Leading Italian producer of electronic yarn feeders for knitting machinery LGL Electronics will be showcasing a range of advanced sustainable yarn feeding solutions at FEBRATEX in August. The show will take place in Blumenau-SC, Brazil from 12-15 August 2014 and LGL can be found in Sector 3, Booth 240.

LGL produces a complete and innovative range of electronic yarn feeders for knitting machines from circular seamless to socks, as well as for large diameter circular and flat knitting machines, many of which can be seen on the company’s booth in Brazil. 

Since 2011 LGL has been committed to the development and manufacturing of electronic yarn feeders, which help promote sustainable management of resources, and have been attributed a Green Label for high energy efficiency and low environmental impact. Included in LGL’s line-up in Shanghai will be its SPIN 1, COMPACT and brand new ECOPOWER yarn feeding solutions:


ECOPOWER is LGL’s latest development and was introduced at ITMA Asia + CITME for the first time. ECOPOWER has been designed to provide maximum motor torque even at low speed and average power consumption reduction of 30% is claimed.

  • Reduced weight
  • Considerable power reduction
  • ATTIVO electronic brake, which automatically keeps the programmed tension on the yarn: an LGL exclusive (optional)

Tension detectors and electronic brakes

The above feeders are equipped with tension detectors that enable programmable constant yarn tension. The range also incorporates a complete range of innovative electronic brakes to reduce significantly the stress on the yarn and to increase performance:

  • TWM  (LGL patent) - now available in a new  wear-resistant material   
  • ATTIVO (LGL patent) - enables programming to keep the desired tension constant

New systems for detection and control of yarn consumption

YCC (Yarn Consumption Control) - stops the machine if the yarn consumption doesn’t meet the values entered by the end-user

YCM (Yarn Consumption Meter) - enables to calculate the yarn consumption and consequently the final product cost
