Mayer & Cie.'s Relanit: 30 years on, still going strong
Relanit line’s current flagship is the Relanit 3.2 HS, which is one of the most productive single jersey machines in the market, both for open width as well as tubular.
Relanit’s anniversary year started on October 13, 2017. Relanit is one of Mayer & Cie.’s (MCT) most important and most successful machine types. Relanit uses relative technology, the circular knitting machine manufacturer’s proprietary development, launched at ITMA in 1987, when the trade fair opened on 13 October in Paris. In its current version the Relanit 3.2 HS is one of the most productive single jersey machines on the market. At the same time, its energy consumption is 30 per cent below that of a conventional knitting machine. Relanit is also part of Mayer & Cie.’s latest innovation, its spinitsystems technology. Thanks to relative technology a fragile fibre bundle can become a fluffy single jersey fabric.
“Nothing but Relanit”
From the 1987 ITMA on, Mayer & Cie. began to receive orders for machines with relative technology. The first three Relanits were shipped to Berlin in January 1988. Jürgen Müller assembled them. He is still with Mayer & Cie., as are his colleagues Johannes Bitzer, Axel Brünner, Rolf Gonser and Thomas Maier. All five of them worked as technicians in final assembly back in 1987. In this interview, they recall their pioneering days with the Relanit.
