DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

The structural features and the effects to be achieved may further be understood and appreciated by reference to the presently preferred embodiments together with the detailed description.

First, referring to the FIG. 1, is a structure diagram of a preferred embodiment of the present invention seamless down cloth. The down cloth 10 comprises a shell fabric 11, a lining 13, and down (not shown), wherein the down are provided between the shell fabric 11 and the lining 13, a plurality of down areas 111 and a plurality of pasted areas 113 are spread around the shell fabric 11, the shell fabric 11 is with seamless. The pasting material of the pasted areas can be a PU adhesive film or s PU glue, and the pasted areas can be designed as any patterns, such as a line type, a curve type, or a ravine type, therefore, the down cloth 10 will be with various outlooks.

The present invention disclosed a seamless skill that provides several pasted areas to divide the shell fabric 11 into several down areas 111, and fills proper down into each down area, such that the down will not be spilled easily from suture, even the down is very slippery, thus, the cloth will be more comfortable and good looking, furthermore, since the cloth is without any sutures and stitches, the water proof can be more efficiency according to the various functions of the cloth, sequentially, the material of shell fabric 11 can be with functions of water proof, wind proof, moisture conductivity, or the combination thereof, such that can provide the functions of well water proof for the cloth, and since the seamless feature of the cloth can be used for preventing the air convection that can cause heat flowing away, the cloth will be better on warm keeping. And further, the hem width of the shell fabric 11 is lesser, according to the seamless for the cloth. Especially, the down cloth can be altered to comprise two layers only, which are the shell fabric 11 and the lining 13, instead of the original three layers, which are the shell fabric, the lining, and the padding, thus, the weight of the cloth can be reduced efficiently.

Referring to FIG. 2, is a flow chart of a preferred embodiment of the present invention seamless down cloth manufacturing method. The method comprises the steps of:

  • Step 201, patterning for a designed pattern of a down cloth 10 according to the determined size;
  • Step 202, cutting a sample (not shown) provided after patterning;
  • Step 203, forming the down cloth 10, designing a pasted pattern (not shown), cutting the pasted pattern and a shell fabric 11, stacking a lining 13, the pasted pattern, and the shell fabric 10 in order according to the pattern, and pasting that;
  • Step 204, filling proper down into a plurality of down areas 111 regarding as the required weight for each, that is, much-down filled will cause the cloth too heavy, on the other hand, less-down filled will cause the cloth too light and effect the outlook and the warm keeping; and
  • Step 205, sewing at least one accessory 115 on the down cloth 10, such as zippers, buttons, and so on.

The mentioned way of cutting can be selectively as a manual cutting, a punching cutting, and a laser cutting. Accordingly, the laser cutting can be implemented by the process of designing the pasted pattern by the computer software, setting the energy and the velocity of the laser cutting machine, and cutting the pasted pattern by the laser cutting machine, wherein the energy of that can be set around 90 to 98, the velocity of that can be set around 12 to 15, consequently, the different widths of pasted area 113 material and shell fabric 11 are required different energy and velocity. The outermost layer of the shell fabric 11 is processed with a thinnest long lasting spray-on PU film during the manufacturing of the shell fabric 11, thus, drops will be pushed through under certain moist circumstances, the seamless and smoother surface of the cloth can be used to alter the water run-off, such that the drops will be slipped off rapidly, therefore, the water proof function can be provided according to the down cloth 10 surely. At raining, the down cloth having water proof function can prevent the lost of body temperature, furthermore, which is more comfortable for people.

The lining 13, pasted pattern, and the shell fabric 11 are pasted by hot pasting, for example, setting the parameters of the temperature, the pressure, and the pressing period time of a hot pasting machine (not shown), the lining 13, the pasted pattern, and the shell fabric 11 are stacked in order according to the sample and pasted by the hot pasting machine. Of course, the manufacturer can test the parameters of temperature, the pressure, and the pressing period time first for obtaining the optimal value to set the parameters of the hot pasting machine. Sequentially, once the temperature is higher, or the pressing period time is longer, the shell fabric 11 will be burned, that is, the shell fabric 11 will be with bad ventilation and effect the function of water proof; on the other hand, once the pressing period time is shorter, the temperature is lower, or the pressure is insufficient, the shell fabric 11 and the lining 13 will be pasted insecurely, such that the down between the shell fabric 11 and the lining 13 will move together since the insecure pasted. Accordingly, the function of warm keeping for the cloth will be affected.

Finally, the seamless down cloth 10 manufactured from the pervious mentioned methods can prevent the attrition of stitches and sutures in accordance the laser cutting, hot pasting, and so on. The outlook of the down cloth 10 is more featly and smoother. Wherein, the material of the shell fabric 11 can be selected with lighter, tender, and more comfortable, further, the function of that can be selected with water proof, snow proof, wind proof, moisture conductivity, ventilation, oil proof, dirty proof, and so on.

The foregoing description is merely one embodiment of present invention and not considered as restrictive. All equivalent variations and modifications in process, method, feature, and spirit in accordance with the appended claims may be made without in any way from the scope of the invention.
