Modern single cylinder hosiery machines are able to produce socks in excellent quality and with high production rates. The quality of the knitted product depends heavily on the quality of the used needles.
Kern-Liebers Textile, a leading manufacturer of a range of high quality parts and components for high-performance knitting systems for the textiles industry, offers high quality needles for machines, which are used for the production of socks.
Needles from Kern-Liebers meet the OEM specifications of the global market leader Lonati. According to the German manufacturer, they fulfil highest demands in terms of quality, are highly flexible, and have perfect surface integrity and rounding. The high quality of the needles results in a trouble-free operation of the hosiery machine, the company reports.
In addition, Kern-Liebers Textile offers a comprehensive product range of machine parts, e.g. sinkers, transfer jacks, selectors, cylinder bars, and various others. Some of the parts are partially hardened in areas, which are subject to heavy strain, for example, the butt of selectors.
“Many years of experience in stamping technology enables the company to produce technically demanding parts, for example sophisticated transfer jack forms. Most of the parts have been developed in close co-operation with leading machine manufacturers,” the manufacturer explains.
With its range of products Kern-Liebers is one of the leading suppliers for the textile industry. The company’s customers are machine manufacturers, as well as textile manufacturers. The company offers sales and support provided through the international network of subsidiaries and representations in over 80 countries covering all major textile markets.
Established as a dedicated business unit in 1999, Kern- Liebers Textiles has since then grown continuously. The acquisition of Saxonia Textile Parts, the Bavarian needle plate manufacturer Paul Leistner and Sächsische Nadel- und Platinenfabriken laid the foundation for the companies' subsequent steep growth, a development complemented by the acquisition of the German needle manufacturer Haase and Kühn.
Under the umbrella brand Kern-Liebers Textile, the company says it has created a corporate network that is capable of meeting the widest range of requirements within the textile industry. The company offers a complete range of needles, components for weft and warp knitting machines. The company also offers a range of products for stenter frames and combing machines.
The complete Kern-Liebers range of products includes more than 55,000 different needles and sinkers making it one of the world's leading providers in terms of both quality and the range of products.
