Mayer & Cie is one of the world's leading manufacturers of circular knitting machines homeland in southwest Germany.

Mayer & Cie. knits rib fabric with three threads on the cylinder side. (base thread plus 2 plating threads, inserted in 1:1, 2:1, 3:1 …)

The new machine design Technit D3 stands for an exciting innovation which is set to open up new fields of application for circular knit fabrics.

This new development knits 3 threads in 3 plies per feeder. The 1st plated thread is 50% visible on the fabric face, while the 2nd plated thread is located inside the fabric and therefore concealed, allowing both threads to be used as a functional thread adding a function to the fabric.This new technology produces fine rib knit goods and 3D spacer fabrics capable of addressing a varied application spectrum. Fine rib with functional threads can be used, for instance, to provide a shield against electromagnetic waves (EMC) in articles of clothing.

The functional thread can be used for electrical transmission of heat in outdoor clothing or seat covers. Thermal functions permitting the selective dissipation of body moisture while offering simultaneous thermal insulation are additional application fields for these new-style fabrics.

Due to their substantially higher abrasion resistance values (2 yarns per stitch and 3 per feeder) make Technit D3 fabrics a particularly suitable option wherever durability is called for: In the home textile sector for seats and upholstered furniture, in the automotive sector for linings and seat covers or for inner linings and inlay soles in shoe production.

But in the field of medical technology too, the function thread can be used for a whole range of different treatment methods - such as knitting in a silver thread.

The Technit D3 is undoubtedly set to open up new and exciting scope for replacing conventional methods by lower-cost circular knitting technology with all its benefits - such as outstanding elasticity and restoring capability.

The Technit D3 comes with up to 4 needle tracks and is offered as standard with a machineframe for 520 mm fabric rolls and Quick-Change for simple gauge conversion, and in a choice of a rib or a spacer fabric version. The relevant conversion kit is offered as an optional extra, allowing one machine to be used for producing both rib and spacer fabrics. By exchanging cam parts the production of Interlock-based knit goods is equally possible.

The Technit D3 is optionally available with an industrial frame (920 mm fabric bales), a giant frame (1250 mm fabric bales), or with an open-width frame.

Patents are pending for all patentable developments associated with the Technit D3.
