Busi Twin Layer machine to now have 4.5" diameter

Italian textile machinery producer Busi Giovanni said it is currently developing a larger diameter of its Busi Twin Layer knitting machine and will now feature a 4.5" cylinder and a needle count up to 168.

“The Busi Twin Layer is a high production single cylinder sock machine with latch needles in the dial that enable it to produce technical sport socks with twin fabrics,” a press release stated.

The machine is provided with a patented device that uses the dial needle for the production of an internal layer and the cylinder needles for the production of the external layer.

The two fabrics that form the sock are knitted contemporarily and can be joined at the whish and merge in to one fabric at the heel and toe of the sock, which ensures the two fabrics do not slide one onto the other.

The two fabrics can be knitted using different fibres and the machine is provided with a device for the selected terry, offering the possibility to produce 'technical socks' having features that were not possible earlier.

“In addition, there is also the possibility to have the double layer in only certain parts of the sock, either the foot or sole, which offers users to knit highly innovative products,” the company observed.

In addition to this, in case of patterned socks, the yarn ends that normally are inside the sock will be packed in between the two layers thus ensuring a better comfort and a perfect wearing of the sock.

“Such model will be capable of knitting wider technical and sport socks, but still with the same double-layer feature that makes this machine definitely unique in the market,” Busi Giovanni informed.

The machine also offers 3-colour patterns plus ground and can be equipped with its Rimaglio device for the automatic stitch-by-stitch toe closing.

The device enables a typical classic linking to be achieved straight on the machine in a completely automatic way.

The automated device is situated at the side of the knitting machine and downloads the sock from the machine and after completing knitting, transfers the sock to the linking device, where it is sewn, loop by loop.

The sock is turned inside out, so that the linking remains on the inside of the sock, resulting in a perfect traditional-looking linking.

After being sewn, the sock, already reversed to the right side, is removed from the machine and is ready for the next boarding operation.

Busi Giovanni further added that considering that the new model of Busi Twin Layer is still under development stage, the delivery of the first 4.5" diameter machines will be done after five months. (AR)
