  • Patent number: 4728538
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for using the apparatus are provided for continuously applying a dot pattern of a non-slip composition to a plurality of garments. The apparatus includes a delivery unit for delivering the plurality of garments and a transfer unit for imprinting continuously the dot pattern in the plurality of garments. The transfer unit includes a transfer roller which basically is a screen in the form of a cylinder having a plurality of holes provided therein arranged in the dot pattern to be imprinted in the garments. A unit is provided for introducing the composition into the transfer roller. A further unit is provided for forcing the composition through the plurality of holes. A transfer belt is provided and is positioned adjacent the transfer roller and is adapted to continuously receive the dot patterns of the composition from the transfer roller and transfer them onto the garments delivered by the delivery unit.

  • Patent number: 4284400
    Abstract: There is disclosed a positive extraction mechanism for use in a textile molding apparatus preferably of the type having a female mold member and a male mold member. The mold members move into molding relationship with a fabric therebetween to form a cup-like article which is retained by one of the members. The positive extraction mechanism moves into intimate contact with the retaining mold member after the other mold member has been retracted. The extraction mechanism includes a plurality of pins which may be actuated by power means into engagement with the molded cup-like article. Each pin is spring biased away from the molded article so that the spring will retract its associated pin within the extraction mechanism upon removal of the power means. Upon retraction the molded article will leave the positive extraction mechanism. This occurs after the molded article has been carried away from the mold member.

  • Patent number: 4262049
    Abstract: A deposited sheet of foraminous material (e.g., elastomeric material such as a latex) having a lace-like configuration repeated over the extent of the sheet. This configuration includes relatively open mesh regions, and relatively closed solid petal regions. Portions of the configuration have a substantial plurality of perforated openings per unit area, with the open regions having a greater area of such openings per unit surface area than in the closed regions. At least some of the closed petal regions have a predetermined lesser thickness than the open mesh regions such that the lesser thickness closed regions have a greater surface of elastomeric material per unit area than in the open regions without having a corresponding greater amount of elastomeric material per unit area. Some of the openings bordering said closed regions may be of reduced cross section. Apparatus and method for manufacturing such a sheet are also described.
