Stitch cam settings

The stitch cams are located in slots by studs and they may be raised or lowered to a different setting position by moving the stud along the slot (Fig. 18.3). Unless the rate of yarn feed is controlled, the setting of the stitch cam at knock-over will determine the stitch length because it controls the distance the head of the needle descends below the knock-over bit edge from the rest position. The alternating stitch cam settings are indicated by pointers on a calibrated scale on the outside of the cam-plate.

On hand flats, the adjustment of the settings is obtained by hand controls, whilst on modern electronically-controlled flats, each stitch cam is raised and lowered by its own step motor, so a wide range of stitch lengths can be achieved during the knitting of a garment.
