A new generation of 3-layer high pile: lighter, thinner, and warmer

Single Knit Double Face Loop High Pile Shearing Circular Knitting Machine (KDPS/D-HP)

A Better 3-Layer High Pile

Winter sport enthusiasts — or anyone who lives in cold climates — have been undeniably grateful for the layer of soft and warm high pile fabric embedded within their winter clothing. However, garments made using high pile can sometimes be uncomfortably bulky to the point of restricting users’ movements, as each layer needs to be laminated in order to avoid pilling.

PAILUNG Circular Knitting Machine PL-KDPSD-HP

PL-KDPSD-HP is a state-of-the-art knitting technology that offers all the softness and warmth of previous fabrics, without the lamination — simultaneously knitting spacer, thermal high-pile and the outer performance layer into a single fabric. The result? Lighter weight and more insulating winter apparel that gives wearers full range of movement.

Why Choose PL-KDPSD-HP

3-layer structure in a single step

KDPSD-HP knits single jersey

PL-KDPSD-HP knits single jersey, spacer, and high-pile fabric into a single structure, creating a 3-in-1 fabric, a much less labor-intensive alternative than traditional processes that require at least one lamination step and 2 knitting procedures to knit a multi-function fabric. In doing so, PL-KDPSD-HP reduces multi-function fabric production time by 60%.

Thinner, lighter, warmer

Previously, insulating garments were created by laminating high-pile fabrics, a thick middle layer and a waterproof or wind-resistant outer layer for optimal performance. However, this production method tends to create garments that are uncomfortable bulky and restrict users’ range of motion. In contrast, PL-KDPSD-HP is equipped with a spacer middle layer for much better insulation — the spacer, with thickness ranging from 1-4 mm, both reduces the overall weight and also offers enhanced comfort and flexibility.

User-friendly interface

Computer-aided design (CAD) can be unnecessarily complicated to use and set up, sometimes requiring the help of a professional engineer. However, KDPS/D-HP uses an optimized user interface, allowing even untrained designers to easily connect the program to the machine and manipulate and design patterns.
