Greiner, Menasha, and C G. Russell Johnson and John C. Bletzinger, Neenah, Wis., assignors to Kimberly-Clark Corporation, Neenah, Wis., a corporation of Delaware Filed Sept. 4, 195% Ser. No. 838,260 1 Claim. (Cl. 19-155) This invention relates to an improved method of forming web-like material made wholly or partially of either natural or synthetic fibers or combinations thereof, to apparatus for carrying out the method, and to the product thus formed.

A major object of the invention is to provide an improved method of employing a fluid medium for laying fibers on a moving foraminous member in a manner to effect a substantially random inter-laying of the fibers for continuous production of a multiply apertured nonwoven web-like material of attractive design and soft texture particularly adapted for use as a low cost sanitary napkin wrapper through which fluids may readily pass.

Another object is to provide such an improved fibrous web-like fabric wherein the fibers are disposed at random, for uniform strength in all directions throughout a major portion of the fabric, but which are geometrically arranged in certain spaced areas marginally to define apertures preferably disposed in patterned configuration.

Another object is to provide an improved method and apparatus for the high speed fluid laying of different types of fibers wherein a layer of fibers of one type may sequentially be applied to a layer of a different type to provide a laminated fabric having multiple apertures arranged in patterned configuration and extending through either all or a portion of the different layers thus formed.

Another object is to provide improved apparatus for carrying out the above method on a production basis.

A still further object is to provide an improved end product fabricated by the improved method and apparatus taught herein.

Other objects and advantages will become apparent to persons skilled in the art upon examination of the description, the drawings, and the claim appended hereto.

The invention herein taught is primarily directed to the high speed low cost production of very lightweight fibrous webs composed of either cellulosic or synthetic fibers or mixtures thereof. Such webs may or may not be reinforced with a backing consisting of one or more sets of non-woven threads or with a woven gauze-like material upon which the web is formed. During recent years the increased demand for very lightweight but relatively strong materials having high fluid strike-through characteristics has progressively increased as manufacturers of sanitary napkins, medical bandages and'the like have continuously sought to lower their manufacturing costs while maintaining or improving the quality and desirable characteristics of such material, The concepts herein taught permit the modification of existing production equipment in a manner to permit-the very high speed fabrication of improved materials particularly adapted for the above stated end uses.

FIGURE 1 illustrates an otherwise conventional Fourdrinier type papermaking machine, with the forming wire or screen thereof modified in accordance with the invention. A headbox 20 delivers liquid entrained fibers as a furnish to a forming wire 24 which continuously moves in the arrow direction of a breast roll 26, it being well understood that the fluid entrained fibers are deposited on wire 24 in and beyond the area of its support on breast roll 26 to form a web-like deposit thereon as the entraining liquid or white water passes through the wire. A

major portion of the liquid may be drawn through the breast roll 26, if of open construction, by suitable suction boxes and thereafter lesser portions of the fluid may be removed by the spaced suction boxes 28 and 30 as the wire continues its clockwise movement toward a couch roll 31.

As shown in FIGURES 4 and 6, wire 24 has fixed thereto, as by rivets 32, a plurality of upwardly extending spaced cones 34 arranged in patterned configuration. As We 24 partially encircles the breast roll 26 it passes through a lip of slice 36 to receive at that position the furnish from headbox 20 for deposit of liquid entrained fibers upon wire 24 throughout the areas thereof bet-ween cones 34. As shown in FIGURE 6, cones 34 are of a height substantially greater than the thickness of wire 24, hence as the furnish flows down over the cones 34 to escape through the interstices of Wire 24, a portion of the entrained fibers are positively directed by the walls of the cones to a position at the bases thereof with the result that a substantial portion of such fibers assume a position of rest on the wire which isgenerally tangential to the cones at their bases. The fibers which are deposited intermediate the cones without contact therewith are disposed in more haphazard manner.

