Banana Fibre - An Overview
Jan 27, 2016

Presented by Mr. Koushik Das on 27th Jan, 2016

Banana is a well known horticultural crop grown for fruit all over the world. Banana pseudo-stems are dumped as waste at the farm level in India due to disposal problem. The  fibre has similar properties like jute, mesta, coir etc. and also attains some extra advantages like low density, appropriate stiffness, high disposability and bio degradable. It can be processed in jute spinning system to produce various technical and diversified yarn or fabrics. The fibre may provide livelihood to poor farmers by using as a various diversified product like handicrafts.

Development of Jute Based Composite Material using Unsaturated Polyester Resin
Jan 20, 2016

Presented by Dr. Md. Safikur Rahman, Deputy Director, IJIRAon 20th January 2016.

Production procedure of jute fibre reinforced thermoset composite using jute in different forms was presented. Jute in the form of cut jute fibre and non-woven was as reinforced. It was observed that jute non- woven is comparatively appropriate for making composite.

Root Cause Analysis of Quality Deterioration of Jute Fibre
Jan 13, 2016

Presented by Mr. A. K. Nandi on 13th Jan, 2016

The presentation discussed about the present status of Raw Jute production (quality wise), domestic and overseas market scenario. It also covers rice and wheat production trend along with jute to estimate the domestic demand. The focus has been given on retting of jute and inferior quality fibre production due to scarcity of water. In order to grasp the export and jute diversified product market it is essential improve quality retting technique with a lesser amount of water.

Studies on Estimation of Threshold Breaking Strength Required in Warp-way, Weft-way and Seam Direction of Jute Bags of Specific Capacity
Jan 6, 2016

Presented by Mr. Palash Paul on 6th January 2016.

A technical presentation was made by Shri Palash Paul, Scientist IJIRA on his recent work on “Studies on Estimation of Threshold Breaking Strength Required in Warp-way, Weft-way and Seam Direction of Jute Bags of Specific Capacity”. The project was jointly sponsored by the National Jute Board and Indian Jute Mills Association. Shri Paul mentioned in his presentation that the project team followed three-way approaches; kinematics, drop test and stress-strain analysis to determine minimum breaking strength required in three major directions of a standard B. Twill jute bag. The study concluded that minimum requirement of warp-way, weft-way and seam direction breaking strength of a standard B. Twill bag is 100 kgf, 100 kgf and 37 kgf respectively with standard specimen size and test parameters.

Surface modification of Jute fibre for improvement in interface characteristics of composites
Dec 30, 2015

Presented by Mr. Debkumar Biswas on 30th December 2015.

Interface characteristics of a composite play vital role in determining the property realization of the ultimate composite products. Natural fibre reinforced both thermoset and thermoplastic composites have often represented issues of incompatibility between matrix and reinforcement due to their dissimilar functional characteristics. Over the years different approaches have been taken to enhance interfacial adhesion among natural fibre based reinforcing materials to polymeric matrix. The presentation envisages a comprehensive summary of developments in this direction.

IMPROVEMENT IN PRODUCTIVITY AND QUALITY OF JUTE BAGS
Dec 23, 2015

Presented by P K Choudhury on 23rd December 2015

Importance of Sack Sewing and Finishing Deptt. in the jute mills has been much realized by the industry in 1980.This is a highly labor intensive and low productive area. As desired by the expert committee and requested by jute mills IJIRA undertook the first project of its kind in the same year on improvement of productivity in bag manufacture. IJIRA ‘s recommended methodology in this regard for  replacing overhead sewing system by Herakle was accepted and adopted by the industry which brought revolution to this sector where production was increased by about 500%.

 Since then IJIRA has been doing extensive R & D work for this sector and came out with success. Many of them have been implemented by the jute mills. Few of such important works are worth mention like ,improvement of seam strength, methodology of calculating seam strength, development of hemless bag, introduction of  combined herakle  & safety sewing m/c, conceptualize on development of automatic bag making machine, development of 50 kg carrying capacity food grain jute bag etc. Various methods were also devised for improving quality and reduction of wastes in sack sewing and finishing sector of jute industry.
