Karl Mayer has added the JL 65/1 B machine to its jacquardtronic lace series. The machine is available in gauges E 18 and E 24, and features a working width of 132 inches plus a two-inch extension for the tenter frame. It was developed for problem-free coarse bourdon cord processing.
The HKS 2-M is the latest addition to Karl Mayer’s tricot machine line. The 180-inch-wide version can operate at maximum speeds of 3,200 meters per minute, which is approximately 20 per cent faster than its predecessor. A 210-inch-wide version can reach top speeds of 3,000 meters per minute.
The HKS 2-M includes the Kamcos a computer platform, electronic speed control of the main drive, and electronic systems for controlling the fabric take-down and yarn feed. The medium stroke machine is suitable for producing non-stretch fabrics featuring low stitch number and loose yarn running in gauges of up to E 32. End-uses for such technical and semi-technical fabrics include mattress covers, velour fabrics for furniture, nets, sporting goods, shoe fabric and printing grounds. The machine also is capable of producing tulle and other open mesh, stylish fabric for the clothing sector.
Beginning September 2014, Karl Mayer will include new flexible reusable pattern guide fingers and strings on all new lace raschel machines.
