Staubli’s D4S is a fully automatic toe-linking device for sock knitting machines. It’s based on an idea for automatically linking socks directly on the knitting machine so that no operator intervention is required. It is available for sock knitting machines with a diameter of 3½” to 4½” and from 8 to 19 gauges.
Stäubli is a textile machinery manufacturer, offering an extensive machinery range that provides mills with increased advantages in terms of reliability, long service life and versatility in application.
Once the D4S is installed on a knitting machine, adjusting to different gauge ranges is fast and easy. The D4S represents a quantum leap for knitters who want to excel in the hosiery market. Some of the key benefits of the innovative device include significantly higher productivity in sock manufacturing, short idle time of the machine for removal of the finished knitted socks, and rapid payback thanks to price/performance ratio. The machine is also easily adaptable to various diameters.
The Swiss company, founded in 1892, offers automatic drawing-in machines, the latest generation of dobbies, electronic jacquard machines, carpet weaving systems, technical weaving systems, and knitting solutions. Machinery from Staubli is known for exceptional reliability, unsurpassed production speeds, and very long service life.
