20_ Claims. (Cl. 223-60)
This invention relates to an apparatus for
to a pressing treatment, whilst at the same time
treating and shaping hollow or tubular textile
the articles are maintained for a su?icient period
goods, and more particularly stockings, which,
for the purpose of carrying out the treatment and
5 shaping, are mounted on moving forms, the said
treatment including essentially a pressing operation.
It is known to arrange pairs of pressing plates
on either side of the track followed by the forms
10 on which the articles to be pressed are mounted
and to move the individual plates of each pair
relative to one another and to the forms in such
in contact with the pressing elements.
A further object is to provide anqapparatus of
this kind which will not be unduly large'as com- 5
pared with the output obtained.
A still further object of the invention is to de
vise a'form of apparatus in which will be united
the advantages of the existing apparatus whilst I
avoiding the disadvantages thereof.
10
In the accomplishment of these and other ob
jects and advantages which will become apparent
as the description proceeds a method is employed
a manner that the articles mounted on the forms
are subjected to a pressure treatment between , which consists in mounting the articles under
15 the said plates. An essential condition for the
satisfactory operation of a machine of this known
kind-is that the forms are moved intermittently.
During the pressing operation between the pairs
of plates the forms require to be stationary, whilst
20 after the pressing plates have been lifted from
the forms the latter are again advanced.
Since machines ~of this kind are normally combined with other treating apparatus, such as
drying chambers and the like, it follows that the
movement through the additional apparatus must
25 also be intermittent, so that the overall length
of thecomplete machine is‘ comparatively large,
and above all the output of the machine is small
in relation to its size. These disadvantages are
treatment on continuously moving forms and sub- 15
jecting the articles thus mounted to a pressing
treatment by means of pressing elements, such _
as pairs of plates, which for the actual pressing
operation are moved together with the said forms
through the machine.
>
20
In the preferred embodiment ofthis invention,
the pressing plates are carried by two driving ele
ments which each traverse the machine over end
less tracks and are symmetrically arranged on
opposite sides of the track followed by the forms. 25
When the pairs of pressing plates enter the form
track the individual plates are conducted. for a
certain distance parallel to but spaced from the
form with which they are to engage and the
. 30 due solely to the intermittent movement of the plates are then pressed against the form. This 30
forms,
arrangement is particularly advantageous when
Machines have also been proposed/for the treat- ' the articles being treated are made of ?ne fabric
ment of stockings mounted on forms, wherein the such as arti?cial silk stockings, since it obviates
forms are moved continuously and the stockings
35 mounted thereon are subjected to a pressure
treatment between pairs of rollers. In this type
of apparatus the disadvantages arising from an
intermittent movement of the forms are avoided,
but on the other hand there is a further disad40 vantage due to the nature of this type of apparatus.
’
It has been found'in practice that the stockings or other articles whilst mounted on the forms
require to be subjected to a pressure treatment
4;, for a certain length of time in order to accom-
any strain on, and deformation of,- the fine arti
?cial silk fabric of the stocking which may be set 35
up even by the smallest movement on the part of
the form in relation to the pressing plates. Like
wisethe pressing plates when leaving the form
track are ?rst lifted evenly from the form and
then guided for a certain distance parallel to the 40
form before ultimately diverging for the return
movement to the initial point of treatment. Pref
erably for this purpose the plates are furnished
at their rear, taken in relation to the direction of
movement, with abutments which extend beyond '45
plish the requisite shaping and pressing of the
the pressing surface. These abutments move in
articles. In passing the forms having the articles mounted thereon between rollers, the time
pairs on to a wedge provided at the outlet end
of the apparatus and merge into a parallel guide
of treatment during which the articles are in
50 contact with the rollers, that is to say, during
which a pressure is exerted on the fabricyis ob-
viously short.
-
It is the primary object of the present invention
to provide means by which textile articles, such
55 as stockings, mounted on forms may be subjected
which causes the parallel movement of the plates
in spaced relation to the forms as above de- 50
scribed.
‘ ,
The drive for the moving forms preferably is
positively coupled with the drive for the plates.
The plates are mounted‘ on endless chains, the
path ofeach of which consists of two lengths as ‘
2
9,114,432 I
running parallel to each other, the one nearer
the forms being shorter than the other, so that
the chain sections on the parts of the tracks con
necting the two lengths are inclined outwardly
cated the pressing plates H. The particular
method of mounting the pressing plates is illus
trated by Figure 3. The pressing plate I4 is pro
vided at its center with an abutment l5 having
away from the form track. This arrangement is ’ a slot l6.
obtained by the special disposal of the guide
wheels and the ?xed guides for the endless
chains. It has the object of ensuring under all
circumstances that after the lifting of the press
10 ing plates from the forms there will be no fur
ther contact with the articles on the forms when
the pressing plates are de?ected from their
straight run through the machine.
