Karl Mayer HKS 3-M technology helps knit net fabrics

Delicate warp-knitted tulle or net fabrics lend transparency and style to fashion, as embroidery offers a very wide range of net patterns.

To produce these extremely delicate creations, use is made of Raschel machines and the HKS 3-M, which is a high-production tricot machine that ensures cost-efficient production and also a wide range of patterns.

“The collection of openwork net designs is based on developments at Karl Mayer, being entirely made from polyamide monofilaments,” a Karl Mayer press release informed.

“Due to the use of these monofilaments, the lightweight fabrics are easier to process further and retain their dimensional stability when stretched for embroidering,” it added.

In addition, the risk of the yarn being damaged by the embroidery needle is reduced, with product developers at Karl Mayer planning further embroidery trials.

A remarkable feature of these textiles, compared to conventional embroidery grounds, is the soft handle with the transposed openwork structure, accounting for the extraordinary haptic properties.

Like previous collections made from monofilament yarns, the tulle patterns feature three-stitch hexagonal constructions which, in contrast to the conventional design, are characterised by holes of different lengths.

“The reason for the variation in dimensions is the transposition of pillar stitch parts of flexible length; a stylish design, since the length of the pillar-stitch sections is restricted to three stitch courses,” it explained.

To overcome this design limit, every two pillar stitches are worked and linked with two counter lapped inlays.

The warp-knitted tulle fabrics from the HKS 3-M can be produced not only with an original design, but also in a highly efficient manner.

The designs were produced at a speed of 2200 min-1 in E 32 gauge and at a working width of 210 at Changle Hengshen Fiber Technology. (AR)
