Mayer, a circular knitting machine manufacturer offers a wide variety of machines. Its Spinit 3.0 E combines spinning and knitting in one machine and what’s more, it saves energy, resources, space and time in producing single jersey fabrics.Mayer is the first manufacturer to merge these two processes that had previously been separate both technically and ideologically.
Normally, yarn is processed into a textile fabric on circular knitting machines of Mayer. The yarn comes from a spinning mill, where it is manufactured in a complex and energy-intensive process. The new Mayer spinning and knitting machine, in contrast, does not wait for the finished yarn to arrive from the spinning mill; it uses roving and is thereby able to combine in one machine, the Spinit 3.0 E, the previously strictly separate processes of spinning and knitting. Several other machines are no longer required, reducing the space required by about a third.
The process takes less time, reducing the amount of energy required to about two-thirds of what the conventional manufacturing process uses, with a positive effect on the carbon dioxide balance. The spinning and knitting machine also helps to save valuable cotton. Leftover roving on the spools is not waste; it can be sent straight back to the spinning mill.
