Karl Mayer to debut new 3D warp-knitted textile machines

German producer of warp knitting technologies, Karl Mayer is launching two new machines for 3D warp-knitted textiles in China.

Karl Mayer has invited specialists to an open-house event scheduled for January 22 and 23, 2015 and the new machines in the RD series will be working patterns for the shoe sector in particular.

The RDJ 5/1 is a basic machine for simple jacquard-patterned spacer fabrics and offers manufacturers of warp-knitted spacer textiles competitive advantages in a variety of applications.

However, according to Karl Mayer, its cost to benefit ratio was designed especially to meet the requirements of the shoe fabric market in China.

With two guide bars fewer than the RDPJ 7/1, the RDJ 5/1 offers adequate patterning possibilities for designing shoes and a high level of efficiency at the same time.

The configuration and features of the machines are also different. Whereas the RDPJ 7/1 can either be supplied with N or EL guide bar control, the RDJ 5/1 is available with N pattern drive only.

The width and distance between the trick plates on both machines are the same and the available gauges typical of the machines.

The RDJ 5/1 is available in gauges E 22 and E 24 and the RDPJ 7/1 EL is available in gauges E 24 and E 28 and delivery of the first new machine is scheduled for spring 2015.

On the other hand, the RD 7/2-12 EN is an efficient, all-round machine, thanks to the electronic pattern drive and offers maximum design possibilities and so can produce a wide range of different products.

With this specific feature, this sturdy, all-round machine is mainly used by shoe fabric manufacturers operating the N drive version.

Complex designs are frequently not worked with pattern discs but with pattern chains, which involves a loss of productivity.

There is now an alternative to this, i.e. a new electronic guide bar drive offering the flexibility of pattern discs and chains at a lower cost than the conventional EL pattern drive.

“The basic EL pattern drive, with its excellent cost to benefit ratio, is now available for the new RD 7/2-12 EN for the first time,” Karl Mayer informs. (AR)
