Barcelona – Visitors to the recent ITMA exhibition could be forgiven for being somewhat surprised with the reappearance of the historic Jumberca brand of circular knitting machines.

Located in hall 8, the Canmartex company offered two models including a striper machine under the Jumberca brand and a brand new, small diameter circular knitting machine for technical textiles capable of producing a high spacer fabric measuring up to 12mm, which is being marketed under the Canmartex logo.

At ITMA the company was promoting the E2DT4S42, a fully electronic machine in a 34 ins diameter with 42 feeders with gauges ranging from 5 to 18G

Going forward, we will operate the large diameter single and double jersey machine under the Jumberca brand,” explained Canmartex’s Enric Marti at the show. “However, the technical fabric series will be operated under the Canmartex brand so as to provide some differentiation for our customers.”
