Abstract (en)

[origin: DE19852794A1] Weft clamp system is set so that the operation of the actuator of at least one clamping unit is program controlled. The working of the clamping functions can be programmed freely. The working functions are controlled by piezo electric or electromagnetic or magnetic force systems. The working function control can also be pneumoelectric, hydroelectric or with an electromotor. The power and signals are carried by wires or a non-contact transmission to the actuator. Independent claims are also included for the following: (A) a weft yarn clamp where the first clamp unit (1a) is a stiff element with bend resistance, and the second clamp element (1b) is a piezo electric actuator (2); and (B) a controlled weft yarn feed and clamp unit (4) which is linked (10a) a programmed control (10) to feed and clamp the weft yarns at a gripper loom.

Steuerbare Schussfadenzubringer- und -klemmvorrichtung für Webmaschinen, wonach ein Klemmelement (1b) der Fadenklemme (1) Arbeitsfunktionen zum Zwecke des Klemmens und Freigebens eines Schussfadens (11) ausführt, ist dadurch gekennzeichnet, dass die Arbeitsfunktionen des Klemmelements (1b) programmgesteuert durch einen Aktuator (2) ausgeführt werden und dass der Ablauf der Arbeitsfunktionen frei programmierbar ist. Als Aktuatoren (2) kommen Elemente wie z.B. piezoelektrisch wirkende, elektromagnetisch wirkende, pneumoelektrisch oder hydroelektrisch wirkende oder ein Elektromotor in Betracht. <IMAGE>
