Karl Mayer Upgrades HKS 3-M ON Tricot Machine With New Features
Karl Mayer has upgraded its HKS 3-M ON model of Tricot machine, which has been named HKS 3-M ON PLUS. This upgrade allows net-like fabrics to be produced in a variety of densities and structures.
“These fabrics include square marquisettes and shoe fabrics, with both also realisable in coarse gauges,” the German company said in a press release.
The extended fabric spectrum increases the limits of the HKS 3-M’s range of uses, and unlocks new potential areas of applications.
According to Karl Mayer, the HKS 3-M ON PLUS is the go-to machine especially when rough, durable textiles are required.
The performance upgrade is based on specific technical adaptations, which include reinforced needles and knitting elements, and a more robust knitting motion.
The sinkers now also have more room to manoeuvre, which increases the patterning flexibility. The HKS 3-M ON PLUS offers all the features and technologies of the latest digital generation of three-bar HKS models.
These include a batching device that provides additional benefits, multispeed optimisations to avoid speed losses, and energy-data monitoring, a prototype of which was shown at ITMA 2023.
HKS 3-M ON PLUS is available in the gauges E 14 to E 28, and with working widths of 130”, 180” and 210”.
