Karl Mayer Launches Revamped HKS MSU S With Parallel Weft Insertion

Germany-based warp-knitting machinery manufacturer Karl Mayer Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH has
introduced a revamped version of its HKS MSU S high-speed tricot machine with parallel weft
insertion. The new version of the machine, which is used to produce textiles used in semi-technical
and technical applications, offers optimized features such as the ability to process an increased
range of yarns including extremely fine yarns such as 17-decitex polyester filament yarns and
improved versatility in incorporating reinforced yarns. According to the company, the machine can
easily process long underlaps, and through use of the weft repeat option, can incorporate
reinforced yarns only at the points at which they’re needed. The HKS MSU S also can alternate zones
with different densities and configure the segments produced to specific widths, transitioning
smoothly from open to dense knitted constructions using the Multi Speed function.
