Tension Measuring Machine

Supporting Stable Knitting by Measuring Stretch Yarn

SHIMA SEIKI's new Tension Measuring Machine is an essential tool for supporting compression products in knitting. Normally when knitting with stretch yarn for WHOLEGARMENT, fine adjustment of yarn feed amount was required to compensate for the difference in yarn usage for front body and back body due to the push/pull effect of yarn feed tension. By measuring the stretch property of yarn and sending that data to the knitting machine, the Tension Measuring Machine can set the appropriate yarn feed amount for both push and pull. In addition, by attaching tension sensors to the i-DSCS+DTC device on the knitting machine, yarn feed amount can be adjusted automatically while monitoring tension during knitting. The tension measuring machine contributes to improved quality and higher efficiency when knitting with stretch yarn for medical and sportswear applications.
