Karl Mayer unveils terry fabrics made with TM 4 TS EL
Sep '17
Karl Mayer, leading textile machinery firm from Germany, has released a new collection of bath towels made with super heavy warp-knitted terry fabrics with its TM 4 TS EL, a special terry tricot machine used for making terry fabrics from staple-fibre yarns. The bath towels feature long repeats, hems, and borders and are useful for the hotel sector.

Soft, fluffy fabrics having the typical loop strength of warp-knitted fabrics, and consequently their high wash resistance, are mainly used at the premium end of the hotel market. The TM 4 TS EL at Karl Mayer was threaded with thick yarns in order to meet the appropriate requirements.

Christiane Litterst, a product developer in textile technology from Karl Mayer said, “We used OE-spun cotton yarns having a count of Ne 12/1 in ground guide bars, GB 1 and GB 4. Cotton yarns in this count have never been processed on tricot machines before. Even at a speed of 800 min -1, fly formation was not an issue with the type of pattern and yarns selected.”

The lowest count recommended previously was Ne 16. Despite this, no problems were encountered during the warp knitting process. To work the ground, cotton of Ne 16/1 was used in GB 3 and polyester of 100 den was used in GB 2.

No changes had to be made to the finishing sequences either. The fabric produced weighs 600 g/ square metres, has a fluffy handle, and is extremely absorbent. The EL pattern drive of the TM 4 TS EL enables loop-free stripes to be worked to produce the pattern, and the fabric edges are worked directly during the process.

The universal terry tricot machine also enables different loop heights to be worked in the same article, and very lightweight fabrics of the highest quality can also be produced. Even those warp-knitted terry fabrics weighing 200 g/ square metres have an attractive and extremely stable construction. (GK)
