VEGA 3.130

Technicity and Flexibility

The VEGA 3.130 is the solution for the knitting of technical and composite material developed by our in-house Stitch Lab specialists. the gap between the needlebeds is adjusted to the specific customer’s requirements for producing for example preformed and subsequently solidified parts. An innovative yarn path allows to knit standard fibres as well as semi-rigid yarns without damaging their quality. The well-known characteristics of Steiger as of the open carriage and the motorized yarn carriers are further optimized on the VEGA 3.130 for this application. The take-down is adapted for improves performance on 3D and complex knitting shapes. The optimized cam-box increases even more the productivity of highly complex products. The gear rack clamps asure the fixation as well as the clear cut of a great variety of fibres. the VEGA 3.130 is equipped with an interface S-Touch 2.0. User-friendly and easy to learn, it allows a remote control of selected functions and a remote troubleshooting of the machine
