Right from the beginning of this emergency, we have made ourselves available to our customers in order to meet the needs of a rapidly changing market. We took advantage of our technical expertise in the narrow fabric sector to develop two new machines models for the production of elastic cords, essentials accessories for the protective masks. The supplied machineries satisfy the users’ requirements both in qualitative and quantitative terms in a period in which reliability and productivity have become key factors for the textile companies.

The solutions that we are glad to offer are 1700/20, multi-head circular knitting machine for high production of chainette cords, and DNB/600-2B, double needle bed warp knitting machine with high operation speed. Both these technologies allow the production of elastic ear loops for protective mask with high performance. Depending on the articles features, a single machine can produce in one day the necessary elastic cords to manufacture approx. 50.000 masks.