Due to the direction of wire travel under slice 36 and i to hydraulic conditions involved in the feeding'of the furnish through slice 36 a larger portion of the deposited fibers will be aligned in the machine direction than in the cross direction. The machine directional strength of the fibrous web thus formed therefor normally exceeds its Cones 34thus provide the wire with masked out areas,

hence the .web produced by the deposit of liquid entrained fibers thereon isprovided with apertures corresponding in size and shape to .the cone bases, substantially to increase the fluid permeability and improve the appearance of the web. Such a web presents an entirely different appearance and has a different feel than does a web produced in a somewhat similar manner on a forming wire provided with areas which are correspondingly masked outas by tape or in some other manner productive of a two dimensional effect. A patterned web produced on a wire blanked out in a two dimensional manner lacks both the pattern definiteness and feel of a Web of similar pattern and weight produced on the three dimensional screen taught herein. As the furnish flows over a wire masked out in a two dimensional manner, those fibers deposited marginally of the masked out areas which define the web apertures lack symmetry at the aperture margins. The margin defining fibers are notvpositively directed" to the marginalar'eas while liqp in the box, which may or may not be maintained under.

' FIGS. 5 and 8 illustrate the manner in which the invention may be incorporated in liquid formation apparatus of a type particularly adapted for liquid forming of long fibers, such as synthetic fibers of lengths up to 1 /2 inches, for example. While the forming apparatus of FIG. 1 has long been used without incorporation of the present invention for the manufacture of paper of various types, certain advantages are obtained by useof the apparatus of FIGS. 5 and 8 where a web consisting at least in part of long synthetic fibers is desired. The apparatus of FIGS. 5 and 8 includes a headbox formed between wall 44 and a forming wire 45 with the furnish pressure, at about the level shown by a continuous supply of furnish fed through conduit 46 as wire 45 continuously travels upwardly in the arrow direction. Wire 45 is caused to pass between a solid backing roll 47 and a resilient seal roll 48 to provide a headbox seal, with the furnish maintained in a trough-like container formed by partition 44-, two end walls 51, FIG. 8, and wire 45. Since there is substantially no flow of stock in the direction of wire travel as in the FIG. 1 apparatus, it is un- "necessary that the protuberances extend above the stock.

'uid entrained just prior to wire deposit as are fibers deposited in accordance with the invention. The involved hydraulic conditions are substantially different, since the furnish is free to flow over the blanked out areas of a two di-menn'onal wire while being prevented from such flow over corresponding areas of wires incorporating the invention. As the furnish flows over wire areas closed with tape or the like, fluid entrained fibers are largely deposited on portions thereof generally outwardly of the tape edges in anon-uniform manner productive of a web --which tapers off in thickness at the aperture forming margins thereof. The aperture defining marginal portions of webs formed on two dimensional wires are of a density much less than the average densityol the intervening web portions, and the apertures are ill-defined and quite ragged in appearance.

As the furnish flows over the three dimensional wire of FIGURE 4, more fibers per unit area are deposited marginally on cones 34 than throughout the areas therebetween. The fiber deposits marginally of the apertures of a web thus formed are also of a density somewhat in excess of the average density of the web throughout the intermediate areas. Since the protuberances serve as positive directioning means. for those fluid entrained fibers which contact the sides thereof in their descent toward the wire, the deposit 'of such fibers on the wire at the base of the protuberances is controlled in a manner to assure symmetrical and well defined aperture margins. a

While the wire protuberancesshown in FIGS. 4 and 6 are of conical configuration, protuberances of widely diliering configuration and patterned disposition may be selected for production of webs of various designs. It

is important, however, that regardless of the configuraand oversubstantial areas of the wire prior to passage therethrough after deposit of entrained'fibers on the wire.

Protuberances of a height several times the web thickness are normally preferred. FIGURE 7 illustrates pro- During the continuous movement of wire 45 upwardly from the nip formed between rolls 48 and 47 the furnish flows through the wire interstices to fall by gravity into suitable collector pain 49 for return to the system. A suction box may be placed under wire 45 to facilitate fluid passage through the wire if desired. A seal. is established between wire 45 and the end walls 51 by two sets of rubber-like sealing strips 50 forming channels through which marginal portions of the wire pass during its upward travel, those marginal portions of the wire being devoid of protuberances. Wire 45 is shown provided with conical protuberances 52 disposed in patterned configuration throughout a major central portion thereof inwardly of those marginal areas which pass through sealing strips 51. The screen shown in FIG. 9 with protuberances, cross-shaped in plan, or protuberances of other configurations may of course be substituted therefor in any desired pattern. The fibers during formation of webs in this manner tend to align predominantly in the machine direction and as in the FIG. 1 apparatus the protuberances reduce the machine to cross directional strength ratio. The protuberances function as above described to direct contacting fibers to positions at their bases, hence the resulting web is slightly thicker and of greater density marginally of the web apertures than in the intervening areas.

