About the project: Size control device for socks

DSC TOUCH “Dinema Size Control”, is the new size control device for socks and underwear. It has been studied to solve the problems related to size uniqueness and measurements precision; addressed for knitting and finishing internal and external departments. Measuring is effected by means of the traction determined by the carriage moving down at a constant speed up until the set up pulling force is reached; everything is controlled by an electronic system. In the design process of this device I made technical and ergonomic improvements and I simplified both the frame and the carter. The result has been a great reduction of the overall machine’s weight. I designed also new handles for an improved device displacement, and a new display, with a very thin appearance and an orientation system that improve the readability.
