Santoni has come up with an entirely new range of low-cost but highly productive knitting machines aimed specifically at the Chinese market, created by combining European technology with local production processes.

Mr Gianpiero Valsecchi, Sales Manager for India & Middle East informed Fibre2fashion that the range having a new 12 feed version of its basic CHN range of seamless machines has been introduced to combat the burgeoning competition in the country.

Built at the company's new facility in Shanghai, the new CHN12 has been designed to offer higher productivity and options for manufacturing of jacquard fabrics but at price competitive rates for meeting its customer preferences.

The basic model on display at the recent ITMA Asia + CITME had 12 feeds, compared with 8 feeds on a number of other models belonging to the competitors. This has acted as an added advantage for the company allowing it to compete in the region both in terms of price and productivity. Although not very suitable for customers in other markets, the CHN12 does help Santoni compete in certain regions in Asia.

Moreover, the fact that the model does not have a dial also helps to keep the price down and meets the demand for those fabric manufacturers that want to produce seamless garments on a low-cost machine.

An added advantage for the customers of the company is that since the manufacturing base is in China, clients are exempted from paying any import taxes on the machines ensuring more savings on cost.

The CHN12 is mainly used for the production of intimate apparel, pyjamas and terry fabric, the latter being increasingly popular in China has a huge demand.

A notable feature of the CHN12 having a single selection point is the inclusion of a saw and a knife for simpler yarn cutting and added cams for tuck and miss stitches. The model on display was a 14 inch diameter knitting in 28G.

The company also displayed a prototype of its latest Vignoni circular knitting technology and a Panda SJ3.0 model consisting of a vignoni knitting head on a Chinese built frame to target the Chinese market in particular.

Used for the production of jersey, piquet and lay-in fleece, the SJ3.0 can be equipped with four cam tracks with a single cambox per feeder with exchangeable cams. Optional extras include elastomeric feeders and a fabric scanner.

A 30 inch diameter model in 40G was also put on display, although the single jersey system is available in diameters ranging from 24 inch to 40 inch and from 16G – 40G. And at three feeds per inch, the 90 feed model on display, demonstrated the high speed necessary to meet manufacturer's demand here in China.
