Mayer & Cie. to present most productive mattress machine at ITMA
At this year’s ITMA, Mayer & Cie. to present its new OVJA 2.4 EM mattress machine. Fully electronic, it produces up to 30 kilograms of fabric per hour, which demonstrably makes it the most productive machine of its kind in the world. It also scores points for ease of use and the variety of patterns it can produce. To be at the top in the long term you need to strike a balance between peaks of physical performance and phases of regenerative recovery.
The star among mattress machines: the OVJA 2.4 EM
The OVJA 2.4 EM is a new Mayer & Cie. development that is specially geared to recent changing requirements in the manufacture of mattress cover fabrics. Its focus is on maximising output, which it achieves by means of a combination of a larger number of knitting systems and a higher rotation speed. “With a system density of 2.4 the OVJA 2.4 EM tallies precisely with the current trend toward higher system densities that make higher productivity possible,” explains Thomas Zizmann, area sales manager at Mayer & Cie. “The OVJA 2.4 E,” he says, “produces up to 30 kilograms of fabric per hour. That makes it demonstrably the most productive machine of its kind in the world, as shown by its speed factor of 950.” In addition to high productivity the OVJA 2.4 EM’s impressive features include ease of use and a wide range of patterns. The horizontal weft yarn guide on each cylinder segment ensures even, easy operation, short changeover times and a high level of reliability. Thanks to the improved thread guide and the air-controlled thread fluctuation control system the thread tension remains constant even at high speeds. That keeps thread vibration to a minimum and the thread is transported safely to the needles. Despite the high productivity the especially gentle needle guidance ensures an unusually low level of needle wear and tear. At the same time the OVJA 2.4 EM offers a wide range of designs that can be changed very quickly thanks to electronic single needle selection in the cylinder.
