Karl Mayer unveils dress from HKS 4-M EL-made fabric

Karl Mayer, a leading provider of machines for warp knitting, technical textiles, and warp preparation for weaving, has launched a summer dress made from a fabric produced on the HKS 4-M EL, a four-bar tricot, flexible high-speed machine for producing stretch and non-stretch fabrics, that can be comfortably worn casually over jeans on hot summer days.

The light and airy warp-knitted textile provides breathability and feels as soft as gossamer against the skin. The knitted fabric weighs just 128 grams/ square metres. It combines an open ground with an attractive, multicoloured pattern and is made from 100 per cent textured polyester – an undyed version in the ground and navy blue, olive green, and lilac yarns in the pattern areas.

The fabric was produced on the HKS 4-M EL tricot machine. Equipped with the EL system, the high-speed tricot machine produces a ground with a regular mesh construction. It can also produce patterns with section-wise adjustable opening sizes to create different looks and air-permeability levels.

The EL system also enables coloured pattern yarns to be worked into a sweeping, geometric, wave pattern. The length of the repeats is virtually unlimited and the width is restricted by a shog path of two inches. Another advantage of the EL system is that the pattern can be changed quickly. The exceptional patterning flexibility, combined with a high operating speed, make the HKS 4-M EL the machine of choice for producing short runs and developing new products.

The high-speed tricot machine reveals all its design potential especially when used in conjunction with suitable patterning software, for example the ProCad warpknit, and the DS OPTO EC warping machine for warp knitting, which combines direct and sectional warping to enable patterned sectional warp beams to be produced extremely efficiently.
