We analyzed the influence of silk reeling conditions on reeling tension. Our aim was to achieve low-tension production of raw silk by using a multipurpose silk reeling machine that could measure reeling tension continuously with a load cell sensor. Decreasing the silk reeling speed and increasing the cocoon cooking time and reeling water temperature effectively reduced the reeling tension. In addition, by simplifying the thread guide, we were largely able to decrease the reeling tension in comparison with that of a conventional silk reeling machine.
