Karl Mayer changes dynamics of lace with new technology
Apr '14
With the new MT 51/1/32, KARL MAYER is giving new impetus to the Textronic lace market, both economically and technically. This machine offers an exceptionally high level of performance for a low investment outlay, thus enabling lace, with its characteristic relief-like designs, to be produced competitively.

In this case, the MT 51/1/32 scores highly both in terms of its economic viability and its designs. The machine’s special configuration means that the new Multibar Textronic Lace machine has more than 32 yarns available in front of the fall-plate, thus offering a unique patterning potential in this segment.

In particular, this includes the production of more complex and more varied fall-plate effects than ever before – which is particularly interesting for the women’s outerwear sector – and the ability to produce larger widths of lace bands.

The new MT 51/1/32 is available in a working width of 134" and a gauge of E 24. Gauges E 18 and E 28 will also be available in future. Details of the technical features of the machine will be available at ITMA ASIA + CITME (which is to be held from 16 to 20 June in Shanghai) in hall E 3, stand D 01, where the machine will be exhibited in operation on KARL MAYER’s stand.

KARL MAYER is expecting the visitors to be extremely interested in this new machine. Just after the launch of the new MT 51/1/32 in December 2013 in China, this textile machinery manufacturer received excellent feedback from the market and was able to make a number of business deals. The first deliveries are scheduled for the third quarter of this year – and they will also be made from KARL MAYER’s Chinese subsidiary.

An MT 31/1/16 with fewer fall-plate yarns as a starter machine and an MT 43/1/24 with a reduced number of guide bars are also to be unveiled at the same time as the MT 51/1/32.
