Karl Mayer Adds Curtain Machine To Fascination Line
The Fascination Curtain FC 16/20 is a new high-speed, multibar net curtain machine designed by Karl
Mayer Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH, Germany, for the production of window hangings. Based on the same
technical principles as the company's Fascination Lace FL 20/16 system, the FC 16/20 also features
Karl Mayer's string bar and drive patterning concept, servo-driven ground and pattern bars, and
electronically controlled fabric take-down and batching.
The FC 16/20 is controlled by a new computer system and allows unrestricted repeat lengths, enabling a variety of designs to be produced. The machine can process a combination of coarse yarns in the pattern and fine yarns in the ground, and operates at a speed of 700 revolutions per minute.
