Lingerie made from the Raschel machine ML 35 C
Aug '08
Manufacturers like lingerie with fewer seams, since it takes less time and effort to produce, and women like it because it is more comfortable to wear.

The garments, which are produced almost as a single piece, provide optimum body support, without chafing or pinching. They guarantee total freedom of movement and do not show underneath the garment worn on top.

However, this "secret support" is also extremely attractive and seductive – as the matching set shown here illustrates.

The lingerie was produced at KARL MAYER on the ML 35 C multibar raschel machine and "Kettenwirk-Praxis" has been closely following the entire development process.

This technical journal described the production of the first panel fabrics /1/, presented some interesting results /2 + 3/, and reported on the production of the final pair of briefs /4/.

The entire set is now ready to be unveiled. The bra and briefs feature an abstract flower design and a graphic, checked pattern.

The design is simple and linear and draws the gaze to what is important – the woman herself. The fabric already carries the design pattern for the subsequent processing stages.

The ML 35 C produces a panel fabric which incorporates all the contours of the final pieces, i.e. the body, leg and neckline edges, and is marked with the few making-up sections that are required.

The multibar raschel machine can also work areas having different levels of elasticity, which ensures that the lingerie perfectly matches the shape of the body in terms of fit and support.

The machine's technical features, which make all this possible, include the use of multiple yarn guides, shog paths of the string bars of up to 170 needles, electronically controlled yarn let-off drives, electronic fabric take-down and the KAMCOS package of special features.

With speeds of up to 600 min-1, the ML 35 C is one of the fastest machines available for producing patterned stretch and non-stretch lace.