The apparatus of FIGS. 2 and 3 incorporates concepts herein taught with equal effectiveness for air forming of fibrous webs. In FIG. 2, a continuously driven wire 62 is mounted to pass beneath one or more air formers 64 and 66 which may be of the type disclosed in US. Harwood Patent 2,719,337, the details of which form no part of this invention. Each such air former receives matted fibrous stock from a roll 68 for fiber separation and entrainment thereof in a downwardly directed air stream 70 for haphazard deposit of the individual fibers on forming wire 62. A suction box 72 accelerates fibrous deposits on the wire and a pair of' resilient seal rolls 74 and 76 confine such deposits to the projected area of a dowpwardly directed nozzle 78'.

Wire 62 is provided throughout a centrally disposed strip-like area with square shanked protuberances, FIG. 7, disposed in patterned configuration to present a threedimensional partially blanked out foraminous surface to the downwardly directed stream of air entrained fibers as the wire moves between seal rolls 74 and 76. FIG.

15 shows fragmentarily a sanitary napkin wrapper produced on wire 62, the square shanked protuberances of FIG. 7 rendering the central web portion 82 highly fluid permeable and of attractive design. Integral lateral portions 84 are of uniform density since free of apertures. FIG. 12 shows in detail the disposition of fibers marginally of and intermediate the central area apertures of the web shown in FIG. 15.

Wire 62 may, as in liquid forming, be of alternate con: struction, and must be of sufficient height above the wire to extend substantially above the web thus formed to insure the desired disposition of fibers marginally of the web apertures. In common with the above described structure of FIG. 1 the air forming ofa web by the ap paratus of HG. 2 results in fiber alignment in the machine direction somewhat in excess of that in the cross direction. However, the protuberances also serve to decrease the ratio between the machine and cross directional strengths of the resulting web. By alteration of the type and pattern of protuberances on wire 62, various types of webs may be produced.

The second air layer 66, FIG. 2, while not required for production of single layer webs as shown in FIG. 10, permits continuous low cost production of a double layer web shown in FIG. 11. Bottom layer 86 is applied in the above manner by air layer 64 and thereafter top layer 88 is applied to layer 86 by air layer 66. Layer 88- may be bonded if desired to layer 86 by the application of adhesive to the top of layer 86 from device 90 prior to the deposit thereof of layer 88, press roll 92 being employed if desired to increase the density of layer 86 prior to the application thereto of layer 88. Layer 88 may likewise be adhesively treated by device 94 and the two layers further condensed by roll 96 following application of layer 83. The adhesive applied by devices 90 and 94 may be of the thermoplastic type and then wound up in a known manner as shown at 100. Additional air layers may be employed to produce thicker webs of three or more layers.

During the above described production of multiple layer webbing the aperture defining protuberances serve to insure registry of the apertures of both layers during both the adhesive application and the condensing stages. Webs of plural types of fibers may also be formed on the apparatus of FIG. 2. For example the fabric of FIG. 11 may comprise a base layer 86 of highly absorbent cellulosic fibers deposited from air layer 64 to which is applied by air layer 66 a layer 88 of relatively non-absorbent synthetic fibers. The synthetic fibers of layer 88 may be of a type considered highly desirable for use in sanitary napkin or bandage wrappers where body contact is involved but are seldom so used because of their hydrophobic characteristics.

Even though a wrapper of such fibers is multiply apertured, the low fluid permeability of such material causes undesirable fluid spread intermediate the apertures. However, those hydrophobic characteristics may be efiectively neutralized and layer 88 rendered hydrophilic in character by a contiguously associated layer of highly absorbent fibers such as may be deposited by unit 64 to form layer 86. The application of adhesive by devices 90 and 94 may be omitted and the relatively light required bonding between individual fibers obtained by adding to the fibrous stock fed into one or both of-the air layers a small percentage of thermoplastic fibers.

