Italy-based Santoni S.p.A. reports it has improved its SM8-TOP1V knitting machine increasing its
speed factor by 40 percent compared to that of other Santoni knitting machines. The speed increase
along with a gauge change to 40 gauge result in a knitting time of four minutes for basic garments,
Santoni reports. Even at the higher output, seamless comfort and quality is maintained according to
the company, and different designs and knitting structures still may be used on the machine.
The company displayed the improved machine at the recent Expotextil-Perú in Lima.
