Karl Mayer HKS 2-SE Sets Elastic Tricot Output Records

Germany-based Karl Mayer Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH now offers a redesigned version of its HKS warp-knitting machine, the HKS 2-SE, for the production of stretch charmeuse and double tricot fabrics for swimwear, sportswear and lingerie applications. The "S" stands for "short stroke," and the "E" stands for "elastane." Only elastane yarns can be processed in guide bar GB 2.

According to the company, the new machine can achieve record-breaking speeds of 4,400 revolutions per minute (rpm) in the production of stretch tricot fabrics, compared to the previous benchmark of 4,000 rpm. Karl Mayer further reports that the new model also consumes less energy and generates less noise than the earlier-generation HKS 2-3 E at comparable speeds, and the redesign has resulted in a lighter-weight, more stable machine.

The HKS 2-SE features a 130-inch working width, which can be increased to 132 inches; and it is available in E 32, E 36 and E 40 guages.
