  • Patent number: 4718174
    Abstract: A template for cutting and folding furs is disclosed. The template is symmetrical with respect to the longitudinal seam of the skins or furs. The template has a removable central portion defined laterally by two segments or sides that are parallel to each other and parallel to the longitudinal seam between the skins, and transversely by segments or sides, one of which faces the tail of the skin which is aligned with the longitudinal axis of the template, along a cutting line having a curvature. The barycentre of the removable central portion is almost aligned with the transverse seam lines of the skins.

  • Patent number: 4445951
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a composite material in which layers of reinforcing filaments are stitched across with filaments of a thermoplastic polymer and then interposed between sheets of the same thermoplastic polymer as that used to stitch across the reinforcing filaments. The resultant stack is then heated under pressure for sufficient time for the thermoplastic polymer to impregnate the reinforcing filaments whereupon the thus formed composite is cooled under compression in order to avoid any distortion thereof.
