Karl Mayer Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH, Germany, offers a revamped version of its HKS MSU S
high-speed tricot machine with parallel weft insertion to produce textiles for semi-technical and
technical uses. Optimized features include the ability to process an increased range of yarns
including extremely fine yarns, and improved versatility in incorporating reinforced yarns. The
company says the machine can easily process long underlaps; and, in using the weft repeat option,
can incorporate reinforced yarns only at the points at which they’re needed. It also can alternate
zones with different densities and configure them to specific widths, transitioning smoothly from
open to dense constructions using the Multi Speed function.
