Heathcoat, John

Heathcoat, John
(7 ago. 1783, Duffield, Derbyshire, Inglaterra–18 ene. 1861, Tiverton, Devon).

Inventor británico. La máquina encajera (ver producción de encajes), que patentó en 1809, reproducía una imitación exacta del encaje de bolillos hecho a mano; era la máquina textil más compleja hasta entonces. Su fábrica de encajes fue destruida en 1816 por obreros (ver ludita) que veían su trabajo amenazado por las máquinas. Más tarde desarrolló medios para ornamentar mallas en el transcurso de la fabricación, para hacer cintas, mallas trenzadas y en espiral, y para el hilado de la seda a partir de los capullos del gusano.
