Warp Knitting High Lift Truck WH15

With the warp knitting high lift truck WH 15, pre-assembled warp beams weighing up to 1500 kg are picked with belts or tube grippers from the assembling rack TM or TMD and are mounted into the knitting machines.

The high lift truck is manually moved to the knitting machine.
Warp beams positioned one above the other are inserted by means of attachable grippers instead of belts.
 With the articulated arm system, the warp beam can be swivelled from the transport position to the mounting position, even if space is restricted. Thus, a long reach above the knitting machines is covered.
The loads are moved sensitively by the mains-operated electrohydraulic system.
The warp beam can be precisely positioned by means of a side shift device.


  • Direct transport from the warehouse or the weaving preparation area to the knitting machine, without having to handle the warp beams in between
  • Articulated arm system for a broad range of action during the warp beam mounting operation
  • Operations can be optionally performed with belts or with gripper technology
  • Narrow transport position
  • For larger distances, an EGS can be used for towing
