KARL MAYER will surely have a flying start with an unmatched technology show at ITMA ASIA + CITME. The innovations belong to the sections of lace production, tricot machines and warp preparation units and they comprise not only new technical developments but also novel textiles and applications.
New-fashioned lace articles produced with high efficiency
Lace manufacturers will have the chance to see even two of KARL MAYER’s innovations, namely the JL 65/1B FASHION and the MT 51/1/32 offering more efficiency and flexibility. Being equipped with Jacquard bars, the MT 51/1/32 is a highly productive Textronic Lace machine that sets entirely new standards by manufacturing lace bands and all-over lace fabrics in a wide range of different designs. The machine is offered in a working width of 134" and it reaches rotational speeds of up to 700 min-1.
During the trade fair the Multibar Textronic Lace in E 24 will produce all-over lace articles for outerwear – and will surely be convincing, at least this is the opinion of Oliver Mathews, KARL MAYER’s Sales Director, “Since December 2013 we have been offering this new development. We have already sold a lot of these machines with delivery time in the 3rd and 4th quarters of this year. We still expect an extremely high demand for this machine which will be first presented to the trade experts during ITMA ASIA + CITME”.
Concerning the Jacquardtronic lace sector, KARL MAYER’s completely redeveloped JL 65/1B FASHION will certainly stand out when it comes to the processing of bourdon cord: This Jacquardtronic machine beats the magic mark of 1,800 dtex when using bourdon cord, thus, manufacturing fabrics with a completely new and striking appearance. For this purpose, the JL 65/1B FASHION processes yarns with a yarn count of up to 3,250 dtex. During the exhibition in Shanghai KARL MAYER will be showing this machine in a working width of 134" and a gauge of E 18 while producing one all-over design with bourdon cord for the fashion sector. It goes without saying that the JL 65/1B FASHION can also manufacture conventional lace bands.
How to produce pattern beams in a most efficient and precise way is demonstrated by KARL MAYER’s new PBW 130/2. In Shanghai this pattern beam warper will be operating at a rotational speed of up to 400 min-1 when making pattern beams with a beam diameter of max. 140 mm and a width of 130". Long running lengths and identical diameters make it possible to tap the full potential during the subsequent processing on lace Raschel machines. Besides, with its variable lap widths between 25 and 220 mm the PBW 130"/2 also offers extremely high flexibility.
