An EC300-S collarette cutter for the high-speed production of tubular apparel components as well as an FA350 automatic roll slitter have been installed by Svegea of Sweden AB, Uddevalla/Sweden, at the plant of Löffler.
Sports and knitwear specialist Löffler GmbH, Ried im Innkreis/Austria, is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2023. The plant houses 25 circular knitting machines and 3 seamless knitting machines with an annual output of around 905,000 m² of fabric. The company is known for its transtex under garments, which ushered in the 2-layer principle of structures combining hydrophobic polypropylene (PP) and fibers such as cotton or merino wool, among others. The PP does not absorb moisture and instead wicks it to the outside, where it can evaporate to keep the skin dry.
Svegea’s EC 300-S collarette cutter is equipped with the computer-controlled True-Drive II and high pre-feed device and is used for the production of tubular apparel components such as cuff and neck tapes and other seam reinforcements. It operates at speeds of up to 20,000 m/hour. The integrated, fully automatic FA350 roll slitter FA500 roll slitter is equipped with 3 separately adjustable settings enabling 3 different band widths to be cut within the same cutting cycle. Automatic tube sewing units are provided for sewn tubes in optional rolled or flat folded forms, depending on customer preference.
