According to Karl Mayer, the impetus for new and fine embroidery grounds is not only coming from fabric producers, but also Karl Mayer, a company which manufactures knitting machines.

“Since the end of 2013, textile developers at the company have been designing delicate fabrics that will enable its customers to break new ground,” a press release revealed.

The new embroidery grounds are produced in a gauge of E 32 instead of the normal E 28, and an HKS 3-M machine is used to produce them.

“This high-speed warp knitting machine with three guide bars can reach speeds of 2,000 to 2,500 per minute and so, offers a much greater level of productivity than raschel machines,” the company said.

“A working width of 210" enables manufacturers to achieve an even greater level of productivity,” the German textile machinery maker explained.

The development work carried out at Karl Mayer has resulted in the development of embroidery grounds whose completely new, open tulle constructions are particularly striking, due to a feature of lapping.

“The key element of this clever patterning technology is the close linking of adjacent pillar stitch wale's by two counter-notation weft links,” the company observed.

This firm coupling makes the paired yarn pieces look identical and solves one of the patterning limitations of high-speed tricot machines when producing tulle.

With the two-in-one, pillar-stitch wale construction, stretch honeycomb patterns can be worked, as can patterns having asymmetrical waffle constructions, holes of different size and intermittent connecting pieces.

The new and varied tulle constructions developed by Karl Mayer were then embroidered and a ground made from polyamide monofilaments of 20 den was used to create attractive decorative patterns.

“The stable yarn enables delicate textiles to be embroidered without any problems, despite their filigree construction, and even dense motifs can be embroidered,” it noted.

As per the company, this was confirmed by Karl Mayer's partners, Surbhi Industries Limited and Bischoff Textil GmbH, who were responsible for embroidering the tulle. (AR)
