Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR THE MANUFACTURE OF TEXTIL FABRICS
(FR) tissus et fabrication de tissus
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A fabric is disclosed which comprises crossing yarns (36, 40), which can be the warp and the weft of a woven fabric, and in which at their crossing points, or nodes, the yarns are welded to one another. Apparatus for welding the crossing yams by heat and by pressure is also disclosed. The apparatus in one form comprises a head (38) which feeds out a weft yarn (40) as the head crosses a number of warp yarns (36). An acoustic horn (42) and anvil (30) are provided for welding the nodes together immediately after the weft (40) has been fed out. The anvil is serrated to provide sloping supporting surfaces (32) and buttress surfaces (34) against which the yarn (36) is pressed by the yarns (40) as the horn passes over each yarn (36).
(FR)L'invention concerne un tissu comprenant des fils croisés (36, 38), qui peuvent être la chaîne et la trame d'un tissu tissé, et dans lesquels, au niveau de leurs points de croisement, ou nœuds, les fils sont soudés les uns aux autres. L'invention concerne également un appareil de soudure des fils croisés par la chaleur et la pression. L'appareil dans un mode de réalisation comprend une tête (38) qui alimente un fil de trame (40) tandis que la tête croise un certain nombre de fils de chaîne (36). Un cornet acoustique (42) et une enclume (30) sont disposés pour souder les nœuds les uns aux autres immédiatement après la sortie de la trame (38). L'enclume est striée pour constituer des surfaces supports inclinées vers le bas (32) et des surfaces de contrefort (34) contre lesquelles le fil (36) est comprimé par les fils (38) lorsque le cornet passe au-dessus de chaque fil (36).
