Hose Knitting Machine - Continuous Process

Penguin Hose Knitting machine is used for knit-reinforced hoses used extensively in automobiles as radiator hoses and for similar low pressure applications.
This machine is characterized by high productivity, simplicity and excellent performance.
The knitting is done over the inner lining. The machine can be used with both cotton or rayon yarn. The knitting process is closely controlled to ensure a perfect knit structure that is built over the hose at suitable tensions. Thus high performance can be achieved from the end product. The machine is provided with ergonomically located controls and workspace. The centerline of the machine can be adjusted so that hoses of different diameter can be made to rest on the roller stands conveniently.
The machine operates with belt drive, with infinitely variable electric motor, which ensures quite running. The knitted layer provides excellent internal reinforcement and provides superior adhesion of the two rubber layers. Penguin hose knitting machine is highly recommended for automotive, rubber and ancillary industries.
