Germany's leading textile machinery firm, Karl Mayer, has launched a new model, OJ 59/1 B, an electronic lace raschel machine based on a completely new series, known as the LACE.EXPRESS, which with its unique productivity, is setting new trends in the production of apparel lace, aimed specifically at the high-volume market of stylish women's outerwear.

The new machine is designed to complement the TEXTRONIC Lace and the JACQUARDTRONIC Lace machines, which will continue to focus on lingerie goods and functional warp knits.

The LACE.EXPRESS not only delivers an exceptional performance profile, it also has a new look, since the modern design of the OJ 59/1 B has been completely revised. The OJ 59/1 B offers exceptional efficiency when producing large volumes of standard, modern lace and is, therefore, setting the trend in the high-volume, versatile clothing business. The output of this new lace raschel machine may be up to 15 per cent higher than similar machines on the market. Its high productivity and market-optimised price result in a unique cost:benefit ratio. The machine also operates extremely quietly. Its high speed, together with its high operating reliability, results in a level of efficiency that clearly sets the OJ 59/1 B apart from other machines on the market.

In addition to its operating speed, the well-thought-out features of the machine design focus on ergonomic principles. For example, the operator interface can easily be swivelled into different positions for easier viewing, integrated LED lighting over the fabric take-off area provides a clear view, and the drives can be accessed easily. Other ergonomic features include a new creel design and a hinged stitch comb bar. The ease of operation and high operating reliability of the OJ 59/1 B enable it to operate with a minimum of intervention and personnel.

Together with the productivity, the patterning possibilities offered by the OJ 59/1 B are aimed at the outwear market. By making some simple modifications, this machine can process extremely thick bourdon yarns. The necessary equipment can be ordered as an optional configuration when buying new machines, and retrofitting can be carried out very easily. The OJ 59/1 B can also produce multibar lace, depending on its particular specifications.

The new OJ 59/1 B carries Karl Mayer's LEO Label, which means that it conserves energy. The LEO system on this first LACE.EXPRESS machine can reduce energy consumption during operation by up to 40 per cent compared to similar machines on the market. (GK)
