Karl Mayer’s new RSJ 4/1 ON raschel machine reduces the time-to-market and brings a touch of individuality to the mass market. The machine exploits all the advantages of integrated software solutions and electronic guide bar control when producing patterns.
It makes use of the high-tech connectivity of the k.ey and k.innovation systems in Karl Mayer’s KM.ON digital brand. The RSJ 4/1 ON is the first machine to integrate the extensive k.innovation systems to optimise the virtual development of textiles. Thanks to its collaborative features, k.innovation is designed to deliver more than just patterning software and focuses on a new type of product development.
The RSJ 4/1 ON is also designed to deliver maximum productivity. With a 50% wider working width, this new machine is said to offer a 37% better cost:benefit ratio than its predecessor for the same speed. Like other state-of-the-art products produced by the Karl Mayer Group, the machine can be networked to other intelligent KM.ON systems via k.ey to increase production efficiency. The machine is available with a working width of 195" and a gauge of E 28. The first machines will be available at the beginning of 2020.
The k.innovation systems include a web-based design tool, so that customers can produce the jacquard patterns themselves or else modify them according to their own ideas. Global collaboration with creative internal and external partners is, therefore, efficient and secure.
