Karl Mayer, Germany’s leading textile machinery company, offers some of the best and effective technical solutions for producing terry goods, along with ecological benefits. Sustainability and environmental protection are becoming increasingly important in textile production – and this also applies to the production of warp-knitted terry fabrics.

The company’s Prosize sizing machine can offer advantages for the environmental footprint of the entire manufacturing process when producing woven terry goods. This efficient warp preparation machine operates on the basis of a pre-wetting principle, which involves soaking the yarn with hot water before the size is applied. This permits savings of up to 40 per cent to be made in sizing additives and energy.

To carry out this beneficial pre-treatment process, the Prosize has been equipped with the HSB-PW size box, that is, it is available as a prewetting version. The innovative size box also delivers ecological advantages for the sizing process itself. Instead of the usual immersion and bath application process, the size is applied in three, highly turbulent, homogeneous application zones, with spray bar technology and a subsequent application/squeeze roller system. This well-thought-out processing sequence can reduce the consumption of sizing agent by up to 10 per cent. Reduced size consumption also means less effluent and a lower energy consumption when preparing the chemicals for application to the yarns.

Karl Mayer also supplies the TM 4 TS-EL for producing warp-knitted terry fabrics. This four- bar tricot machine processes staple-fibre yarns and produces high-quality textiles, in which the terry loops are firmly anchored into the ground during the stitch-forming process. The pull-out resistance of the loops is much higher than that of comparable woven fabrics. Warp-knitted towels and bathrobes can, therefore, be used for longer, which generates less waste. The longer replacement cycles also reduce the consumption of resources.

The TM 4 TS-EL consumes roughly 87 per cent less energy per kg of fabric produced than airjet weaving machines, which require large amounts of energy to produce the compressed air. This advantage is also enhanced by the high efficiency of this terry warp knitting machine. (GK)
