Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0916759A2] A controlling method and apparatus for a flat knitting machine positions, prior to starting of knitting, a knitting member (12, 16) with respect to a position setting member (54, 60, 62, 80, 82) arranged on a moving path of the knitting member (12, 16), determines, in this condition, a reference position of a knitting member moving motor (14, 20) based on an operation position of the motor (14, 20), performs, during not knitting after starting of knitting, the positioning again and detects an actual moving amount of the motor (14, 20) from the reference position (msg), and determines a later variation of the position of the knitting member (12, 16) corresponding to the momentum from the reference position (msg) on a result of the detection of the moving amount. This prevents deterioration in quality of a knit fabric arising from accumulation of fly waste, inappropriate operation of the knitting member, displacement in detected position and so forth. <IMAGE>
