Karl Mayer Revamps HKS 3-M

Karl Mayer Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH, Germany, now offers a third generation of its HKS 3-M three-bar tricot knitting machine, reporting that the new design enables 15-percent higher speeds than the previous model, and is more compact in its construction.

The company has completely redesigned the machine's knitting motion, machine frame and beam let-off frame. The redesign includes improved access to the warp beam rollers on the right-hand side of the machine.

The new version offers a 210-inch working width and E 28 and E 32 gauges. Other widths and gauges will be added in the future.

Karl Mayer notes that the design and movement of the HKS 3-M's knitting elements allow it to work a wide array of stitch densities and lappings and to process all yarn types that are used in warp-knit applications. Fabrics that can be produced include tulle and net curtain, lingerie, sportswear and dense upholstery fabrics; as well as semi-technical mosquito netting and shoe fabrics.
