A Raschel machine from and for China

KARL MAYER’s new RJ 5/1 offers improved price-performance ratio, and attracts a lot of attention in China

With its new machine KARL MAYER brings fresh impetus to the market of patterned Raschel fabrics in China. The newcomer with the designation RJ 5/1 was launched at an in-house show held at KARL MAYER (CHINA) during ShanghaiTex, 2019, where it was a real crowd puller.

Especially due to its excellent value for money, this highly efficient model catches the manufacturers’ attention. Offering attractive acquisition costs, the RJ 5/1 is more productive than comparable competitor products. Moreover, the machine has a highly stable and very precise machine run. The textiles produced on this machine impress by their outstanding quality. Featuring trendy designs and a style that minimizes making-up, the possible products of the RJ 5/1 are tailored to the needs of the Chinese market.

A machine for the lingerie and clothing market in China

With this machine from local production – manufacturing site is KARL MAYER (CHINA) – the Product Manager, Kriss Wang, wants to address the domestic customers belonging to the commodity market. He sees great potential for modernization projects in particular. “We submit a cost-efficient offer especially to those RSJ users, who want to modernize their factories”, explains this textile expert. The patterning portfolio of the RJ 5/1 machine includes traditional articles from the RSJ sector such as charmeuse, made with three guide bars, as well as elastic and rigid Power Net constructions. With its enormous design possibilities, this new development encourages especially the current seamless trend. Back and front parts with opaque areas, lace-like tapes and contourings for making-up are made in one piece, directly during fabric production. Leg openings and arm holes of the free-cut article do not have to be seamed. Only very few seams are required for closing the styles during the final processing. One example was shown during the in-house show at KARL MAYER (CHINA). In the course of the machine presentation, a 130" model produced a swimwear fabric in a gauge of E 32, with a lot of chic and easy make-up. Even the KARL MAYER lettering was seamlessly integrated into the eye-catching element ensemble.

Availability from 1st quarter 2020

The RJ 5/1 is available since China New Year, in the gauges of E 32 and E 28 and in a working width of 130".
