Yarn Unwinding Option

SUPPORTING NEW INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS FOR KNITTING THROUGH STABLE YARN FEED

SHIMA SEIKI's new Yarn Unwinding Option is an essential tool for supporting industrial textile applications in knitting. Normally when knitting with stiff materials such as metallic and monofilament yarns, the yarn has a tendency to kink or twist, making it practically impossible to feed smoothly into the knitting machine. To alleviate this situation, the yarn Unwinding Option is equipped with a motorized bobbin that actively unwinds yarn in the direction of the wind, providing smooth and stable yarn feed with precise control over feed amount and tension. Yarns for industrial applications can come in different packages, so the Yarn Unwinding Option supports different bobbin sizes. Replacing bobbin mounts allows various bobbin types to be mounted as well. The Yarn Unwinding Option also works in coordination with the knitting machine, allowing realtime adjustments in bobbin rotation speed according to the amount of yarn consumption. With the Yarn Unwinding Option, such knitted applications for filters, tubing and protective knitwear can be realized.

Bobbins are mounted on motorized bobbin mounts that turn in sync with yarn consumption, providing smooth yearn feed into the knitting machine.

Supporting a Variety of Yarns

Supporting a Variety of Yarns

Previously impossible to knit, tape yarn (ribbon yarn), monofilament and metallic yarns, can now be knit with ease by feeding yarn into the knitting machine without twisting or kinking. For the fashion industry for example, inlay knit fabrics can be produced by weaving-in special yarn such as tape yarn.

Supporting a Variety of Industries

Supporting a Variety of Industries

By supporting the use of bobbins and materials previously impossible to use, the Yarn Unwinding Option opens the door to new opportunities for new applications in knitting, such as automotive, aerospace, medical, home furnishings and other industrial textile applications.
