COMEZ is a global leader in advanced
narrow fabric technology, offering a complete range of crochet knitting
machines, weaving needle looms, double needle bed warp knitting machines and
software for pattern programming - used to produce a broad range of laces
and bands for underwear, ribbons for clothing, technical textiles,
passementerie, fancy yarns and fabrics for outerwear.
COMEZ machines are built using the most
modern and innovative technologies, featuring:
> Speed and productivity at maximum levels
> Reduced machine start-up times with article changes
> Near-unlimited range of usable yarn types without difficulty
> Versatility, flexibility and ease-of-use.
Thanks to COMEZ technology, narrow
fabric manufacturers can create an unlimited range of product types, all of
extremely high quality, relying on continuous production (overcoming changes
in fashion tastes and market trends), enabling them to enter and be
competitive in new market segments
From the extensive line of crochet
machines, that well highlight the excellence of COMEZ technology, at the
ITMA ASIA + CITME 2008 trade fair 3 models will be presented, featuring the
application of newly engineered solutions aimed at maximizing production
efficiency and flexibility.
COMEZTRONIC CT-16B/600 is an electronic
crochet knitting machine with 16 weft pattern bars, available in gauge 15
and 20 npi, with a 600 mm working width, designed for the production of an
extensive range of high-quality and very complex laces, bra-straps and
flounces, both elastic and non-elastic.
The electronic drive is applied not only
to the weft bars, but to all the feeders (weft, warp, elastic yarns) and the
finished product take-down, thus allowing for the possibility of different
stitch density values (stitches/cm) on a single product, as well as
different values for weft/warp feeding and elasticity. Continued testing and
research have resulted in the elimination of problematic vibrations of the
bars, which now perform only a transversal, and no longer a vertical
movement. These engineering and design changes make it possible to work
easily with as many as 16 weft bars. A high number of bars and electronic
operating system allow for elaborate patterns to be created, with very long
The machine is fitted with the new generation DATA CONTROL
CONTROLLER, managing all necessary machine functions, monitoring production
data, and allowing for the realisation of lengthy pattern repeats: the
number of lines for each pattern can reach a value that is just about
unlimited. Patterns are programmed simply and quickly by COMEZ exclusive
software, and transferred from a PC to the DATA CONTROL CONTROLLER using a
MEMORY CARD. Electronics applied to this COMEZ machine are exclusively
created and entirely designed and developed by COMEZ.
CT-16B/600 is a truly unique production system made available to
manufacturers of sophisticated articles for underwear: its advanced
engineering and design technology - as for various other COMEZ machine
models - is protected by numerous patents granted in many countries
worldwide, including China.
The COMEZ 609/B12 is a high efficiency crochet
knitting machine, designed for the production of a wide range of laces,
bands and ribbons featuring complex and elaborate patterns, employed for
lingerie and undergarments, sportswear and accessories. The machine is built
and designed using a modular system that allows for the easy application of
a great many devices offered exclusively by COMEZ, completing the basic
machine and providing very high versatility.
The COMEZ 609/B12 comes in
several gauges, with a 600 mm working width, and is equipped with 11 weft
bars, controlled by a chain composed of involute profiled links. This is a
highly reliable machine, featuring an extremely advanced mechanical
structure: it is the ultimate expression of COMEZ consolidated technology
for the production of narrow fabrics in large quantities, performing at
maximum operating speeds while requiring machine maintenance that is reduced
to a bare minimum.
The COMEZ 610 ACO/V is a high technology crochet knitting
machine using compound needles, for the high speed production of technical
articles, ribbons and laces, featuring lock-stitch, both rigid and elastic,
such as - for example - the female part of Velcro fasteners.
compound needles render it highly versatile, allowing for the processing in
the warp of synthetic and special yarns (such as Kevlar, fibreglass, copper
and zinc yarns, etc), as well as commonly used natural yarns like wool and
COMEZ 610 ACO/V comes in gauges from 10 to 20 npi, has a 600 mm
working width, and is fitted with 8 weft bars controlled by a chain,
composed of links presenting an involute profile. A supplementary warp tube
bar allows for a variety of warp knit constructions (closed, simple and
double lock-stitch, etc.), differing from those normally obtained and
providing a lock-stitch effect on the fabric. The many products that can be
obtained using this machine are therefore new and interesting articles,
intended for a wider variety of uses.
