Schramberg - Kern-Liebers Textile has developed a new generation of Relanit Sinkers, which have been designed to meet the increasing market demand for high speed, high quality knitted fabric production.

The Schramberg, Germany-based company has been a long-standing partner of circular knitting machine builder Mayer & Cie, which, based in nearby Albstadt, recently celebrated the 30th anniversary of its renowned Relanit circular knitting technology. As the demand for higher quality fabrics continues to grow, so in turn is their a requirement for improved machine settings and the tolerances of the ancillary equipment, a factor that requires a higher standard of specification for the Relanit Sinkers.

"The textile market is in continual change," says Kern Liebers. "The technical standards of the machines and the know-how of all persons involved become higher and higher. In addition to the need of high-speed machines, the specifications of the knitted fabric require increased standards with regard to the strength and mesh structure. In pursuit of this trend, the adjustment of all equipped elements for the knitting process is indispensable. Only then the highest quality standard can be achieved in order to assure the customer satisfaction at the maximum level."

The result is a new generation of sinkers, which enable the reliable production of all kinds of knitted fabrics. According to Kern Liebers, the new sinker technology ensures a uniform pattern, even for highly advanced knitted fabrics. "Based on our long experience as an OEM supplier for Mayer & Cie, we have managed the perfect adjustments to reach the latest demands of the markets," says Kern Liebers. "This new 'High End' product at the highest quality level is a further completion of the worldwide biggest sinker program made by Kern-Liebers Textile.

"For these high class knitting machines we recommend Kern-Liebers original sinkers only. This ensures that that customers benefit from the highest possible standards offered by the circular machine manufacturer. Kern-Liebers Textile always ensures the original quality without any compromise."
