YOU NEED IT - WE PROVIDE IT

We supply a vast range of spares and accessories for the warping and warp knitting industries; including current machines and machines long out of production. If Raschel or Tricot chains are required, we can either build from new links or rebuild old chains; customers provide old chains for us to breakdown and regrind. This rebuild service is a very popular facility. We can also offer used or reconditioned links. We also offer chains on a buy back scheme, please ask for details.

TRICOT & RASCHEL KNITTING MACHINES

We supply three different categories of machines:

'Used' - these machines are sold in the condition they are bought in.

'Reconditioned' - a constant supply of machines available, which can be matched to specific requirements for budget and production. Machines are in operating condition and have been thoroughly cleaned, inspected, repainted and electronically tested.

'Re-engineered' - this equipment can be upgraded to customer's specification. Machines attain original operating capabilities and are subject to major refurbishment, which includes thorough cleaning, re-painting, testing and replacement of all knitting elements.

Our pricing policy at Craft Engineering (International) Ltd is highly competitive whilst at the same time being fair and honest. Excellent service and lead times coupled with sound machinery and technical advice can increase your productivity.
