Latest value added models

Model X96F, eight lock (2+6 tracks) circular knitting machine, 34 inch in 28 gauge. The aim of this model is to create pattern capability to replace majority of mini-jacquard in terms of fabric versatility, especially in sports and athletic wear.

Model 90F, ultra high speed single jersey open width in 30 inch, 28 gauge. The machine speed factor is up to 1050, 35 rpm and has the latest central rolling take up system to be able to offer better fabric tension control and even courses and wales in the whole fabric roll.

New evolutionary E series

Pioneering home textiles models

Model PL-KDDSCJ with individual dial and cylinder jacquard selection system. According to Pai Lung this model is able to offer a variety of high quality patterns on each side of double face fabrics. “The beauty of this model’s product is beyond comparison with the weaving dobby system or single face electronic jacquard machines’ performance,” the company says.

High speed single jersey by Vanguard Pai Lung

In addition to the above, Pai Lung’s new partner, Vanguard Pail Lung is to show its high speed single jersey model in 22 gauge, 24 inch diameter at the Pai Lung booth.
