Mayer & Cie (MCT) is set to display textile machinery for making sports and leisure footwear at ITMA 2019 expo, in hall 8.0, stand C204. The leading textile and garment technology expo will be held from June 20-26, 2019, in Barcelona, Spain. MCT is a leading international manufacturer of circular knitting machines, headquartered in Albstadt, Germany.

The MJ 3.2 E, a single jersey machine for body mapping; the OVJA 1.1 EETT, the specialist in knitted sports and leisure footwear; and the Spinit 3.0 E, which comes with new functions and can now process polyester, will all be a part of the show. The new OVJ 2.4 EM mattress machine consistently fits into this environment in that peak physical performance demonstrably requires optimal regeneration, MCT said in a press release.

The fifth machine on display at ITMA is the only one with no special sports connection, but it is very much in line with the company’s innovative tradition. The prototype on show puts a tried and trusted process to a very modern use – with attractive benefits for customers.

From the textile perspective, body mapping is a kind of mesh fabric with a central characteristic: the ground thread is usually thinner than the plating thread, but also can be used up to the same thickness. Supplying an elastomeric yarn at the ground or the plating thread provides for the required elasticity. In body mapping, the plating thread in combination with the ground thread of a different colour is responsible for the characteristic colouring.

The new MJ 3.2 E is MCT’s high-quality option for body-mapped fabrics. Unlike the Relanit 1.6 E, the previous option for body mapping, the MJ 3.2 E can process elastomeric yarns. Customers can expect an extraordinarily high level of secure plating due to less yarn fluctuation during the stitch formation process. The MJ 3.2 E also sets standards for productivity with a speed factor of 850 at 30 inches and an E 28 gauge.

Since the 2012 Olympics, sports shoes have been known to be available with knitted fabric uppers. All electronic Jacquard machines in the MCT OVJA range score points for productivity and short set-up times for shoe uppers. The main trend is toward multi-colour spacer fabrics with 3D effects, realised by lay-in yarns. And that is exactly what the new MCT OVJA 1.1 EETT can deliver. A multi-colour Jacquard machine with double electronics, it produces a wide range of patterns. This includes a variety of hole structures with bigger and smaller holes, thanks to double transfer. Thereby, the latest OVJA model combines top flexibility and high productivity. This combination takes the OVJA 1.1 EETT to the top rank of shoe machines.
Regeneration and peak sporting performance are known to be closely associated. That is why, for MCT, the OVJA 2.4 EM, its new mattress cover machine, fits neatly into the ITMA concept.

OVJA 2.4 EM is the youngest member of the family of fully electronic
OVJA machines and the premium machine star, producing up to 30 kg of fabric per hour, making it the most productive machine of its kind in the world, as demonstrated by a speed factor of 950. In general, it produces fabric weights of between 200 and 300 grams per square metre, but can also reach more than 500 grams per square metre. Thanks to an improved thread guide and its thread fluctuation control system the OVJA 2.4 EM is also extremely reliable. The horizontal weft thread guide on each cylinder segment ensures that customers can also look forward to improved user friendliness and a wide range of patterns.

The Spinit 3.0 E, in series production since the end of 2018, is part of MCT’s focus on sport at the trade fair. With enhanced performance, the circular knitting machine manufacturer has further developed its multiple award winning machine so that the spinning and knitting machine can now process polyester and athleisure and sportswear can also be produced on the Spinit 3.0 E.
