Title: Sliver deflecting mechanism in a regulated draw frame

Abstract: A regulated draw unit for drawing sliver running therethrough includes a plurality of roll pairs each defining respective nips through which the sliver consecutively passes in a running direction. A pressure bar which is situated between two adjoining roll pairs has a region for contacting the running sliver. The pressure bar is supported in such a manner that the pressure bar region is spaced from an imaginary straight line extending from the nips of the two adjoining roll pairs, whereby the running sliver is deflected. A measuring device is coupled to the pressure bar for emitting signals representing forces applied to the pressure bar by the running, deflected sliver.
