Twenty-five tonnes of knitwear per day is the Rubenis knitting factory’s production capacity. The fully integrated textile company based in Istanbul, Turkey, commenced operations at the beginning of 2021 in its new, state-of-the-art production facility with only Mayer & Cie. machines. Over thirty of the German premium manufacturer’s circular knitting machines are in use at Rubenis. They knit single jersey, double jersey, rib structures, fleece – in short, everything a customer could wish for. At its factory Rubenis uses only organic cotton from its own spinning mill. Fabric is supplied in 100- to 250-kilogram rolls.
Two thirds of the circular knitting machines on the Rubenis shop floor, all with industrial frames and housed in separate cabins to prevent fluff from spreading, are Relanit 3.2 HS models. The most common model of this highly productive machine type is the 32-inch version, followed by the 30- and 26-inch versions. All Relanit 3.2 HS machines knit to an E28 gauge. They are extraordinarily productive in processing elastomeric yarns too. Rubenis also uses several MBF 3.2 three-thread fleece machines and D4 2.2 IIs. The interlock specialists knit to an E18, the MBF 3.2 to an E24 gauge on a 32-inch frame.
