Singlecylinder sock machines

Mechanically-controlled double-cylinder machines of the Bentley Komet type used to dominate the manufacture of socks but, with the encroachment of microprocessor controls, the simpler and cheaper single-cylinder machines now account for two thirds of new machinery sales. Factors influencing this trend include:

  • Greater pattern scope at increased speeds using mono-magnetic needle selection.
  • More colours per course when using motif embroidery plating, with up to 7 colours per course or a total of 21 colours in the sock.
  • Ability to knit imitation links-links designs.
  • Possibility of knitting new design features such as 4-colour intarsia with terry sole.
  • Ability to knit tights with pelerine transfer stitch designs.
