The D4S is a fully automatic toe-linking device for sock knitting machines. It links socks directly on the knitting machine so that no operator intervention is required. 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. Time consumption in the sock knitting process can significantly be reduced.
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.
With its Deimo knitting solutions, Stäubli is also a leading manufacturer of drive and control systems for a wide range of applications in the knitting and hosiery industries. The manufacturer constantly analyses customers’ needs and integrates solutions in the development of new products.
