During fabric processing, it is often necessary to change the reel. Thanks to the suction blower use, the thread ends are automatically tensioned cut when the thread is finished and moved back in front of the blowers to be kept tensioned during the yarn change.
Vacuumed cutting tables are used to facilitate the positioning of heavy fabric rolls to be processed. The cutting table is featured by a perforated surface where the blower creates a cushion of air vacuum that leads the roll in position and holds the fabric in position allowing the machining.
During knitting, the blower blows compressed air that is used to keep in position the already knitted part of the sock so that the needle can work freely. When the processing is finished, all the stockings are sucked to be moved to another container for subsequent processing.
Yarns are usually wound on a spool that bends them in a curved shape. Since it is necessary to stretch them during the processing, often a blower is used, that thanks to the steam injected, softens the fibre structure so as to distend them.
Fabrics must be washed and rinsed in clean water after the dyeing process. To remove the water gently, the fabrics are passed on a suction blade featured by an adjustable slit that sucks air removing most of the water soaked. The use of air knives for drying and draining allows energy savings and also significantly speeds up the processing times.
