  • Patent number: 5016678
    Abstract: A double-layer fabric for the sheetforming section of a papermaking machine which is referred to as a sheet forming fabric or a dewatering fabric consists of an upper layer (1) of transverse threads (3) and a lower layer (2) of transverse threads (4) and (8) which are interwoven with a single system of longitudinal threads (5). Successive transverse threads (4, 8) of the lower layer (2) form pairs and within each pair the lowest points (7) of the transverse thread floats (6) are in alignment. The lowest point (7) of the float of the one transverse thread (4) of a pair is offset from the center of the float (6) in the direction opposite to the direction in which the lowest point (7) of the float (6) of the other transverse thread (6) is offset.

  • Patent number: 4776373
    Abstract: A fabric for the sheet forming section of a papermaking machine comprising two layers of transverse threads and longitudinal threads interwoven with both layers of transverse threads. Both the paper side and the running side have a transverse structure, and the number of transverse threads in the upper layer is twice as high as that in the lower layer. The longitudinal threads interweave twice in each repeat with the upper layer and with the lower layer. Interweaving with the upper layer is effected one time with a transverse thread laying directly above a transverse wire of the lower layer and the other time with a transverse thread disposed between and above two transverse threads of the lower layer.

  • Patent number: 4759391
    Abstract: A papermachine fabric for the production of tissue paper or porous batts has a two layer fabric comprised of a fine upper fabric layer and a coarser lower fabric layer. Both fabric layers have a large open area. The two fabric layers are firmly interconnected so that the upper fabric layer exhibits depressions at the sites of interweaving which are distributed in the manner of a pattern. The papermachine fabric is especially suited as an embossing fabric for after drying the paper web coming from a sheet forming fabric or as a second sheet former of a twin wire former.

  • Patent number: 4739803
    Abstract: A fabric for the sheet forming section of a papermaking machine is comprised of an upper and a lower layer of transverse threads interwoven with longitudinal threads. The number of transverse threads in the upper layer is twice as high as that in the lower layer. Within each weave repeat each longitudinal thread is interwoven two times with the upper layer of transverse threads. The transverse threads of the upper layer and the longitudinal threads form crimps disposed in the paper plane. First transverse threads in the upper layer form crimps reaching up to the paper plane which are supported in a crimp saddle of a longitudinal thread, and second transverse threads in the upper layer alternating with the first transverse thread form crimps reaching up to the paper plane which are supported by two adjacent longitudinal threads one of which ascends from the fabric interior to the paper plane while the other one descends from the paper plane into the fabric interior.

  • Patent number: 4728530
    Abstract: A method for mending a damaged area in a papermachine fabric includes filling the defective area with a photosensitive resin, irradiating the defective area with ultraviolet light through a first mask having a multiplicity of light impervious dots in order to crosslink the irradiated regions and rinsing away the non-crosslinked regions of the photosensitive resin. The patch produced in this way is firmly bonded to the fabric of the papermachine fabric and also has a permeability sufficient for dehydration of the paper pulp.

  • Patent number: 4702952
    Abstract: A sheet forming fabric with reinforced margins is provided on its backing side with a fabric strip in the marginal regions. The fabric strip can have a double layer structure with transverse threads arranged at least partially in pairs one over the other and with longitudinal threads. The fabric strip has a pronounced longitudinal filament structure on the backing side and is fastened to the fabric by stitching. The sewing thread takes the place of a longitudinal thread of the fabric strip previously removed from or omitted during weaving of the fabric.

  • Patent number: 4676369
    Abstract: A spiral link belt for the manufacture of paper has a multiplicity of mutually parallel helices with the windings of successive helices intermeshing in the manner of a zipper, and pintle wires are inserted into the channels formed by the meshing windings. The belt edges are covered by a protective cover consisting of a fabric wrapped about the belt edges and fastened to the spiral link belt. The protective cover can be a double-layer fabric and can have a seven or eight harness weave in which the longitudinal threads pass over four or five transverse threads or pairs of transverse threads.

  • Patent number: 4649074
    Abstract: A papermachine fabric comprises a spiral link belt covered with a sheet of non-woven fabric with the fiber ends being entangled with the elements of the spiral link belt. The non-woven fabric is bonded to the spiral link belt by a multiplicity of fine high pressure fluid jets. In the manufacture of the papermachine fabric the fluid jets are preferably arranged in a predetermined pattern which is produced by interposing a sheet with apertures arranged according to said pattern between the fluid nozzles and the non-woven fabric.

  • Patent number: 4463782
    Abstract: A shedding apparatus for the circular weaving of multi-harness fabrics includes a plurality of heddle frames for weaving a multi-ply screen of the type suitable for use with a paper making machine. Each heddle frame has a warp wire from each fabric half drawn therethrough and a divider wire is located between the heddle frames and the reed. The divider wire extends across the entire width of the fabric with all of the warp wires of the upper fabric half extending above the wire divider and all of the warp wires of the lower fabric half extending beneath the wire divider so that upon weaving of one fabric half the divider wire is raised or lowered so that the warp wires of the other fabric half are urged away from the shed by the wire divider. A compensator rod may be provided between the heddle frames and the warp beam to compensate for the tension placed on warp wires due to different path lengths for the warp wires as caused by the wire divider.
