Mayer & Cie to focus on highly productive machines at ITME

“Breaking the limits” – on ITME 2012 in Mumbai the market leader of circular knitting machines is focusing on highly productive machines both for the garment and also for the growing market of elastic mattress ticking fabrics sector.

9th INDIA ITME 2012 will be held from 2nd - 7th Dec 2012 Bombay Convention & Exhibition Centre, Mumbai.

For many years already the textile industry appreciates the advantages of the relative technology, an innovation by Mayer & Cie., which has got its roots already in the eighties of the past millennium.

The latest version of the ultra high speed series from Mayer & Cie. the Relanit 4.0 UHS achieves incredible 70 revs. in a 30“ machine during the production of plain single jersey fabric with a speed factor of 2100 thus facilitating production quantities of more than 1500 kg per day!! The belt drive is controlled over special servo motors which can be operated from the display of the machine. This guarantees an exact yarn supply and avoids fluctuations in the yarn quantity supplied which in general can appear because of lint and oil accumulation when working with belt drives with quality wheels.

In order to further increase the efficiency of the machine the Relanit 4.0 has got a computer-controlled knit-on aid which increases the yarn tension for the knit-on process automatically for a short time and makes the knitting-on a piece of cake. Production quantities so far unreached in the production of single jersey striper fabrics do become reality now.

The new S4-3.2 R II combines productivity and flexibility in a way so far not imaginable. It is the first striper machine in the world being in a position to produce single striper fabrics with 3 or - by combination of individual feeders also with more colors - at 3.2 knitting feeders per inch. While the majority of striper fabrics are generally produced with 1.6 knitting feeders per inch (which corresponds to 48 knitting feeders at 30 inch diameter), the absolute limit for 3 colors was at maximum 2.4 knitting feeders per inch for 3 colors so far.

The patented Mayer & Cie. solution offers the possibility to produce single jersey fabrics with 3.2 knitting feeders per inch for the first time (which corresponds to 96 knitting feeders at 30 inch) and this with up to 4 needle tracks.

Advantage for our customers: A productivity which is up to 70 % higher compared to the current production of 6 color striping fabrics as well as the possibility to use this machine as fully-fledged high-performance single jersey machine with a linear speed of 1.56 m/s (corresponds to 39 revolutions per minute at 30 inch).

With this development the traditionally high costs involved in the production of striper goods will in future be reduced noticeably for our customers.

More than 10 years ago the success story of knitted mattress ticking fabrics began, initially in Europe and a bit later also in the USA, the secrets of which besides a pleasant grip are especially in the for knitted goods natural elasticity.
