Karl Mayer launches machine to produce knit net curtains
Sep '13
Just as clothes are an expression of the personality of the person who wears them, net curtains influence and enhance the atmosphere and style of a room.

Whether they are pretty and romantic, technocratic and modern, or a homage to the seventies, decorative textiles have the right pattern to suit every taste and are not too expensive. Thanks to efficient production techniques, net curtains are one of the most affordable accessories used in interior design – unlike furniture and carpets, for example.

Karl Mayer shows how warp-knitted window fashion can be produced flexibly yet economically. The patterns were produced on an ML 46 Multibar Lace machine in the crosswise direction to the working direction.

This innovative raschel machine was originally developed to produce stretch and non-stretch lace for the lingerie and clothing sector and, at a width of 134", operates at a speed of 850 min-1. By configuring the pattern bars in a specific way, this high-speed machine can now produce full-width fabrics for the net curtain sector, and a wide variety of patterns can be produced.

A wide range of designs can be worked to produce the fabric grounds and motifs. These include, for example, geometric designs made up of angular, decorative effects arranged in stripes alternating with bands worked in a compact, square design, as well as designs featuring a modern, dainty look.  Also the romantic look finds a stage in the net curtaining produced on the ML 46.

This classic window fashion combines flowers and decorative effects with a sweeping, differentiated arching design on a filigree ground – thus bringing a touch of nostalgia to the home.

These examples of fabrics from KARL MAYER show that both dense and transparent net curtains can be produced on the ML 46. Borders can be integrated directly into the fabric by using a special drawing-in arrangement. And all this can be achieved at an unparalleled level of efficiency.
