Different types of garments that we can knit on flat knitting machines range from edgings, trimmings and collars to garment panels and integrally knitted garments. We can efficiently manufacture products like jumpers, pullovers, cardigans, dresses, suits, trouser suits, hats, scarves as well as many other accessories on these straight-bar machines. However, for producing three-dimensional and fashioned products for technical applications, we require multi-axial flat knitting machines which are under development.
