Relaunch for terry machine
Tuesday, 15 December 2009

Obertshausen - Karl Mayer is to relaunch one of its high-speed, tricot, warp knitting machines after a growth in demand for high-end fleecy terry bathrobes and towels.

The HKS 4 F terry machine, which processes filaments to produce all the usual terry fabrics with loops either on one or on both sides, was last refined at the beginning of 2007 with a number of technical adjustments that increased knitting speeds by up to 74%. However, although this upgraded model initially sold well, eventual lack of demand meant it was removed from Karl Mayer?s available range.
