Karl Mayer debuts wide width Multibar Lace machine

KARL MAYER has incorporated a new working width into its tried-and-tested ML range of Multibar Lace machines, and has thus created the right conditions for increasing the production output by as much as 50%.

The ML series is one of KARL MAYER’s best-selling product ranges. The successful Multibar Lace machines were launched onto the market for the first time at the beginning of 2011, and demand for them has been extremely high. Roughly 300 machines have been sold since they were introduced onto the market.

Above all, the current trend for decorating garments with lace, which can be seen in Asia in particular, has stimulated demand for the Multibar Lace machines. Big American making-up companies are also showing a continuing interest in lace produced on these efficient and versatile machines.

To cater for the market in a targeted manner, KARL MAYER offers three models: the ML 34, the ML 46 and the ML 41, all of which are available in a working width of 134". All three machines will also be available with a working width of 210" in future.

Extending the working width enables more articles to be produced simultaneously and productivity to be increased. When producing non-stretch lace goods for example, two panels having a width of 102 to 103" or three panels having a width of between 65 and 68" can be produced in parallel – depending on the dimensions of the stenter available during the subsequent finishing process. The same also applies to the production of lace bands.

The ML 46, with its high number of guide bars, has a width of 210" and is particularly interesting for producing kebayas in Indonesia. With this increased working width, manufacturers of this traditional garment can produce four fabric webs, which are usually between 47 and 52" wide, simultaneously across the working direction – which is double the production rate of the version having a width of 134".

For Indonesian manufacturers of kebayas, this makes domestically produced fabrics increasingly more attractive than imported Chinese fabrics. Saris having a width of 50" per panel can also be produced. The Multibar Lace machine, with a width of 210", went on sale at the beginning of June 2013. The machines are available in gauges of E 18 and E 24. The ML 46 and ML 34 went on sale first. The ML 46 comprises guide bars arranged in eleven shog lines, a warp beam stand, a creel on top, and the 13 D batching unit.
