use of an electronic guide bar control system offers even

appropriate configuration are also available for special
requirements, such as the production of terry and pile
A new model has now been added to the wide range
of four-bar machines available: the newcomer is called
TM 4-S and is with its performance focused on the
volume market. Its performance features include an
exceptionally high speed â€“ the maximum is 1,800 rpm
â€“ and a working width of 280â€, which can be further
extended by 10â€. The TM 4-S therefore offers maximum
productivity at an extremely attractive price, and the
needle and guide bars were manufactured using proven
carbon fibre technology to achieve high temperature
stability and low weight.
The new development also relies on tried-and-tested
operability and quality.
The TM 4-S is extremely easy to
handle thanks to KARL MAYERâ€™s well-thought-out
man-machine interface and meets the exacting
requirements set by the Group of companies.
As with all models in the four-bar product family, thenew machine covers an extremely diverse production
spectrum. Lightweight silk net and lingerie articles can
be converted just as easily and efficiently as raised velour
fabrics, shoe fabrics, home textiles or even upholstery
fabrics for the automotive sector.
The TM 4-S made its first public appearance as part of
an in-house show at KARL MAYER (CHINA), which took
place in June 2021 over the course of the ITMA ASIA +
CITME. The performance demonstration for this rapid
all-rounder was met with great interest here; numerous
project meetings were held during the exhibition,
thereby generating ideas for how to use the newcomer.
From the third quarter 2021, the TM 4-S will be sold.
It is currently available in gauges E 28 and E 32, and the
standard equipment includes a 4 x 32â€ beam frame
