At the exhibit, the company will showcase the Busi Medical Terry Pantyhose high-production single-cylinder sock machine, equipped with Rimaglio device for automatic stitch-by-stitch toe closing.

Medical Terry Pantyhose

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

The machine is equipped with full electronic control and 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. The machine is equipped with a terry device for the production of the sandwich terry that is designed to enable a fully automatic switching from plain stitch to half terry and to full terry.

Rimaglio device

The Rimaglio device enables a typical classic linking to be achieved straight on the machine in a completely automatic way, the company reports. The automated device is 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.
