Abstract: A device for retransporting a thread end of a take-up coil to a withdrawal tube of a spinning machine, includes a two-armed suction tube with a suction nozzle, the suction tube being pivotally mounted and being formed with a bend in a plane wherein it is pivotable, the suction tube having a longitudinally extending slot formed on the inside of the bend for passage of a thread therethrough and into the suction tube under suction, the suction tube having a suction-air flow path extending from the suction nozzle at an end of one of the suction-tube arms through the one suction-tube arm and through the other of the suction-tube arms to the end of the other suction-tube arm and therefrom through an air guidance part to a union for a negative-pressure suction source.
Abstract: Coil core magazine assembly for conical or cylindrical coil cores disposed mutually adjacent one another includes a coil core magazine, means for loading the magazine with coil cores, and means for removing coil cores from the magazine, the magazine having a plurality of axially parallel coil core holders disposed in a given plane and loadable with coil cores in axial direction of the coil cores, and a coil core feeding device operatively connected to the coil core holders for feeding the coil cores loaded in the coil core holders to the coil core removing means in a direction transverse to the axial direction of the coil cores.
Abstract: Apparatus for accommodating changing of bobbins on open-end spinning machines. Spooling devices are provided for joining a thread reserve section and a starting winding to an empty spool tube which is to be inserted in place of a completed bobbin. The spooling devices are constructed to form a starting winding of sufficient length to form a plurality of one-time piecing operations at a spinning station. A spool transfer device is provided for transferring a prepared spool with starting winding and reserve thread section into a bobbin holder. In certain preferred embodiments the spooling device is carried on a movable unit which travels along the spinning stations and includes an auxiliary bobbin for supplying the reserve and starting winding thread section. In other preferred embodiments, the spooling device is provided separate from the movable unit along the spinning machine and includes apparatus for forming and storing a plurality of pre-prepared bobbins.
