Abstract: An apparatus (2) for removal of dried furs from pelting boards (8) upon which the fur during the drying process has been fixed. The apparatus removes furs from the pelting boards (8) in an upright position that are successively supplied in upright position, and which at a wide end of the pelting boards are fixed in fixing holes in a top plate of a drying cart (6) in such a way that the upright pelting boards (8) with furs are in transverse and longitudinal rows. The apparatus (2) includes a conveying tunnel (4); a guide for guiding a longitudinal side of the drying cart; a transverse upper guide (14); a secondary guide (16, 18); a primary laterally displaceable lift (30) for clamping a pointed end of the furs; and a secondary lift (50).
Abstract: In connection with the tumbling of the bodies of killed furred animals, a tumbler (2) has a cavity (21) between A filling opening (20) and A delivery opening (26) that is divided into a number of sections (30, 32) to which the bodies are transferred by a conveyor unit (36) that extends through the tumbler (2), combined with a discharge/recycling arrangement (28) for individual and controlled discharge of the bodies from the tumbler. The conveyor unit (36) also has a bottom section with a worm conveyor for recirculation of the supply of sawdust to the respective sections. The tumbler (2) can be emptied and filled without having to stop operations, and is suitable for use for tumbling of pelts with the leather side outermost or with the fur side outermost, so that the tumbler replaces two or three tumblers which normally are found in a pelt processing plant.

Abstract: In the process of manufacturing furs, the pelt (6) is dried on a peltingboard (2), where it is stretched to an optimum length and fastened to the board by slipping a sleeve-like device (8) over the pelt so tightly that it stops the pelt from sliding back from it tightened position.
Abstract: A process for producing fur garments, trimmings, and other miscellaneous accessories involving one or more strips of fur to produce a spiraled, feathery textured effect. The invention includes garments, trimmings and accessories made by the inventive process.
Abstract: A fabric having a furry surface comprising an elongated strip of a hair-coated skin of a fur-bearing animal, said strip having a hair-free body portion and a hair-bearing portion extending the length of the strip at a lower part thereof such that the hair extends from said lower part substantially in or adjacent to a single plane; and a non-furry thread of reinforcing material sewn into and extending the length of said hair-free body portion. The invention provides a fabric having improved strength. Also provided are methods of manufacturing the fabric and sewn strips of improved strength.
Abstract: An improved dry cleaning machine of the type utilizing powdered cleaning agents and having a rotating drum. Such machines have a shroud which completely surrounds the rotating drum and the shroud is connected to a collector and to the intake of an air blower. The draperies, furs, or the like are to be cleaned are rotated in the drum with the powdered cleaning agent for a predetermined amount of time after which the air blower is turned on and the cleaning agents are evacuated from the drum and deposited in the collector. The improved machine has a plurality of spring loaded plates over various groups of openings through the side of the drum.
Abstract: Cleaning drapes, furs or other objects by the aid of powdered and/or granular cleaning agents involves a two part operation. During the first part of the cycle, the material to be cleaned and the cleaning agent are tumbled together in an oscillating drum. During the second part of the cycle, the cleaning agent is drawn off by vacuum. Tumble vanes in the drum are apertured whereby the vanes themselves serve as effluent conduits. Interior baffles in the tumble vanes keep the powdered and/or granular cleaning agent in the drum while the effluent conduits remain open. An efficient removal of the used cleaning agent is accomplished since the material cleaned cannot block all the effluent conduits.
