Mayer & Cie Unveils Technit D3 For Rib And Spacer Knits

Germany-based circular knitting machinery manufacturer Mayer & Cie. reports its Technit D3 machine enables circular knitters to enter new markets.

The new machine knits three threads - one base thread and two plating threads - in three plies per feeder. The first plating thread is 50-percent visible on the face of the fabric, and the second is hidden inside the fabric, with each thread providing a separate function in the fabric. The technology enables cost-effective production of both fine rib-knit products and 3-D spacer fabrics for a range of high-tech apparel, home textile and other applications. The incorporation of a third thread enables specialized functions, such as electromagnetic shielding, heat transmission and other thermal functions, antimicrobial function, and other functions.

The Technit D3 is offered in a rib or spacer fabric version, with a kit available to convert it from one version to the other as needed. Exchange of cam parts enables interlock-based knit production as well.
