Split technology
Width working field on the needle
DSCD with 3-way technical working traks
Rotating front needle bed

Sinker system with independent selection


PV Basic included

PK3P is the last borne in the already ample range of PROTTI's models and it is characterised for its high versatility. The new technical characteristics make it the SOLE machine on the world market to set out simultaneously the necessary devices to produce jacquard, cut, structured, shaped and intarsia garments. The outcome of these choices will maximise either the quality and the productivity, in respect to the products of the competition which tend to favour some type of production to the detriment of others. To the winning characteristics of the previous series, recognised and appreciated by our customers worldwide, like DSCD with its 3 technical ways, the Split Technology, the needles' fields length, the independent programming Sinker system, the inversion on the needle, PK3P adds in the new user interface, the direct yarn feeding and the independent moving of the carriage yarn carriers.
It is remarked also the machine possibility to be linked to an Ethernet network and the possibility to connect a video camera to see internal areas of the machine, the latter device is optional.
As far as the machine programming is concerned, the PV Basic software is supplied. However considering the high versatility of the possible productions it is strongly recommended also the purchase of the automatic IKS software.

Color LCD user interface

It is composed by a colour screen panel (LCD TFT 12.1). Its scope
is to make simple the machine approach by the user. The
advantages are many, like:
.Ergonomics (variable orientation positioning), easy to read
(colour graphics and the big characters make the data reading
easy even from a distance)
.User friendly (variable menus management and immediate
commands through keys set on the screen side).


Direct yarn feeding

This was achieved by eliminating the carriages connecting bridge with
consequent reduction of its weight and related inertia. This solution
other than the mentioned mechanical advantages, allows the yarn
entry in a natural way, enhancing the knitting quality, eliminating
passages and related friction, reducing the yarn breaking and
consequently increasing the carriage speed, shortening the put-inproduction


Yarn carriers indipendent from the carriage

This allows considerable advantages like:
.Eliminating all the idling runs for the yarn carrier positioning,
which is done automatically.
.Reducing the exit, entry and yarn carriers stapling times.
.Controlling the yarn feeders position which will no more be left in
a dangerous position.
.Optimising the selvedges' working avoiding the yarn jumps.
.Possibility to modify dynamically the phase displacement between
the system and the yarn-feeder (the traditional opening of the
yarn-feeder box).
.Execution of intarsia works up to 24 yarn-feeders with positioning
of the same ones on the needle and electronically controlled by motors, that eliminates the expensive balancing and mechanically braked yarn-feeders. It allows a high quality knitting up to 18 gauge. Furthermore this system reduces by over 50% the production time in the intarsia works as compared to a machine
with balancing yarn-feeders moved by the carriage.
.Identification of yarn-feeders as plating feeders, weft, intarsia or
normal by simply specifying in the knitting program.
