Karl Mayer to present new technologies at ShanghaiTex
At ShanghaiTex which runs from June 15-18, 2015, Karl Mayer will present three new machines; the TM 4 TS EL, the HKS 4-M and MJ 59/1 S Multibar Jacquardtronic Lace and other machines in Hall W1, Stall no. C-02.
One of the technologies, the TM 4 TS EL is suitable for processing staple-fibre yarns on terry machines while the HKS 4-M sets new standards for four-bar HKS machines in terms of speed.
The MJ 59/1 S has a special bar configuration, enabling it to offer new patterning possibilities and for companies specialising in warp preparation, it will also showcase the IsoSize sizing machine and a creel.
“In addition to machines, visitors will also be able to view a wide range of textile samples and examples of applications, and a large number of experts will be on hand to talk to,” Karl Mayer said in a press release.
A new MJ model, the MJ 59/1 S, will be also be on show with the ‘S’ in the machine name standing for ‘stitch forming’ and indicates that the machine has a new configuration.
In the front position of the knitting elements, this new machine has a stitch-forming jacquard bar and not the normal pillar-stitch-forming ground guide bar.
The characteristic appearance features a perfectly symmetrical, regular net pattern, worked on the basis of a powernet lapping.
Other patterning possibilities are the result of the machine having 20 more guide bars compared to the JL 40 F Jacquardtronic Lace version at the same operating speed.
Fabric produced on the MJ 59/1 S can also be produced in a lower weight than is normally typical for Jacquardtronic lace and in a gauge of E 28, has a fine filigree appearance.
Another machine in the MJ series, an MJ 59/1 B with a working width of 210", will be shown at an open-house event to be held at Karl Mayer (China) at the same time as ShanghaiTex.
Two new innovations in the RD range of machines; the RDJ 5/1 and an RD 7/2-12 EN, each with new machine gauges will also be demonstrated at the technology show in Changzhou City.
The knitting technology producer will also be displaying an HKS 4-M four-bar tricot machine, whose speed has also been optimised.
Depending on what it is being used for, this new high-speed model can reach up to 25 per cent higher speeds than its predecessor with mainly the knitting movement that has been modified to enable it to do so.
The HKS 4-M can be fitted with N or EL pattern drive and with a drive for feeding elastane, while the pile mechanism will no longer be available.
The new HKS 4-M will be available in the current gauges of E 18 to E 32 and is available with a working width of 210" at present and versions having widths of 130" and 180" will be available in the future.
Just like its predecessor, this new machine, with its new configuration, is ideal for producing all types of apparel textiles and semi-technical textiles, particularly fabrics for car seats. (AR)
