The circular socks machine is characterized by bidirectional weaving of a bag-shaped heel and a toe. The method of knitting socks is the same as that of the sock head, which is completed by the needle picker and the needle picker. When the heel starts to knit, first stop the knitting needles on the socks surface. At this time, the needle cylinder becomes two-way rotation, and the left and right needle pickers alternately enter the work. When the needle loop meets the needle picker, the needle picker picks a needle to Above the middle triangle, make it withdraw from the work, this is the needle-retraction process. After receiving a certain number of stitches, the needle entry device enters the work, so that the knitting needles that have withdrawn from the work gradually participate in the knitting again. This is the needle release process. Each time when the needle is put down, the needle picker pulls two needles each time, and the needle picker still picks up one needle, so that the number of knitting needles participating in the work gradually increases. After the needle is dropped, the heel is formed. Sock heads can also be knitted by the above methods, but the closure of the sock head can be stitched in a special process in the future, it can also be directly stitched on the socks machine, and other methods such as kink and hot melt can be used to complete.
When knitting some long and medium socks, hosiery hooks are placed in the disc groove above the needle cylinder. The hosiery hooks move in and out in a radial direction. The front hooks hook the initial loop, and then retract. The loops are hidden. When the single-layer sock is knitted to a sufficient length and folded into the required double layer, the sock hook is moved forward, and the initial coil is transferred to the tongue needle to fold the double-layer sock. The movement of the knitting needles during lifting and folding is completed by another triangle system.
