High-Speed Lace Machine Gives Lingerie New Effects

The FL 20/16 is a new lace machine for the production of lingerie fabrics from Karl Mayer Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH, Germany. It can operate at a speed of 700 revolutions per minute, a speed that has not previously been reached, according to Karl Mayer.

The machine can be used to produce shimmering crinkle effects on delicate undergarment fabrics; checks in rigid geometric lines on stretch grounds; large-repeat, floral designs on powernet fabrics; and clipped effects that give patterns a clearly defined, free-standing 3-D look.

The FL 20/16 lace machine from Karl Mayer can impart a variety of effects to lingerie fabrics.

The FL 20/16 features innovative servo motor-driven pattern and ground guide bars. The pattern guide bars, known as string bars, comprise a thin wire with newly developed yarn carriers. It also features an electronic fabric take-down mechanism and an electronic batching facility.The machine is capable of processing powernet fabrics with four ground guide bars, while its 16 string bars simultaneously work a number of different patterns.
