Karl Mayer, a leading textile machinery manufacturer headquartered in Germany, has announced that Korea’s Don-Jin Textile has installed the 125,000th jacquard raschel machine by Karl Mayer, RSJC5/1EL, in the spring of 2018. Dong-Jin Textile is one of the most well-known players in the sports shoe fabric sector and works for big brand names worldwide.

The new jacquard raschel machine has been specifically modified and offers maximum patterning flexibility. It operates at a unique speed of 1,200 min -1. The high-speed machine was sent quickly by air on its way to the customer’s site. It immediately went into production, without first undergoing processing trials in the customer’s research department, which had been the original plan, according to a press release.

Dong-Jin Textile exclusively manufactures shoe fabrics for the sports industry and is one of the biggest global suppliers in this sector. This company is also one of the biggest in the country’s textile sector. It has a workforce of 600 employees and also uses a large number of fabric producers acting as subcontractors, especially in the southeast of the Korean Peninsula.

Dong-Jin Textile and Karl Mayer have been working together for 50 years. The company founder, Byung Kil, Choi and his son, Woo Chul, Choi, who now manages the company, have bought more than 250 warp knitting machines – exclusively from Karl Mayer. The company has invested in high-speed tricot machines, double-bar, and jacquard raschel machines as well as warping machines.

The machines are operating in several factories in South Korea and Vietnam. Dong-Jin Textile also intends manufacturing in Indonesia from the second half of 2019. (GK)
