Image Number 2 for United States Patent #5947164.
A cloth beam arrangement for tubular felts or cloths in a weaving machine brings about feed in the weaving machine of the overfelt and the underfelt. The arrangement comprises an upper first beam, an intermediate second beam and a lower third beam. The underfelt runs against the first and the third beam and the overfelt runs against the second beam. The arrangement comprises driving members for the beams. The weaving machine includes a sley which during weaving acts against a weaving edge which has been established. The driving members drive the beams in a way which prevents mutual longitudinal displacement movements between the overfelt and the underfelt. It is thus ensured during weaving that the overfelt and underfelt edges remain completely overlapping one another at the weaving edge.
