Body shaping stretch lace articles to be produced on JL 40/1 F

In the past, it seemed that the concepts of glamour and comfort were mutually exclusive when it came to briefs, tops and bras. Women felt that they had to hide their practical, comfortable 'passion killers', whilst their more seductive, glamorous lingerie was unfortunately only worn on special occasions.

As far as modern lingerie is concerned, the boundaries between the functional, usually sporty, everyday collections and the high-end, exquisite ranges are increasingly disappearing. Glamorous lingerie should be, in fact must be, practical and vice versa – and this trend is encouraging textile machinery producers in particular to develop new machines.

KARL MAYER is catering for the demand for lace fabrics with light control by developing the JL 40/1 F. This new Jacquardtronic Lace machine produces fabrics for the lingerie and clothing sectors which, as well as offering a wide range of different patterns, also provide controlled compression. These beautiful, comfortable, light-control garments shape the body gently. They also fit perfectly and enable the underwear to be harmonised with the outerwear, without showing any lines or slipping.

The well-thought-out configuration of the JL 40/1 F is designed to meet the demand for combining design with function.

The configuration of the JL 40/1 F
This innovative machine developed by KARL MAYER was designed to cater for the functional lingerie sector with all the characteristic lace elements.

The newly configured bar arrangement on the JL 40/1 F Jacquardtronic machine enables stitch-forming lappings to be worked using the existing jacquard bar. In combination with the split yarn threading-in arrangement, ground structures having functional characteristics can be produced. Conventional ground structures typical of the narrow fabrics used in lace lingerie, can also be produced. Fine lace fabrics with functional, light-control characteristics can be produced by using the possibility of combining the potential offered by stitch formation with the split threading-in arrangement of the jacquard bars. The fine machine gauge of 28 needles per inch gives both the functional products and the lace fabrics, an elegant, ethereal, transparent appearance.

On the JL 40/1 F, the combination of the stitch-forming jacquard bar, 36 pattern bars and two ground bars for processing elastane is opening up completely new patterning possibilities for the designer and new applications for the textile market. Its high production rate, operating reliability and maximum flexibility also guarantee a high level of productivity for the user.

The technical features of this model are state-of-the-art. It is easy to operate and control all the various elements. Furthermore, the pattern bars, which are driven by servo motors, and the low maintenance requirements, are decisive factors for the drive concept used.
