Title: Nozzle for knitting machine

Abstract: A nozzle for knitting machine comprises a fastening block comprising a U-shaped opening and an inlet hole; a seat under the fastening block adjacent the U-shaped opening, the seat comprising an opening in communication with the U-shaped opening; a trigger member pivotably disposed on both sides of the fastening block, the trigger member comprising a raised member in the opening of the seat; and a sliding block removably received in the U-shaped opening, the sliding block comprising a riser facing the seat, an inlet channel through the sliding block, a block member on the top of the inlet channel, a V-shaped groove on the block member, an aperture extended downwardly from the V-shaped groove being in communication with the inlet channel and the inlet hole. In blowing operation, yarn is placed on the V-shaped groove. Then move the sliding block toward the seat with the riser of the sliding block inserted into the opening of the seat. Next pivot the trigger member to cause the raised member of the trigger member to be disposed vertically. Thus, the sliding block is confined in a U-shaped opening. Hence, external high pressure air is directed to blow onto yarn. The yarn blowing or cleaning operation is made convenient. Further, the components are simplified. Thus, assembly is simple and manufacturing cost is reduced.
