Mayer & Cie (MCT) is set to debut the OVJA 1.1 EETT premium jacquard machine at the industry’s leading trade fair, 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, headquartered in Germany, is a leading manufacturer of circular knitting machines.

MCT has developed the OVJA 1.1 EETT especially for the manufacture of shoe uppers now that fabrics are in demand for sports and leisure footwear. The OVJA 1.1 EETT comes with double electronics and double transfer technology, which is reflected in an extra variety of patterns and, in particular, in innovative hole structures, according to a media statement by MCT.

The new OVJA 1.1 EETT, as the EE in its name indicates in the original German, features electronic individual needle selection in the rib dial and the cylinder, both using 3-way technology and thus making jacquard structures possible on both sides of the fabric. The OVJA 1.1 EETT pairs its double electronics with bi-directional transfer and can thus knit virtually any conceivable pattern. It produces combinations of single and double jersey as well as spacer structures, while the range of hole structures is enormous due to the double transfer function.

Variety written in capital letters, the OVJA 1.1 EETT offers also in terms of gauges, yarn use and machine diameter. With diameters from 30 to 38 inches it knits E18 to E28 gauge fabrics and processes up to 1,200 denier yarns. The machine produces spacer fabrics of up to 5 millimetres thick in the grey goods category.

In designing the OVJA 1.1 EETT, MCT set great store by ease of use. Numerous features make handling the OVJA 1.1 EETT simple. They include the new machine control and the connection to the Knitlink platform.

Circular-knitted shoe uppers for sports and leisure footwear have been an option since 2012 when they debuted at the Olympic Games, since when fabric shoe uppers have mostly been flat-knitted, with circular knitting and warp knitting a fair distance behind in joint second place. When the three techniques are compared, however, circular knitting leads the field for productivity. In addition, setup times are shorter, with the result that smaller batches can be manufactured profitably. (GK)
