Types or Classification of Weft Knitting Machines: Weft knitting machines can be classified in the following ways: On the basis of the number of needle beds; On the basis of diameter; On the basis of the nature of driving system; On the basis of knitted structure; On the basis of design elements; On the basis of special products.
Knitting is done using long stick like nee-dles. The first knitting machine was invented in 1589, by Reverend William Lee. It slowly developed and today the market is filled with complex knitting machine to produce a huge range of knitted fabric. Classification of Knitting.

Textile - Textile - Weft knitting: The type of stitch used in weft knitting affects both the appearance and properties of the knitted fabric. The basic stitches are plain, or jersey; rib; and purl. In the plain stitch, each loop is drawn through others to the same side of the fabric. In the rib stitch, loops of the same course are drawn to both sides of the fabric.There are two types of knitting: weft knitting and warp knitting. In the more common weft knitting, the wales are perpendicular to the course of the yarn. In weft knitting, yarn is knitted horizontally and in a circular form. Most of the knitted fabric is produced by weft knitting.Knitting machines are use to produce knit fabric. Knitted fabrics are produced by the interlocking of one or more yarns through a series of loops by the use of hooked needle. Knitted fabrics are differing from one to another depending on their fabric design. Specific fabrics are produced from specific knitting machine. Knitting machines are classified as follows.

Textile - Textile - Warp knitting: The two types of warp knitting are raschel, made with latch needles, and tricot, using bearded needles. Coarser yarns are generally used for raschel knitting, and there has recently been interest in knitting staple yarns on these machines. In the Raschel machine, the needles move in a ground steel plate, called the trick plate.Read More
