COMEZ is a global leader in the technology of crochet and warp knitting machines. Since October 2012, COMEZ combined business activity in this application fields with Jakob Müller AG and therefore the two brands will jointly exhibit their machines at Techtextil 2015.
COMEZ has made available a range of machines which are especially suited to producing a countless number of articles for technical use: ribbons, bands, plain and tubular fabrics, 3-D fabrics, plain and tubular netting, which are employed in a multitude of varied applications in several sectors like medical, geo-textile, building, automotive, industrial, transport, sports and leisure, furniture, etc.
At Techtextil 2015 the Italian company will display in operation the COMEZ ACOTRONIC 8B/600, which is a high efficiency electronic crochet knitting machine using compound needles, for the production of a wide range of ribbons, technical and medical textiles, both elastic and non-elastic.
The machine comes in gauge 15 n.p.i., with a 600 mm working width and is fitted with 8 weft bars with electronic control. The compound needle renders the machine highly versatile as it allows the processing in the warp – in addition to classic synthetic yarns (polyester, polyamide) – of natural yarns (cotton, wool) and special fibres (kevlar, fibreglass, carbon) as well.
The electronic operating system allows for the creation of elaborate patterns, with very long pattern repeats.
COMEZ machines present ideal characteristics for the production of technical textiles:
- a high degree of versatility when using special yarns, which can be processed safely while maintaining high operating speeds (natural yarns such as wool and cotton, special yarns such as Kevlar, aramid and glass fibres, copper and zinc yarns, etc.);
- COMEZ machines can produce a wide range of warp knit constructions weaves (such as closed knit tricot, open knit tricot, closed chaining effect, open chaining effect) which confer to the fabric excellent characteristics in dimensional stability or three-dimensional effects;
- thanks to the exclusive use of the COMEZ electronic drive system, it is possible to obtain very long and varied pattern repetitions and special effects on fabrics, guaranteeing a constant and uniform yarn feed.
COMEZ invites you at BOOTH 3.0 B19.
