Computerised Jacquard Circular Knitting Machine offer the decisive advantages of convenient power-supply, compatibility with existing mechanical components, mirco-miniaturisation of circuitry, and economical data storage. In addition, computerised system do not require to be of a size proportionate to their task or to operate on a one-to-one ralationship with it.
Computerised selection or machine control is compatible with higher running speeds and eliminates complex mechanical arrangements, thus reducing supervisory requirements. It provides greater versatility as regards design parameters, simplifies the modification of repeat sequences and size, style and pattern-changing operations. And in same cases, enables changes to occurs whilst the machine is knitting.
Computerised Jacquard Circular Knitting Machine process information as binary digital logic signals that exist in two states, ON or OFF. This can be directly translated as 1 or 0, YES or NO, TRUE or FALSE, or magnetic ATTRACTION or REPULSION.
This information can be just as conveniently be translated into knitting states such as KNIT or TUCK, TUCK or MISS.
Although knitting is still a mechanical action between the yarn and the knitting elements, the design of tomorrow’s machines will be increasingly influenced by the facilities offered by computerised system. Thus whereas on mechanically controlled knitting machines nearly all the mechanical movements are linked to, and are striggered by, the revolution of the machine or traverse of the cam arriage, computerised controls can be dispersed and separately operated.
The Computerised Jacquard Circular Knitting Machine can be part of a network of management communication links. A single control unit can control a complete bank of machine if necessary.
