Single-bed Raschel machines with latch needles incorporate the following working components: the needles - the guide bars - the sinkers.
Sinkers only feature a nose, which retains the stitch while the needle is rising.
The fabric is sustained by a plate and is delivered in a direction almost parallel to the needle.
