Mecmor Compact to be on display at ITMA 2011
Jul '11
Santoni Group of Italy has named several innovations which it proposes to showcase at this year's ITMA 2011 to be held in Barcelona.

The innovations that the company has announced include a completely new circular sweater knitting machine, named the Mecmor Compact.

The new edition of famous Mecmor open-width garment length knitwear or sweater knitting machine is more compact, economical and has better flexibility than previous versions of Mecmor.

The new version is also more flexible in the sense that the knit and transfer systems have now been merged.

As shared by the Group's Marketing Manager, Patrick Silva, their world-famous Mecmor open panel circular knitting machine, which is identified as most accomplished knitwear machine in circular motion, has now been redesigned into a new small-sized model called the 'Compact'.

While the new version includes most of the positive features of big model, it also possess some key new features like the ability to increase production as the feeds are no more segregated as those machines specialised in knit stitches or transfer stitches have. Each of the feed in the new model is totally inbuilt and can accordingly be adjusted as per the selection, Silva said.

The company has always supported the belief that production of circular knitwear is an essential compliment for flatbed knitting and hence a knitting mill should comprise of both kinds, more so because the circular system certainly has remarkably high productivity in churning out fine quality fabrics, Silva said.

He further added that the compact design of the new model with most advanced electronic management, and its reduced investment cost has made production of circular knitwear production easier while retaining all the circular benefits of excellent stitch quality and best productivity, particularly in finer gauges.

At ITMA 2011, Santoni would display its 18 gauge Mecmor Compact machine in 33 inch diameter.
