Karl Mayer Technische Textilien GmbH from Germany, world's leading supplier of warp knitting machines, warp preparation machines, and systems for producing technical textiles, has opened two new modern showrooms equipped with high-tech machines in Chemnitz and Naila, for promoting innovation and business development among its customers to suit their needs.

Textiles for technical applications are usually customised to suit the requirements of their intended application right from the production stage, and innovative technical solutions and specific know-how are needed to produce them. The showroom in Chemnitz will be ready as of September 2016 and the Naila showroom will be ready by the end of the year. €5 million were invested in setting up the machine technology.

The showroom in Chemnitz is sending out an invitation to come and try out various weft-insertion warp knitting machines and a biaxial warp knitting machine, and to see them being demonstrated. Naila is the first point of contact for multiaxial warp knitting machines.

The high-speed raschel machine, WEFTTRONIC II RS, with weft insertion facility, and ideal for producing coating carriers and advertising substrates having a high tear resistance, will be displayed at the showroom. A WEFTTRONIC II RS 2, 268", gauge E 18, and two WEFTTRONIC II RS 3, gauge E 18, with a working width of 268" and 184", will be housed in the showroom.

The high-speed tricot machine, WEFTTRONIC II HKS, with weft insertion facility that produces lightweight, weft-inserted, warp-knitted textiles with high stitch densities in a wide range of gauges, will also be presented. A completely new machine gauge of E 40 is also now available. A WEFTTRONIC II HKS 2, 213", gauge E 40, will be housed in the showroom.

The high-speed warp knitting machine, BIAXTRONIC CO, processes continuous filament yarns made from glass fibres to produce biaxial textiles and composite structures. The showroom will showcase a BIAXTRONIC CO, 101", and gauge E 7.

The showroom will house an FSA 600 Plus fibre spreading unit. The machine preferably processes carbon fibres with up to 50,000 individual filaments per 7 µm diameter.

Multiaxial warp knitting machines produce multiaxial textiles for applications where a high strength and rigidity for a low weight are required in the composites sector. A COP MAX 4, 101", gauge E 5, and a COP MAX 5, 50", gauge E 5, will be available for carrying out customer trials and performance demonstrations at the showroom. (GK)
