New patterns made on the Karl Mayer’s HKS 3-M tricot machine and the RJPC 4 F-NN jacquard raschel are a hit in Turkish net curtain sector. In Turkey, the growth in sales of tricot and raschel machines has been stable over the last two years. Karl Mayer is a developer of solutions for warp knitting, technical textiles, and warp preparation for weaving.

The HKS 3-M is a successful machine for producing embroidery grounds. This high-speed tricot machine produces open embroidery fabrics with a wide variety of ground constructions. These are in high demand, since the volume and range of designs for embroidery grounds are increasing all the time. The HKS 3-M is also being used successfully to produce upholstery fabrics.

Karl Mayer developed a new collection of fabrics on an HKS 3-M machine in a gauge of E 28, and presented it at the ITM 2018 exhibition. With a weight of about 50 g/m², the voile fabrics are extremely light. Dense, striped, relief-like pattern blocks run across the fine, transparent ground. The ground has an attractive, silky shimmer. With its matt/shiny and thick/thin contrasts, the design ensemble is produced in a piece by the types of lapping and yarn used. To create the ground, a fine polyester monofilament yarn with a tri-lobal cross-section was processed in GB 2 and GB 3 in a pillar stitch and 3-needle inlay construction – which is typical of voile. This particular fibre shape creates a soft, shimmering effect. The pattern blocks are produced from a much thicker polyester multifilament yarn in a 2 x 1 or 1 x 1 lapping. The yarns are textured yarns, so that they rise up from the delicate ground to create a full, matt look.

With its wide production repertoire, the RJPC 4 F-NN has been widely used by Turkish manufacturers of net curtains for many years. This jacquard raschel machine with fall plate is ideal for producing chunky fabrics with a hand-made look, as well as delicate, filigree, lightweight curtains. Roughly 300 jacquard net curtain machine are currently operating on the Turkish market and all of them are working to capacity. (GK)
