An expert in rib, 8-lock and interlock structures

Full bandwidth of rib structures on 2.2 feeders
The D4 2.2 II has 2.2 feeders per inch and achieves a very high level of productivity for fine rib and many other 8-lock fabrics such as Milano rib, thermal, double face or spacer. Fine knitwear of up to gg40 is another of the machine’s specialities. Equipped with a wear-free 3-hole ceramic yarn guide, the D4 2.2 II is a model of flexibility, due in part to the elastomer plating capability that is a basic function of the D4 2.2 II.

From a rib specialist to interlock mass production
In the HPI version the D4-2.2 II is a mass producer of plain inter- lock fabrics. This version comes with 4.4 feeders per inch. At 30 inches that is 132 feeders at an impressive 34 rpm – a level of productivity unequalled anywhere in the world. The D4 2.2 HPI processes both filament and fibre yarns in interlock production. The central stitch adjustment makes it child’s play to use.

Spacer fabric with a wide range of choices
With the D4 2.2 II, spacer fabric can be knitted with the finest gauges. The knitter can work with all of the needles or with a 1:1 selection of needles. The D4 2.2 II comes with an optimised yarn supply that prevents fluctuations in tension during delivery. Elastomer plating can be undertaken both in the cylinder and in the dial tube.

Conversion kit makes it an HPI machine, making 4.4 feeders out of 2.2.
The D4 2.2 II is a veritable quick-change artist. A conversion kit enables it to change from 2.2 to 4.4 feeders per inch, thereby converting the production of rib, spacer, fine gauge and many other 8-lock fabrics to plain interlock for filament and fibre yarns.
