Karl Mayer knitwear machine produces E 50 gauge fabric

May '12
Last year, KARL MAYER equipped its HKS 2-3 E machine to operate at a gauge of E 50 and by doing this created the perfect tool for producing the finest stretch warp knits in the world. E 50 gauge fabrics are incredibly soft and supple and have a silky shimmer – making a promise to the designers in search of completely new creations, which can only be kept as long as the entire production process is in perfect harmony.

The product developers at KARL MAYER expected a number of challenges, especially when it came to finishing these fine textiles. They asked themselves the question of how these fabrics with their smooth, uniform surface, high yarn and stitch density per square centimetre, and the resulting elastic recovery and elongation parameters would behave during finishing. Cooperating with Elastic & Weskott Textilveredlung GmbH gave them all the answers they needed.

This experienced, traditional company finished some raw fabric produced in the new E 50 gauge, and gathered some important information along the way.
