Buyers from India made up for 26 per cent of the 1,650 buyers who visited the German knitting technologies manufacturer's stall at ITMA 2015.

“Of the rest of the 1,650 visitors, the Karl Mayer team received 11 per cent from Italy, 7 per cent from Turkey and 4 per cent each from Germany and the US,” a Karl Mayer press release informed.

In the stall admeasuring 1,200 sq. metres over two levels, the company showed nine ground-breaking machines and nine new developments for the textile and services sectors.

The exhibits were staged extremely effectively in a futuristic setting, while a multimedia show and curved and organic shapes covered with textiles invited visitors to take a look into the future.

Among the warp knitting machines, was the new HKS 2-SE machine which presents a multitude of innovation.

The HKS 4-M EL with its high productivity and maximum flexibility was another highlight during the trade fair, especially in combination with the DS OPTO-EC intended for manufacture of patterned sectional beams.

The HKS 4-M EL was running at a speed of 2,100 and, despite its high dynamics, was operating with a high degree of precision.

According to Karl Mayer, at maximum speeds, the shog movement for the underlap is executed precisely in just 6.3 ms.

“What is more, the extensive patterning potential of this new machine, which is the result of the EL function, is extremely impressive,” it added.

For the lace sector, there was the new TL 79/1/36 Fashion designed to produce high-end lace articles featuring relief-like patterns, while the highly productive MLF 46/24 machine is for mass producers.

The extra-wide Multi-Matic, an exhibit of Karl Mayer's Warp Preparation division has a working width of 3,600 mm, while the new MM 128/3.600 is 1,350 mm longer that its predecessor for the same number of yarns processed.

Another highlight was the VSB Size Box, which is as good-looking as it is functional, with the key element in the Pro Size sizing machine, offering numerous advantages in terms of process efficiency and quality.

In the sectional warping machine sector, it showed a study in concept and design in the shape of the Pro Warp, which combines the best of technologies of the Opt-O-Matic and the Ergotec.

The company also displayed an innovative system for the denim sector; a dyebath featuring the Double Vario technology as a key component of the Prodye denim dyeing machine.

In technical textiles, it showcased a new machine; the Wefttronic HKS, which was running at a speed of 1,500 min-1 and was equipped with a needle gauge of E 40, which is something new for the technical textiles sector.

The machine was processing a yarn having a count of dtex 33 to produce an interlining that was lighter and more flexible than any interlining ever produced before.

Karl Mayer also showed the new Karl Mayer Connect app, which provides a quick link to the manufacturer for sending out service requests and the customer benefits from faultless and efficient communication. (AR)
