New interlock-based knitting for textiles

Apr '09
Textile fabrics are produced from webs of fibres by bonding, fusing or interlocking to make nonwoven fabrics and felts. But their physical properties affect their potential end usage. Mechanical manipulation of yarn into fabric is the most versatile method of manufacturing textile fabrics for a wide range of end-uses.

Three aspects are used for manipulating yarns into textile fabrics; interweaving, intertwining and interloping. All the methods have evolved from hand manipulated techniques from the traditional way of application on primitive frames into sophisticated automated machinery.

Knitted structures are progressively built-up from row after row of intermeshed loops. The newly-fed yarn is converted into a new loop in each needle hook. The needle draws the new loop head first through the old loop, which it has retained from the previous knitting cycle.

This method of knitting exhibits more strength on width and length compared with normal structure due to the additional drawn yarns among the loops.
