The world's largest range of sinkers by Kern-Liebers, providing the basis for parts in the large circular knitting sector. Always the right sinker – whether for single jersey, plush or fleece, no matter what the application.
For abrasive yarns such as Polyester semidull or Spandex, partial hardening in the jack area of the "Polyester Sinker" provides the ideal solution for long run times and extended replacement intervals.
Delicate yarns such as multifilament yarns require perfect rounding in the jack area to protect against capillary breaks. These are all properties that only "G-Sinker" provides.
Its sinker range is rounded off with a wide variety of fleece and plush sinkers (lowest handle heights down to H 1.0 make the greatest demands on production). A large range of selectors (also available as complete sets) and miscellaneous important parts for Jaquard machines also meet the highest standards with regard to manufacturing technology.
Many machine parts are now also available for a large number of Autostriper machines. Working closely together without the machine engineering companies, Kern-Liebers is continuously developing new products, with OEM quality always in the foreground. A constantly growing line of needles for single jersey double-jersey and rib completes Kern-Liebers' comprehensive range of parts.
