Leading Italian socks knitting machine builder Busi Giovanni is partnering with Ponte Nossa (Bergamo), based Canalair Engineering, a manufacturer and installer of complete systems for filtration, humidification, conditioning, ventilation, and heating and cooling systems for industry. Busi will now offer its customers a new air suction solution which will help their machinery run more efficiently and create a cleaner working environment for their employees.

“We do want your production with your BUSI machinery to run more efficiently and more smoothly. And we do want your personnel to work in a cleaner environment that makes them happier and then more productive,” said Busi’s technical director Leonardo Busi.

“Consequently, we have recently agreed on a partnership with Italy-based Canalair one of the leading air-suction plant manufacturers on a global scale.”

“The suction of technological air represents only the first step of intervention within a modern production room. Canalair together with Busi then suggest a balancing system entirely integrated with the suction system, which in certain situations takes advantage of the hot and dry air coming out from the manufacturing process, and therefore from the filtering system,” Mr Busi explained.

Busi lists the following advantages for plant owners:

 -Stability of process conditions: control of thermo-hygrometric conditions (summer-winter/ day-night)

-Optimal conditions for management of all electronic components

-Longer UPTIME

-Environmental dedusting

-Reduction of cleaning and maintenance times

-Quality (cleanliness) of your final product

-Environmental quality

-Better conditions for operators on the line

Since 1958 Busi Giovanni has specialised in the design and construction of single-cylinder machines with rib needles in the dial for the production of high-quality stockings, socks and tights. The company is a supplier to the most important producers of stockings, socks and tights, for the men's, women's and children's markets - classic, patterned, sports, technical-sports, as well as medical, with special solutions for graduated compression.
