  • Patent number: 10920350
    Abstract: A felting needle has a working part that extends lengthwise along a part of the longitudinal extent thereof. The needle has a cross-sectional area which extends in the radial and circumferential directions of the felting needle and forms the cross-sectional area of the working part for much of the length thereof and at least one barb which penetrates into the working part which is formed by an incut running from the outer surface of the working part towards the interior of the needle. The needle includes at least one bulge which projects beyond the circumferential surface of the felting needle in the working part thereof. The bulge extends lengthwise only along a part of the working part and has volume constituents that do not belong to the barbing bead of the barb. The barb adjoins the outer surface of the bulge lengthwise along the felting needle.

  • Patent number: 8458870
    Abstract: A needle (15) for a textile machine, in particular a felting needle or fork needle. A working section (17) extends along a longitudinal axis (16) and has a needle point (18). Adjoining the working section (17) are a lower shank section (20) and an upper shank section (25), both said shank sections extending coaxially with respect to each other along the longitudinal axis (16). Adjoining the upper shank section (25), there is provided a needle foot (30) that has a holding means (32) extending in a straight line in a transverse direction (31) transversely to the longitudinal axis (16). The diameter (E) of the upper shank section (25) is both greater than the diameter (D) of the lower shank section (20) and greater than the mean width of the holding means (32).

  • Publication number: 20120263928
    Abstract: For the production of spatial textile articles (12) a base material with two or more layers is used, the two layers (16, 17) of said material exhibiting at least locally different shrinkage potentials. Then, during a suitable process, the shrinkage potential is released fully or in part due to thermal action, other physical action or chemical action, thus causing a spatial arching of the starting material and, in doing so, resulting in the manufacture of the desired textile article (12).

  • Patent number: 8281477
    Abstract: A semi-automatic loader for needle boards (2) includes a filling device (51)that presents felting needles (17) arranged at a ratio that is consistent with the ratio of holes of a needle board. A machine operator can then grasp the felting 5 needles (17) by use of a multiple collet chuck (45) and set them in groups in the rows of holes of the needle board (2). This provides a loading method featuring extremely high productivity.

  • Patent number: 8245373
    Abstract: A needle holder 45 for a textile machine comprising a needle board (46), in which are provided—on an upper side (44)—several grooves (48) extending parallel to each other. Arranged along each groove (48), there are several bores (51) at a distance from each other and completely extending through the needle board (46).

  • Patent number: 8245372
    Abstract: A needle (15) for a textile machine, in particular, to a felting needle or a fork needle. A working section (17) extends along a longitudinal axis (16) and has a needle point (18). Adjoining the working section (17) are a lower shank section (20) and an upper shank section (25), both being arranged so as to extend coaxially relative to each other along the longitudinal axis (16). Adjoining the upper shank section (25), a needle foot (30) is provided, said needle foot comprising a holding means (32). The holding means (32) extends in a transverse direction (31) and comprises two legs (38, 39), said legs extending from the longitudinal axis (16) and away from each other.

  • Patent number: 7798325
    Abstract: A wedge-shaped receptacle (9) is provided for packaging felting needles (8). The wedge shape is configured in such a manner that the felting needles lie in the receptacle in a mutual lateral engagement, that is, they are held approximately parallel to one another and they firmly clamp one another without their tips abutting against the receptacle body. This, on the one hand, results in a particular protection of the felting needles (8) during transportation and, on the other hand, results in a simple handling with the lowest danger of injuries.

  • Patent number: 7114226
    Abstract: A needle (1) according to the invention serves for the after-treatment, particularly after-needling of flat textile products, particularly for roughening of the product surface. The needle (1) is of fully symmetrical construction with respect to the central longitudinal axis (11); this applies particularly also to its barbs. The needle gauge is at least 46 and the barb depth is 0.02 mm at the most. The needle ensures a gentle, protective operation and the making of particularly fine textiles.

  • Patent number: 6233797
    Abstract: A transition part is provided for a felt needle between the clamping part and the working part, which transition part is designed as elongated, narrow truncated cone. The length of this transition part is at least as long as twice the length of the working part. As a result, a very narrow transition region is formed, which has little tendency to pull out and accumulate fibers from the fibrous web. Should fiber deposits still form, these can be removed easily.
