The Lawson Hemphill FAK-Sampler, FAK-S is recognized as the worldwide standard for lab knitting machines. It is a high-speed, precision knitting machine designed to check uniformity and consistency of the yarn quickly and accurately. It is ideal for use in production control and R&D labs as well as dyeing plants.
In any knitting application, the yarn tension and the yarn feed controls are critical to ensure fabric uniformity. Any changes in these variables during knitting will cause irregularities, creating a defective fabric. The FAK-S has a built-in Stitch Control System, which ensures the preparation of the standard samples of knit fabric for yarn quality control purposes. The machine also features a take-up assembly to collect the fabric under controlled tension to further ensure fabric uniformity.
The FAK-S can knit all types of yarns, including synthetic and natural fibers as well as monofilament, filament, elastomeric and spun yarns. Nine different cylinder sizes are available to knit yarns from 10d up to 2000d. All knitting cylinders are interchangeable and can be used with all Lawson Hemphill knitters. (Please consult Lawson Hemphill for knitting higher or lower denier yarns).
