Singlebed Raschel Machines with Latch Needles

The stitch formation on these machines (picture 132) differs slightly from the stitch formation on flat warp knitting machines with spring beard needles.

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.
