Karl Mayer, Germany’s leading textile machine developer, has launched the new high-speed jacquard raschel machine, Rascheltronic, to produce stable upholstery fabrics. The textile companies are using the Rascheltronic machine to produce stretch and non-stretch textiles with functional zones, especially making it a hit among manufacturers of home textiles.

The model used is designated the RSJC 5/1 EL. The fabrics feature an attractive, graphic design with open-work constructions, and are extremely heavy for Rascheltronic fabrics. The final fabrics weigh between 330 and 400 g/m², depending on the arrangement of the weft lapping. In some designs, the weft runs along the holes, which therefore remain open, and does not join any stitch wales. In other patterns, the ground bars with the weft add to the openings, which affects the appearance and characteristics of the textile. The warp-knitted textiles, with the partially filled-in openings, are denser and more stable in every direction. All the fabrics also have the appropriate abrasion resistance values for use as upholstery fabrics. The results of abrasion tests carried out by textile developers at Karl Mayer lie within the average range of the specific requirements of most manufacturers.

The performance of these durable warp-knitted fabrics has also attracted the attention of shoe fabric producers.

Further reasons for the success of the Rascheltronic include its high level of flexibility, since the EL feature enables different patterns to be worked easily one after the other at an exceptional production rate. At a maximum speed of 1,000 min-1, this new high-speed jacquard raschel machine can produce an average of 48 metres of this new upholstery fabric per hour. The machine gauge is E 18 and the working width is 130”. Textured, tanglelaced polyester is used as the yarn. (GK)
