Rotating Brush Assembly DESCRIPTION

Technical Field

The invention relates to a rotating brush assembly which is used in a fabric control machine that makes production by rolling up all fabrics at open width circular, raschel, woven, dyeing, and finishing stages over and over as a cylindrical roll and which prevents edge folds that occur during manufacturing.

Prior Art

While all fabric manufacturers produce fabrics in machines by rolling up them over and over as a cylindrical roll in a desired weight and meter, folds that occur in fabrics due to edge folds particularly in lycra fabrics (synthetic products that allow fabrics to be flexible) lead to irreversible fractures in the structure of fabrics despite ironing with flash steam which is called fixation. These fractured edges are cut by 1 cm to 1 .5 cm during dyeing and finishing stages and removed as a waste. This approximately attributes to 1 % to 5% waste.

In the literature search, similar applications relating to the prevention of edge folds that occur during manufacturing of all fabrics at open width circular, raschel, woven, dyeing, and finishing stages in fabric control machines by rolling up over and over as a cylindrical roll have been encountered.

US4714036A patent application relates to a assembly comprising a passive guiding assembly and a correction device which are acting in combination to offer a regular fold before the stitching station. This said assembly includes two elements of which one is placed inside the other in the form of a U during formation of the fold.

Consequently, improvements related to the prevention of edge folds that occur during manufacturing of all fabrics at open width circular, raschel, woven, dyeing, and finishing stages in fabric control machines by rolling up over and over as a cylindrical roll have been made; thus, new settlements that will eliminate the above-mentioned disadvantages and bring solutions to the current systems are needed. Object of the Invention The primary object of the invention is to lower the costs by canceling out wastes based on fractures by preventing edge folds (fractures) during manufacturing of crude fabrics in the machines which makes production by rolling up fabrics over and over as a cylindrical roll. In order to achieve abovementioned objective, the said rotating brush assembly comprises a main shaft and an auxiliary shaft which perform rotatory motion, at least one circular brush that opens the edge of fabric, and at least one brush chain that opens the fractures of fabrics with different widths without changing brush setting.

Then, another bearing (5) is nailed on to the main shaft (2) and the auxiliary shaft (3), fixed via the shaft ring (7), and put into the bearing in the main body (1 ) and the top bearing (5) is fixed via the hole ring (6). Therefore, the main shaft (2) and the auxiliary shaft (3) are allowed to rotate regularly in the bearing of the main body (1 ). Then, the running gears (4) are mounted via the wedges (1 1 ) corresponding to the main shaft (2) and the auxiliary shaft (3) and fixed by the shaft ring (7) and the main shaft (2) rotates the auxiliary shaft (3).

The chain wheel (12), which takes the rotatory motion from the machine via the chain, is nailed to the head of the main shaft (2) via the wedge (1 1 ) and the shaft ring (7) is mounted; thus it is provided the main shaft (2) and the auxiliary shaft (3) in the main body (1 ) to be able to rotate right and left

The sockets (8) to which the outer protective hose of spiral wire (13) protecting and bearing the spiral wire (10), which transmits the rotatory motion to the front side of the main body (1 ), while rotating is mounted are fixed to the parts of main body (1 ), which are not thread previously, by screws corresponding to the main shaft (2) and the auxiliary shaft (3). The outer protective hose of spiral wire (13) is inserted to these fixed sockets (8) and the spiral wire (10) which transmits the rotatory motion is made ready to be mounted. Rectangular headings (9) are fixed to both ends of the spiral wire (10) by pressing and they are provided to transmit continuous rotatory motion. The spiral wires (10) with rectangular headings that gain transmission property of continuous rotatory motion are passed through the outer protective hose of spiral wire (13), which protects and bears while rotating, and inserted into the rectangular sections in the main shaft (2) and the auxiliary shaft (3); then the main shaft (2) and the auxiliary shaft (3) transmit the rotatory motion to the circular brushes (18) in a continuous manner.
