Mayer & Cie machines for knitting fabrics upto E60

Sep '09
High-gauge circular knitting can claim its very own success story. Fabrics which are as fine as silk but provide the benefits of high elasticity can be produced with extreme economy using Mayer & Cie. circular knitting machines – turning circular knitting into an interesting alternative for the manufacture of ultra-fine fabrics compared to other more costly production methods.

This capability also opens up whole new application fields for fine, elegant quality fabrics which have previously been a closed book to knit goods. Because optically, these fabrics offer the impression of being woven, while their elasticity – particularly in combination with elastomer yarns - lends them extremely pleasant wearing properties.

Ideal fields of application include top-quality underwear, shirts, blouses and exclusive outerwear. There are several easily explained reasons why circular knitted ultra-fine fabrics up to gauges as high as E60 – particularly those produced on Mayer & Cie. circular knitting machines – can be reliably produced to an exemplary standard of quality.

On principle, machines producing this type of high-gauge fabric have to work to a high standard of precision, which calls for a high quality of manufacture with minimal tolerances and extreme stability. Working at a gauge of E60 means fitting 60 needles into the space of just one inch, or 25.4 mm.

The needle thickness as well as the trick density in the cylinder is 0.21 mm, placing immense demands on the technology used to mill the channels in which the needles are guided. Using machine technologies generally available in the marketplace, this challenge could not be met with the degree of precision essential to ensure trouble-free operation.

Based on the extensive pool of experience and expertise gathered by the engineers at Mayer & Cie. over many years in the development of special machine tools for knitting cylinder manufacture, the company went ahead with the development of its own internally produced machine tools with the capability to produce this type of high-gauge component.

This move has enabled Mayer & Cie. to guarantee the particularly high standard of machining quality needed to produce what is essentially the heart of any circular knitting machine.

Although the high level of manufacturing precision which has always characterized production at Mayer & Cie. is also a major benefit when it comes to guaranteeing the reliability of other functional components, the materials used are unavoidably exposed to external influences such as temperature.

Given the minimal tolerances involved, it goes without saying that these factors influence the entire functional characteristics of the stitch-forming area, and in particular needle wear. The result: poorer fabric quality and increased needle and material wear through to complete functional breakdown.

Mayer & Cie. became aware of these inherent problems yearsago, also in the field of electronic needle selection, and decided to develop its own temperature control system. This was patented for MCT, is used for in a whole range of application areas and has proven invaluable in practice. The temperature control system has been adapted to work in high and ultra-high gauge machines, and is able to reduce temperature-induced machine problems to almost zero.
