Lonati S.p.A, a leading world manufacturer of sock-knitting machines with an annual output of over 8,000 machines, has designed a fully revised range for 2008. The classic G 5JA men's sock knitting machine with a flipping dial, which has been marketed all over the world, with one hundred units ready for installation in North-American factories, is now flanked by the newly-designed FH with external automatic toe linking, which can be mounted on all existing models. This version has greatly simplified sock pick-up and seaming operations, giving clear advantages in terms of production and cost saving. Different versions will be available in summer, and 1000 machines will be produced in the first year. All standard models have been upgraded - 5 and 6 colour single-feed, double feed, filet and 3D. 4-feed sports sock knitting machines - the widest range of knitting machines currently available on the market. read more
Lonati in the world
In 1956 the company launched a machine for producing women's stockings which supplied the yarn through two feeds. A few years later, Lonati perfected a double cylinder machine for producing men's socks. In 1969 the market demanded continuous expansion of industrial plants.
