Using KARL MAYER’s machines for processing recycled yarn with no limitations

At ITMA in June 2019 in Barcelona, KARL MAYER was illustrating how easily yarns can be processed on its warp knitting machines whilst conserving resources at the same time.

During the fair, the new HKS 3-M-ON was producing a patterned tricot fabric carrying Trevira’s SINFINECO label. This fibre producer awards the label for textiles that are produced from its sustainable products. The range includes fibres and filaments made entirely from high-quality, recycled chips. The regranulate is obtained from PET bottles.

In Barcelona, this high-speed tricot machine was processing a textured polyester filament yarn of dtex 76 f 24 and was running non-stop at 2900 min-1 with no constraints during the demonstration. A top-quality fabric with a small eco-footprint was being produced.
