20100090050MODULAR CREEL - A portable creel for organizing yarn packages and directing yarn to a tufting machine. A portable creel provides flexibility for carpet manufactures in that operators can pre-load portable creels with yarn packages for future runs and move them into position when needed. In one aspect, the portable creel comprises an outer frame and a movable inner frame. The inner frame is configured to hold a plurality of yarn packages and the outer frame comprises a plurality of tubes configured to direct the yarn from the yarn packages to a header. The header, in turn, directs the yarn from the portable creel to specific portions of a tufting machine.04-15-2010
20090026298Creel Loading and Relieving Device for a Winding Device of a Textile Machine Producing Cross-Wound Bobbins - A creel loading and relieving device for a winding device of a textile machine producing crosswound bobbins adjusts the contact pressure of a take-up bobbin mounted in a creel on a driving roll. The creel loading and relieving device comprises a creel pivotally mounted via a creel shaft and a force applying means which grips the creel and is adjustable via a positioning element. The creel loading and relieving device (01-29-2009
20090101742CREEL MAGAZINE SUPPLY SYSTEM AND METHOD - A creel magazine for delivering packaged stranded material to a creel. The magazine includes magazine frame having guides for directing stranded materials to a creel or manufacturing process. Movable magazine cartridges rotatably support packages of stranded materials and are positioned on either side of the magazine frame. The apparatus and method provide for sequential delivery of stranded materials by alternating delivery sources between cartridges, intermediate replenishment of spent packages by rotation of a full package to a delivery position, and replenishment of spent cartridges.04-23-2009
20110017855Thread spool and bobbin holder - A thread spool holding device has a plastic base plate that holds a series of preferably soft plastic spindles that can be introduced or removed from the base and can be arranged as needed by sliding along a slotted track of the base. Each spindle can hold a threaded spool and has a cross sectional configuration for gripping the center hole of the spool. The spindle ends can also hold a bobbin in tandem with a thread spool.01-27-2011
20090108114Portable and adjustable reeled wire dispenser - A portable and adjustable reeled wire dispenser having a base platform with first and second side walls extending upwardly from the base platform and a plurality of adjustable rotatable members for accommodating various reel sizes to assist an individual in the installation of electric, cable wire or other material.04-30-2009
242129000 HOLDER FOR COILED STRAND 2
20090008492Wire caddy - The wire caddy is designed to hold single or multiple spools of electrical wire commonly used in the building trades. This device allows wire spools to be inserted onto a support shaft and retained onto the support shaft by insertion of a retaining pin through retaining pin holes in the end of the support shaft. Wire is guided off the spool through a guide hole in the support bracket.01-08-2009
20090108113WIRE RACK - A wire rack includes: a pair of opposite supporting arms, each of which has opposite first and second ends; a connecting member interconnecting the supporting arms; a pair of opposite first confining arms extending respectively from the first ends of the supporting arms in opposite directions; a pair of pivot joints; and a pair of opposite second confining arms pivoted to the second ends of the supporting arms through the pivot joints, respectively, and rotatable relative to the supporting arms between a first angular position, in which each adjacent pair of the first and second confining arms cooperate with the respective one of the supporting arms to form into a U-shaped structure, and a second angular position, in which each of the second confining arms and the respective one of the supporting arms extend from the respective one of the pivot joints in opposite directions.04-30-2009
242127000 SKEIN HOLDER 1
20130015282YARN FEEDING DEVICE AND METHOD THEREFOR - A yarn dispensing device has a pole. A base member is attached to a bottom section of the pole. A plurality of rod members is attached to a top section of the pole. At least one skein holder is removable coupled to one of the rod members.01-17-2013
