Needle detectors are control, protection and machine stop motion devices on circular knitting machines. They ensure the detection of closed needle latcher, broken needles, and to lumps of fibres and lint that collect in the needle head area.
As soon as one of the above-mentioned faults is detected, the machine is immediately shut down. The needle detectors are suitable for all machines, even fine gauge.
Thanks to their compact construction, our needle detectors are ideal for application on multifeed circular knitting machines where space is at a premium. The needle detectors feature a robust design. They are vibration-proof, i.e. vibrations occurring on the machine will not impair the needle detector's function.
