HKS 3-M ON impresses with an ITMA upgrade in response to the challenges of our times

A machine that KARL MAYER is proud of

The HKS 3-M ON represents the cutting-edge digital tricot machine generation in KARL MAYER’s product portfolio. For ITMA 2023, the trendsetting model was given an impressive all-round upgrade. The latest version of the HKS 3-M ON combines maximum machine performance with state-of-the-art technologies, thereby providing customers with answers to their challenges. They must focus on profitability despite rising costs, sustainability, being able to respond quickly and flexibly to the market dynamics, new business opportunities and stable value creation processes despite a shortage of skilled workers. Digitalisation particularly offers unique potential for increasing customer benefits.

“We are further developing the overall concept of our HKS 3-M ON. The focus is on digital solutions, for example with regard to patterning or product management, but also on mechanical optimisations and helpful Care Solution offers. We’re on the right track with our approach. Our customers simply loved the new possibilities,” was how Kay Hilbert, KARL MAYER’s Global Product Owner Tricot Machines, summed it up after the ITMA presentation. Rainer Müller, Vice President Sales of KARL MAYER’s Business Unit Warp Knitting, agrees: “For warp knitting professionals, the HKS 3-M ON was THE exhibition highlight.”

The latest innovations include a batching device that provides additional benefits, optimisations for working sequential patterns without speed losses, and energy-data monitoring – all presented in the form of prototypes. Further innovations simplify the handling and ensure a better product quality. Click here for detailed information.
