Hello, we will see in this workshop the interlining of a Serge Ferrari 381 canvas on a FTI TSMOD frame. The orientation of the profile on the 80mm is requested by the customer for technical reasons. The fabric has a matt surface and a metallized treated surface, it is important to respect the directions. The technicians unroll the fabric directly without pre-cutting and leaving 20 cm on each side to proceed with the tensioning. Use a small 10 cm GRIPP clamping block to preposition the canvas on the frame. The PVC clampings blocks must be rolled in the “Rolling machine” reduction tool before being inserted, otherwise they can damage the fabric. The clampings blocks must be installed first in the middle of the largest sides and then in the corners. Start tensioning the fabric from the middle clamping block towards the sides. Do not stretch too much with your hand, it is the rotation effect of the gripper that allows you to stretch continuously. From the gripper already in place, he uses the same cavity to leave on the other side. we use an anti-bounce mallet You must use a rigid spatula to remove the clamping block and gripper, do not do so with your fingers. When you need to insert a gripper to continue the tension on the other side, remember to remove the first gripper already installed on 15 cm in order to take the tension back and not create a pocket. The gripper teeth must be at the back opposite the stretched part. Cut the remaining material from the canvas underneath the gripper. Use a square file to file the inside of the aluminum key to form the corners. First, the angles are set to ensure the continuity of the key on the corners. Use a soft rubber mallet to hit the keys. This team had never practiced the tension of the canvas before this morning. We are on a training day at one of our customers’ premises. Here is an example of a well inserted key Never forget to lubricate the aluminium keys on the part you are going to insert with a brush. It is better to measure the key and cut it with a machine than to use a grinder. anyway .. We produced a 4 m2 textile façade panel in a quarter of an hour. Thank you for listening.
