New KARL MAYER ML series upgrades the production of lace
10
Jan '12
On the one hand, standard lace is one of the essential ingredients in the successful repertoires of lingerie and clothing manufacturers. On the other hand, these delicate fabrics are among those textiles that are subject to the rapidly changing trends of the fashion world, which make increasingly stringent demands of the production technology. Above all, the demand is for the efficient production of even short runs, short changeover times and flexible patterning possibilities – and all this must be achieved for the lowest possible purchasing price.

KARL MAYER has reorganised the set-up of its ML series of machines so that it can optimally support those customers who operate on the fast-moving lace market with its extreme cost constraints.

As of the first quarter of 2012, all the electronic Multibar Lace machines can be bought from KARL MAYER China, and machine types ML 41, ML 34 and ML 46 will be available.

This shift in production should enable the KARL MAYER Group to network all its regional centres of excellence in the best possible way. Whilst the production, quality assurance and development departments at the company's headquarters, with their many years of know-how and expertise in the manufacture of fully electronic Multibar Lace machines, will always be on hand, the Wujin site will profit from its geographical location close to the market and its advantageous business conditions.

All the models in the ML machine series are equipped with the KAMCOS computer platform, electronic guide bar control, and the high-performance, high-precision string bar system for patterning. These features place the Multibar Lace machines at the cutting edge of KARL MAYER's lace production technology.

These three models in the low- and middle-bar sector can cater for the entire production spectrum typical of the mechanically controlled machines in the previous series, but they also offer a number of important advantages. The old type of multibar raschel machines were based on the principles of control by pattern chains or summation drives, and have been an established feature of the market for decades. The latest generation of Multibar Lace machines now enables the users to replace their existing technology with this new technology.

Above all, anyone buying the modern ML models will be able to profit from a much higher level of productivity for their investment compared to the mechanically controlled machines. If the speed is considered as a function of the purchasing price, then the potential for optimisation is even higher. Depending on the lapping and the type of yarns used, the speed can be increased to 900 min-1, which represents more than a 100% increase in performance compared to the previous models in the SU series and the chain-controlled machines.

What is more, the flexibility of the electronic system for controlling the pattern bars is not restricted in the same way as the mechanical pattern chains and summation drives were, an advantage that is further enhanced by the implementation of the string bar concept with its movement path of more than 180 mm.
