Mayer & Cie. to show marketable spin-knit machine at ITMA 2015

The D4 2.2 II, a high performance interlock (HPI) machine will also be on show at ITMA. Mayer & Cie. has further improved this tried and tested machine in its ability for handling fibre yarns such as cotton as well as in respect of both surface and distance.
Customers, prospective customers, journalists and guests will be able to visit the long-established circular knitting machine manufacturer Mayer & Cie. (MCT) at Stand H 111 in Hall 5 of the ITMA textile industry fair. On its 480 square meter, two-story stand in Milan the company will be showcasing its latest interlock, striper, single jersey and mattress material machines. In addition, the company will be presenting a spin-knit machine, a machine that spins and knits at the same time and is to be launched at ITMA 2015.
Mayer & Cie. sets standards

One of the exhibits on show in Milan will be a single jersey machine for elastomer plating that uses the tried and trusted relative technology developed by Mayer & Cie., which generally means a gentle stitch formation. This gentle needle and sinker guidance also reduces energy consumption. At the same time this single jersey machine delivers peak productivity along with a significant improvement in process reliability. The latter also applies to the striper machine that will be on show for visitors to the Mayer & Cie. stand. This machine is also a member of the Relanit family and has an improved yarn guide for a perfect yarn feed. The stripe patterns can be programmed swiftly and simply on a touch display.

A high performance interlock (HPI) machine will also be on show. The D4-2.2 II’s forte is its peak productivity. With 4.4 systems per inch it produces up to 400 kg of fabric per day. And this machine is now also perfectly familiar with handling fibre yarns such as cotton. Mayer & Cie. has also continued to improve the D4-2.2 II in respect of both surface and distance.

In keeping with the popularity of its machines for manufacturing mattress covers, Mayer & Cie. will be featuring at ITMA a further development in the double jersey double face department. The model on exhibit performs with maximum flexibility for all patterns and weights with 1.6 systems per inch. Thanks to a higher rotational speed, customers can expect higher productivity here too – along with best fabric quality and the lowest error rate.
Another machine that will be on show not at but outside of the trade fair grounds is a jacquard plus machine. Interested trade visitors are welcome to take a look at it at Savio Macchine, Via Milano, I 20020 Lainate (Milan).
Spinning and knitting with one machine

spinitsystems is Mayer & Cie.’s spin-knit technology. Based on this technology, Mayer & Cie. presented its prototype of a spin-knit machine at ITMA 2011 in Barcelona. Right on time for ITMA 2015, Mayer & Cie. stages a marketable and fully functional model and starts bringing the machine into the market.

A spin-knit machine combines the spinning and the circular knitting process. Single knitwear is manufactured not from yarn but from spinning mill roving. That makes the production process much shorter because ring spinning, cleaning and rewinding are no longer required.

spinitsystems is able to process a big variety of short-cut and staple fibres. Raw materials in their pure form can also be used, such as 100 percent combed cotton or other natural and synthetic fibres. Standard blends can also be used on the spinitsystems.


Mayer & Cie. goes for sustainability

Except for the spin-knit machine, all of the Mayer machines mentioned above are equipped with the SENSOBlueRS needle oil recycling system developed by Mayer & Cie. That means they require significantly less fresh needle oil to run perfectly than knitting machines running on conventional systems that consume about 2.5 to three litres of oil a day on the basis of a 20-hour working day. With the recycling system fresh oil consumption can be reduced by up to 30 per cent, depending on the machine. To make sure that the needle oil always gets to where it is needed, Mayer uses the SensoBlue process, thereby ensuring that the right places are oiled and no oil is wasted.
