Comez Crochet and Warp Knitting
COMEZ was present at the ITMA with
innovative machineries in crochet and warp knitting field,
interpreting and offering solutions to the market specific
All the novelties of the Jakob Müller
Group, COMEZ machines were released and exhibited for the first
time during that exhibition.
COMEZ showed its 800 ACO/EL, a crochet
knitting machine with electronically controlled yarn tension and
stitch density regulation, and the DNB/EL-32-12B, an
electronically controlled warp knitting machine with double
needle bed for the production of technical and garment textiles.
Electronic warp knitting machine for the production of a wide
range of different articles
The new DNB/EL-32-12B, shown at ITMA 2019,
is the latest evolution of the COMEZ electronically controlled
warp knitting machines with double needle bed. It allows to
create a huge quantity of different samples, in all possible
gauges, using a single machine with a compact design that
integrates all the devices, including the beam support. This
machine is suitable for the prototyping and production of many
different articles, such as technical textiles like nettings,
geo textiles and industrial fabrics; medical textiles such as
bandages, nettings, dressings and disposable pants; shoe uppers
(3D fabrics) and garment textiles and many others.
The machine is available now with 12 guide
bars electronically controlled in order to develop advanced
technical fabrics. The DNB/EL-32-12B has an electronically
long-throw device with a maximum stroke of 560 mm, which allows
the customer to produce reinforced fabrics; to create technical
textiles with continuous weft insertion for example using
conductive yarns and last but not the least to design innovative
technical fabrics for furnishing according to the product shown
on the machine at ITMA 2019.
Any type of yarn can be processed
according to the machine gauge: natural fibre yarns such as wool
and cotton; synthetic yarns; special yarns such as aramid, glass
fibre yarns, metallic yarns; high tenacity PP and PES yarns,
monofilament yarns, etc.
crochet knitting machine with hybrid control
The 800 ACO/EL is a crochet knitting
machine with compound needles, electronically controlled yarn
tension device and stitch density regulation. This hybrid
control machine merges the economic advantages and the speed of
a mechanical structure to the straightforward handling given by
the electronic component.
The 800 ACO/EL, recommend for the
production of both elastic and rigid fabrics and tapes, is ideal
for products with lock-stitch structure. Some of the products
and applications that can be produced are as following:
- Medical and orthopaedic textiles
(body belts, gauzes and bandages).
- Astrakhan with close loop.
- Articles for house cleaning.
- Furnishing ribbons and tapes.
- Sportswear ribbons.
The compound needle machine is available
now with 800 mm working width. It is equipped with 8 weft bars
controlled by chain links with involute profile. The electronic
operating system allows to select different stitch density
values in one single product as well as different values for
weft feeding and elasticity.
The compound needle makes the machine
highly versatile as it allows the processing in the warp, in
addition to classic synthetic yarns (polyester, polyamide,
polypropylene), of natural yarns (cotton, wool) and special
fibres (aramid, fibreglass) as well.
