atented' `luly 20, '1948 TWISTIN G MACHINE Robert J. Bartholomew, Philadelphia, Pa., assignor to Fletcher Works Incorporated, Philadelphia, Pa., a corporation of Pennsylvania Application July 29, 1947, Serial No. 764,329
9 Claims. (Cl. 57-58) This invention relates to twisting machines. and more particularly to su-ch machines oi' the type whichl are adapted to put two turns of twist into a yarn, whether in the form of a roving, thread, or other strand, for each revolution of the spindle.
Various machines have heretofore been proposed for this purpose, but none of these have proven wholly satisfactory. This has been due, in part, to the failure to provide a machine capable of operating continuously at high speed. Some of the difficulties have also arisen because of the failure to make proper provision for tensioning the yarn during the twisting.
It is the principal object of the present invention to provide a twisting machine which will be simple in construction, sturdy and reliable, and capable of continuous operation at high rates of speed.
It isl a further object of the present invention to provide a twisting machine which is capable of use with a wide variety of sizes and types of yarn packages from which the yarn to be twisted is delivered. i
It is a further object of the present invention to provide a twisting machine having improved provisions for maintaining the yarn package in stationary position as the yarn is taken therefrom.
It is a further object of the present invention to provide a twisting machine having improved provisions for guiding the yarn during the twisting operation.
It is a further object of the present invention to provide a twisting machine having limproved control of the tension ot the yarnand in which a predetermined xed tension may be applied together with a variable tension adjustable from the exterior.
It is a further object of the present invention to provide a. twisting machine which may be easily threaded when required.
Other objectsand advantageous features of the invention will be apparent from the speciilcation and claims.
The nature and characteristic features of the invention will be more readily understood from the following description, taken in connection with the accompanying drawings forming part hereof, in which: A
Figure 1 is a vertical central sectional view showing a twisting machine in accordance with the present invention;
Fig. 2 is a top or plan view thereof; and
Fig. 3 is a fragmentary vertical sectionalv view illustrating a follower which may be employed withthe machine.
It should, of course, be understood that the description and drawings herein are illustrative merely, and that various modifications and changes vmay-be made in the structure disclosed without departing from the spirit of the invention.
Referring more particularly to the drawings, it will be seen that the twisting machine therein illustrated includes a vertical spindle III supported in any desired and usual manner (not shown) and having secured on the exterior of the tapered upper end thereof avwhirl or driving pulley II which is adapted for driving engagement by a belt I2 in the customary manner. The upper portion of the pulley I I is provided with a shoulder I3, of reduced diameter, to which' a y disk Il of light weight sheet material is secured. The
ily disk I4 is of non-magnetic material, such as aluminum.
The fly disk I4 preferably has a yarn guide tube I5 secured thereon, the guide tube I5 being made of light non-magnetic material, such as aluminum or stainless steel. .Diametrically opposed with respect to the tube I5 on the ily disk I4, a balancing weight is provided which may consist of another tube 15a of the same character as the tube I5. i
At the upper end of the whirl or pulley il a bushing I6 is inserted and heldin fixed position therein. The Vbushing I6 is provided with'a central downwardly extending opening Il from which an inclined downwardly extending passageway I8 is provided through the bushing I6 and upper part of thedriving pulley II. The passageway IB terminates below the ily disk I4 and above the portion of the pulley I I, with which the belt I2 engages. f t
The frame (not shown) of the machine preferably is provided with a belt guard I 9 for preventing any drag on the yarn by air currents from the belt I2.
The bushing I6 has mounted thereon the hub of a ball bearing 20, the outer ring or raceway of the bearing being mounted within a yarn package supporting base 2| The bearing 20 permits of relative rotary movement of the spindle III/and driving l pulley II with respect to the base 2I. The yarn package supporting base 2| is preferably of flat, substantially cylindrical shape, and is made of non-magnetic material, such as wood or synthetic plastic material. The base 2I 'has inserted therein a plurality of circumierent'ially disposed magnets 22 of high intensity magnetic material, three magnets equally spaced preferably being employed for purposes to be explained.
