Abstract:

The objective of Phase I of this research project was to develop a modified Clupicker. The Clupicker is a mechanism to automatically pick up single plies of fabric. Older versions of the Clupicker have been difficult to set up and maintain. In addition, old feeder systems could not cope with sudden fabric change and had numerous performance problems. The Modified Clupicker developed as a result of this research project was shown at the Bobbin Show in Atlanta, GA and was well-received. Further design modifications are necessary, however, before it will be ready for commercial sale. If funded, Phase II will include testing and evaluation of the Modified Clupicker at the Clemson Apparel Research facility.
