  • Patent number: 6708592
    Abstract: A chopper for chopping fibers or fiber strands having a back up roll and a blade roll containing blades that work against a peripheral surface of the back up roll and a method of using is disclosed. The chopper has a number of improved features for reducing the frequency of long fibers or long fiber strands and fuzz from getting into the chopped product. The chopper can have one or any combination of the improvements. The improvements include a strand guide located at least two feet up stream of the chopper, a first starting roll for starting a new strand that runs on a fluid bearing that can be adjusted to control the RPM of the first starting roll, a mount for a roll that runs against the peripheral surface of said back up roll, a strand guide insert for reducing fuzz generation and for preventing fuzz from getting into the product, and a deflector plate for catching and deflecting chopped strands thrown off the back up roll into a chopped strand product chute.

  • Publication number: 20040011172
    Abstract: A method of automatic in-line forming of a material stack comprising the steps of feeding a base in sheet form or from a roll to a predetermined position, simultaneously feeding a first layer from a first roll for placement on one side of the base in sheet form and a second layer from a second roll for placement on the opposite side of the base in sheet form. The base, the first layer from the first roll, and the second layer from the second roll are moved together to a cutting station and are advanced a predetermined length. The first layer and the second layer are cut together to the predetermined length to form the desired stack, with the base between the first and second layers. In another aspect, the invention comprises apparatus for automatic in-line forming of a material stack comprising a main frame, a conveyor on the main frame for feeding a base material. A first layer of material is fed from a first roll onto one surface of the base material.
