Italy: Knit­ting ma­chine man­u­fac­turer San­toni to fo­cus on footwear with X MA­CHINE

Stitch World - - TECH TRACK -

San­toni, the Ital­ian knit­ting ma­chin­ery man­u­fac­turer, in joint ef­forts with Lonati, an Ital­ian hosiery equip­ment man­u­fac­turer, has come up with in­no­va­tive X MA­CHINE that can knit count­less in­tar­sia items for seam­less up­pers.

This in­no­va­tive ma­chine is the re­sult of ef­forts of R& D de­part­ment of two com­pa­nies with a spe­cial fo­cus on footwear and coun­ters the chal­lenges ex­ist­ing in the mar­ket. It al­lows hav­ing dis­tinct mapped ar­eas ac­cord­ing to the type of yarn used and ac­cord­ing to the var­i­ous struc­ture com­bi­na­tions, so as to pro­duce a prod­uct ready for the ap­pli­ca­tion of the sole, which is the last pro­duc­tion stage of a shoe.

The pro­duc­tion time of­fered by X MA­CHINE ranges from 5 to 7 min. per piece. It will also help in min­imis­ing cost with the qual­ity, re­li­a­bil­ity and ease of use it has to of­fer.

The shoe up­pers have ded­i­cated ar­eas aimed at match­ing un­lim­ited pat­terns and colour com­bi­na­tions, in­clud­ing three- di­men­sional ar­eas and eye­lets for the laces, giv­ing these up­pers a unique shape. The fully elec­tronic X MA­CHINE of­fers in­fi­nite pat­tern­ing pos­si­bil­i­ties and colour com­bi­na­tions. It also in­cludes a revo­lu­tion­ary in­tar­sia sys­tem that al­lows cre­at­ing un­prece­dented 3D pat­terns.

An­other ma­chine de­signed by San­toni to cater to the chal­lenges of the footwear mar­ket, is MEC- MOR cir­cu­lar knit­ting ma­chine. Con­sid­ered the most com­plete knit­ting ma­chine in mo­tion, it solves prob­lems like cutting of the lat­eral selvedges and rolling up of the knit­ted fabric for the fi­nal phase of the footwear pro­duc­tion process.

Adding to this, in terms of pro­duc­tiv­ity, the ma­chine en­sures max­i­mum pre­ci­sion and per­for­mance of seam­less up­pers be­cause of the large num­ber of feeds.

The pro­duc­tion time of­fered by X MA­CHINE ranges from 5 to 7 min­utes per piece
