Cartwright, Edmund


Cartwright, Edmund
(24 abr. 1743, Marnham, Nottinghamshire, Inglaterra–30 oct. 1823, Hastings, Sussex).

Inventor británico. Sus visitas a las hilanderías de algodón de Richard Arkwright, lo inspiraron para la construcción de una máquina de tejer accionada mecánicamente. Inventó un telar mecánico y estableció una fábrica de tejedura e hilado en Yorkshire. En 1789 patentó una máquina peinadora de lana. En 1809, la Cámara de los Comunes lo premió por los beneficios que su telar le había otorgado a la nación. Entre sus otros inventos se cuentan una máquina cordelera (máquina para fabricar cuerdas) y una máquina de vapor que usaba alcohol en vez de agua.
