Crank Box

The crank box stands for stability and a product success

Since the founding of KARL MAYER, non-uniform gears have been used for the knitting machines. Today, the crankcase is the actual heart of a warp knitting machine.

In it, the necessary warp knitting movement is generated by non-uniform gears and transmitted to the active levers of the individual warp knitting elements via linkages. Different non-uniform gears are used here.

Our current crank box principle has been reinforced for 30 years, with the fastest machine running speed of 4.400 stitch rows per minute. Especially within Tricot machines in the last years, our crank boxes have enabled the highest performance. In combination with the other machine parts, the crank box assures the most stable productivity and quality of the fabric.
