Karl Mayer’s machine MLF 60/32 delivers the same efficiency and quality as the low- bar version, but enables a wider range of patterns to be produced. Larger and more opulent motifs and a wide variety of edge borders can be worked.

Karl Mayer launched a new generation of highly efficient, multibar fall-plate machines at ITMA 2015. The productivity of the first machine in this range, the MLF 46/24, 242″, was twice that of its predecessor. This new machine became very well established on the market, and was upgraded the following year in time for the ITMA Asia + Citme 2016 exhibition by equipping it with more guide bars.
The samples of all-over lace shown here illustrate the exceptional features of the MLF 60/32. The samples were produced in a gauge of E 24 and, despite their different looks, were processed with just a single needle repeat. The 144 needles worked one repeat to create the large-format design, two for the filigree areas and three pattern repeats for the star-shaped flowers.
As well as varying the dimensions of the motifs, the appearance of the ground can also be varied extensively. Open spider-web constructions with a jacquard look, processed with the ground and pattern bars, can be produced on the MLF 60/32 just as easily as a simple tulle ground, whose subtle, jacquard-like constructions enhance the overall effect. The lace fabrics were produced by Erke Textile.
This Turkish company was founded in 2004 as Beeteks Tekstil, produc- ing stretch powernet, embroidery grounds and tulle – all on Karl Mayer’s machines. In 2014, this manufacturer extended its production capacity to incorporate jacquard raschel ma- chines. The patterns were created by the designer, Wolfgang Häusle, who is based in Obertshausen.
