KNITSTORE K52 - Storage feeder


The storage feeder KNITSTORE K52 with vertical winding body and yarn separation is used for yarn feeding on knitting machines with regular and irregular yarn consumption. The feeder is equipped with CAN BUS communication and is operated with 57 V DC. The direction of rotation of the winding disc can be adjusted according to the yarn to be processed (S- or Z twist). The yarn quantity is controlled by a newly developed optical mechanical sensor system. 
A circumferential LED light strip provides information about the current operating status of the feeder. The tool-free input tension with modular structure allows a consistent operating procedure in different mounting positions of the units. The KNITSTORE K52 is equipped with a quick cleaning function of the winding disc as well as a special folding mechanism to ensure quick and easy replacement/cleaning of yarn output tension.
