Karl Mayer's Textronic adds shine to Christmas wear
Dec '14
Karl Mayer’s multibar raschel Textronic machine has enabled apparel manufacturers to make fashionable garments made from lace that can be worn during Christmas as well as on festive occasions. 
The multibar raschel Textronic machine was successfully premiered in December 2013 in China, and was presented to industry professionals at ITMA ASIA + CITME in June 2014 in Shanghai for the first time. It has been a great success since then, the company said in a statement.
Owing to its exceptional speed and low initial outlay, the MT 51/1/32 has been setting new standards on the Textronic lace market for producing outer garments. The special configuration of the bars enables sections of the pattern featuring the typical, relief-like fall-plate effects of Textronic lace to be produced in greater detail and with more complexity than ever before.
The new multibar Textronic lace processed nylon, viscose and elastane to produce a silky fabric with soft length elongation – for that special little surprise under the Christmas tree.
The lace produced on an MT 51/1/32 machine had matt/shiny effects and clear, classic floral pattern which create a festive look. At the side edges, the panel fabric has a decorative border made from tiny scallops. The lower edges also feature fringed scallops. These design elements can be used directly when designing the edges of dresses, collars and fashion tops, Karl Mayer said.
Karl Mayer, set up in 1937, is a leading textile machine manufacturer, especially in warp knitting machine sector, and has set standards in the textile world in warp preparation equipment for warp knitting and weaving. (RKS)
