Types of Knitting Technology

Tricot Warp Knitting

  • Flat warp knit fabrics up to 130” wide
  • Design capability from 1 to 4 guide bars, all electronically controlled through an on machine HMI, or remotely networked through CAD knitting software
  • Servo motor controlled warp beam let-off and fabric take-up systems for precise tension control throughout the fabric formation process
  • Fine gauge knitting needles for high density, low profile fabric production
  • Infinite pattern repeat length to design highly engineered fabrics with regions of specialized physical and mechanical properties
  • Embedded quality control features including laser stop motions to detect single yarn breaks and dropped stitch defects

Circular Warp Knitting

  • Small diameter tubular fabric offering a range of stitch configurations and densities
  • Dual headed machinery to maximize production output at commercialization
  • Tension controlled take-up traverse winders to deliver product to post-treatment free from distortion
  • Adjacent creel with individual yarn tensioners and stop motions to ensure uniform yarn tension during the knitting cycle
  • Design pattern flexibility to engineer radial compliance and axial stretch to client specifications
