Tailor-made for the sock sector
Tuesday, 30 September 2014

Brescia - As the demands of the sock and hosiery markets continue to evolve, Italian sock knitting machine builder Busi Giovanni has made considerable advances in developing new technology and upgrading its existing models.

Busi Giovanni began its exploration of single cylinder sock knitting machine with rib needle in the dial in 1967 and from that point, has become renowned throughout the industry as a company clearly devoted to true rib machines. This reputation is exemplified by the development of the latest Busi Giovanni medical machine, which is designed for the production of certified compression knee-high socks.

?This high production, single-cylinder sock-machine with latch needles in the dial is capable of producing true rib and plain stitch medical compression socks in 5 colours with compression classes 1, 2, 3 and it is provided with full electronic control,? Busi?s Export Manager, Michele Castagna, told Knitting Trade Journal on a recent visit to the Bresica, Italy-based firm.
