how I run the business that used to be hers. She’s trying to teach me to knit and it’s not going well. She’s also trying to teach me how to be a witch, since it turns out I’m from a long line of witches. Another tiny detail about my family that no one ever told me, along with the long-lost witch cousins I recently discovered.


But I’m learning. I’ve got my family spell book, my black cat familiar, some powers that sometimes scare me, and an interesting new group of friends.


My archaeologist parents are coming to visit and bringing me a gift I could do without.


So, to recap, I run a knitting shop and I can’t knit. I’m a beginning witch who can’t always control her cat, never mind her magic, and my love life is as tangled as the last sock I tried to knit. Oh, and for some reason, I keep getting involved in murder investigations. Good thing I have my vampire knitters to help sniff out clues.


At least I’ve finally hired the perfect assistant, a real demon with the crochet hook. Or is she too perfect?


Crochet and Cauldrons is the third book in the Vampire Knitting Club series of fun, paranormal cozy mysteries.






"I might have to meet a scary witch, but I wasn’t doing it without a lot of caffeine in my system.43% Crochet and Cauldrons"


Crochet and Cauldrons is book three in the Vampire Knitting Club series by Nancy Warren. It was another fun cozy mystery. 


Lucy has to deal with an ancient curse, an unknown demon, a cat thief, and many pretty boys. She was brave and determined. She is becoming more conformable with her life in Oxford and I like seeing her settle in. 


The mystery. Unfortunately this go around it was obvious to me who the demon was. I can’t understand how Lucy didn’t figure out. They’re where a lot of give aways. Thou I did still enjoy the mystery and everyone working to keep Lucy safe. 


We do get to meet a few new characters and Lucy’s group of friends expands.


Crochet and Cauldrons is an enjoyable read. Now onto the next one.

Review ~ Disappointing
Cat's Paws and Curses - Nancy Warren

Book source ~ Kindle Unlimited


American Lucy Swift is really enjoying running her grandmother’s knitting shop in Oxford. She never thought she would, but here she is. Of course, her grandmother may be dead, but she’s not dead-dead considering she’s a vampire. So Lucy has the benefit of her wisdom as well as that of the whole vampire knitting circle. Lucy has been holding a knitting circle nights right before Christmas so her customers can have a place to knit presents for family. But one evening, when the lights go out and one of the knitters is murdered, the murderer has to be in the same room. One of her knitters is a murderer! What?


I love this series because it’s cute, humorous (yes, even with a murder or two), and there’s the paranormal aspect with the knitting vampires and all. Plus, magic because Lucy is also a witch. But this one seemed a tad rushed to me. Maybe because it’s a short story instead of the usual length. It just seemed a bit lacking which is why I dropped the rating down from my usual. However, it’s still a nice mystery and I got to see Rafe and Ian. I wish Lucy would give Ian more of a chance. Rafe is ok, but she seems adamant that she will not be with a vampire, so Ian would be more her speed, even though he’s with law enforcement. Or maybe she needs to meet a witch instead. I’m curious where Lucy’s love life is heading. Looking forward to book 9.
