Germany based and globally renowned warp knitting machine producer – Karl Mayer opened a “Karl Mayer Academy” in the Indian textile hub of Surat on June 30.

This academy will provide training to learn and understand warp knitting production as well as warp knitting fabrics and its various possibilities. The training will be provided on a HKS 3-M 130'' warp knitting machine.

The academy will run two courses. The “Operators’ course” is a 3-day course that provides basic know-how to operate warp knitting machines.

The “Warp Knit Basic course” is a 7-day course teaching basic knowledge of warp knitting technology and possibilities.

Karl Mayer also displayed its latest warp knitting machine, the HKS 3-M at the academy, which is suitable for very low until high stitch densities. The machine works with fine and coarse gauges.

The HKS 3-M operates at a speed of up to 2800 RPM. This speed is 15% higher than previous generation machines.
