Karl Mayer debuts HKS 4-M EL for flexible patterns

The HKS 4-M EL from Karl Mayer is a new, innovative machine for efficiently processing even small runs and for producing patterns flexibly.

“It was presented to the public for the first time at ITMA 2015 in Milan in a gauge of E 28,” a press release from Karl Mayer said.

Interconnected, adjacent arrangement of the waves and the pronounced 3D effects are produced by the clever patterning technology and a specific drawing-in arrangement on the HKS 4-M EL.

The EL facility is needed to work the long shog movements of the ground guide bars of over 1" and the pattern repeat length of 474 courses.

“Whereas the fully threaded ground guide bar, GB 2, works a plain lapping for the ground, GB 3 and GB 4 process elastane in a block-wise arrangement from a beam,” the company added.

According to Karl Mayer, the yarns are laid from the two ground guide bars in wavy lines running against each other, basically in a tricot lapping, which is shogged step-wise by means of pilgrim steps.

The elastane is used double at the intersecting points between the waves, which produces zones with a high stretch having a three-dimensional look.

Showcasing a creation made on this machine, Karl Mayer further said that this attractive high and low design was developed by Karl Mayer using the Texion ProCad warpknit software.

It was produced by one of Karl Mayer's customer, who processed elastane having a count of dtex 78 and polyamide 6.6 of dtex 44 f 34 on an HKS 4-M EL in a gauge of E32.

“The stretch warp-knitted fabric has an oval, Gothic design, and the scalloped shapes have a distinct, three-dimensional appearance,” the company stated. (AR)
