Stylish swimwear from Karl Mayer’s Textile Product Development department shows the potential of the five-bar RJ 5/1 N.
Leading machine builder Karl Mayer is continually adapting its Rascheltronic range to the needs of the market. With adjusted performance profiles, the efficient raschel machines are intended to give customers the edge in their dynamic business fields.
It was only at the end of last year that the manufacturer launched a highly productive model, the RJ 5/1 N, which it says sets trends in the production of chic lingerie fabrics and inelastic, lace-like fabrics.
Now stylish swimwear from Karl Mayer’s Textile Product Development department shows the potential of this five-bar newcomer.
The RJ 5/1 N can be used to produce typical RSJ fabrics, such as locknit produced with three guide bars, SpotNet qualities and elastic or rigid Powernet qualities, and to create effective seamless constructions. Front and back parts are produced directly on the machine, into which opaque areas and open pattern parts are alternately incorporated as required, and even lettering is seamlessly incorporated.
Appropriately designed leg, neck and back cut-outs can also be integrated and do not require seams thanks to the free-cut design. Only the side seams need to be closed as part of the confectioning process
