Abstract (en)

[origin: EP3187633A1] Provided are a knitted-fabric seaming method for a circular knitting machine for making a linking portion dense as with other loops, and a circular knitting machine system. Transferring needles (34) are advanced in an axial direction of knitting needles (21), such that the transferring needles (34) and the knitting needle (21) are continuous with each other in the axial direction. A tip-end protrusions (34e) of each of the transferring needles (34) is shifted inward. Transferring sinkers (49) are moved from the knitting needles (21) to the transferring needles (34) in the axial direction of the knitting needles (21). Tip-end protrusions (34e) of the transferring needles (34) are inserted into inner loops (26a) of a knitted fabric (27), which are located inside final loops (26) caught on the knitting needles (21), such that the knitted fabric (27) is transferred from the knitting needles (21) to the transferring needles (34). The inner loops (26a) transferred to the transferring needles (34) are linked. The size of each of the loops to be linked becomes smaller in comparison with the case where the final loops are transferred to the transferring needles to perform the linking. Thus, it is possible to make a linking portion dense as with other loops, so as to increase durability and the quality of the outer appearance.
