Abstract (en)

Inner guide system for tubular knitted fabrics, between the needle beds of the circular knitter and the take-off rollers, has two hollow tubes (20,21) fitted to the center housing (18) by struts (22,23). Two V-shaped units (24,25) have arms (28,29) with elbow extensions, to slide in the hollow tubes, so that the four extensions (26,27) and the two hollow tubes form the two rectilinear sections. A control gives a simultaneous and opposing movement to the two V-shaped structures from the center housing (18) to the two arms (28,29) and each V-shaped unit (24,25). The control handwheel (25) is mounted on the center housing (18). A gearing mechanism is within the housing (18), operated by the control handwheel (25), with a control tube parallel to the two hollow tubes (20,21) mounted at the two housing walls (31). Two bevel gears, at right angles to each other, are keyed to the control handwheel (25) and control tube. Two threaded spindles (36,37) project from the housing (18), with their threads in opposite directions, to be turned by the inner control tube to move the V-shaped components (24,25) in opposite directions. The control movements can also be through an electromotor, operated by remote control. Each strut (22,23) has two telescopic rods, where one rod (49) is mounted to the center housing (18) and the other rod (48) is attached to a hollow tube (20,21). The assembly can have a number of paired V-shaped components, with different peak angles fitted together.

Abstract (fr)

Le dispositif concerne le guidage interne d'un tricot tubulaire entre la fonture d'un métier circulaire et des cylindres d'appel. Il comprend un boîtier central de commande (18), une pièce (19) axiale de suspension du boîtier (18) et des éléments de guidage, avec deux portions rectilignes coplanaires, parallèles et symétriques par rapport à l'axe de la pièce axiale (19) et deux portions en V, chacune prolongeant les portions coplanaires avec une inclinaison par rapport au plan de celles-ci. De plus il comporte : a) deux tubes creux (20,21), fixés au boîtier central (18) par des entretoises (22,23) et deux éléments en V (24,25) , les deux branches (28,29) de chacun desdits éléments comportant des prolongements coudés (26,27), aptes à coulisser dans les deux tubes creux (20,21) , les quatre prolongements (26,27) et les deux tubes creux (20,21) constituant les deux portions rectilignes ; b) un ensemble de commande du déplacement simultané et antagoniste des deux éléments en V, commandé à partir du boîtier central (18) et relié aux branches (28,29) de chaque élément en V (24,25). <IMAGE>
