Mayer & Cie unveils Ovja 1.6 machine for shoe fabric

Jul '17
Mayer & Cie. (MCT), a leading global manufacturer of circular knitting machines from Germany, has launched Ovja 1.6 EE-3WT/2WT, the first machine in the company’s product range that is specially designed for the manufacture of show upper material. Circular knitted fabric is growing increasingly popular as an upper material for leisure and sport shoes.

A circular knitting machine’s output is around ten to twenty times that of a flat knitting machine and a warp knitting machine needs several warp beams to produce the patterns required for shoe upper material. The warp beams have to be prepared, which requires a labour input that is only worthwhile if larger quantities of the patterned fabric are to be manufactured. If a circular knitting machine is to produce a pattern, it can be changed swiftly and without complications by means of the design software. As a result, smaller lots are profitable on a circular knitting machine.

The Ovja 1.6 ET 3 WT, for example, is an established machine in the Mayer & Cie. product range. With its stitch transfer option for the production of perforated or hole designs it has already proved suitable for the manufacture of shoe upper material.

The machine is very versatile in terms of the patterns it can produce, especially because it can transfer stitches on every third system. Its three-way technology ensures maximum design flexibility by means of individual needle selection. It makes a wide range of structures, including the above-mentioned hole structure, possible. Using a conversion kit, the Ovja 1.6 ET 3 WT can also be quickly used as a full jacquard machine to produce multi-coloured shoe designs.

The Ovja 1.6 EE – 3WT/2WT uses three-way technology in the cylinder and two-way technology in the rib dial, thereby ensuring maximum pattern variety. This combination makes it an optimal footwear machine that is especially suitable for the production of multi-coloured designs along with microstructure elements. (GK)
