Ergnomic System Available for Karl Mayer RD 6/1-12 and RD 7/2-12 Machines
The system allows the machine operator to adjust the distance between the knock-over comb bars to change the thickness of the warp-knitted fabric as quickly and simply as possible, according to the company. At the same time, the system will automatically adjust the stitch comb to the required position based on the new fabric thickness. In addition, the handling system is designed so that using only a lever — no tools — the stitch comb can easily be swiveled out, granting access to the knitting elements in the event of a yarn break or similar machine error.
The only machine adjustment that must be done manually is moving the knock-over comb bar distance to match the height of the needle bar.
The RD series of machines features a 138-inch-wide working width; gauges of E 18, E 22 and E 24; and a maximum width between the knock-over comb bars of 12 millimeters.
