Designed to cut and open tubular knit fabric including Lycra
The AIT/Konsan Cut & Roll machine designed to cut and open tubular knit fabric, inspect/measure and then roll it up into a perfect roll. To accomplish this, the operator uses a “joy stick” control to cut and follow the line precisely. Lycra is becoming a very common material in tubular knitted goods.
When the material is knitted, it is usually wrapped into a roll and stored in this condition. The fabric roll ends up with creases on both sides. These creases make following operations much harder and increase fabric waste. The Cut & Roll machine precisely cuts the tube lengthwise and opens it. While rolling up, the two edges pass over a special de-curling station just before the fabric roll station. Eliminating edge curls maximizes fabric usage.
