KARL MAYER's HKS 4 F terry machine makes a comeback

The Germans are well-known for their cuckoo clocks, garden gnomes and their craftiness in getting the best places on the beach at holiday destinations all over the world.

At the crack of dawn, they sneak down to the beach to stake their claim on their little bit of sand – using that indispensable item of beach kit – a large beach towel. This soft, loop-pile fabric can do much more than simply act as a textile demarcation line. We use it to dry off and keep warm, it brightens up the bathroom and beach alike, and pampers our skin. Fleecy terry bathrobes and towels, which are soft and colour-coordinated, also make the spa experience even more enjoyable. And, of course, terry fabrics are indispensable for all those cleaning jobs.

These exquisite, high-end textiles can be produced efficiently on KARL MAYER's HKS 4 F machine. This terry machine processes filaments to produce all the usual terry fabrics with loops on one side only or on both sides, and was refined and improved at the end of 2006, beginning of 2007. The technical improvements have boosted performance by up to 74% and reduced the cost by 25% compared to the previous model. This upgrade sold very well for a time, but was subsequently removed from the range through lack of demand.

Since the middle of this year, however, the wind of change has been blowing on the market for warp-knitted bath/beach textiles and there has been an obvious increase in demand – which was a good enough reason for KARL MAYER to incorporate this tried-and-tested, four-bar, high-speed tricot machine into its range again. The HKS 4 F will be available again as of May 2010. Its impressive technical features include: maximum machine speeds of up to 1,400 min-1, gauges of E 24 and E 28 as standard, and a working width of 136".

Basically, the terry machine is available in two different versions, the HKS 4 FB(Z) and HKS 4 F. The HKS 4 FB(Z) is particularly suitable for producing cotton goods, but can also produce fabrics from filament yarns without any problems. On the other hand, the HKS 4 F can only process filament yarns – but at a much higher speed than the HKS 4 FB(Z).

As befits KARL MAYER's position as a technology leader, a number of specific improvements have been made to this terry machine to mark its comeback. We can reveal that one of these is the brushing unit.
