A high speed version of the machine includes to the synchronized with the extruders, so as not to compromise the speed and production.

Hose Knitting is a recent concept in automobile radiator hose technology. Penguin Hose Knitting Machines are indigenously designed and Penguin are the only indigenous manufacturers of these machines in India and one among the very few manufacturers in the world.

This machine is characterised by high productivity, simplicity and excellent performance.

The hoses manufactured by this machine are far superior to conventionally wrapped hoses in strength, appearance and durability.

This machine is used for the manufacture of all types of bent hoses, curved hoses and hoses of various diameters used in automobiles.
