Since the birth of the world's first warp knitting machine in 1775, the warp knitting machine has developed over the past 200 years, from the early mechanical traverse mechanism to the later electronic traverse mechanism. With the improvement of science and technology, the traverse mechanism has made great progress in many aspects such as traverse distance, performance and automation.
(1) In the history of warp knitting machines, mechanical traverse mechanisms occupy a dominant position for a long time, but with the electromechanical integration of needle textile equipment, precision machinery and advanced microelectronic technology are organically combined, electronic combing The traverse mechanism has developed rapidly.
(2) The electronic bar traverse mechanism has the advantages of convenient turning pattern, large traverse distance, wide design space and high production efficiency. In addition, because it is based on electronic computer control, it is of great significance for the warp knitting machine to realize the mechatronics of the whole machine.
(3) High-speed has become a big trend in the development of modern warp knitting machines. The warp knitting machine using the cam traverse mechanism has a top speed of 3,500 rpm and the Raschel warp knitting machine has a speed of 2,500 rpm. However, the current maximum speed of the electronic bar traverse mechanism is only 2000 rpm. Therefore, the electronic bar traverse mechanism cannot completely replace the mechanical bar traverse mechanism, at least for a long period of time in the future. It will also exist on low-bar and high-speed warp knitting machines.
With the improvement of control technology, the development of new motors and new hydraulic transmission technologies is on the rise, and it is believed that the performance of the electronic bar traverse mechanism will also increase. In the future, the electronic bar traverse mechanism replaces the mechanical bar traverse mechanism is a big trend, and is the future development direction of warp knitting technology.
