Busi Giovanni to exhibit innovative machinery at Yiwutex 2017

Since 1958 Busi Giovanni has specialised in the design and construction of single-cylinder machines with rib needles in the dial. © Busi Giovanni  Italian hosiery knitting machine builder Busi Giovanni will be exhibiting two of its circular knitting sock machines at the upcoming Yiwutex China international textile machinery exhibition, which will be held from 13-15 June at Yiwu International Expo Centre, Zhejiang Province, China.

On display will be company’s Busi Medical Pantyhose and Busi Twin Layer single-cylinder sock machines, both equipped with Rimaglio device for the automatic, stitch-by-stitch, toe closing, situated at the side of the knitting machine.

It downloads the sock from the machine, after completion of the knitting operation, and it transfers the sock to the linking device, where it is sewn loop by loop. The sock is turned inside out, so that the linking remains on the inside of the sock, resulting in a perfect traditional-looking linking. After being sewn, the sock, already reversed to the right side, is removed from the machine and is ready for the next boarding operation.

Busi Medical Pantyhose

Busi Medical Pantyhose is a high-production single-cylinder sock machine with latch needles in the dial for the production of true rib or plain stitch medical compression socks in Compression Classes 1, 2 and 3. The machine is equipped with full electronic control.

The machine features two feeds, for plain and rib fabric, as well as for laid-in elastic fabric. The compression graduation is achieved both through the automatic stiffening that can be activated on all step motors and through the graduation of the covered elastic yarn feed.

Busi Twin Layer

Busi Twin Layer is a high production single-cylinder sock machine with latch needles in the dial that enable it to produce technical sport socks with double fabric. The machine is derived from the model Busi Idea Terry and it has all the same features and knitting possibilities of this model. The machine is provided with a patented device that uses the dial needle for the production of an internal layer and the cylinder needles for the production of the external layer, the company reports.

The two fabrics that form the sock are knitted contemporarily and can be joined as required, they merge into one single fabric at the welt at the heel and at the toe of the sock. This way the two fabrics cannot slide one onto the other.
