Products and services

We produce a versatile program of circular knitting machines as well as warp knitting machines and special machines:

Circular knitting machines from 1/12” up to 20” in standard solution and from 21“ up to 40“ as individual solutions, produced according to the special demands of our customers.

Circular warp knitting machines from 1/12" to 12".

Horizontal-operating spiraling machine carrying 2 x 8/12/16/24 yarn cones, intended for the continuous online operation between two extruders covering with a layer of spiraling.

Other special textile machines are also part of our standard solutions, such as winders, cutters, caterpillars, etc.

All machines can be equipped with several accessories or additional devices, which render a still more efficient employment. Special demands of our customers influence the technical planning and customized solutions are in consideration at the construction.

Reducing the costs by automation is an important element in the developing process of our machines.
Circular knitting machine

The circular knitting machines can knit the following yarns:
Aramid, Wire, Glass fiber, Sisal, Monofilament, Plastic fibers, Cotton, etc.
Depending on the gauge, it is possible to knit yarn from 5dtex up to 20000 dtex.
A selection of products that can be produced on our circular knitting machines are as follows:
radiator Hose, garden hoses, shock absorber, sels, filter, knee pads, bandages and many more

Spiraling machine

Horizontal-operating spiraling machine carrying 2 x 8/12/16/24 yarn cones, intended for the continuous online operation between 2 extruders covering with a layer of spiraling or optional for knitted fabric on plastic-, silicon- and rubber tubes.

Circular warp knitting machine

News & Innovations

New Frame for storage up to 400 Kg knitting material with a laying device for the fabric in straight or crosswise Version

The Frame is for single jersey / double jersey / plush / interlock knitting heads avaiable. the Diameter can go from 6" up to 30".
all rotating devices to lay the fabric are adjusted by electronical controlled drives. The box can be move out by rolles and can go directly on a forclifter.
The size of boxes are dependig on the fabric width . sample is: 460 mm width and 1600 mm height and 1180 mm deep.

High Speed spiral machine for fuel/ garden/ middle pressure hoses with a patent yarn Tension device

This machine is especially suitable for high-speed spiralizing up to maximum 2x32 bobbins. The number of revolution of this machine is 700 rpm. 1.200 rpm. are possible depending on the number of bobbins, weight of the bobbins, shape of bobbins and from use of the thread-tension control device.
Hoses up to a diameter of 100 mm can be spiralized, depending on the machine construction.

With the RHU-S machine the yarn feed unit is equalising the tension from each yarn position and will be regulate by a positive driven yarn feeder device to adjust the tension during running of the machine. The patented yarn feeder equalize the yarn tension from bobbin to bobbin. Through the design of the yarn feeder, it will be build up a thread tension, which can be adjust for the type of hoses over a touchscreen, during the running of the machine and Line. The yarn tension can be adjust from 50 cN up to 700 cN. This can be all change during the running of the machine without stopping the line. Therefor the waste will be reduce, the quality of hose is higher and downtime is reduced to a minimum. The line must be not stop to change the adjustment on the machine.
The machine can also equip with one knitting head. (Option),
Thereby the machine can only knit or knit in combination with 1 layer spiralizing.
Patented thread tension control during the run
Coreless manufacturing up to 700 rpm. depending on the hose type and quality.
The two-sided bearing ensures a still running of the machine and not a one side bearing construction.
A further extruder or other progress can be inserted between deck I and
deck II by means of the divided machine version.

New concept for wire knitting machines to change the knitting head and gauge easily in the range of frame size

With our new concept, you can change the knitting head and the machine gauge easily from 8” to 15”, from 16” to 25” and from 25” to 34”. The change of a knitting head takes around two to three hours.
