Made of top quality German steel and Perunal, a ultra-stiff material which is also being used in aviation and aerospace industries, these engineering marvels have been manufactured to absolute perfection. Product quality has been enhanced ever since the acquisition of the Mayer & Cie. OV machines, defects have been significantly reduced and we are now able to provide even better products to our clients.

With 33% more gauges and 40% higher RPM, we are able to boost our productivity by an extra 150% in total compared to the Taiwanese knitting machines which have been replaced. As the result of increased productivity, we can assure our clients with consistent product supplies, securing one of our top operation priorities.
