Mayer & Cie (MCT) is set to present its latest range of electronic textile machines at ITMA Asia, the leading textile machinery exhibition in Asia, which will be held from October 15 to 19, 2018, at Shanghai, China. MCT is a leading international manufacturer of circular knitting machines, which are used in the production of modern textiles.

The company will show the Spinit 3.0 E, the OVJA1.6 EE 3/2 WT, and the OVJA 2.4 EC. It will be the first time that the Spinit spinning and knitting machine and the OVJA1.6 EE 3/2 WT, designed especially for knitting shoe uppers, will be exhibited in China, the company confirmed in a press release.

“We have noticed for some time an increase in demand in the high-end machine segment in China. High-output circular knitting machines are trending too. The new OVJA 2.4 EC that MCT will present to trade visitors for the first time at ITMA Asia is just such a machine. With its 2.4 systems per inch, it is a full jacquard machine that outperforms Chinese manufacturers’ conventional models in productivity. Thanks to its three-way-technology, the OVJA 2.4 EC offers great variety in design patterns. It is aimed at discerning Chinese customers who produce fabrics for outer garments, sports, and leisurewear,” Rudolf Crass, MCT’s regional sales manager with responsibility for China said.

The OVJA 2.4 EC’s design is borrowed from that of the successful OVJA 2.4 SE mini-jacquard machine and its functionality is based on that of the OVJA 2.4 E full jacquard machine. The most important difference between it and the two machines on which it is modelled is the implementation of the needle selection. The OVJA 2.4 E relies on electronic individual needle selection on one track via control board and the Chinese model uses 16 athermal electromagnetic actuators on eight tracks.

“We are delighted to be able to present our Spinit 3.0 E spinning and knitting machine at this year’s ITMA Asia. Spinit Fancy Jersey with its characteristic pattern variations can only be made on the MCT machine. The Spinit 3.0 E offers benefits in the manufacturing process. To produce a single jersey, it requires much less energy, time, and space than the conventional process,” Michael A. Tuschak, MCT’s spinitsystems marketing and sales manager said.

The OVJA 1.6 EE 3/2 WT uses three-way technology in the cylinder and two-way technology in the rib dial. That ensures a very wide range of patterns for the multi-colour jacquard machine, which can, at the same time produce a hole-structure look by means of multiple tuck loops. It also produces plain and multi-coloured spacer fabrics up to 5 mm thick, which is very much in demand for shoe uppers. (GK)
