The modular construction concept of our machines makes it possible for us to offer a customized and performance-oriented solution according to the special demands of our customers production within a short time: modular solutions - customized!
The customer chooses his very specific configuration from our broad spectrum of high performance modules, exactly shaped to the individual requirements of the production process. In this way, the new machine joins seamlessly into current production. Our customers gain by our extensive knowledge about optimized processes and can count on our service at any time.
The idea for a completely new product with innovative production engineering, the refinement and optimization of current process engineering with the destination of costs optimization or at all the wish for no more available production engineering and a the corresponding maintenance - HARRY LUCAS has the solution!
High performance single jersey machine with Litespeed needle for complex pattern structures over 24 systems, with 4-feed control, central stitch adjustment and increased field of adjustment inside the mesh and the plate deduction for extreme patterns and inputs. Production speed: 150 rpm.
High performance double-jersey knitting machine with rubber-/ lycra-shot-entry for bandages with special lock for this application. Rib-lock adjustment for an easy change of the cylinder and the rib plate. Production speed: 100 rpm.
The machine is intended for the production of cylindrical, conical and curved tubular fabrics for knee-, ankle- and elbow support. It is equipped with a dial-needle selection with new developed three-way-technology, a needle selection in the dial lock, central stitch adjustment, single adjustment of the systems, electronically change from curved to straight knitting, lycra-rubber fournisseur for the production of the form, finish edge, central dial lock adjustment. By this combination now it is possible even to produce complex knee-supports, which yet otherwise only on flat knitting machines were possible. Even by this significantly increased speed now a processing time of just 90-100 seconds per knee-support is possible.
This machine is intended for the production of endless single jersey tubular fabric. It operates with a fixed cylinder and rotating cam box. The fabric can be used for a very wide variety of applications, such as plain cords with inlet or tubes with filling granulated or recycling material, rubber tubes, cable etc. A different raw material can be used, such as synthetic fibres, glass-fibre, stainless steel; cupper and carbon fibres.
First circular knitting machine with 4-ring-laying for the production of complex patterns for the packaging industry or for technical textiles. All laying rings are selected fully electronically and can be programmed at will.
High performance circular knitting machine with automatic change of the bobbin rolls and cardboard sleeve feed for the bobbin core. At 400 rpm and with 8 systems the machine reaches a productive capacity of 5 meters per minute.
7. RHU with caterpillar
High performance machine for the online production of knitted fabric onto plastic-, silicon- and rubber hoses for garden-hoses/radiator-hoses/turbo-charge hoses etc.The worlds fastest knitting machine with up to 5200 needle movements and with a productive capacity of 20 meters per minute. 1 ½" diameter with 8 systems, compound needles (patented by Lucas) with rotating bobbin-ring with up to 11kg bobbin weight.
