New TL 71/1/36 produces high-quality patterns in Textronic Lace sector
Aug '09
The new TL 71/1/36 High-quality relief lace is always in demand, especially when it combines filigree patterning with opulent designs. The ability to produce exclusive lace fabrics efficiently, will always guarantee lace manufacturers a share of the market. KARL MAYER is utilising all the impulses coming from this sector in developing its machine ranges.

At the beginning of this year, this well-known textile machine builder extended its Textronic Lace range with the addition of the new TL 71/1/36, so that it can now offer its customers a model capable of producing higher quality products and a greater range of patterns than its predecessor. The speed of this innovative lace machine is also almost 40% higher than that of the high-bar Textronic machines.

The new machine is designated the TL 71/1/36 and offers even greater patterning potential, i.e. there is an additional shog line behind the fall plate, so that the maximum number of 24 pattern bars on existing Textronic machines has now been increased to 30 strings on this machine.

Increasing the number of strings has enabled the company's clients to profit from being able to produce a greater range of attractive patterns. The flexible TL 71/1/36 can work a variety of completely new patterns in the same easy and efficient way that all the previous Textronic designs have been produced. A shog path of up to 170 needles, together with the additional six pattern bars, extends the patterning potential and increases the quality of the high-end relief lace even more – and at a higher productivity rate. The TL 71/1/36 can now reach speeds of 500 min-1 and can produce lace economically for every segment of the market. This exceptional efficiency and flexibility is based on state-of-the-art technology.

The flexible Textronic Lace machine is fitted with components that are easy to operate and control. It is equipped with pattern bars driven by servomotors and operates with electronic control of fabric take-down and batching.

Other features that help to minimise the time and effort required for operating and maintaining the machine include the drive concept, which is based on servomotors, a modern man/machine interface with touchscreen facility for rapidly accessing all the important machine data and functions, and the ergonomic arrangement of all the controls. An additional feature of the TL 71/1/36 is that it can be incorporated into a network.

The machine control computer, which is fitted with an Ethernet facility, and the new, easy-to-use USB interface for loading the pattern data, enable the new Textronic Lace to be networked to other machines in the plant and to the machine control station. The entire concept is extremely impressive! European customers were extremely interested in the TL 71/1/36 when it was shown in KARL MAYER's new Development Centre in April of this year. The first machines are already being delivered to a number of customers.
