The Knitting Action of the Circular Rib Machine

The Knitting Action of the Circular Rib Machine

The knitting action of a circular rib machine consists of three action. There are :

(a) Clearing
(b) Yarn Feeding
(c) Knocking-over

The knitting action of a circular rib machine is shown in Fig.
(a) Clearing:
The cylinder and dial needles move out to clear the plain and rib loops formed in the previous cycle.

(b) Yarn Feeding:
The needles are withdrawn into their tricks so that the old loops are covered by the open latches and the new yarn is fed into the open hooks.

(c) Knocking-over:
The needles are withdrawn into their tricks so that the old loops are cast off and the new loops are drawn through them. In a gauge range from 5 to 20 npi, an approximately suitable count may be obtained using the formula NeB = G2/8.4, where NeB = cotton count and G = gauge in npi. For underwear fabric, a popular gauge is E 14 with a count of 1/30’s.
