Busi launches LIGHT MP sock knitting machine

 

Italian sock knitting machine manufacturer Busi Giovanni has launched a brand new low price version of its IDEA MP sock knitting machine, called the LIGHT MP.

Even though the machine is competitively priced, the new LIGHT MP, is still 100% manufactured at Busi’s Italian plant near Brescia.

The LIGHT MP will have the same usual high-quality components which are used in all of the company’s machines, although the major difference is that it will not be equipped with the dial latch needles that Busi is known for worldwide and which enable the knitting of true rib socks on a single cylinder machine.

“We aim to offer our customers a machine with a much more competitive price, but still with the same undisputed quality Busi has always adopted over the past 55 years of our activity. We have recently optimized our model IDEA MP, bearing now the name of LIGHT MP and being proposed at a very competitive price,” the Italian machine builder said in a statement this afternoon.

LIGHT MP is a high production electronically controlled single cylinder knitting machine for the production of socks for men and children. The machine is capable of knitting plain and terry structures and needle selection is made by 7 electromechanical actuators that enable the machine to knit following fabrics:

  • Double welt
  • Embroidery patterns in 5 colours plus the ground
  • Embroidery patterns on a mock rib elastic base in 4 colours plus the ground
  • Floated mesh patterns with additional 4 colours patterns

The machine is also equipped with a striping unit and with a terry device for the production of the sandwich terry and it is possible to produce plain stitch, half terry and full terry in the same sock without the need for manual change.

Additionally the LIGHT MP machine is provided with a device for the high speed change of the saw blade that allows different lengths of cut - the saw blade is automatically stopped during heel production.
