MISSION: CYCLING TO WORK

27 Mahloneses have been pedalling hard

From 1 Mai to 31 August, there again was a mission called: Cycle to your workplace! For 16 years already the hands-on-activity for health promotion, initiated by AOK and ADFC (Common German Bicycle Club), exists. Almost as long as that, Mahlo is taking part in it. This year also, the Mahlo-employes pushed the pedals diligently.

The initiative’s main aim is to encourage having fun bycicling and exercising. Because one fact is obvious: anybody who leaves their car its parking spot more often, is not only doing something for their health but is also protecting the evironment. During the campaign, the participants have to cycle to work on at least 20 days. 27 Mahloneses – more than ten percent of the staff though – passed this test with flying colours.  Wind and weather conditions  are not used as an excuse by many. For them, the bycicle is the best way to go to work. That is also true for every sixth employed person in Germany.

Franz Gallmeier, chairman of the works committee, and CEO Rainer Mestermann praised the motivation and sportsmanship. Mestermann emphasised the athletic performance of the Mahloneses: “You conquered your weaker inner self time and time again. Together you certainly gathered several thousand kilometer.” The longest distance had René Thurow to conquer. His daily way to work are 16 Kilometers – one way! Mestermann advised his employees to always ensure their own safety and wished them a safe journey. As an acknowledgement for their performance, every participant got an Infuser-bottle.

Tecnología Regulador de la calada

 

El “warp separator” (separador de los hilos de urdimbre) es una tecnología de calada muy apreciada de Bonas que permite separar aún más los hilos de urdimbre en los dientes del peine. Así se evita que los hilos se peguen entre sí en el cruce, lo cual resulta en una calada mejor. Con los ajustes finos de calada y la posibilidad warp separator, Bonas ofrece una flexibilidad total y las condiciones óptimas para todo tipo de aplicaciones de tejido. Esta tecnología warp separator sólo es posible en los jacquards de Bonas y está disponible en dos versiones: el warp separator para tejido rizado, para separar el pelo de los hilos de urdimbre de fondo y el odd-even warp separator, para separar los hilos de urdimbre pares e impares.

 

An online process for the non-stop production of sacks on KARL MAYER’s RDS 11 EL machine

An online process for the non-stop production of sacks on KARL MAYER’s RDS 11 EL machine

KARL MAYER has revamped its machine technology for producing packaging sacks. As before, this fully integrated system enables ready-to-use, high-quality products to be manufactured non-stop from film at maximum efficiency. What is new, however, is the machine’s level of flexibility. As the most important element, the double-bar raschel machine has been equipped with an EL pattern drive, which enables variable sack lengths and lappings to be worked.

Five blades per inch produce tape yarns from film

An FTL unit is located at the beginning of the processing chain for producing sacks. This element in the production line has a cutting bar for cutting a double-layered, primary polyolefin film into tape yams and drawing them in a heating zone to produce monoaxial flat film yarns. These yarns are delivered to the Double-bar raschel machine, in depending of the demand. The needs-based delivery of the tape yarns is a decisive factor for online process control, just as is the exact harmonisation of the machine technology as a whole (Fig. 1). “With this non-stop sequence, everything must function perfectly and all the components have to be in perfect harmony, rather like an orchestra,” says Rainer Baier, a product developer, at the machine presentation.

A tried-and-tested basic design

An RDS 11 EL is used to knit (Fig. 2) the tape yarns to produce complete sacks. The machine is supplied with a width of 193″, a gauge of E 6, a threading arrangement of 1 in, 2 out, and a set of warp knitting elements comprising two compound needle bars, two knock-over comb bars, four ground guide bars and seven pattern bars. With this configuration, the RDS 11 EL works a combination of a pillar stitch and weft lapping. Two separate webs are produced, one by ground guide bars, GB 4 and GB 5, on the rear needle bar and one by GB 7 and GB 8 on the front needle bar. The two mesh webs are joined together on one side in the working direction by pattern bar, PB 6. The seam forms the base of the packaging sack. The opposite side is open to enable the sack to be filled. The openings in the horizontal direction are also closed, by changing the lapping, to produce the side seams of the sack.

The EL facility produces customised sacks

The RDS 11 EL offers a number of options for the efficient production of ready-to-use sacks, including the incorporation of sealing tapes, flaps for automatic filling, an adhesive strip for the subsequent application of labels, and contact yarns for subsequent process control. Above all, the dimensions of the product can be varied. For example, the opening widths of the nets can be varied via the stitch density, i.e. via the take-down, and by the lapping. The depth of the sack can also be changed via the threading arrangement of the guide bars as a function of the number of webs produced in parallel. The width of the sacks can also be varied as required. The width is determined by the repeat length, which can be freely selected and changed easily. The reason for this is that, unlike its predecessor, the RSD 11 EL has been equipped with a new feature, the EL pattern drive (Fig. 3).

