Advances in Knitting Technology by Kin-Fan Au

By Kin-Fan Au

Knitted textiles and clothing symbolize nearly one 3rd of the worldwide cloth industry. This e-book presents an up-to-date connection with knitting know-how, with particular specialise in the advancements in knitted cloth creation and cloth applications. 

The first set of chapters start with a quick overview of the elemental ideas of knitting, together with the kinds and suitability of yarns for knitting in addition to the houses accomplished via knitted materials. the second one a part of the e-book examines the foremost advances in knitting, resembling clever yarn supply structures in weft knitting, knitted cloth composites and advances in round knitting. The concluding part of the publication provides a range of case experiences the place complex knitted items are used. themes diversity from knitted constructions for moisture administration to weft knitted buildings for sound absorption.

Adanur, Technomic Publishing Co. , Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA 2 Classification of knitting Abstract: Knitting is primarily classified as weft knitting and warp knitting. This classification is based on the direction of movement of yarn with respect to the direction of fabric formation. If the yarns run in the width or cross-wise direction with reference to the direction of fabric formation during knitting, then the process of knitting is called weft knitting.

The plain structure is made in single jersey / bed machine whereas the other three are made in double jersey / bed machine. Sometimes different design elements/devices are fitted in knitting machine and then those machines are given names according to the element/ device attached to the machine. For example such machines are 10:50:57 AM (a) (b) (c) (d) (e) knitting knitting knitting knitting knitting machine machine machine machine machine with with with with with pattern wheel jacquard multiple cam track arrangement intarsia facility CAD and CAM.

Sinker is used in both weft and warp knitting in combination with latch needle as well bearded needle. Sinkers may be unnecessary when knitting (circular weft) with two needle beds as the Weft knitting elements and loop formation 25 second bed restrain the fabric loops whilst the other set needles move. Sinker may perform one or more of the following functions depending upon its shape and movement as well as the type of the machine: (a) loop formation, (b) holding down (c) knocking over. The typical shapes of sinker commonly found in knitting machine are shown in Fig.
