Title (EN) KNITTING MACHINE
(FR) MACHINE A TRICOTER
Abstract:
(EN) A knitting machine comprising a needle bed (60) with a plurality of latch needles (63) in latch needle slots (62) and a plurality of piezoelectric micromotors (70, 72, 74) at least equal to the number of said latch needles. Each micromotor is coupled to one of the latch needles (63) such that activation of the motor coupled to a latch needle causes linear movement of the latch needle in its latch needle slot.
(FR) Cette invention concerne une machine à tricoter comprenant une fonture (60), laquelle fonture comprend plusieurs aiguilles à crochet (63) qui sont disposées dans des fentes (62) pour aiguilles à crochet, ainsi que plusieurs micromoteurs piézo-électriques (70, 72, 74) dont le nombre est au moins égal à celui desdites aiguilles à crochet. Chaque micromoteur est couplé à l'une des aiguilles à crochet (63) de manière à ce que l'activation d'un moteur couplé à l'une de ces aiguilles entraîne le déplacement linéaire de cette dernière dans sa fente.
