Karl Mayer extends MJ Lace machine series

Karl Mayer is expanding its multibar Jacquardtronic Lace series of machines by the incorporation of an MJ 65/1B. The multibar Jacquardtronic Lace series also unveiled its MJ 42/1B machine at ShanghaiTex 2013. This machine was launched onto the world market at the same time as the MJ 59/1B, the version with more guide bars.

Both machines are based on the company’s extensive experience with the tried-and-tested ML technology but, by equipping them with a jacquard bar, lean more towards the production possibilities of the Jacquardtronic Lace.

According to the manufacturer, with their exceptional cost : benefit ratio, the models in the new MJ series give Karl Mayer’s customers a considerable competitive edge and are therefore in great demand.

Extremely attractive proposition

Spurred on by its sales success, the company has also been offering a high-bar option in the shape of the MJ 65/1B since December last year.

Increasing the number of guide bars has enabled an even greater range of patterns to be worked, full-width fabrics to be produced efficiently in the crosswise direction, and wide bands to be manufactured, Karl Mayer reports.

The machine was designed to operate at a maximum speed of 850 min-1. Just like its low-bar version, the cost : benefit ratio of the MJ 65/1B has been optimised, which is said to make it an extremely attractive proposition for all lace manufacturers, both in the lingerie and outerwear sectors.

Great deal of interest

This new machine is available in a working width of 134" and a gauge of E 24. Versions having a gauge of E 18 and E 28 are to follow.

As an option, the machine can be equipped with Karl Mayer’s Positive Patternbeam Drive and a 2 x 21" beam frame for the jacquard bar. Karl Mayer in China is responsible for assembling the machine, which is therefore carried out close to this major market for lace production.

According to the manufacturer, there is already a great deal of interest in this new development there, and the first deliveries are scheduled for the fourth quarter of the year.
