The machine is provided with an extra actuator that enables a production of mesh patterns in two feeds.
The standard machine will produce such mesh patterns in one feed only.
This option is recommended in case the machine will be used for the production of pantyhose.
Knitting in two feeds will shorten the production time without losing the possibility of mesh patterns that are commonly used in the pantyhose.
Mesh is also called "filet stitch".
This device recalls the yarn from the cone and stores a few coils of it on a small drum placed just above the feeding point. The yarn is then delivered to the knitting head with a very precise, constant and adjustable tension , eliminating in this way, all the tension irregularities originated by the cones. The feeding tension is constantly measured by a sensor that, in case of alterations, send a feed-back signal to the feeding motor that will change the feeding parameters in order to keep constant the feeding tension.
The feeding tension can be graduated during knitting sending signals from an electronic board (Ultrafeeder preparation) to the Ultrafeeders through a serial line.
This device is indispensable for feeding bare lycra.
This device consists in a number of sensors that electronically detect when the yarn is flowing and when the yarn is steady. During the production of the first sock, information about the yarn flow is stored into a memory on an electronic board (BTSR preparation). During the production of all the following socks, the device checks that the yarns flow with the same sequence as the first one. In case of errors, the machine stops avoiding the production of second choice socks.
CLAMP FOR BARE LYCRA
This device is required for clamping the bare lycra after it has been cut. Please note that bare lycra also requires the Ultrafeeder device.
The second elastic colour is a standard in 4" machines. It is an optional device on all the other diameters.
This device can be installed on the machines with Rimaglio device and enables the machine to eject the sock without the second re-turning. In other words, the sock is ejected turned inside-out. This is normally requested for an easier inspection of the socks. See video.
This device can be installed only on machines without terry and it enables knitting socks with a reinforcing yarn in the sole/high heel areas.
The reinforcing yarn will be plated to the inside of the sock. It will also be possible adding a pattern on the reinforced area.
This device recalls the yarn from the cone and stores it on a small drum placed just above the feeding point. The yarn is then delivered to the knitting head with constant and adjustable tension, eliminating in this way, all the tension irregularities originated by the cones. Consequently, the sizes are more constant and it will be possible knitting yarns having low resistance.
This device, which increases the striping capabilities, applies to 5" machines only. This model, in fact, has, as a standard, 6 fingers. The fingers of the striper with 8 fingers have a smaller guiding hole than the standard ones. Therefore, this device is not recommended below 84 needles
The suction fan is necessary to keep in tension the sock, to eject it from the machine after it is completed and to suck the waste of yarns (which goes into the filter).
These units must be necessarily equipped on the machine in case your customer has not a centralized vacuum unit.
The 2-feed machine guarantees higher productivity (approx. +20%) than the 1 feed machine (in case of socks without patterns).
We inform you that we use USB stick for pattern transfer. It is also possible to connect the machine to an ethernet network and transfer files through such same network.
