Germany's Mayer & Cie. launches upgrade kits for knitting machines - Fibre2Fashion

The aim is to improve the performance of the existing machines and to extend their service life. In addition to the machine-specific upgrade kits, the company now starts offering tailor-made spare parts packages. They are intended to ensure machine availability and equip customers with spare parts for standard situations. In addition, they offer a degree of independence from possible failures in the supply chain and rising transport costs, the company said in a press release.

“Longevity of our circular knitting machines is definitely a property that our satisfied customers mention regularly,” Mayer & Cie. sales director Wolfgang Muller said. The company estimates that up to 50 per cent of all the circular knitting machines it has ever made are still around in the market somewhere.

Value retention, maintenance and upgrades for existing machines are a key issue for the company – and for the customers who successfully use existing Mayer & Cie equipment. That’s why the company recently launched customised upgrade kits to improve the long-term performance of machines. Frank Stuhrmann, head of the spare parts, Mayer & Cie., adds, “In our development department, we are constantly working on improving existing machines and their components, and we would not want to withhold this progress from our existing customers.”

Stuhrmann and his team have found that existing machines have a firm place in the machine park and that operators do not wish to replace them anytime soon. “This means it makes much more sense to help our customers to enhance the properties of their existing machines, rather than to offer them a completely new machine,” he explained.

Compared to a new machine, upgrade kits are a low-cost investment that delivers clearly defined benefits. For example, an improved yarn guide ensures a significant increase in the plating reliability and output of the machine in question.

Most of the upgrade kits are machine-specific; the aforementioned yarn guide ensures a boost in productivity for the Relanit 3.2 II and Relanit 3.2 S. For S4 machines an optimised fluff blowing device can be the solution. It ensures that less fluff is knitted in and thereby improves the fabric quality. It also reduces downtimes that would otherwise be required for cleaning. Upgrade kits suitable for most Mayer & Cie. machines are the edge trimmer to open a fabric hose before the fabric’s rolling-up and the laying facility for high-quality hose fabric. General benefits of the upgrade packages also include a perfect fit for individual machines, a long-term security investment and upgrade warranties.

In addition to individual upgrade kits Mayer & Cie. now offers spare parts packages. They too are customised for individual machines. When purchasing a machine, the customer can also order a small or a large spare parts package. Selected specially for the machine in question, it contains the most important consumables and spare parts. “We are all familiar with the situation. You are in a tight corner and urgently need a spare part that is then not available. The best-case consequence is unnecessary stress, and the worst case is missed delivery dates,” Stuhrmann added.

The new spare parts packages are designed to reduce these situations to a minimum and to ensure instead that the customer is equipped to deal with at least the standard cases. They also increase customers’ independence of supply chain failures and rising transport costs.