On the upper face of the base 2|, a yarn package mounting plate 23 is provided having an upwardly extending projection 24, the exterior surface of which is of suitable shape for the reception of the yarn package C. Within the interior of the base 2|, a yarn guide 25 is provided, preferably of porcelain or other suitable hard and wear-resistant material, for guiding the yarn. The guide 25 is preferably located immediately above the upper end of the opening |1 and at the lower end of a funnel shaped opening 26 formed in the base 2|.
The yarn package mounting plate 23 is pref-v erably provided with a central opening 30 within which a tensioning device 3| may be mounted for use with certain types of yarn, the tensioning device illustrated consisting of flat spring material, shaped to provide converging and diverging tensioning arms 32 between which the yarn passes and capable of adjustment to apply the desired tension to the yarn.
The yarn package mounting plate 23 is preferably of smaller diameter than the base 2| to provide a ledge 33 on the base 2| for the reception of a hollow shielding cylinder of nonmagnetic material. The cylinder 35 is preferablyl transparent and for this purpose may be made of a suitable synthetic plastic such as an acrylic resin, but may also be made of aluminum or non-transparent synthetic plastic material. The shielding cylinder 35 is preferably chamfered at the upper and lower end portions thereof, as at 34, to facilitate the passage of the yarn thereover, and particularly as it leaves the guide tube I5. The provision of the chamfered end portions 34 at both ends obviates the necessity for distinguishing between the ends of the cyllnder 35 when it is mounted on the base 2l.
A guide block 31, preferably also of suitable non-magnetic material, is mounted above the projection 24 and has a funnel-shaped interior opening 36 for purposes to be explained.
The upper end of the tube of the yarn package C or other interposed element serves as a support for a cap 4D, a groove 4| being provided in the interior of the cap 46 for engagement with the upper end of the yarn package C. The cap preferably has a downwardly extending skirt portion 42, the lower terminal end of which preferably extends below the upper terminal end of the cylinder 35 and is spaced inwardly therefrom for guiding and retaining the yarn. 'I'he exterior surface of the cap 40 is preferably finished so as not to obstruct or abrade the yarn during the twisting.
Mounting in the interior of the cap 40, a guide tube 43 is provided which is adapted to extend downwardly within the interior of the yarn package C and within the opening 36 in the guide block 31. At the upper end of the cap 40 and projecting thereabove, a tubular yarn guide 44 is provided, also preferably of porcelain or other suitable hard and wear-resistant material, and a tensioning ring 45, preferably of like material, is disposed thereabove. The ring 45 is held in position by a tensioning rod 46 which has an upwardly extending portion 41, and a downwardly extending portion 48, with a frusto-conical enlargement 49 therebetween. The enlargement 43 is adapted to engage the upper surfaces of the ring 45.
The upper portion 41' of the tensioning rod 46 serves for the reception of one or more small weights 39 of ring shape, if desired, for adjusting the tension. The location of the tensioning rod 46 and the accessibility of the upper portion 41 thereof permits of ready adjustment of the yarn tension from the exterior. The lower portion 48 of the rod extends downwardly through the yarn guide 44, and within the upper portion of the guide tube 43 and serves to hold the rod 46 in position. The frusto-conical portion 49 aids in permitting the tension rod 46 to maintain its alinement.
The yarn from the yarn package C preferably has a flat tension ring 38 of non-magnetic material carried thereon. The ring 38 facilitates the withdrawal of the yarn by applying a tension to overcome the irregularities of the winding of the yarn or the yarn package C and also prevents the yarn from being caught beneath the cap 40. The ring 38 is restrained by the cylinder 35.
