The recently held in-house exhibition of Karl Mayer North America concluded on a successful note in Greensboro, North Carolina where participants showed great interest in new technologies.

Representatives from US, Canada, Mexico and India in the fields knitting, weaving, fibre production, composites, aerospace industry, consulting and education were present at the exhibition.

“There is a great interest in new technologies,” confirmed Oliver Mathews, vice president sales and marketing of Karl Mayer’s Warp Knitting BU.

The exhibition with machinery show, academy courses and lectures witnessed the participation of 271 guests from 82 companies and organisations.

“The machine demonstration attracted a huge attention,” said Tony Hooimeijer, president of Karl Mayer North America.

All the participants in the event took the opportunity to learn more about the machine technology, develop new ideas for new business opportunities and enhance their know-how. The fabric production segment of Karl Mayer presented HKS 4-M EL, RDPJ 6/2 EL and RSJ 5/1 EL machines.

“The warp preparation business unit could also draw up a successful summary in terms of conversation quality and variety of visitors. The clients did not just drop in to have a look at the machines but they already arrived with a lot of detailed questions,” said Dieter Gager, vice president sales of the warp preparation BU.

“Many of the discussions focused on the displayed NOV-O-MATIC 1.000 equipped with the Multitens yarn tensioner system. The possibility to achieve high output with reduced manpower makes automatic machines especially interesting for replacement investments, because: a lot of fairly old, manual warpers are presently running in the USA,” added Gage.

“The BU technical textiles used the in-house exhibition to showcase its carbon fibre spreading unit UD 500 and to meet customers. The guests came with wide interests and very different questions. Such compact events as this in-house exhibition give me the chance to have intensive discussions with our clients. I always try to find out something about their activities, the latest trends and how we - as machinery manufacturers - can support them on the market,” explained Rainer Seuss, product manager of Karl Mayer.
