The football World Cup is in full progress and everybody is observing the football players on the field. Their clothes and abilities are always under discussion. As manufacturer for circular knitting machines Terrot has a great interest in sportswear and football clothing.


The global knitwear market has strategically developed over the past years. The demand of athletic and sportswear is growing year by year and shows great potential. Until 2020 the share of knitwear fabrics is expected to grow further. The sportswear sector will drive the future growth. New technologies like the transfer technology by Terrot are important to support the positive drive.


The traditional manufacturer from Germany is known for its modern and innovative technologies, which have been meeting the constantly changing market and costumer requirements for 155 years. One of the latest innovations is Terrot’s UCC 572-T which features the production of fine gauge transfer fabrics up to E24. The model is perfect for production of modern and innovative sportswear textiles and can knit combinations of single and double jersey structures in the upper gauge range as well as hole structures. This transfer technology is so precise that it is possible to influence the clothing characteristics during the knitting process – single knit areas boost breathability and double knits are essential for more coverage and adding texture to the final fabric. Experts call this technology “Body Mapping”, which is particularly of importance for creating comfortable sports apparel of perfect fit and functionality.


Around the world the UCC 572-T und its fine gauge technology enjoys a high level of trust. Leading sportswear brands, e.g. Nike are convinced of this technology already: Nike goes ahead and supplied different National Teams, like Brasilia, Portugal or England for the football World Cup. Their Nike Vapor Kits are specially crafted by applying this knitting technique, called “Nike AeroSwift Technology”. Compared to standard transfer machines up to E18, Nike emphasizes the new technology is lighter, more sweat absorbent and approximately half the weight of traditional fabrics for sportswear.


The UCC 572-T is Terrot’s flagship in the production of sportswear and has an excellent reputation on the market. The model convinces from start to finish with its sophisticated transfer technology and before the end of the football World Cup it will be proven: Terrot and the UCC 572-T are already the world champions in fine gauge transfer fabrics up to E24. With regard to the football World Cup Terrot and its jerseys will be World Champions on the field, because both teams – France and Croatia – wear shirts based on Terrot’s fine gauge transfer technology.
