The 28 gauge, 30 inch diameter, 96 feed two track S296-1 produces single jersey with elastane at a speeds of up to 33 rpm, giving a speed factor  990 ( 33 rpm at 30 inch diameter).



As early as 1999 in Paris, Terrot was first to introduce a single jersey circular knitting machine where the tubular fabric was cut and wound up in open width directly on the machine. The improved S296-1 is now available with a more compact open width frame which offers easy handling by the operator. The frame size reduction was demanded by the market for a long time. The speed factor is 990 (33 rpm in 30 inch).

With its new 90 feeds, the UCC572M will be in a class of its own with a productivity increase of 50% and nearly 30 kg/hour production output. Terrot add that 3-way technique on all 90 feeders UCC572 M permits unlimited of applications.
