Distance changing made easy by Karl Myer new machine

Karl Mayer’s RD 6/1-12 and RD 7/2-12 (EL) machines are the machines of choice when it comes to efficiently producing high-quality, warp-knitted spacer textile of medium thickness. The machines in the RD series are available in gauges of E 18, E 22 and E 24, in a working width of 138", and with a maximum distance between the knock-over comb bars of 12 mm.

A system for centrally adjusting the distance between the knock-over comb bars has been integrated into the design of the machine in order to fully exploit the potential for accurately changing the thickness of the warp-knitted fabric using the fewest possible operations. 

The unit for easily setting the distance between them for changing the thickness of the warp-knitted textile also carries out the required readjustment of the stitch comb automatically. 

A clever handling system also enables the stitch comb to be swivelled out easily. This system, which is operated by a lever, permits free access to the knitting elements, for example if a yarn breaks, so that there is no need to unscrew any parts, which takes time and effort.
 
The only manual work that has to be carried out is to adapt the knock-over comb bar distance to suit the height of the needle bar.
 
Whereas it is available on the RD 7/2-12 EL as standard, it is an optional feature on the RD 7/2-12 and the RD 6/1-12.
