Mayer & Cie S4-3 2 R Allows Three- To Six-Color Striping

Mayer & Cie. GmbH & Co. KG, Germany, reports its S4-3.2 R circular knitting machine with 108 feeders and 34-inch cylinder diameter handles up to three colors per feeder over 108 feeders or six colors over 54 feeders. The machine features 3.2 feeders per inch for striping up to three colors, or 1.6 feeders per inch for six colors. Replacing striping non-knit feeders with knitting feeders allows 3.2 feeders per inch for structures having up to four needle tracks, with or without elastomer plating. Quick-change gauge conversion enhances flexibility, and the machine runs at a speed of up to 20 revolutions per minute (rpm) when stripes are produced, and up to 31 rpm when there are no stripes.

Mayer & Cie.'s S4-3.2 II model with an E44 gauge to produce a knitted silk effect can be equipped with unfolding frames that eliminate squeeze edges, and can knit two- and four-needle structures and single-jersey plating. Up to four needle types can be used for each of three needle positions. This model also features quick-change gauge conversion.