Reinforced fabrics can be formed on the apparatus of FIG. 2 by feeding either a pluralityof warp threads or a woven or non-woven gauze or the like directly onto wire 62 prior to its arrival at air layer unit 64. Such a web 102 may be fed in any suitable manner to wire 62 to pass under sealing roll 74, preferably of the resilient type. Roll 74 forces the web down over the protuberances of wire 62, expanding the web when necessary to receive the protuberances and cause it to lie flat against the wire. Warp threads may be fed in a manner to avoid the protuberances if desired, but in any event neither the threads nor the presence of relatively open web affects the above described fiber laying during production of reinforced webs as shown in FIGS. 13 and 14. Such a web may comprise a woven or non-woven base material 104 to which is applied a fibrous layer 106 with both the base material and the fibrous deposit thereon multiply apertured in patterned configuration as shown at 108.

A further modification of the invention is shown incorporated in the apparatus of FIG. 3. An air laying unit 110 may be of the general type shown at 64 and 66, FIG. 5, to deposit individual fibers separated from a stock roll 112 onto a peripheral portion of a revolving foraminous drum 114, suitably driven in a clockwise direction as shown. A pair of seal rolls 116 and 118 confine deposit of air entrained fibers to the projected area of a depending nozzle 120. A suction box 122 is disposed interiorly of drum 114 to extend from seal roll 116 to suction roll 124 for acceleration of fiber deposit. As shown in FIGS. 16, 17 and 18 drum 114 is provided throughout substantially the periphery thereof with a plurality of apertures 126 shown as bores disposed in patterned configuration and extending through the wall of the drum. A plurality of pyramid-like protuberances 128 are fixed to the drum to extend outwardly from the annular surface thereof, the protuberances being also disposed in patterned configuration but in areas defined intermediate apertures 126. As the fiber entraining air stream moves downwardly through nozzle 120 under pressure established within unit 110 and accelerated by suction box 122, the fiber entraining air passes through drum apertures 126 which are of a diameter substantially less than the average fiber length. The entrained fibers are therefor deposited on the surface of the drum, and protuberances 128, being of a height substantially greater than the fibrous web thus formed, guide a portion 7 of the fibers downwardly to positions adjacent their bases.

Since the web thus formed consists of rather loosely deposited fibers it ofiers no substantial resistance to passage of the air stream therethrough as the web is built up. In common with the structure of FIG. 2, the resulting web is slightly thicker in the areas adjacent the bases of the protuberances than in intervening areas due to the above mentioned rearrangement of those fibers which are guided down the sides of the protuberances which serve as ramps. Such an effect may be counteracted if desired since it is somewhat dependent upon the air stream velocities involved. By the employment of very high air stream velocities, some entrained fibers are drawn away from the protuberances and toward the air escape bores, hence fibrous deposits of substantially uniform thickness and density may be obtained in the areas intermediate the protuberances. While drum 114 as illustrated in FIG. 3 is of solid wall construction with plural bores provided therein for escape of the air stream, the invention contemplates an annular drum surface of wire screen or other foraminous materials to which protuberances of a desired configuration are fixed in patterned configuration to effect a like result.

In common with the apparatus of FIG. 2, the FIG. 3 apparatus readily lends itself to many modifications involving the concepts herein taught. For example, by placing additional units in circumferentially spaced relation to drum 114 thicker webs as well as webs consisting of various layers of dilferent fibers may be produced. The webs may have applied thereto, either during or after formation, suitable adhesives or other additives by known devices such as roll type applicator 132. Reinforcing materials such as woven or non-woven fabric may be introduced either under seal roll 116 to be drawn around a portion of drum 114 during and after fiber application thereto (not shown) or such material as shown at 134 may be fed over a guide roll 136 and onto a conveyor belt 138 and through a nip formed between one of the conveyor guide rolls 140 and suction pick up roll 124. As the web thus reinforced leaves conveyor 126 it may be fed between calender rolls 142 and 144 for the application to one side thereof of another element such as a thin plastic film 146. Various laminate products now in wide use may thus be produced at high speed. The product may receive further treatment at 147 prior to final wind up at station 148. Since liquid formed webs normally have characteristics which diifer quite widely from air formed webs, it is thus seen that V the invention is of broad scope and one which may readily be incorporated in production apparatus of Widely vary-1 ing design for the fabrication of a wide range of products which differ substantially both in physical characteristics and appearance. 7

While the above described apparatus employs either liquid or air laying techniques in' teaching the invention, the principles are equally applicable in respect to the 'formation of webs by known methods of electrostatic depositing fibers.
