Italian narrow fabrics machine builder Comez will take part at this year's ITMA 2011 in Barcelona with important innovations including new and renewed machine models. The Italian company says it will highlight the excellence of its technology from its broad range of machinery for the production of narrow fabrics.
The company's exhibit of mechanical and electronic models of crochet knitting machines, a technology in which Comez is world leader, have been developed for many applications: narrow fabrics (lace, ribbons, bands) for underwear, passementerie, fancy yarns, textiles for technical applications, and special fabrics for outerwear.
Comez says the machines will feature the application of newly engineered solutions aimed at maximizing production efficiency and flexibility.
Comez' Fiorenzo Sanzani comments:
"We will show increased possibilities in a broadened range of patterns thanks to the CTJ/420 model, featuring a jacquard device and 14 weft bars."
"We will also exhibit new electronic double needle bed warp knitting machines, in working widths from 80 to 120 cm, specifically designed for the production of technical articles, fabrics, ribbons and bands."
Moving on to comment on the narrow woven fabrics area, Mr Sanzani said:
"In addition Comez will show new entirely electronic and jacquard weaving needle looms, featuring high performance in speed and productivity, capable of producing a broad range of unique ribbons and bands, with exclusive patterns and finishings."
Along with the a range of Comez accessory machines on display (warpers, winders, twisters, machines for manufacturing cords, "chainette cords" and gimp yarns), an all-new folding machine model will be presented for narrow fabrics, which Comez says is an ideal and practical solution that is specially designed to meet the packaging needs of many manufacturers.
Software programs for programming patterns, on all types of Comez machinery and needle looms will also be exhibited along with a new simulation software function for crochet and double needle bed machines.
