Karl Mayer Develops The TM 4 T-EL Tricot Machine

Germany-based Karl Mayer Textilmaschinenfabrik recently introduced the TM 4 T-EL four-bar terry tricot machine, which features integrated electronic guide bar control (EL) and the KAMCOS® Motion Control/Multi Speed system for extended design capabilities. Options for the single- or double-sided loop-pile fabrics include smooth edges, relief-like ribs and 3-D chessboard patterns with large repeats if desired. The fabrics are suitable for the production of beach towels and textiles for cleaning products. Additional design elements - such as cord-like rib constructions, rectangular patterns in different sizes, flat edges and multicolored effects - can be created in the vertical flat stripes by selecting the appropriate threading-in arrangement. Flat edges may be sewn into hems, or embroidered with a trademark. According to the company, the warp-knitted terry cloth fabrics have a soft feel with firmly anchored loops.

The machine runs at 1,400 meters per minute (m/min), and features electronic controls for yarn let-off, ground guide bars and fabric take-down. All machine parameters and data can be input using the touchscreen controls, with a USB stick or via the manufacturer's computer network.

The company plans to launch a version of the machine for cotton processing. The TM 4-TS EL should be available during quarter 4 2013.
