Germany-based leading Textile Machinery Association VDMA has announced to hold the next technology webtalk on 17 February under the theme – ‘Technologies for fine gauge fabrics in the circular knitting industry’.
The association says that the circular knitted fabrics in fine gauges are used in sportswear, homewear as well as in underwear and lingerie. However, they are just as trendy as they are challenging in terms of production.
Since a high-quality fine-touch product requires an optimal combination of yarns, circular knitting machines, needles and dyeing, the industry needs opinion to get it done in a right way.
One of the speakers in the webtalk will be Wolfgang Mueller from Mayer & Cie, who will talk about the challenges that fine-gauge circular knitting entails. Wolfgang will also present an optimal fine-gauge set-up for circular knitting machines. Yarn selection, yarn feeding, stitch formation and takedown are the four key factors for a premium product in the knitting process.
Another prominent name is Roland Simmendinger, who belongs to Groz-Beckert. Roland will provide an insight into the high precision technology of circular knitting machine elements. The presentation will illustrate the challenges to knit a high-quality fine gauge fabric.
What solutions are needed when it comes to dyeing of fine gauge circular fabrics! Ralf H. Stange from Thies will throw light on these solutions in his session.
