Title
(EN) NONWOVEN FABRIC AND METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR MANUFACTURING SAME
(FR) ETOFFE NON TISSEE ET PROCEDE ET APPAREIL DE FABRICATION D'UNE TELLE ETOFFE
Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus for fabricating a unique nonwoven fabric which has the appearance of a woven fabric includes a supply station for parallel warp yarns, a support structure for orienting the parallel warp yarns into a cylindrical orientation, a weft yarn applicator for wrapping weft yarns around the cylindrically oriented warp yarns after an adhesive scrim has been overlaid onto the warp yarns, a heating station for activating the adhesive and a cooling station for setting the adhesive, and a cutter for severing the cylindrically formed fabric laminate so that it can be flattened and wrapped onto a take-up roller. The weft yarn applicator including a rotating drum wherein a plurality of spools of weft yarn material are mounted in circumferentially spaced relationship and a tensioner is provided for applying the weft yarn material around the warp yarns in a predetermined tension which may be the same as, greater than, or less than the tension in the warp yarns.

L'invention se rapporte à un appareil de fabrication d'une étoffe non tissée unique possédant l'apparence d'une étoffe tissée. Ledit appareil comporte une station d'alimentation pour les fils de chaîne parallèles, une structure de support conçue pour orienter les fils de chaîne parallèles de manière à leur donner une orientation cylindrique, un applicateur de fil de trame conçu pour appliquer les fils de trame autour des fils de chaînes orientés cylindriquement après la pose sur lesdits fils de chaîne d'une gaze adhésive, une station de chauffage conçue pour activer l'adhésif et une station de refroidissement conçue pour durcir l'adhésif, et un organe de coupe conçu pour couper le lamellé textile formé cylindriquement de sorte qu'il puisse être aplati et enroulé sur un cylindre enrouleur. L'applicateur de fil de trame comporte un tambour rotatif dans lequel une pluralité de bobines de matériau de fil de trame sont montées à distance les unes des autres sur la circonférence du tambour et un dispositif de mise sous tension est prévu pour appliquer le matériau du fil de trame autour des fils de chaîne avec une tension préétablie qui peut être identique, supérieure ou inférieure à la tension des fils de chaîne.
