Title
(EN) PULL WIRE WITH COATED FIBERS
(FR) FIL DE TRACTION À FIBRES REVÊTUES
Abstract
(EN)
A method is provided for making a fiber wire having a fiber bundle core (504) and a polymer jacket (506). The method includes rotating a spool of fiber bundle about a first rotational axis to progressively unwind the fiber bundle from the spool. The fiber bundle includes a plurality of continuous synthetic fiber filaments. While the spool is rotated about the first rotational axis, the spool is simultaneously rotated about a second rotational axis to thereby twist the unwound fiber bundle about its longitudinal axis. The method further includes coating the twisted fiber bundle with a molten polymer, and permitting the molten polymer to cool to define a flexible outer jacket that encapsulates the twisted fiber bundle.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé de fabrication d'un fil de fibre ayant un coeur de faisceau de fibres (504) et une enveloppe de polymère (506). Le procédé comprend la rotation d'une bobine de faisceau de fibres autour d'un premier axe de rotation pour dérouler progressivement le faisceau de fibres à partir de la bobine. Le faisceau de fibres comprend une pluralité de filaments de fibres synthétiques continus. Pendant que la bobine tourne autour du premier axe de rotation, la bobine tourne simultanément autour d'un second axe de rotation pour tordre ainsi le faisceau de fibres déroulé autour de son axe longitudinal. Le procédé consiste en outre à revêtir le faisceau de fibres torsadées avec un polymère fondu, et à permettre au polymère fondu de refroidir pour définir une enveloppe externe souple qui encapsule le faisceau de fibres torsadées.
