The result of the latest upgrade made to the Jacquardtronic range was the optimisation of the JL 65/1B. In this case, the development work did not only focus on making the machine “faster and wider”.
Improved efficiency by increasing the working width and speed
The development work carried out by KARL MAYER involved making specific modifications and changing the technical design, changes which considerably increased the productivity of the Jacquardtronic Lace with 65 guide bars.
These innovations on the new JL 65/1B and F models with a working width of 132" enable them to reach maximum speeds of 800 min-1, which means that they are 60% faster than their predecessors. The older machines operated at speeds of up to 500 min-1.
Also in this range is the JL 65/1B with a working width of 168" which, because of its overall design, can reach almost the same speed as its sister machine with a width of 132". It is more efficient than the previous 132"-machine with its old design.
The performance has been increased by 25%, just by extending the width of the new machine from 132" to 168".
The new machine concept also involved repositioning the pattern drive, with the string bars being controlled from one side. This change enabled the performance potential to be fully utilised for the relevant widths, and guarantees smooth machine running.
As well as being extremely efficient, the new JL 65/1B operates at the same high level of precision offered by all KARL MAYER’s machines, and is easy to operate. All the operating elements are arranged ergonomically and are also easy to see. Data can be transferred easily and clearly, either via an Ethernet interface or touchscreen.
Huge patterning potential – as always
The JL 65/1B and F are fitted with electronically controlled systems for the yarn feed, fabric take-down and pattern drive, as well as with KAMCOS technology and its Motion Control/Multi Speed system.
These enable this multibar jacquard raschel machine to work a wide range of design options. Clipped looks, muted, three-dimensional effects, and distorted grounds in a wide range of structures and variations can be produced, as well as large-repeat pattern motifs and sweeping contours processed in bourdon yarns. Different yarn materials can also be used to produce a greater range of designs.
Another advantage of the Jacquardtronic Lace machine is that it is still possible to change the starting position of the pattern quite freely – to make optimum use of its patterning potential.
