Seamless Smart narrow machine series targeted to seamless hosiery and lingerie producers.
Karl Mayer’s DJ 4/2 Seamless Smart narrow double-needle-bar raschel knitting machine in a
gauge of E 24
Features include: a 44-inch working width and a gauge of E 24; a speed of 800 to 900
stitches per minute; two ground guides and two jacquard bars, each configured in two shog lines, to
enable the pattern versatility achieved with six shog lines; Karl Mayer’s jacquard mechanism; piezo
jacquard-needle-control technology; Karl Mayer Command System (KAMCOS®) with the Multispeed system;

The company is promoting the new machine series as an economically priced supplement to its

operated and maintained without the need to have a large workforce, enables efficient new product
development, and offers flexibility for small batch production.
