Karl Mayer Upgrades RSE 4-1, Relaunches HKS 4 F
As of April 2010, warp-knitting machinery manufacturer Karl Mayer Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH,
Germany, will offer its RSE 4-1 four-bar raschel machine, used for processing stretch fabrics, with
components made from lightweight, high-strength carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP). The company
has redesigned the machine to handle the new components and the resulting increased speed of
operation, and modified the needles to enhance resistance to lateral distortion.
In May 2010, Karl Mayer will reintroduce its HKS 4 F terry machine for high-speed, efficient production of premium terry fabrics from filament yarns. The machine offers speeds of up to 1,400 revolutions per minute, gauges of E 24 and E 28, and a working width of 136 inches.