This electronic system replaces the old, mechanical NNC type. It does not use pattern chains or discs and enables the pattern to be changed easily. The repeat lengths can also be changed easily to adjust the size of the sacks. The RDS 11 EL has also been newly equipped with the tried-and-tested KAMCOS®-system, so that its extensive potential can be easily exploited.

Stacks or rolls – both types of take-up are possible

Two systems are available for taking-up the warp-knitted sacks, i.e. the 26/6 batching unit and the STMR sack separating machine.

The batching unit produces rolls from the sack webs which, as “automatic sacks”, are fed fully automatically to the filling machine. Alternatively, the STMR process produces piles of individual sacks that are ready to be filled.

In this case, the textile webs run via a roller feed unit to a thermal cutting unit on a swivel-mounted frame (Fig. 4). Once the predetermined width of the sack has been reached, it is cut by a horizontal stroke of the cutting unit along the side seams. The RDS 11 EL incorporates a marking thread (Fig. 5), so that sensor technology can be used to detect the cutting points. The separated sacks are then stacked using the swivel-mounted frame until the set number has been reached. They are then removed via a conveyor belt (Fig. 6).

A machine that is ideally suited to the market

Thanks to online process control and the high efficiency of the RDS 11 EL, KARL MAYER’s line for producing sacks operates at an extremely high production rate. At a speed of 900 courses/min, an average of about 900 sacks per hour can be produced – depending on the dimensions selected and the stitch density.

The market is extremely impressed by this high productivity and flexibility. The first complete line with FTL unit and batching unit for automatic sacks left KARL MAYER’s headquarters in Obertshausen in September 2016. This delivery was the result of two years of successful development work.

DENIM GALLERY: AND THE WINNER IS…

DENIM GALLERY: AND THE WINNER IS…

At the New York Denim Days, which took place between 30 September and 1 October, visitors had the opportunity to admire the whole Denim Gallery project, and get to know the designers who took our challenge: Grace Warland, Matias Sandoval, Serena Conti, Su Kim & Jon Rouleau, Mika Mitarai, Juan Manuel Gomez, Ilinca Trif, Stefan Vella, and Greta Giannini.

Tonello Denim Gallery

The winner of the contest had already been selected during the recent “Inspiring” event by a jury that included some of the most important denim makers in the world. On the first day of New York Denim Days, Serena Conti was acclaimed as the first place winner, followed by Matias Sandoval, second, and Mika Mitarai, third. As the winner, Serena won an entire week of “creative freedom” at our Creative Area, where she can develop her own collection, experimenting without limits: a real paradise for a denim designer.

Graduated with honors from the Faculty of Design and Arts in Venice, Serena specializes in fashion design and illustration.

  • In 2008 her project “Confidences of Elements” was recognized internationally and exhibited at the Ichinomya Fashion Design Center in Japan.
  • In 2009 she collaborated with an exhibition of fashion photography in the trend research section of Palazzo Pitti for Pitti Filati starting in Florence. Also in 2009, she was asked to partecipate as a costume designer for the opening parade of the Venice Art Biennial directed by Arto Lindsay.
  • From 2010 to 2013 she worked in Venice as a consultant specializing in the denim department, planning and designing collections for major brands such as John Galliano and C’N’C Costume National.
  • At present, she is working as a freelance fashion and denim designer, even though, being an illustrator, her work actually spans many areas, including advertising, posters, websites, theatre sets, solo exhibitions and collaborations with national television networks and magazines.

“Waterloove” and “Boro Texnology”: these are the titles of the two concepts presented by Serena Conti, representing Reality and Vision to her. The first part was described by the designer as an interweaving of different realities: the past, memories, and wars; while the second part she describes as a connection between technology and the most romantic and natural of all possible worlds. This skillful playing with contrasts proved to be the deciding factor for the jury when voting for her concepts.

Tonello Denim Gallery Serena Conti

Many the technologies have been used by Tonello to reinterpret the creative visions of Serena Conti: ECOfree 2, the ultimate ozone washing system that allows treating garments with both ozone in the water and in the air in the same machine, thus creating new effect; Laser Blaze, which has been used to reproduce the intricate illustrations realized by the designer and to create rips and breakages; and NoStone®, used to realize stone-wash effects without the use of pumice stones, in a truly eco-sustainable way.

And so concludes what has been described as “one of the coolest events” of the Denim Days event, celebrating the thousands of potential expressions of Jeans, emphasizing their multi-directional, multi-sensorial, multi-medial and multi-dimensional expansion with an inspiring combination of art and fashion, painting and performance.

AND THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING.
SOMETHING EVEN MORE ORIGINAL AND UNPREDICTABLE IS COMING.
