Title
(EN) SOCK TURNING DEVICE
(FR) APPAREIL À RETOURNER LES CHAUSSETTES
Abstract
(EN)
In a sock turning method and device, a sock is received and guided by a rod (2, 4) until it surrounds a set of articulated jaws (5, 6, 7). This set of articulated jaws is then spread apart to squeeze the open end of the sock between the jaws and the inner wall of a tube coaxial with the rod and surrounding the set of jaws. A sleeve mounted coaxial with the rod on the same side of the set of articulated jaws is moved axially through the opening formed between the spread apart jaws until the sleeve reaches the end of a sleeve axial stroke. Since the open end of the sock is squeezed between the spread apart jaws and the inner wall of the tube, axial movement of the sleeve causes partial turning of the sock. When the sleeve has reached the end of its course, a coaxial bushing having an inner gripping surface and mounted on the side of the set of articulated jaws opposite to the rod and sleeve is moved axially in the direction of the sleeve. Upon axial movement of the bushing, the inner gripping surface of the bushing grips the sock to slide this sock on the outer face of the sleeve and complete turning of the sock. After turning of the sock is completed, the sleeve, the bushing and the articulated jaws are returned back to their initial position. Finally, the sock is released and aspirated through a vacuum tube.

L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil à retourner les chaussettes. Une chaussette est insérée sur un cylindre (2, 4) et guidée par ce dernier, jusqu'à ce que ladite chaussette entoure un ensemble de mâchoires articulées (5, 6, 7). Cet ensemble de mâchoires articulées est ensuite écarté de façon à serrer l'extrémité ouverte de la chaussette entre les mâchoires et la paroi intérieure d'un tube coaxial au cylindre et entourant l'ensemble de mâchoires. Une gaine, montée de manière coaxiale par rapport au cylindre sur le même côté que l'ensemble de mâchoires articulées, est déplacée axialement dans l'ouverture formée entre les mâchoires écartées, jusqu'à ce que ladite gaine atteigne le terme d'une course axiale. L'extrémité ouverte de la chaussette étant serrée entre les mâchoires écartées et la paroi intérieure du tube, un mouvement axial de la gaine entraine un retournement partiel de la chaussette. Lorsque la gaine a atteint le terme de sa course, une bague coaxiale, dotée d'une surface intérieure adhérente et montée sur le côté de l'ensemble de mâchoires opposé au cylindre et à la gaine, est déplacée axialement en direction de la gaine. Suite à un mouvement axial de la bague, la surface adhérente de cette dernière agrippe la chaussette pour la faire glisser sur la face extérieure de la gaine et achever de la retourner. Une fois la chaussette retournée, la gaine, la bague et les mâchoires articulées reviennent à leur position initiale. La chaussette est finalement libérée et aspirée au travers d'un tube à vide.
