  • Patent number: 9328437
    Abstract: Apparatus for the intermediate storage of two band-like weft materials (1, 21) for a weaving machine (3), with two storage containers (7, 27) in which respectively a U-shaped loop (12, 22) of a weft material (1, 21) can be formed. Machine elements (14, 34) for the application of tensile forces (15, 35) onto the weft material (1, 21) in the inner space (9, 29) of the respective storage container (7, 27) are present. The inner spaces (9, 29) of the two storage containers (7, 27) respectively orient one of their two narrow sides (10, 30) toward one another. Deflection elements (16, 36) are respectively arranged on the storage container (7, 27) in such a manner so that the respective weft material (1, 21) can be supplied to the inner space (9, 29) in a region (17, 37) that lies closer to that one of the two narrow sides (11, 31) of this inner space (9, 29), which is not oriented toward the inner space (9, 29) of the respective other storage container (7, 27).