The pressing plates are so mounted as to be
15 capable of a rocking movement in relation to
their supporting chains and also so as to be ca
pable of a reciprocatory movement across the
chains. This arrangement has the advantage of
causing each pressing plate to be so adjusted in
20 relation to the form with which it is engaged that
during the pressing operation it acts evenly on the
article, for example, the stocking, at all points.
Preferably each pressing plate is mounted on its
supporting chain mid-way of its width, for ex
25 ample, by means of a pin and slot connection,
flat springs being provided which bear against the
marginal zones of the plate for the purpose of
holding the plate resiliently in a certain neutral
position. It is, of course, also possible to employ
30 other constructions for the same purpose.
The invention is illustrated by way of example
in the accompanying drawings, in which:Figure 1 is an elevational view of one embodi- ‘
'ment of the machine according to the invention.
35 ‘ Figure 2 is a plan view of the apparatus shown
in Figure 1, partly in section. ,

method of mounting a pressing plate on its sup
porting chain.

,
Figure 5 illustrates on enlarged scale the op
eration which takes place at the leading-in end
45 \of the apparatus.
Figure 6 illustrates a machine embodying
modi?ed form of pressing plates.
Referring now to the drawings, there is pro
vided on the base I of the apparatus a frame 2
50 composed of pillars and supports.
In this frame
there are arranged two gearwheels 3 and l which
mesh with each other and are caused to rotate
by a suitable drive (not shown). On the shafts
of these gear wheels there are ?xed sprocket
55 wheels 5 and 6. The sprocket wheel 5 is con
nected by a driving chain 1 with a sprocket wheel
8, which is rigidly connected with a sprocket wheel
9, over which runs the chain l0 carrying the
pressing plates. A similar arrangement is pro
60 vided on the opposite side of the form'track.
Similar reference characters have been employed
to denote like parts.
The sprocket wheels 9 are: mounted on verti
cally disposed shafts H. The forms, which in
05 this embodiment are shown as upright, are
mounted on the chain l2 in any suitable man
ner, and the form track comprising the said chain
l2 and the forms I! moves in the direction of the
arrow P.
I
'
For the purpose of illustration the forms are
70
shown to consist of ?at solid metal. They may,
however, also be hollow and, if desired, heated
either directly or indirectly in any known manner.
On the chains III, which are disposed sym
76 metrically opposite to each other, there are 10
On the chain Hi there is situated a
corresponding bearing member l1 having a pin
l8 engaging in the slot IS. A ?at spring H,
which is bent about the free end of the abutment
I5 and two pins 20 in the bearing member, bears
with its two free ends against the edges of the
plate H for the purpose of holding the latter
resiliently in a, neutral or midposition. On
either side of the form track there are situated
guide faces 2|, along which the chains 10 move.
At the leading-in end of the apparatus, as shown
in Figure 5, there is also provided a special guide
22 which lies substantially parallel to but spaced
from the guide face 2| at this point. The press
ing plates M are provided at or near their lead
ing edges with outstanding lugs 40 having up 20
standing pins ll which, as the form is about to
enter into its effective position, are engaged by
the guide 22 to cause the pressing plate to swing
round againstthe action of the spring I9 into a
position in which it is parallel to the form track. 25
Each presser plate travels for a short distance
in this position parallel to the form track before
it, as shown in the case of the presser plate on
the right hand side of Figure 5, is pressed by its
spring I9 against the form and accordingly 30
against the article under treatment, for example,
the stocking.
I
The endless chains l0 are so mounted (by means
of the disposition of the gear wheels 9 and the
guides 2|) that the two parallel parts thereof are 35
of unequal length, that part A (see Figures 2 and
5) which is disposed nearer the form track being
shorter than the other part B and joining the
same through an outwardly diverging part C. It
will be apparent from Figure 5 that by reason of 40
this arrangement the pressing plates are able to
perform their turning movement at either end of
the apparatus without entering into contact with
the forms during this part of their movement.
The pressing plates are also provided at their 45
upper ends with abutments 23. As shown in Fig
ures 2 and 4, these abutments are situated at the
rear of the ‘pressing plates taken in relation to
the direction of movement of the form track. At
the outlet end of the machine there is provided 50
a wedge member 24, which merges into a par
allel guide 25. As the abutments 23 encounter
the wedge member 24, the rear ends of the press
ing plates are wedged apart, thereby maintain
ing the plates H in parallel relation to the forms 55
l3. This arrangement has the advantage of caus
ing the pressing plates I 4 to be lifted from
the forms and guided for a certain distance par
allel to the forms before they diverge outwardly
by reason of the inclined chain section C, as 60
illustrated in Figure 4.
As shown in Figure 6 the pressing plates ll may
also be shaped in accordance with the forms, the
foot portions 42, when the apparatus is to be used
for treating stockings for example, then assuming
a position within range ofthe preceding plate.
It will be understood that numerous embodi
ments of this invention are quite possible within
the meaning of the above description and the an
nexed claims, so that the specific embodiments
referred to in the above are intended merely to
be illustrative and not in a limiting sense.
