Karl Mayer launched the new HKS 3-M-ON at ITMA 2019, the first three-bar HKS machine with electronic guide bar control, which is linked to the digital world of KM.ON. This market leader has scored a direct hit with this machine. The HKS 3-M-ON impressed the visitors in Barcelona with its new flexibility and exceptional ease of handling when changing the pattern, and also by its high production rate. This new machine can reach a maximum speed of 2,900 min-1, depending on the working width. This makes it the fastest, high-speed tricot machine with electronic pattern drive that has ever been built. It is also just as fast as the current HKS 3-M model with N-drive, but it is also much more flexible.
