Karl Mayer is stepping up its operations in the home textile sector. The company has optimised its machine technology for producing fine, fashionable, net curtain fabrics, and has created a stylish collection to show examples of the products.
Karl Mayer is working on a gauge of E 28 for home textile applications. With its finer gauge, this tricot machine with weft insertion is designed to produce fashionable embroidery. Delicate veil-like fabrics with lustrous effects produced by the shimmering yarns can be produced as well as filigree fabrics with subtle linear designs. The TM Weft works on a combination of a pillar stitch, inlay and magazine weft to produce unconventional embroidery. The yarn, which is incorporated over the entire working width, creates a different look and guarantees crosswise stability, which prevents undesirable elongation when the fabric is rotated about an angle of 90° for use as net curtains.
If the pattern effects are not going to be embroidered on, but rather incorporated directly into the net curtaining fabrics, the Weft. Fashion TM 3 would be the machine of choice. This new tricot machine has three guide bars and can insert medium-weight fancy yarns as magazine weft yarns. The delicately patterned fabrics combine fine lattice grounds with a variety of attractive linear designs.
