Mayer & Cie (MCT) will display a mesh and body mapping specialist, the electronic single jersey machine MJ 3.2 E, at ITMA 2019, in hall H 8.0, booth C204. The leading textile and garment technology exhibition will be held from June 20-26, 2019, in Barcelona, Spain. MCT is a leading international manufacturer of circular knitting machines from Germany.

Body mapping, like a similar structure, mesh, is much in demand in the sporting market segment. Athleisure is currently a key growth driver for circular knits. Mesh is a net-like hole pattern. A finer basic thread, usually a monofilament yarn, is responsible for the hole structure while the thicker plating thread – cotton for example – provides the requisite thick spots. Mesh structures require one-sided plating and the basic thread is invisible in the finished fabric. Mesh can serve as both a fashion and a functional element, such as by ensuring ventilation of selected body areas.

Body mapping too takes the different perspiration areas of the human body into account, but double-sided plating creates the patterns. Body mapping also requires larger plain-coloured areas in the back or abdominal region. Because different colours are used, inaccuracies in the plating would be visible. Furthermore, body mapping structures almost without exception require elastomeric plating. That is the only way to achieve a body-hugging fit that also ensures a high degree of freedom of movement, according to MCT.

The new MJ 3.2 E takes all these challenges into account. Reliable plating of both the basic and the plating thread is key. For both, the machine can process elastomer yarn. New cam parts and improved thread guides ensure reliable plating. The machine’s conventional sinker technology provides flexibility. This means both press off and plating are handled optimally with a wide variety of yarns and the MJ 3.2 E will always yield a high fabric quality.

The MJ 3.2 E’s capabilities extend way beyond its body mapping and mesh specialities. That is due to the machine’s 3-in-1 concept (there are two conversion kits for the MJ 3.2 E). To produce mesh and body mapping structures the machine runs on 2-way technology and 3.2 feeders per inch. It also runs on 2-way technology to achieve peak productivity for full jacquard, reaching a speed factor of up to 850. That corresponds to an up to 20 per cent higher output than that of the two established.

Along with the new MJ 3.2 E and the two Relanit machines, the Relanit 1.6 E and the Relanit 2.4 E, MCT has other machines in its portfolio that are peak sportswear performers. The MV4-3.2 II and the S4-3.2 produce fine-gauge knitwear made of various synthetic fibres. Both knit fine gauges, the MV4-3.2 II even up to E60, and are suitable for making running shirts, for example. (GK)
