Terrot knitting machines take SIMATEX fair by storm

05
Dec '08
From November 11th to 14th, 2008 the new edition of the Textile Machinery International Show has taken place at Costa Salguero Center. About 150 companies from several countries exhibited their latest technological innovations for the textile sector. Terrot was among the exhibitors and we presented a machine model which meets all the special interest of the market.

S4F348 Terrot Single Striper machines with 4- or 6- colour stripers and up to 4 needle tracks provide decisive advantage in production and huge application variety.

Diameter in inch - 30”
Gauge E - 24
Number of feeders - 48
Machine speed/ RPM - 28/32 (Speed up Function)
Number of needle tracks - 2
Knitting structure - Single-Jersey

TERROT invented the striper technology for knitting machines in 1950. We will now introduce a 4-colour Single-Jersey Striper with up to 4 cam tracks. While knitting large sequences in a single colour, the machine will automatically speed-up by about 15%, thereby increasing productivity. Thanks to this "Terrot Speed-up Function" the speed of 28 rpm will be increased to around 32 rpm which results in a production output unknown from other striper machines in the market. The long tradition of TERROT as a leading manufacturer of high performance striper machines will thus be continued by this introduction. The unique Terrot technique with independent drapers and scissors will also guarantee unmatched security in yarn changing of all synthetic and spun yarn qualities.

With a cautious optimism Terrot came to Simatex, Buenos Aires, Argentina. The economic conditions suggested a restrained propensity to invest in the run-up to the fair. However Terrots expectations to the Simatex were already fulfilled with the sale of the exhibition machine.

Compared to the most exhibitors for circular knitting machines which exhibited primarily standard machines for the production of Single-Jersey fabrics Terrot presented its advancement of the striper machine for 4 or 6 colour striper fabrics and met thereby the latest trend of the fashion industry in particular.

Already the first day of the fair was dominated by a positive mood at the exhibition booth. The great demand for Terrot circular knitting machines as well as numerous new customer contacts encourages our expectations to further planned investments in 2009.
