Next generation digitalisation

At ITMA 2019, KARL MAYER successfully presented the HKS 3-M ON as one of the first machines linked to the digital world of the company. The innovative model works with data loaded directly from KM.ON’s secure cloud rather than pattern disks. It is based on the new ON pattern drive and networking the machines via k.ey. The HKS 3-M ON thus offers the simple, fast pattern change of EL gears, while doing so at the speed of machines with N pattern drives. At the WTiN virtual trade show, the manufacturer launched the next step for this development in a wider working width.

Seersucker clothing is a hit every summer season. The fabrics look cool and can be worn without breaking into a sweat. This is thanks to slightly three-dimensional relieflike fabric sides. The crepe-like surfaces ensure that the textiles do not lie directly on the skin, but are instead kept away from the body. This allows for ventilation and moisture balance. What’s more, the relief-like structures mean the pieces do not need to be ironed after washing – and also give the fabric its name. The word seersucker originates from Persian and means shir o shekar: milk and sugar.
