Feedback on the ML 46 in the production hall - KARL MAYER Textilmaschinenfabrik GmbH

The ML 46 has proven to be a best-seller, especially in Turkey. KARL MAYER exhibited this successful machine, which is part of its ML series, at this year’s ITM Texpo Eurasia from 29 May to 6 June in Istanbul, and detected a great deal of interest in this machine. The visitors were extremely impressed by the ML 46 during the demonstration. This multibar raschel machine is extremely productive, accurate and flexible, and is also easy to operate and change over, thus enabling its customers to react quickly to the many and rapidly changing demands of their markets. The Turkish textile producer, YKS Tekstil Sanayi ve Tic. A. Ş., was quick to recognise the advantages of the ML 46 and bought the machine at the fair. This company, which was founded in 1996, has been dealing successfully with KARL MAYER for some time now. Last year, the 111,111th machine produced by this specialist textile machinery producer was shipped to the company’s headquarters in Bursa. At the same time, YKS entered the realms of lace raschel machines, when the FL 20/16 was delivered in the summer of 2012. With all the knowledge and experience gained with using the Fascination Lace machine, the head of the company, Serhan Filibeli, and his staff had no problems whatsoever in familiarising themselves with all the steps involved in operating the ML 46. When giving feedback to KARL MAYER’s product developer, Jamie Heather (Fig.), he said, “The machine is very easy to set up and operate. Whenever I was worried whilst I was away on business and contacted the production team to see how things were going with the ML 46, I was always reassured. Everything was running perfectly – even without me.” The range of products that YKS is currently producing on the multibar raschel machine includes smooth, patterned, lace fabrics for the outerwear sector. Serhan Filibeli said that the machine, with its gauge of E 24, offered a full range of possibilities when producing stylish outerwear.
