Process Flow Chart of Knitting Technology

What do you mean by knitting?

Knitting is a process of fabric manufacturing by interlacing or interlooping the loops of yarns. Basically, loops form in the horizontal or vertical directions when one loop is drawn through another. Moreover, the knit fabric is produced by making a loop using a needle in a knitting machine. Different types of cam designs, such as knit cams, tuck cams, and miss cams, are used in a knitting machine to produce knit fabric. Knit fabric manufacturing is a continuous process for making various types of plain and designed fabrics

Fabric manufacturing methods are divided into three types: weaving, knitting, and non-weaving. Additionally, yarns are the primary materials used to produce different types of fabric. Similarly, knitted fabrics are one of them. Knitting technology is one of the interlooping methods for producing knitted fabrics.

Knitting is one of the textile fabric manufacturing processes in the knitting mill. When different types of knitting machines are used to produce knit fabric,. The manufacturers of the knitting machines added various features to the machine to make it easy to operate. Anyhow, I have illustrated the knitted fabric manufacturing process with a process flow chart.

Knitting Process In Textile Industry

The following is the process flow chart for the knitting process.

Above all, knit fabric manufacturing is a step-by-step process.

  • Firstly, yarn collects in cone form from spinning,
  • Secondly, the yarn cone feeds into the creel.
  • Thirdly, the yarn feeds into the feeder via trip tape positive arrangement and a tension device to adjust fabric gsm and others.
  • After that, knit fabric forms through knitting action.
  • After the knitting process, the grey knit fabrics withdraw from the fabric roller and are weighted to be sent in the inspection section.
  • Then, the numbering of the fabric is done, and the grey knit fabrics are dispatched to the next processing section.
  • Additionally, some processes are added for knit fabric manufacturing, such as seeding, brushing, and washing, but it depends on buyer requirements and the manufacturing process.

Features of Knit Fabric

Knit fabrics have different features. The following are the common features of knit fabrics:

  • Firstly, knit fabrics are comfortable to wear.
  • Secondly, it has good texture properties.
  • Thirdly, it makes fabrics less wrinkled than woven fabrics.
  • After that, it has a bulky effect.
  • Then, knit fabrics have good elasticity properties.
  • It is also easy to sew and wear.
  • In fact, it has a lower waste rate than woven fabric.
  • Finally, this fabric type has good porosity to air & water.

In sum, different designs of knitted fabrics are produced by the above techniques. The knit fabric has worldwide popularity for its features. As a matter of fact, different knitted fabric manufacturing companies marketed various luxury, comfortable, and good-looking loungewear for consumers.

So, that’s all about knit fabric manufacturing with a knitting machine in the textile mill.
