Karl Mayer, German developer of perfect solutions for warp knitting, technical textiles, and warp preparation for weaving, has announced the launch of its latest edition of the Lace.Express range, the OJ 83/1 B. The new range of lace raschel machine has a great level of productivity and is quickly becoming established on the market with a huge demand.

The new machine is giving customers the opportunity to use the technology of this innovative machine series to produce fabrics for outwear and underwear. It is available in gauges E 18 and E 24, has a working width of 210”, and can reach the same high operating speed as the OJ 59/1 B. However, increasing the number of guide bars compared to the first Lace.Express machine means that more patterns can now be produced. By using thick yarns, the new machine can also work structured patterns. Up to 32 pattern bars are available for processing yarns to produce a wide range of designs.

The new lace raschel machine is far superior compared to reference machines having a large number of guide bars on the market. Extensive experience gained with using the machine in practice has shown that the output of the OJ 83/1 B is 44 per cent higher and the figure is similar for profitability when producing apparel lace. T

This new machine from Karl Mayer is also efficient in terms of its energy consumption. The OJ 83/1 B consumes up to 40 per cent less energy compared to other reference machines on the market. Karl Mayer’s LEO system is behind this considerable reduction. The basic design takes into account the technical concepts of tribology, the pneumatic systems, and the drives for yarn feed, fabric take-down and batching. By optimising the construction, energy losses can be minimised and energy can be utilised more efficiently.

In terms of its ergonomic features, the new OJ 83/1 B also benefits from the high standards typical of Karl Mayer - in particular, the movable Operator Interface, hinged stitch comb bar, easy access to all the drives, a new creel design and an optional, integrated LED lighting system makes operating the machine easy.
