Stamping & Transformation

Highly efficient stamping and forming processes


For forming and bending in the production of knitting machine parts, we use a wide range of efficient stamping and bending processes. For example, we have insert presses with up to 15 tonnes of pressing force at our disposal for sample parts and small batches.

Wherever possible, progressive dies are used for forming and bending for high-volume parts for knitting systems, even during the stamping operation.

Examples of typical forming operations are:

  • Edge stamping
  • Numbering
  • Sheering
  • Rolling
  • Bending

For the manufacture of high-quality needle hooks for knitting systems, KERN-LIEBERS Textile makes use of efficient cold forming and massive forming processes.
