Mayer launches path breaking spinning cum knitting technology
Oct '11
At the recently concluded Olympics of the Textile industry – ITMA 2011 in Spain, Germany's Mayer & Cie, introduced a combined spinning-knitting machine - Spinit, which eliminates the need to spin the yarn on ring spindles as well as package it on cones.

For the first time since the first circular knitting machine was introduced, a large extent of the spinning process as well as the entire knitting process has been united in one single jersey machine. The combination allows the production of almost spiral free fabrics along with high savings potential, says Mayer & Cie.

Mayer & Cie, the world's leading circular knitting machine builder by revenues was developing the Spinit at the company's headquarters in Albstadt for a number of years. As per Mayer & Cie, 25 Spinit machines can produce the equivalent of 20,000 ring spinning spindles, 380 winding heads and 20 high speed circular knitting machines.

Spinit is made up of a roving, roving sensor, 3-roller drafting unit, spinning nozzle and circular knitting machine. Mass variation and foreign matter contamination is detected and eliminated during the running process.

Mayer adds that the machine mounted drafting unit has a maximum delivery speed of 250m/min and the maximum delivery speed of the drafting unit is 10 times faster than in ring spinning.
