The company and models available
LONATI is a leader on international markets with annual production amounting to over 8000 machines. In 2008 the entire range was fully reviewed: alongside the classic G5JA men's sock-knitting machine with a flipping dial is the newly-designed FH machine, with automatic external toe linking, which can be applied to all models. This innovative change has simplified sock pick-up and seaming operations considerably, with clear advantages in terms of production and cost savings, and will soon be going into production with an initial forecast of 1000 machines in the first year. All standard models have also been upgraded, i.e. the 5 and 6 colour single-feed, double-feed, filet, 3D and 4-feed sports sock-knitting machines, representing the largest range currently available on the market.
Innovation and creativity
Lonati is committed to ongoing research and the development of innovative products, technologies, processes and materials to provide customers all over the world with the best textile machinery available, guaranteeing high quality production at competitive prices. The aim is to improve the potential synergies of electronic and textile machinery, to implement the most versatile solutions and produce infinite Italian fashion creations.
The principles that drove the entrepreneur Francesco Lonati, the founder of Lonati S.p.A., remain the same - simplicity, versatility and high performance, while saving on consumption and safeguarding people and the environment. With this approach, technology avoids arduous and detrimental processes, enabling maximum health and safety in the workplace, accessibility and easy maintenance, noise reduction, and continuous monitoring and improvements, where possible.
