Garment Length Circular Knitting Machine with rib border. The Mec-Mor Variatex HP is synonymous of productivity, quality and reliability.
The new double jersey Mec-Mor HP with open variable fabric width (Variatex Technology) combines the possibility and flexibility of traditional knitwear machines with the quality, productivity and efficiency of circular knitting machines.
The variable width of the fabric panel allows to set the number of working needles for the required product: one single machine is able to produce all the sizes reducing wastages.
This 44” diameter machine has gauges ranging from E7 to E20. The machine has 24 feeds. It is alternating 12 combined knitting transfer systems (3 technical ways on both cylinder and dial) with 12 knitting systems (2 technical ways on both cylinder and dial).
Every second feed is equipped with a combined knitting/transfer system, therefore at every revolution the graphic programming system (SM1) can set each of the 12 feeds either as a “ knit feed” OR as a” transfer feed”, achieving every knitting stitch composition with maximum productivity.
Transfer on the 12 feeds can be:
One way: from dial to cylinder or from cylinder to dial
Double way: the transfer takes place at the same time in both directions on the same feed.
A“double hunch” transfer cam is design to perform with success even the most difficult yarns.
The yarn feeding system uses a 4 colour striper with the possibility of feeding bare lycra when producing stretch garments.
The striper is electronically controlled by a step by step motor and a pneumatic selector.
Machine features stitch structures with many colours or with various types of yarn, like:
jacquard (single and double jersey) - 4 col. stripes - bare lycra plaiting - links links - delayed timing rib - terry patterning - plated effects - pockets etc
