Processing elastane on circular knitting machines requires a special Elastane feeding device.
The MER 2 provides a 100 % positive yarn infeed of elastane fibres on circular knitting machines. MER 2 units are available to ensure ease of operation on different circular knitting machines. One unit can serve up to four knitting systems.
The MER 2 continuously unwinds the cylindrical elastane bobbins onto 2 shafts, ensuring a controlled infeed. The unwound yarn quantity corresponds to the circumferential speed of the shafts.
