HKS 2-SE PLUS

Your best choice if you are moving in a commodity segment of elastic articles such as swimsuits, corsetry and fine lingerie.

With this High-performance tricot machine fabrics with Koeper stich can be produced in an efficient way.

HKS 2-SE PLUS

PRODUCE A HIGHER RANGE OF FABRIC QUALITIES AND FABRICS WITH HIGHER MODULUS. STRENGTHEN YOUR POSITION IN THE ELASTIC AREA WITH KOEPER STICH LAPPING.

The HKSE 2-SE PLUS is based on the machine concept of the HKS 2-SE. The machine has a modified knitting movement which enables the Koeper stich lapping in addition to the charmeuse and double tricot lapping. The two needle overlap is implemented by the GB 2 ground bar, which uses elastane. The result are articles with a higher modulus. Swimwear, sportswear and corsages with shape function are just as much part of the HKS 2-SE PLUS products as fine lingerie qualities. If you are moving in a commodity segment for elastic articles and you want to obtain the highest productivity with your factory, the HKS 2-SE PLUS is your best choice.

MACHINE CHARACTERISTICS

YOUR BENEFITS
 


  • Two-way-stretch goods with a good return
    A special lapping construction gives the fabric a very high elongation of up to 245%. It also has a good recovery.


  • Free cut goods with smooth edges
    Due to the special intermeshing of the elastane threads, the fabric impresses with its cut-resistant edges.


  • Soft touch
    The high mesh count in combination with the special lapping gives the fabric a soft and smooth surface with a flowing drape.

  •  


    Low running costs
    The replacement cycles for needle leads in knitting machines are about three times longer than those of circular knitting machines. The cost of a set is only about half. Accordingly, the running costs for knitting machines are greatly reduced.

  •  


    High productivity
    The HKS 2-SE PLUS is particularly characterized by its high efficiency. A high-performance warp knitting machine can produce 4x of fabric output.

Advantages of Koeper lapping

The difference between 1 needle overlap and Koeper lapping is that you have an overlap over 2 needles. That means that the amount of Elastane in the fabric with the same amount of yarn is much higher. Furthermore, the rebound force is higher with constant stretch.
