Flat Knitting Machine Technology
The knitted fabric produced by flat knitting method has two sides. One is the right side which face outwards and away from the wearer's body but towards the viewer. The second one is the wrong side that faces inwards and towards the wearer's body but away from the viewer.
Flat knitting is dissimilar to the other technique of generating knitted garments i.e. circular knitting in which we knit the fabric from the same side. Flat knitting is much more complicated than that of the circular knitting technology. It is because for creating the same stitch, two different movements take place. One motion occurs while performing the knitting from the right side and another while proceeding on the wrong side. Due to it, there can occur the formation of a knit stitch on the right side and purl stitch on the wrong side. This thing can result in the variation of the gauge of knitting in the alternating rows of the stockinette fabrics. But with time and practice or by employing needles of two different sizes, the manufacturers can become able to eliminate it.
While performing the method of flat knitting, we have to turn the fabric usually after every row. However, in double knitting involving two types of yarns and double-pointed needles, we can rotate the material after every second row.
For carrying out the procedure of flat knitting, we can either utilize hands or single-bed or double bed flat knitting machines. Our company is the foremost flat knitting machine manufacturer in Ludhiana. We incorporate the latest and most advanced technology and components in our devices to make them compatible with the ongoing trends.
A flat or V-bed knitting machine includes two flat needle-beds set in an upside-down "V" shape. The width of these needle beds can range up to 2.5 m. A carriage, also called by the name of cam-box or head is also present which moves backwards and forwards across the needle-beds. The primary function of this cam-box is to make the needles to selectively, knit, insert or transfer the stitches.