A plate 50 is provided of non-magnetic material, and is disposed so that its upper surface is level with or slightly below the terminal ends of the guide tubes I5. The plate 50 may be supported in any suitable manner by frame of the machine (not shown) and has secured thereto, at the lower portion thereof, a plurality of magnets 5| of high intensity magnetic material. The magnets 5| are equally spaced in a circular arrangement and are radially disposed with respect to the magnets 22. The magnets 5| and the magnets 22 are of complemental polarity and serve to restrain and hold the base 2| and the parts carried thereby against rotation. By the use of three sets of magnets, with their corresponding disposition of supporting and restraining forces, any tendency of the base 2| to rock, sway or hunt is obvlated and undesired interference of the lines of flux from the magnets is avoided.
The mode of operation of the twisting machine in accordance with the present invention will now be pointed out.
The winding mechanism (not shown) ls operated, and upon rotation of the whirl or driving pulley by the belt |2 the fly disk I4 is rotated with respect to the base 2|. The yarn, drawn from the yarn package C, passes through the ring 36 which rides upwardly and downwardly with the yarn, thereby compensating for the variations in tension arising from the irregularities of the winding of the yarn package C. The yarn passes around the lower end of the skirt portion 42 of the cap 40, and then upwardly between the skirt portion 42 and the cylinder 35. The yarn then passes upwardly across the upper surface of the cap 40, revolving laround the center provided by the tubular yarn guide 44. The yarn, upon its envtry into the yarn guide tube 44, has tension imparted thereto by the ring 45 and the tension rod 46. The yarn then passes downwardly within the tubular yarn guide 44 and the guide tube 43 and through the opening 36 in the guide block 31 and the guide 25, and'through openings |1 and I8, and beneath the fly disk |4, thence upwardly through the guide tube l5, where it balloons about the exterior of the cylinder 35 in its passage to the guide (not shown) above the cap 40.
The base 2| is held against rotation and against rocking, swaying and hunting by the magnetic attraction between the magnets 22 and the magnets 5|.
The cylinder 35 prevents undesired air currents around the yarn package C and prevents any entanglement of the portion cf the yarn being drawn from the yarn package C with the portion of the 44Min ndevice 3| to which access may be had upon ref moval of the yarn package C. Insome instances it is desirable to adjust the tension 'from the exterior, particularly to regulate'the ballooning of the yarn after lt leavesrtheyarnt guide tube Il.
The tension rod'46 is' particularly advantageous for this purpose since the eilective weight thereof, transmitted to the ring 45 may be readily varied as desired. l l l As illustrated in Fig. 3, the tension rod 44 may be replaced,`for certain types of yarn and for certain speeds of operation, bya yarn follower l5. The yarn follower 55 includes an eye portion Il of c shape and of porcelain orother wear-resistant material. The eye portion C is carried above the cap 40 and outwardly with respect to the guide 44 on a supporting wire'hthe lower end of the wire 51 extending downwardly within and below the guide 44. e
In the use of the yarn follower 55 the yarn from the yarn package C passes upwardly as `before from within the cylinder 35, then upwardly through the eye portion 5B and downwardly through the guide 44, as before. The follower l! rotates around the axis provided by the guide 44 as the yarn passes through the eye portion Il.
The threading of the yarn may be readily effected.
With the cap removed, a yarn package C is mounted on the plate 23 with its lower end embracing the projection 24. The cap 40 is positioned on the yarn package C and with the guide tube 43 extending downwardly within the interior oi the yarn package C. The yarn from the yarn package C is then passed through the ring 33 and brought around the lower end of the skirt 42 of the cap 40, and is inserted with a wire or long flexible needle downwardly through the tubular yarn guide 44, the guide tube 43, the guide block 31. the tension arms 32, the yarn guide 25, and the openings I1 and I8 in the bushing I3 and the driving pulley I I. The yarn end is then drawn upwardly through the guide tube I5 and is lnserted through a suitable guide (not shown) above the cap 40 for winding in any desired manner. The ring and tension rod 46, or the follower 55, may then be placed in position and the twisting of the yarn carried out.
