A narrow machine with wide applications

Release of the DJ 6/2 (EL), 44", E28 in the second quarter of 2009

(PresseBox) ( Obertshausen, )
The DJ 4/2, 44" has made quite a name for itself worldwide - it is seamless in terms of the style of products it can produce, and smart thanks to its performance. KARL MAYER's first narrow, double-bar raschel machine was launched onto the world market in the third quarter of 2008, and since then this production machine has proved to be a real success story for many customers in their day-to-day operations.

The DJ 6/2 (EL) was ready for unveiling at the Shanghaitex 2009 trade fair. The new machine is based on the successful, compact, narrow DJ series, and is available in gauges E 24 and E 28, gauges that have also recently been introduced for the DJ 4/2. The DJ 6/2 also has two ground guide bars more than its sister machine, which is already available on the market (Fig. 1), and can be fitted with electronic guide bar drive (EL). These features have considerably extended the range of patterns that can be produced and the machine's flexibility.

The DJ 6/2 (EL) can produce a range of seamless or virtually seamless articles - from pantyhose and stockings to underwear and sportswear.

The EL system enables patterning to be carried out with a high degree of flexibility, and even small batches can be processed extremely efficiently. This greatly simplifies the processes involved in product development. Especially pattern collections can be made up with minimum effort. Large repeats can also be worked, enabling completely new products to be produced.

In addition to the EL system and the ground guide bars, of which there are now four, the tried-and-tested patterning elements can produce a wide range of different designs required by seamless articles. A jacquard system with two jacquard guide bars, piezo technology for control of the jacquard needles, the KAMCOS® system with Multi-Speed facility and electronic beam drives enable the customer to produce high-quality, jacquard-patterned, seamless clothing or garments with fewer seams efficiently on one machine.

The RSJ 5/1 EL has already been showing the development potential offered by the combination of the EL system and the jacquard bars for producing stretch warp-knitted fabrics. In simple terms, when considering the patterning principles, two RSJ 3/1 machines could be placed back-to-back to form a single DJ model.

The RDPJ 6/2, 138" is furthermore available, and is particularly suitable for processing large batches. This dependable, double-bar raschel machine is complemented by the compact, high-speed DJ series (Fig. 2). Textile manufacturers are extremely impressed by this concept. 'The number of orders has been better than expected since the DJ series was introduced. In the light of the current economic situation, companies are trying to improve their competitive edge by coming up with new ideas and trying new approaches. Our DJ 6/2 can help them to do this,' says Oliver Mathews, the sales manager. The new DJ series, with its high performance potential, is a welcome starter model - for knitting companies looking to break into new areas of business, as well as for producers of seamless article in search of new, innovative technologies.

KARL MAYER sees a huge potential in the market for seamless products. This company is consolidating and extending its expertise in this area, and is stepping up its R & D efforts in this field. The sales manager, Andreas Fauerbach, has been appointed to coordinate the company's operations worldwide.
